Saucony's best selling running shoe in a walking/fitness version. All the technical features of the running shoe but with a full grain leather upper. Ideal for those needing support and cushioning but in an every day, or more sturdy shoe.
- "Excellent for long paved surface walks" Review by
I had researched various types of sports shoes that would enable me to keep fit while unable to jog because of a plantar fasciitis condition. These shoes have definitely helped me recover from the condition, and I highly recommend them.
The cushioning system is similar to that used in Saucony running shoes, and is far superior to any other walking shoe that I have tried.
The leather upper makes it more rigid than an average running shoe, as one would expect, but this also makes it water resistant. I proofed mine with a spray and have yet to get wet feet despite recent conditions (Spring 2014).
I have also used the shoes on light compacted trails, and they performed very well. I would not recommend them for hill walking because they are not designed for this purpose.
The grip is excellent both on paved and light trail surfaces.
They are smart enough for use at work unless you are expected to wear formal shoes.
There is a reflective safety section at the heel end, but this is reasonably subtle.
The service from achilles heel was also excellent, and they are able to provide helpful advice if you ask. The fact that they run the best shoe store in Glasgow, with knowledgable staff, sets them apart from most online sports shoe traders.
