Men's SAUCONY® PROGRID™ OMNI 9 :: Just the shoe over-pronators want: the men's Saucony® ProGrid™ Omni 9 not only gives you the stability you need, it also has a cushioned feel you'll love. With added SRC™ cushioning technology in the heel and forefoot, and increased mid-sole posting, this shoe is ideal for over-pronators who want a shoe that eliminates excessive motion without feeling clunky. 12.5 ounces
I ran in the Hurricane 10's and loved the cushioning. These shoes continue to have that good cushioned feel. They are a bit heavy, but that comes with cushioning. I bought a half size bigger than the Hurricane 10's I had because they felt a bit tight. Would rather have a bit more room than not. Will get a better idea with some more miles in them. Overall good feel.
Different than the 8's?
Much better/ improved sole than the 8's. However, I started having achilles issues (no change in running duration/ intensity) right after switching. Had no problems in the 8's. Wondering if they changed anything that could have impacted this. Otherwise, I think it's been a good shoe and I liked the 8's. I'm going to try something else and see if achilles is better.
Stuck In, Ohio
As an older runner, I was intrigued by the recent minimalist trends. But my feet suffered, and I found I just plain needed the support. I had never tried Saucony before, but this shoe seems to have superior arch support over the Asics Gel-Kayano (my old stand-by). The shoes are a little heavier than I am used to, but so far this has not been an issue.
As good as the Omni 8, a little heavier
They are a little heavy, but I like the extra cushion. Only problem I really have is that the right foot shoe feels bigger & I can't get it as tight as I would like. They look really good. Way more reflective material than the 8's. They seem to be wearing well ( only about 40 miles on them as of Nov. 24, 2010). If you wore the 8's, you will like the 9's.
Bad Axe, Mi.
I've worn out many pairs of Progrid Omnis, but these were my first Omni 9's. I rarely get blisters, however, these shoes the first time out, gave me blisters on my right middle toe and back of my right heel. After a few more runs, the blisters healed and the shoes are great, just like previous Omnis.
These are my second running shoes. I usually run in our high school track and around 2 miles per day three times a week. The shoes are true to the challenge.
