Saucony Jazz Women's and Men's
A standard worth retaining
Have a look and dig the great prices for shoes that runners have been enjoy for over ten years.
If it ain't broken, don't fix it, Saucony claims, is there motto for keeping this "perfect" running shoe on the market. Customer demand had a lot to do with forcing their idealist position. Go Jazz!
The great men's original is still available, too, and at a price that will knock your socks off. The minimalist movement has proven, among other things, that all the new fancy technoloiges had more to do with sellers than buyers. The industry-wide idea was to keep you buying into the next improvement. Runners like you and me know better and Saucony responded.
I love vegan whenever I can find it. It's fashionable now, of course, but don't get the wrong idea. This variation on the Jazz line has stayed around by popular demand for over a decade. Great shoe, great price, great commitment to the vegan lifestyle.
My wife and I have both enjoyed running often together, and this became her favorite running shoe more than ten years ago. She liked the comfort and style so much, she often wore them as her everyday casual shoes.
Sadly, this is all that remains of the Shadow line, not even a running shoe anymore, but something called a "fashion sneaker," which probably recognizes the fact that they were great looking running shoes we were comfortable wearing when we were out walking around.

Saucony Women Running Shoes
Great shoes, great discounts right now.
Here are the best deals you can get today in quality running shoes that women recommend.
The TR5 is a heartier shoe made to withstand the demands of the trail, but the prices don't show it. I love trail running, getting out into nature and all the sensory thrills that race through you as you roll by. When you can do it more cheaply, it's a bonus.
A genuine road running shoe and great looking too. Based on the Grid cushioning system that made the Shadow 6000 obsolete for men, it has all the traditional Saucony durability. Like the best running shoes, you won't mind enjoying its comfort for all sorts occasions when you're not running.
Ignition is Saucony's answer for a women's running shoe with some extra cushioning. If you like a softer impact when you run on hard surfaces, the Ignition will help reduce the pounding that resonates up through your body as you race along. Some runners prefer extra cushioning, not so much for the immediate comfort, but for the longer term hedge against body wear and tear.
Proof again that great running shoes need not be expensive. The interesting thing here is that some runners report that the cushioning with the Grid helps prevent injuries, especially shin splints, that more expensive shoes could not. Again, the price is surprisingly low. You can just about buy two of these for the price of a "better" shoe that does less for you.
The tweak that makes the Ride a powerful option among more conditioned running shoes is newer technologies that, not only absorb impacts well, but also dissipate what you do get for less stress on the most often punished parts of your feet.
And The Best New Discount Saucony Running Shoes For Men
What's interesting about the Grid Crossfire is that it's almost a mix between cushioned and minimalist shoes. It's limited cushioning edges toward a barefoot feel, without actually getting there, while it provides better than average traction. Click here for more info.
The bullet's a retro throwback to the mid '80s when Saucony made a track shoe by the same name. Calling them the now discarded "sneakers" is a great tribute to a show that feels so light it feels like 1980 with a price to match.
From nostalgia, we jump to today with the Grid Outduel. As one of Saucony's newest shoes (at old shoe prices), it gets all the modern features for cushioning without getting too heavy.
When I was a beginning runner, I remember an article with a pure running shoe fetish telling us we should never use the same shoe for running as we did for walking around. Fortunately, the nonsense is ignored with shoes that are good enough to wear anywhere that doesn't require a suit.
This is just a damned good-looking running shoe, designed wtih what Saucony calls "Hot Melt synthetic suede" aligning with the upper mesh and a cozy feel inside that is more like a slipper than a running shoe. Probably not for really serious runners, but how many of those are there? And you get to where them and look good everywhere else.
The Kinvara, thoough far from a barefoot shoe, is Saucony's entry in the minimalist running shoe market. It's exceptionally lightweight and to protect you from the road, it goes to a Grid light version. You won't feel like you have nothing on your feet, like the advertising claims, but what you will feel is light and enough security to get you minimal without much risk.
