    Saucony Shoes

    Does anyone have experience wearing these low profile original Saucony Bullets? I would use them for walking and lite hiking. I normally wear Pumas, but wanted to try something new. All of the Merrels are unattractive looking, IMO.

    I have a pair of Saucony shoes, though not the exact ones you link to. They're a very good brand, though I do not use mine for hiking. For light hiking, I really prefer my Keen Voyageur shoes. That said, I'm pretty sure Saucony would be better quality than Puma, so you might do quite well with those.

    Saucony also has a new line of revolutionary compression apparel that can actually boost athletic performance and enhance recovery. It takes the benefits of compression with a specially formulated responsive fiber.

    Is this the future of spam? Superbots that read your posts to make sales pitches?

    Sorry, I don't, but I do walk in other Saucony shoes and have for years. I switched to Asics once, but they didn't last as long in terms of the uppers. They almost fell apart on me. My Sauc's uppers last as long as the tread does. I am interested in what you think of them if you get them. I'm not ready for 5 fingers or whatever, but could be persuaded to try a lower heel and less construction in a walking shoe.

    They look like toe squishers

    You forgot to provide a spambot link to purchase the spam.

    I have some Saucony Originals. They are the most padded shoe I have probably ever worn. Like wearing boxing gloves on your feet. That said, they are very comfortable if you tend to get foot pain when walking/standing for a long time. But if you are used to a thinner shoe where you can feel the ground, you are gonna be in for a shock.

    Personally, they never became a part of my regular shoe rotation because they were just so... fluffy.
