Saucony Progrid Omni 6
Still stable, but the ProGrid offers a softer rearfoot feel.

Our Review

As with the ProGrid Triumph – reviewed in Dec 06 – the Omni comes with the new ProGrid cushioning system, which is designed to improve the comfort and performance of the shoe by dispersing heel impact more effectively than the old GRID system. But unlike the Triumph, the Omni only ...  Continue reading

Purchased in January to help me through my FLM 2009 training and have been great to date, although my toes are beginning to ache and one nail has gone black, but I put this down to the mileage being covered. Continue reading...

Having had many of the preceding Saucony Omnis, it's probably about time to replace my Omni 5s - they're about 9 months old now and I've just been suffering from some achilles problems :-(

How do the new ones come up fit wise? Is a size 9 in the Omni 5 the same in the Omni 6?

Finances mean (best price) mail order is the most likely route, as I also need a new pair of fell shoes and will be patronising my local running shop for them!

I had 9.5 in the 5 (and 4, and 3) and have 9.5 in the 6.

There is more room in the forefoot in the 6 though.

Sounds good to me. With duck-like feet, I can never have too much room in the forefoot.

"There is more room in the forefoot in the 6 though"...

So much so that I have gone back to Omni 5s, which I can pick up for bargain prices now :-)

Shame, cos the Omni 6 is a comfy and good-looking shoe :-(

Be careful with this - I had the same when I moved from Asics Kayanos (12-13) - although the size felt OK (both 9.5s)during long runs they got more and more uncomfortable as i felt my foot was moving around too much in front of the shoe - the next week I tore a calf muscle....

 Thats why I moved to the Omni 5's - hope the same thing isn't going to happen again with the 6's

The 5 is nicer Debs - lovely gold bling on the side
