Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Fastwitch 4 Running Shoe:

I have posted another review for these shoes after taking them for three runs only. Now that I've been running in them for over two weeks and training for a half-marathon, I can say that the shoe is incredibly light, very snug around the heel, very breathable. However, it does not offer a lot of cushioning. Moreover, I started to feel that the base of my Achilles is rubbing against the shoe, so maybe 1/2 size up would have been a better choice.
This is a great shoe, particularly if you have a small frame. But I definitely need to alternate between this and a more cushioned shoe if I want to enter the race injury-free.

I have an average arch, medium width feet with normal size heel (not narrow), small frame (5'1"/105 lbs), run 4-5 times a week for 20-25 miles total. I need a shoe with large toe box as my big toe is very "bumpy".

I hope this helps.

    Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Fastwitch 4 Running Shoe:

    I've been running for 30 yrs and recently needed to change my running style. I started Chi running and looked into minimalist shoes. I started with the Kinvara but these shoes are better. The toebox is slightly less roomy than the Kinvara but it's not an issue and the cushioning is perfect for a midfoot striker. You feel like you're not wearing anything without feeling suseptible to the environment. Mostly I feel fast.

        Comments about Womens Saucony Grid Fastwitch 4 Running Shoe:

        I have a light frame - 5'1"/ 105 lbs and used to run in Adidas Boston (bought several pairs before they got discontinued). Since then, I could not find a pair of shoes that would work for me. Until I found this one. For someone with my frame, these shoes are a gift from God.

        I have an average arch, B width and need a big toe box for my "bumpy" big toe. I run 20-25 miles/week. I do one or two half-marathon or 10-miler races per year and recently started to train for a half-marathon that will be held in early September.

        So far, I ran in these shoes for a few shorter runs and a longer 9-mile run. I could run faster and longer than in my previous shoes. These shoes are awesome! They are super lightweight and I can barely feel them, although they still provide cushioning. They are very breathable and dry out super fast. The top of the shoe is soft, thus providing enough room and not pushing down on my big toe. Transition from heel to toe is great. Good pronation control as well.

        I love, love, LOVE this shoe. Very responsive. Extremely light weight and great for grinding out repeats on the track. Be warned, however, if ground conditions are wet, your socks will get SOAKED! One of the reasons they are lightweight is because the sole has cut outs through to the liner which I discovered running across wet grass. Not a deal breaker for me, though. I just avoid wet conditions when wearing these.

                I really like the way this shoe fits my foot but as a disclaimer, my foot is narrow and I have a higher arch. Like most minimalist shoes, it's going to be a bit on the narrow side for most people.
                I love how light weight it is and it's very breathable. I would consider it a great speed interval or race day shoe. I run on a lot of gravel roads that will try the durability of any shoe, so I'm not sure yet how these will hold up under those conditions.
                I plan to use these primarily for race day.

                  I have only run in these shoes a couple of times but already I love them. The shoe is very light, like some other reviews said, "it feels like a slipper" - literally it feels like nothing is on your feet yet there is padding in all the right places. I rotate between these shoes and some Mizuno wave riders. I typically run 12-16 miles/week. Kudos on the colors - finally some shoes I can get excited about wearing!

                      I am using this shoe for my speed workouts in my 1/2 marathon training. I'm debating running in them for the race but will need to do more training runs in them to decide. I love how light-weight they are, with the first step you'll feel a difference in the weight! I also really enjoy a roomy shoe in the toe-area and for Sauconys these are very roomy (possible due to the breathable material found around most of the shoe, including the sole). So far I have no complaints!

                        I was looking for a super light running shoe for half marathons. So far, this shoe is great. I'm doing my long runs in them and have had no issues. They feel way lighter than my other shoes but support just as well. I don't know yet if they will wear out quickly, but they should get me through three half marathons this fall. Plus, I really like the color!

                        I really like these shoes. I have been struggling with shoes lately and these work perfectly for me. Even as light as they are they feel cushiony. My only concern is that they may be too light for daily use but I am gradually upping the number of days I wear them per week. They felt great during a 13 mile run with tempo miles mixed in but my body was sore later that day - I think from less cushioning then I am used to. I also think they may wear out quickly. But otherwise I really like them.

                        These are my first racing shoes - I have been running for years in big, heavy, very structured, very cushioned shoes. I bought them to try for speed and tempo work, and am hooked! They feel like slippers, but the arch is supported and the cushioning makes them feel springy. My aches and pains are no different than with my big ol' trainers. I'm wearing them for a 10K this weekend, and plan to wear them for my next half marathon next month. My only complaint is that there are not more colors to choose from.

                        I loved the Fastwitch 3s, so went with the 4s this season because they are flashy. I love that the inside heel area is lined, but I noticed some weird rubbing patterns on the inside of my midfoot when running in these without socks. After just two races (10Ks) the treads near the back of the midfoot of the shoes are starting to shred off. I don't think this will influence the integrity of the shoe, but it was a little alarming.

                          I run road races and speedwork in these shoes. Love the quick response and lightweight of them. Just enough support in the arch. Super comfortable, honestly feels as if I am not wearing any shoes.
