    • Classic shoe
      Reviewer: Robert

      8/12/2013

      The Fastwitch has been my shoe of choice for years now. The minimalist shoes are too little for me but the Fastwitch is a step up from the bare essentials. It is good all purpose racing and training flat that does not mask all signals from the foot and knee.

      Been running in Sauconys for years. First time with the Fastwitches. Have run over 150 miles with them so far and they're holding up alright. TIghter in the toebox than I'm use to which causes a slight adjustment. Will be going back to the Guide or perhaps Kinvara with more room. Good fit in heel with all.

      This is my third pair of Fastwitch. This is an excellent light weight training shoe

    • Great companion to my Kinvara's
      Reviewer: asaptrainer

      4/3/2012

      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

      3/24/2012

      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

      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.

    • On my second pair
      Reviewer: Brad

      Preface: I am 5'10" 210lbs. I originally ran in the Kinvaras becasue they felt like pillows. The kinvara's are light and breezy on your feet. I switched to the 5's because they had a little more support and were still lightweight. They work very well. Try to the find the bright green because they are SOOOO AWESOME! This is my 2nd pair of 5's. For me they last about 400 miles which isn't bad. I trained and ran a 1/2 among other races in them and they felt pretty good. Them being light helps a lot for the long runs. I am training for an olympic triathlon now and they slip on pretty fast with the lasces tied. I would recommend these for a midfoot or forefoot striker defenatly. Note: they do not get good traction when the streets are wet out or if you are running on trails.

    • Not as good as the 4s
      Reviewer: milesbill

      2/23/2012

      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!
