CONS's: reduced 8mm heel to toe drop, terrible thin laces, sand and dirt get in through the mesh, shoes causes me calf pain.
I have either ran in Saucony's or Mizuno's pretty much my whole running life through marathons and ironman races. When I progressed to a neutral running shoe, I went to lightweight Mizuno's, which I love, but they wear out very quickly. I was replacing them ever 3 months or so.
Fast forward 2 years, where life has got in the way, my running stopped and "a little" weight was gained. Well I can't imagine how many shoes I would go through being overweight in a pair of Mizuno's...plus I figured I was "starting over" with running. So hence, the reason for my purchase of these stability plus shoes.
The very first thing I noticed after I slipped them on was the lack of a "heel". Yes, Saucony in their redesign has eliminated the 12mm drop from all running shoes (as far as I can tell). These have a 8 mm drop which Saucony claims "you shouldn't notice". Well I do notice! So after major calf pain - working into shin pain - I purchased a pair of heel cups. Heel cups did lesson the pain somewhat.
Now I've been running in these shoes for 6 weeks (averaging 15-20 miles a week with my longest runs of 7-8 miles) and frankly I'm frustrated with them. I feel that I can never get a bounce in my step and my runs feel very flat like I'm trudging through mud. While I was at the mall today, I happened to see a pair a Mizuno's in my size on clearance so I quickly slipped them on. Wow, what a difference! I guess I'm going to just learn to replace my shoes often and hopefully loose more weight to make my shoes last longer. I will still wear these shoes for slooowww walking (BTW they hurt even for walking fast). On a positive note: the shoes are supportive for high arches and I feel that it keeps my foot from pronating and unfortunately, they seem like they will last forever.
I'm bummed - because they are really jazzy looking and fun.
Note: I was running "injury free" on old shoes for 6 weeks before I finally got new shoes. Calf pain started on day 1 of new shoes on a 2.5 mile run and it has never let up.
I hope taking the time to write this review will help assist someone in their quest for the perfect shoes...well at least until they change them on you with the next design.
UPDATE: I went back to Mizuno's and despite the fact you shouldn't run 10 miles on day 1 in a new pair of shoes, I felt I had no choice. Within 2 miles, the calf pain that had been bugging me since the 1st day I put on these shoes went away. I continued to run in my new shoes through a half marathon and I never had pain again. After inspection, I think it is the straight last on these shoes vs. Mizuno curved last which is truly making the difference. Running in shoes with a curved last helps me feel my toes grip and push off. I hope this helps!
If you're coming from something like the Nimbus: these are STIFF. I've traditionally not liked a stiff sneaker, but since I got these for $30 (screaming good deal) I was like "what the heck, I'll keep them and see." For running on trail these get a thumbs down. For concrete/sidewalk a huge thumbs up. They really "come alive" once you're running. If you're walking they feel like planks. At least to me.
I'm a little skeptical of the claims of arch support. I felt like I wanted some more than what was actually there. But I've yet to actually be in pain, so maybe it's just different from what I've historically selected.
I tend to get shin splints/shin pain while running and I noticed that with these the shin pain was gone, despite my feeling like I wanted more support to the outside of my feet.
One thing I do not like- AT ALL- is the way the heel "nubs" curve inwards towards your heel and act sort of like prongs. I just don't like it. I'm very prone to heel blisters so anything rubbing on my heels is in the "don't like that" group.
The toebox feels very adequate. Most toeboxes feel a little narrow/tight to me, but this one feels a smidge wider.
To my surprise, I had severe arch pain within an hour of wearing these!!! I tried to tightened the shoes but that didn't help. It was so bad I couldn't walk for a day. I returned them as being defective, since they are described as a supportive shoe, hopefully Amazon will understand.
I still gave 3 stars because if you have a neutral stride these would probably be a really great shoe!
