Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

This shoe is heavy and they seem to fight the runner right out of the box during the entire walk or run. When you take them off you feel the extra weight being released from your legs. The only reason I got them is because something has happened to the Saucony material and shoe make-up. WOW! After buying this brand since the 80's. The newer designs wear down so quickly and the material can't take normal wear and tear. I got so frustrated with the new choices that I traveled to a retail store for assistance. It was suggested I try this shoe since it was a trail shoe the material should be stronger. Well it is- but it is heavy and clunky. Overall try it on and walk around before purchase.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

After giving this newer model of the Stabil a lower rating because I felt it was much narrower, I ran out of other shoe options for motion control and tried the Wide width of this shoe. It fit perfect. It is now my favorite show again. If anyone else finds this shoe to narrow in the B width, I would suggest trying the wide width.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I used several of the previous Grid Stabils and really loved them for my flat feet. They were always comfy from the first time I put them on my feet. That is not true of this model. The B width was much narrower than in previous models and I keep getting blisters on the tops of my toes and even had a toenail turn black-n-blue and fall off from wearing them for long runs. I will try some of the other brands instead.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I can usually run in a pair of new shoes without really needing to break them in... yet I've run over 30 miles in these shoes and they have yet to feel broken in. I bought a size up and cannot feel comfortable in them. I love Saucony's but these are the first pair I've bought that hurt my flat feet. It's too bad that I can't return them or else I would. I need to try a different shoe now. Very disappointing.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

i usually can step right into a saucony and run without much break in time. these slip in the heel badly and although are good for motion control and support, i felt significant strain in my knees and shins. i've not had that trouble with other saucony shoes for overpronators. will probably try an asic shoe

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

After 15 years of running in Saucony sneakers, this shoe made me try another brand. My heel slips around and feels as though I am striking down on cement. The arch is too high and the shoe never feels broken in. I sent back the last pair. The good news is that the Brooks Addiction 7 is a GREAT sneaker!

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I also have used previous models of the Grid Stabil and loved them right out of the box, but this model feels like too much of an arch for my very flat feet...and when my feet hurt, I'm a tad cranky! I'll be returning these and trying to find something else.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I have used the prior models and loved them. This shoe, in a wide feels tighter than most Saucony B width. There is much less room in the toe box than prior models and it overall feels tight in the width. Not as comfortable as previous models. Loved the plum color.

By crl8686

from Undisclosed

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I thought the Stabil MC5 was overall a better fitting shoe, mostly because it was a little wider through the toebox and across the instep. The Stabil 6 is distinctly narrower through the forefoot. I had to relace the shoes to open up some extra room across the instep. That did seem to work. I've had no problems with blisters, but that may be because I replaced the standard insoles with Sorbothane (as I always do for running shoes). But in perspective, they do their job on pronation control and they do fit well. P. S. I did check out the competition (Brooks Addiction) and found them a bit too wide in the heel.

Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Stabil 6 Running Shoe:

I've been wearing Grid Stabils since 2000. They were my Holy Grail of shoes. Not anymore. I strongly dislike the redesign of the MC 6. The toebox is shallower in height, it feels narrower across the forefoot...they've tinkered too much with a good thing in my opinion.

Great motion control shoe without being clunky. Doesn't slip off my heels and has a nice wide toe box. Best of all my knees don't hurt!

I have been running in the Stabils for 5 years. I have high arches that fall when I run (not an option when using RRSs little selection guide). I tried a LOT of MC shoes and this and a discontinued expensive Nike were the only ones to ease the shin pain. I suspect that it was because I have a small foot size 7 and the materials in other mc shoes didn't allow the small shoes to flex enough at the front ball of the foot. The only downside was that they broke down quickly and my shins would begin aching. The first time this happened I replaced the shoe with a new one and it worked! I think that whatever changes were made to this addition (stabil 6) have helped it last a lot longer because this pair has lasted noticably longer. I have not had any problems with blisters with this version or past versions and yet they still do the trick for my shins.

This is the first non-asics brand shoe I've ever worn and I'm somewhat impressed. I'm a high mileage, small frame cross country runner with horrible shin problems. After a month of blisters the shoe helped my shin pain, but not enough to sustain the relief. I don't think I'll buy this shoe again.

I ran in the Grid Stabil MC for years until the MC 5 which was an awful fit. The new Grid Stabil 6 is a great fit with a narrow heel that doesn't slip and a wide toe box. I have not experienced any discomfort or blisters with this shoe and I've been running in it since it came out last fall. Great motion control shoe!

I had worn the Grid Stabil 5 the last several years and had been very happy with them. I am 5'7", 115 lbs and am an high level high school CC and track athlete. I am very disappounted with the Grid Stabil 6. For me the fit and feel of these shoes was not right. The 5's always felt just right and these do not. Also, when I would run I felt like my foot was slapping down and I could not control it. These shoes were unwearable for me.

i am thoroughly disappointed with saucony's decision to change the current stabil model. I have been running in this shoe for over 5 years and i have had nothing but painful runs since purchasing this shoe. Did they not realize that those runners who purchases the grid stabil were flat-footed runners looking for motion control, not another shoe to look and feel like the rest? Definitely do not buy this shoe if you were a dedicated purchaser of the previous model
