My foot is supported all around. I have very flat feet and these have great arch support. They support the ankle. Everything. Miles better than my old cross trainer (which was also a Saucony, but older lesser model). These are also roomy enough for my very wide foot and a toe spacer (which I wear all the time for bunions). I can't honestly say that these shoes have the best cushioning. They are not cushy per se, but I do my insanity workouts in the basement, on the concrete floor that is covered only by a carpet remnent and a bit of carpet padding and I'm not hurting on the impacts. Knees doing ok, ankles ok. The shoes are also FAIRLY light, but a little heavier than my old shoes. They are definately heavier than a lot of the light shoes available right now but you do tend to trade support for weight. Shoes with support will tend to weigh more. But these aren't too bad.
For me they were true to size, I take a 6, I bought a 6, they fit. If you have a very narrow foot, they maybe too wide, not sure. I'm sure the laces can be tighter etc... but there really might be too much room for someone with a narrow foot.
One drawback, which to me was not worth giving a lesser rating. The look. It's ugly. I got the silver and green. It's like a moonboot or something. But, I wear them to work out, not walk a runway. So I don't really care. But I'm putting it in the review in case anyone thinks it might be a cute shoe to wear around... it's not. It's silver. Very silver. The picture doesn't do it justice how incredibly shiny this shoe is. Blinding really. I might go blind looking at it.
IF YOUR HEEL SLIDES UP AND DOWN.
(Create a more secure fit around the ankle without tightening the entire shoe).
Lace as normal until one eyelet remains on each side. Draw the lace straight up on the outside of the shoe and bring it through the last eyelet. This will create a loop. Repeat on the other side. Cross each lace over the tongue, thread it through the opposite loop, and tie. The loops help to cinch in the material around your ankle to prevent your heel from slipping without making the rest of your shoe any tighter.
IF YOUR TOES FEEL CRAMPED.
(Reduce forefoot constriction by using four shoelaces instead of two).
Remove the laces and measure them. Buy two sets (four laces) half that length. On both shoes, use one lace for the bottom three eyelets and a second lace for the upper three eyelets. The end result will be two bows on each shoe, allowing you to tie the bottom laces looser to accommodate your wider forefoot.
YOUR SHOE IS TOO TIGHT ALONG THE TOP OF YOUR FOOT.
(Use parallel lacing to secure your foot without putting pressure on the top).
Lace the first two eyelets on the big-toe side of the tongue (not the first eyelet on either side of the tongue like you normally would). Bring the lace from the first eyelet straight across to the first eyelet on the other side of the tongue and push it through. Pull it straight up the side, skipping one eyelet, and thread it through the third eyelet. Pull it straight across the tongue, and push it through the third eyelet on the opposite side. Repeat until all eyelets are laced and tied.
YOUR SHOE RUBS ONE SPOT ON THE TOP OF YOUR FOOT.
(Eliminate pressure on a "hot spot" by lacing around it, not directly over it).
Place a lipstick smear on your hot spot. Slide your bare foot into your shoe and take it out. The mark on the underside of the tongue tells you which set(s) of eyelets to skip. Lace your shoe until you reach the eyelet before the spot. Take the lace back under and pull it up through the next eyelet on the same side. Take the lace across and continue to lace. Repeat this on the other side. You'll have an empty spot on the tongue where no laces cross it, which should eliminate your pressure point.
I ordered these because I injured my left metatarsal/ball of foot wearing a pair of Nike "Frees". According to my sports doctor, they had way too much flex in sole and not nearly enough support. As a result, when I walk (I cannot run anymore), I have pain when my foot flexes.
These shoes are designed with a more ridgid shoe bed - per the Saucony description - the V2 "provides maximum deflection on impact" and this is what I needed to help with my foot injury. In this respect, they are great. However, if you are used to the more traditional Saucony footbed, you will find these may feel too "hard".
I am keeping the V2 because the ridgid foot bed is necessary with my foot injury. Having said that, if I did not have the injury, I would have returned them because they have less arch support and run to wide in the heel.
