Great companion to my Kinvara's
Reviewer: asaptrainer | Finley, ND
I saw some similar features to my Kinvara's in the FasTwitch's, and decided to go with a pair. Wise choice on my end, as they fit my foot great and feel less sloppy than my Kinvara's sometimes do. I love how lightweight it feels, much like my Kinvara's. Haven't had serious volume of running in them but as far as fit & feel go, I would recommend them to a serious 5K'er for speed workouts & racing.
Loved Every Fastwitch Before This One
Reviewer: KShah | Chicago
Why did you have to and change the model of a perfectly built shoe!? Since the birth of the Fastwitch I have run in them and have bought over 30 pairs. Now that is it changed and with no other shoe you have that feels the same, I was forced to purchase another brand. That was a sad moment for me after being a loyal Saucony fan for 20 years. You have fallen short on this Fastwitch 5 - sad, but true.
Fast, lightweight training
Reviewer: Anonymous | Maryland
I train with heavier shoes, and I have other light racing shoes but I have to admit these are pretty good shoes. Set a couple of PRs.
Not as good as the 4s
Reviewer: milesbill | Boston, MA
In two two years I set PR's in every distance from 10K through marathon (2:54). Then my fastwitch 4's were toast so I got the 5's. This is a completely different shoe other than the basic weight. It still provides the same stability but the tread and cushion and ride are all totally different. First, they are not as soft on the legs at the 4s leaving me with very sore feet at the end of even a half marathon. The cushion is pretty hard - for me, only good enough for 10k or less whereas I could race the 4s right through the marathon distance with no problem. They ride like a much lighter shoe and they leave you feeling that way - ouch!
