Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

I really wanted to give this shoe 5 stars. I have been looking for something that has a bit more than the Kinvara, but still felt light and fast. I loved the ISO system on the Zealot and the Triumph and was looking forward to the ISO in a lighter less built up shoe.

The full foot ever-run sole feels awesome! Great spring and cushion without slowing you down. Felt great on a 17 miler last week.

The only problem, at least for me, is the fit. Obviously this is a personal thing and for others the fit will be perfect. But at least for me, the fit is different than other Saucony shoes. Most Saucony's fit me perfectly at 11.5. In the Freedom the 11.5 was too narrow so I got the 12 which works but does not fit as well as other Saucony's in 11.5. They seem a bit narrower than other Saucony's I have worn.

I still think it is a great show and probably still the best option for me for a high milage trainer for now, but just know that if you are used to some other Saucony shoes, the fit might be different.

Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

I have about 200 miles in this shoe so far and this is probably the best Saucony shoe I've owned and I've been running in them for 20 years, zealots, kinvaras, cortanas, et al. I realize this shoe isn't going to be for everyone. It is light and as a result the upper construction is not going to be as strong/stable. The sole is probably the most durable I've run in with minimal degradation so far. The cushioning has been perfect for me and runs from 4 to 11 miles have been great with minimal to no leg soreness. I'm 6'1" 185. If you're looking for a great, lightweight training shoe for pavement or light trail runs, this shoe could be perfect for you.

    Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

    I tried this shoe after running in Nike's for years. In fact, I alternated between this shoe and my Nike's. While the Saucony feels good with their Everun technology and I love the secure feeling of their lacing, the mesh portion above the upper toe developed a hole after a couple of months. The quality of their uppers simply was lacking.

    Upper Stability is lacking!

    By Blake

    Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

    I was very excited to receive these shoes. The first couple of days were great in the shoe as I just wore them walking around. I soon realized that the upper in this shoe did not have enough stability for me. My shin splints were under control and the first workout I did in these cause a massive flare up and almost sidelined me for an important event. I also did not feel the response that I thought that I would and I was slipping around on the inside of the shoe due to the lack of stability. I returned these shoes a few days after receiving them.

      Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

      I have been a high mileage, serious runner for most of the past 40 years and this is the best training shoe I have worn. Plantar fasciitis slowed, and at times stopped me, over the past two years. Almost from the first workout in these shoes I was running without pain, possibly due to a combination of no motion control, excellent padding, and just 4 mm of drop. It has changed the way my foot contacts the ground. I am a heel striker in most shoes, but my forefoot contacts the ground first in these shoes. Running at a brisk pace is more enjoyable in these shoes. The sole is far more wear resistant than any shoe I have worm previously, and the TPU foam seems to be more resilient too, which makes the high cost of the shoes a sound purchase since they will likely last twice as many miles. My only criticism is that I like to run without socks, but there are three irritating spots in the shoes that require me to tape my foot before each run.

        I've been running in this shoe for the last month, and honestly, it just gets better with time. The Everun midsole makes the ride smooth, yet snappy and responsive. The ISO Fit and the upper are comfortable and can conform to my feet without having to tie the laces down tight. The toe-box is spacious. I went hp a half size from my nike air zoom elite's and it was a great fit. When I paired the shoes with my custom inserts the RRS in lone tree, it created the most enjoyable yet enduring run that I can remember.

        Best Shoe I've ever Worn

        from undisclosed

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

        Probably the best shoe I have ever run in. Midsole is just right. Upper is perfect. I've run in many pairs of Kinvaras, and the Freedom Iso is like a much nicer Kinvara in my opinion. It is softer but also more responsive somehow. Highly Recommend for you neutral runners. FYI I'm a 5'5", 118 lb male, so this is plenty of shoe for me. Might not be the case for others. Also, it does run small. I'm an 8 in Kinvaras and 8.5 fits me perfect.

          I was looking for a light weight shoe for an upcoming marathon. I have worn the same Asics road show for more than 12 years. I tried the shoe on in the store and knew it was perfect. Out of the box I ran 5 miles and the shoe was comfortable and performed well. My body is sensitive to changing shoes (I've tried to break away from my Asics many times) and I always go back. Not this time. These are perhaps the most comfortable shoes I've worn. At a little over 9 ounces they're perfect for distance and speed. I do not know how they will wear, but I will stick with this shoe.

            They are light and very comfortable. Because I have a history of some Achilles' tendon problems I usually have to have a much heavier highly cushioned shoe to run pain free, but these give me all the cushion I need. I highly recommend them. They run small, so order a full size larger than your non-running shoe.

              Comments about Mens Saucony Freedom ISO Running Shoe:

              So far, I have only run one six mile easy run in these, but I can already tell that this is a great shoe for me. I love the all-TPU midsole (Saucony calls it EVERUN). My other shoes also have an all-TPU midsole (Adidas calls it BOOST). Going forward I plan on using both the Saucony Freedom ISO and Adidas Ultra Boost ST shoes for my training runs and races. The Freedom ISO's definitely don't feel like they have as much cushion material underneath (which they don't from a thickness perspective), but they still feel very well cushioned. I like that you can feel the road a little more, plus they feel lighter, so these will likely be my go-to shoes for speed and tempo workouts as well as 5k & 10k races. The Ultra Boost ST's will be used for my easy and longer runs. I'm not quite sure which ones I will use for a half marathon race as I think either one may be fine.

              For sizing, I have always had success by going with the RRS recommendations based on my street shoe size (a consistent 10 for me). For the Saucony Freedom ISOs, however, I think they missed the mark. They state that they should be 1/2 size above street shoe size, but when I ordered 1/2 size up (10.5), they were definitely too small. I then ordered size 11 (a full size above my dress shoe size), and these fit perfectly.

              So, I was looking for comfort and I got what I was looking for. I took it for an 11mi run yesterday and I liked the feel. I have been running on Newton Distance in the past, but decided to get a shoe that is not too harsh on the soleus/calf muscle. This shoe fills that void. If I were to change something on this shoe, I would say, make it lighter.

                Very comfortable, cushioned shoe. I ran ten miles today in the shoe and my feet feel wonderful. No leg fatigue, the fit is amazing. Highly recommend you give it a try.
