      Trained and ran my first marathon in these. Shoes with lift and lots of padding cause me injury. No issues with these shoes. Best thing I have found next to barefeet. Barefeet hurts on the road though so if I am road running I wear these. Light, the right amount of cushion, durable and great colors.

        These shoes feel great. Using them for shorter 6 to 10 mile runs and have really enjoyed them. They have great feel on pavement. I look forward to the next edition in this line. Only downfall is the seams on the bottom outside of the shoes have begun to rip, about 150 miles in, but it hasnt affecting the run yet. Enjoy.

            Light, fast, flexible and comfortable. I bought for speed and tempo workouts, but have happily raced Half IMs and a half-marathon. They hold up well too, except upper wears thin and eventually begins to separate from sole on both sides of arch where the upper joins the sole. Under the Born-to-Run influence, I now do long runs in them as well and the improved foot strength solved my plantar fascitis.

              Comments about Mens Saucony Grid Fastwitch 6 Running Shoe:

              I'm a pretty serious runner, doing 50-60 miles a week for much of the year. I definitely liked Fastwitch 5 which was less colorful. If you can get past the weird color scheme you will like this shoe. It's noticeably lighter than Fastwitch 5 and is best for tempo runs and intervals, whether on or off the track. This can also be a very good racing shoe for those who can't tolerate ultra-light or minimalist shoes for longer races like 10 miles and up. I would not use it constantly for long endurance runs as it won't provide the support that a stability shoe does for that kind of running. But for everything else it's an excellent shoe.

                Nice shoe with surprisingly good cushion for a lightweight. Runs a bit small and slightly narrow, but 1 full size up fit my medium width foot well. The open weave upper is more flexible and forgiving than the fine nylon outer layer on my Kinvara 2s. The Kinvaras ripped after only about 100 miles right at the flex point behind the toe. Still usable, but a nuisance. I don't expect this problem with the open weave on the Fastwitches. The Fastwitch also feels less cramped and restricted. I am a mild pronator when standing/walking but running I become more neutral. My feet still feel good in these after 7-8 mile runs.
                They were a bit slippery on smooth pavement in the rain, but wasn't a big issue. Tread is not aggressive and suited better to road than trail. I will be using this for non-trail training and racing. Good shoe so far, at about 50 miles only, but expect good things.

                    Bought these for both my sons (16 and 14) who run high school track. Both run cross country and specialize in the 800m and 1600m races during indoor and outdoor seasons. They both indicated the sneaker is very light and is ideal on days when they do speed work on the track or fast cadence runs on the road. They also love the neon orange color.

                    I'm a loyal customer to Saucony, the Kinvara 3 is a blast to run in, when I went to go get a second pair of trainers, my eye caught the Fastwich 6, with the very bright vizi pro color way by Saucony. When I went running in them for practice I was on the fence with these, they have the "barefoot like" feel to them but without sacrificing foot padding, I don't feel the explosiveness like I do in the Kinvara 3's but still a great shoe. All in all I have gotten several compliments about them, and I set a new personal best in them, just don't use them racing in a wet condition They Will Slip.

                    I took a bit of a gamble on this shoe, but with Raodrunners 90 day shoe guarantee, I had nothing to lose - fitting unseen and so far it has paid off. I used the Fastwitch 4 as my racing flat (I use another shoe for training) and this one seems to be better than the Fastwitch 4, little more foot padding. I skipped the Fastwitch 5.
                    It is extremely light and my foot turnover seems to be quicker. I have worn it several times sockless with only ankle support and so far so good
                    I have yet to test it for a race but that is forthcoming.
                    The only con will probably be wear. Because the shoe is light, I am sure it will wear quickly as the Fastwitch 4 wore quickly. I plan to only use for track/speed workouts and races. I will use a more durable/lasting shoe for training.
                    Overall great shoe and the orange color -WOW, its bright!
                    On a funny note, the back bottom left heel of the shoe has:
                    I AM WINNING
                    Back botton right heel has:
