AW review of the Saucony Type A running shoes

The lightest shoe on test in our recent ‘spring in your step’ product feature at just 147g, the Saucony Type A is built purely for speed.

The low-profile midsole has a 4mm drop, along with a firmer, more responsive feel making it best suited to the most efficient mid to forefoot strikers.

A lightweight breathable mesh upper uses a bonded-on ‘flex film’ to add supportive sections without creating additional weight.

For the pure speed athlete it’s an excellent choice.

We loved: The fit is that of a pure racer in every respect: close, snug and sock-like.
