Hi All

Just to let you know that I recently purchased the above model of running shoe (I have severe overpronation on my right side and am slightly overweight) and they are brilliant!!

They are my second official pair of running shoes (my first were Saucony Grid Stabil purchased 6 months ago)and I am so pleased that I followed my first mind and stuck with the Saucony brand.

I'll let you know how they wear in once I've done a few runs in them but I have no doubt that they will continue to be brilliant!

Hi jem,
glad you like your new shoes. I too love the Saucony brand. I've run in several of their models and even though I also run in other brands I always have a pair of Saucony on the go.

My favourites are the Saucony Swerve, which are a lightweight trainer. I wore them to do a marathon and they were the best. I think they've been replaced by a newer shoe now, but I made sure I bought some recently in a sale so that I've got another pair sat in the box waiting their turn!

Anyone from Saucony out there I wouldn't mind test running some trainers for you!

I was getting loads of injurys whilst wearing Asics. Then I saw the light. Saucony Trigon for me, and touch wood I,ve been injury free for a while now.

just so i get my name in there for the shoe testers too ;)
i've got a pair of hurricanes as well...i'm not very heavy and only overpronate mildly , but still love the hurricane..,..also got a pair of omnis (nice too!)
i recently got a pair of mizuno mavericks, but i think i'll stick to the hurricanes in future....

took my hurricane's for their second long run today and again, am convinced that i did the right thing in sticking to saucony! i'm hooked - no more flirtations with nike's or asics!

Where can I get these trainers from, as I haven't heard of the make before?

hi claire

i got my saucony grid hurricane's from the SweatShop - they have quite a few branches dotted around the country - I got mine from their Covent Garden shop.

you can also order from them online at:

their website also gives you a list of their various locations

Thanks Jem, I've got the discount vouchers from the 10k Jubilee run, so I'll have a look.

I wholeheartedly agree! As a more mature runner shall we say, I used to run in Nike Pegasus in the early eighties, before they lost their way. I have one foot which is size 9 normal width, and the other a size 7 extra wide!
I have been running in Saucony shoes for quite a few years now and am really impressed. I have dabbled with other makes over the years, but Saucony are a " Proper " runners shoe, and the Hurricane is about the best shoe around, I can just put them on and forget about them.

As a fellow over pronator I tried the hurricane's briefly but found blistering on my inner heals a major problem.

I'm back with Asics Kayanos X and don't think they can be beaten - although the Kayano model IX's are unwearable!

My advice is ... once you find a make and model that suits you try to buy a few pairs. When they alter the design, even slightly, you can find yourself with a completely different shoe!

I've got some hurricane 5's and i love them. I like the roomy toe box. They also got rid of the pains i was having in my shins.
