Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I put a high arch insole into the shoe.
Great out of the box, and for short runs on rubber track; I initially liked the torsion bar, which prevented overpronation, and the neutral feel, but one day, after 1.5 miles, suddenly got a severe calf pain, like a strain/tear of the calf ??? was it the torsion bar or me being a little out of shape?

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

As an avid runner and Cross Country/Track coach I decided to train for my first marathon. As my mileage increased...so did my injuries (shin splints/knee pain). I finally went to a local specialty store. I tried a variety of shoes to address the problem. I tried the Mizuno Waverider 12 (shin splints no knee pain), Nike Triax (shin splints, no knee pain), Brooks Glycerin7 (HORRIBLE knee pain and shin splints).
I finally tried the Paramounts and my love of running has returned. I ran a 6 mile out of the box and not a single pain to be noticed. The front of the shoe seems a bit open and I experienced a "slight" rub on the left big toe but other than that the shoe is incredible.
I've since put a few more miles on the shoe and I have had no shin splints or knee pain. I actually PR'd my 5k time by 77 seconds yesterday with these puppies.
The breathability of this shoe is amazing. My feet feel cool. Initiallly I thought the shoe felt hard with a lack of cushioning but that subsided afte

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I've been running for a since high school (I'm 29 now) and this is one of the best shoes I've ever ran in. I've ran in neutral shoes forever, usually Saucony lately Triumphs. My Triumph 4's were great but the 5's were giving me fits. Visited the ortho, he suggested a stability shoe and here we are! Just enough cushioning, not too soft, the memory foam heel is awesome and my runners knee is going away. I highly recommend.

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I am an avid runner who has had a lot of knee problems due to my IT band. I run 30-40 miles a week. I really love this shoe for many reasons (and am working on my second pair, soon to be third). It keeps my feet nice and cool as other reviews mentioned. It also has enough room to fit my orthodics without having them hang over the inside like happens with many other shoes. I would highly recommend this shoe.

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I am a 197lb 6t tall minimal miler (12-15 per week). Positives about the shoe: The shoe does a great job of keeping my feet comfortable temperature wise. My socks are sweaty around my ankles, but my feet are not. That is impressive! Negatives: I don't remember the last time my feet and legs hurt so much from a pair of Sauconys. They hurt the support is just not there for me on the shoe. The new technology to keep your feet temperature regulated is great, but there definitely needs some attention drawn back to support and cushioning!

By Warwick B

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

Worst running shoes i've ever bought. Did i get a dud pair? Had Progrid Triumph previously after moving away from Kayano and the Triumph was an amazing shoe. These Paramounts i ran 6km on my normal bitumen road route and was fully injury free beforehand, but while running with these brand new my knees ached, upper shins hurt and now my calves ache. I only weigh 70kg (140pounds).Beautiful Shoe but feels like you're running with straight legs on concrete. Sole had signs of wear and tear after one run and promotes running on your toes which is good but no shock absorbtion on my pair. Good moulding to my feet but major disappointment at $280 Australian. After i clean the dust off i'm taking them back tomorrow.

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

Bought this shoe as a distance running shoe. I ran a 5K and a half marathon in them they did alright. After that I ran 8 miles in them and they felt like I was running on 2x4's. The seemed very hard. My knees have never hurt until now. Nice shoe just doesn't have enough cushion for me.

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

Very solid shoe; however, I rate these equal to the new Guide's which are about half the price. The fit around my right arch was a bit off but other than that I've enjoyed about 350 miles of injury free running in the paramounts. If you are interested in a Saucony stability shoe then you may also want the check out the Guides and the Omni 7's (which I rate as Saucony's best shoe).

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

Excellent shoe. The upper does seem to regulate the temp. The shoe is light and feels great. I have been wearing the hurricane but I like this shoe much better. I will order another pair when they wear out. I just hope they don't change them too soon.

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I switched to these after the ASICS gel Nimbus 9 caused me injuries everytime I run. These felt good out of the box apart from one initial blister. So far I have put 110Km on these and they have not suffered from the heal wear others have said. I run in temperatures of 30 degree plus and the uppers do seam to regulate the temperature. I would give 5 stars but I think the high price knocks one star off.

Saw the other reviews before I put mine on and was very weary, but I love them. I had always worn a Hurricane and loved the 5, 7, and 9. Hated the 6 and the 8. This shoe has more cushion and is lighter as well. I thought the fit was right on par with the rest of the Saucony shoes I have.

By the warg

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Saucony Progrid Paramount Running Shoe:

I have 48 miles on mine and the lateral side of the heel where I land is already showing significant wear. The forefoot is not the traditional, roomy classic saucony forefoot fit. Even without any overlays and all the mesh, it is not a normal "d" width. It is narrower,than my new balance 902 "d" width shoe by at least 1/4"! Nor is the toe box deep, but rather quite shallow!. My final complaint is that the arch is collapsing. This shoe is definitely built for a smaller runner,I would say under 160lbs.

I have been an Asics wearer forever but the heel cup on the Gel Nimbus 9 is biigger than on previous models so I ad to switch. The Kinsei 2 wasn't out yet so I gave the Saucony a try. It felt great and I love the ride but the heel is wearing out at an incredible pace. The black portion is completely gone and I am down to the grey material. No way that this should happen in only 120 miles.

I don't get the bad reviews for these shoes. Maybe they got a bad pair. There is no way they wear out as fast as they are saying unless they are dragging their heals. I have had mine for 4-5 months and usually put about 30-40 miles a week on them. I am a forefoot runner and these IMO are the best out there for that. The shoe is neutral with a ton of cushing. I just checked the shoes and the wear on them is perfect for the amount of running I am doing. Actually they don't show that much wear. I try to do most of my running on trails that are either dirt or cinder. The shoes are amazing. There are a few shoes out there that feel good from the first time you put them on and these fit into that category. The only downside of the shoes IMO is the cost. Other than that I don't think you will find a better neutral shoe on the market.

Ususally with all this technology a shoe like this is over-engineered but in this case Saucony have created a real gem of a shoe.I still love Asics but i am reaally loving this shoe as it has a midsole profile of a faster stability/cushion shoe .Nice job Saucony!!

First Saucony shoe ever. This shoe is phenomenal, but you must be a fairly efficient GAIT'er already! The shoe is very light but also very cushy at the same time. I am a pure bred Asics guy, but the Kayano 13 and Nimbus 9 have not been kind to me with the new solid SoLyte which seems stiff to me after years of Speva. This shoe gets back to the quiet foot plant and the natural gait, quick heel-to-toe transition. Feels like a DS-Trainer on steroids really. Nice shoe, worth the hefty price tag. Just make sure you are biomechanically efficient before trying.

Mon, September 03,2007:
Snug heel fit(classic saucony), not too roomy toebox despite all the mesh- not as 'sloppy' as asics. Very good transition from midfoot to forefoot. No other way to describe it- the right amount of 'snugness'. Shoe has great flex for faster paced/hill workouts, as well as just enough cushioning/stability for mid/long runs for lightweight/average weight guys. The shoe actually feels lighter than it is when running- it's a very nice ride. I am 5'8, 148- 6:45-7:00 training pace for 10-15 miles a day, 20-22 long run and not a heel striker. Hope this helps.
