Very good shoe

5

I have been wearing this shoe for 16 years. It's the best I have ever found. I live in fear of the day it won't be available any more. My feet need as much cushioning as they can get, and a wide toe box. I have found this shoe provides more cushioning than any other shoe I've tried. It also has a wide enough toe box to keep my toes from getting squeezed together. I happen to wear size 11 1/2 D. It's a very comfortable shoe for me, and as has been noted in several other reviews, I can take them out of the box and immediately go for run without really having to break them in. Normally I get 400-500 miles out of a pair. I've noticed when the shoes wear out, I wear out the heel; never the front half of the sole.

Shadow 6000 still impressive.

I've worn this shoe for 15 years and can slip on right out of the box and run 6 miles without blinking. Best shoe for me, medium build, 20 miles/week - this shoe does not disappoint! yes I realize it's not about style, this one just wants to get up and go! Please keep this proven winner in stock, looking for anothrer 15 years of support from RRS, you guys rock!

Classic for a reason!

I have worn Saucony shoes for over 30 years and the Jazz and Shadow models have been personal favorites. Very sturdy and comfortable. They are basic training shoes, perfectly suited to normal runners for daily use on all surfaces. Can be slick when it is wet out. Hope they never quite producing them.

Classic shoe with viability!

This is a great running shoe, for outside pavement surfaces. It's great for flat running. I tried playing racquetball in it, but I rolled my ankle, but that was my mistake to use it outside of the running use.

Ive worn these shoes for over 15 years. To me they are the Holy Grail of running shoes. Nothing can be better. I hope they will be made forever. If they are not I have a closet with about 20 new pairs in reserve.

The Shadow 6000 has been my only running shoe since it came out. I am an ultrarunner and have not had any injuries, there is no break in time (I took them out of the box and ran a 100 miler, no problem). These shoes are shoe perfection.

Best Fit Right Out of the Box

These shoes are ready to go right out of the box. No break-in required. Nice, conservative styling. Hope they never discontinue.

5

I reluctantly went to this shoe after Nike quit making the Anodyne way back when. Note to Nike: why quit making the #1 selling shoe? The reason I say reluctantly went to this is that they are absolutely ugly. However, they fit very well - narrow heel and wide toe box. They last about 3 times longer than most shoes - they really do! I've gone through many pair without a shoe problem. I'm 6'1" 185 lbs. The only other shoe comparable for me is the Brooks Adrenaline. I've never bought another pair of Nikes as the Shadow 6000 won me over.

I pronate and wear custom orthotics with 1/4" lift in one heel (A therapist told me, due to scoliosis, etc., to NEVER attempt a marathon. I told him I'd done 28). : ) Jeff Galloway told me he liked it on me. The 6000 heel gives me helpful stability when rolling heel to toe. I greatly appreciate the wide toe box. For me, the perfect shoe. Price is nice too. After 300 miles, it becomes my in-the-house shoe. When displaced from that, it becomes my outdoor walking shoe. Only after that do I give them away.

A solid shoe if you have a) wide feet and b) an absolutely straight foot. (5'7"/148lbs) They worked fine for me when I ran 15-20 mi/wk but now I'm at 30/wk, faster training runs, and longer long runs (13m)-- my outer foot is getting sore but I'm not sure if it's the shoe. My little toe gets a blister on runs over 10 miles, but it's fixable (prerun) with a bandaid. There's no such thing as a perfect shoe for everyone, but I've had 3 pair of these and I like them.

5

I reluctantly tried this shoe in 1991 after failing to find a shoe that would work for me. I am absolutely amazed at how well this shoe has worked for me and I have never switched and thankfully have never had to since it is still being produced. This shoe is a little heavier, but I am able to get 400 to 500 miles out of one pair and I have worn out 60 + pairs in the last 15 years. I won't switch until Saucony stops producing it.

Still The Best

5

I've been running in Saucony shoes since the early 80's, starting with the Hornet and the Sting. Got my first pair of Shadow 6000's in 1992. Have tried other models since, including several Progrids, but keep coming back to the 6000. It's a classic training/marathon shoe that hasn't been "improved" out of existence. No bells or whistles, just solid performance. Out of my 53 marathons, over 40 were run in Sauconys, the last 20 in the Shadow 6000.

I am greatful that this shoe is still being carried by RRS. It has a wide toe box and good cushioning. I have tried other shoes, but will keep using the Shadow 6000 as long as it is carried. This was a new shoe model when I started using it, over 10 years ago or more. I've used it for training up to 60 miles per week, on snow and ice, trails, and pavement. This shoe does everything I need it to do.

5

My first Sauconys. Great shoe. This was actually my second choice since RRS didn't have the NBs I wanted in my size. The heal and toe cushioning are perfect. The wide toe box keeps my little toe from getting sore and the stability helps counter my pronation. These shoes have a very natural feel, I have to concentrate on my feet to even feel them.

I have been running in these shoes since the early 90's. I've tried the most expensive and the most "technically advanced" models the other major brands have offered. After each one, I always returned to the Shadow 6000. It's my "old dependable" and my "old faithful". It keeps on running and keeps on giving. I have complete faith in these shoes

Ever try to imagine running on clouds that are strapped to your feet? These sneakers are the most comfortable sneaker I've ever worn for running. They actually had a little too much cushioning for me, but I use them all the time and I praise the Lord for Saucony's! In my opinion, one of the best shoes ever constructed.

I started wearing the Saucony Shadow 6000 shoe when it first came out 17 years ago. I have never worn another kind of shoe ever since. I have probably purchased 50+ pairs of Shadow 6000's since then. My running life will go completely down the drain if Saucony stops making these shoes.

Good running shoe for warm climates

This is a great shoe for warm climate running or walking. However, due to is breathable top, your feet get wet easily if it rains or you walk through damp grass. It is inner cushion wears out long before the sole - so replace at least every 3 months.
