Comments about Womens Saucony Fastwitch 8 Running Shoe:

I have very flat feet and had been wearing motion control shoes with Spenco orthotics as my podiatrist recomended. I was constantly battling sprained ankles, plantar fasciitis and being in a lot of pain. It got so bad that I couldn't wear any shoe without the orthotics! Luckily I read about barefoot running and how it, if done properly, could help my feet. Since I live in NYC, running barefoot (eeww) is NOT an option, but found that running in minimalist shoes strengthened my feet to the point that I didn't need to wear orthotics anymore and got rid of all of my chronic foot injuries, not to mention changing from a heavy, long striding rearfoot striker to a softer midfoot/forefoot striker with a much shorter stride. Yeay!

Up until recently, I was a devotee of the Nike free line, especially the 3's and the 4's which had very little cushion and a low heel to toe drop. But now the she completely changed with the Free RN line, and doesn't work for me at all, being it has a much narrower sole which made my foot overpronate more, and caused my ankles and knees to hurt. I looked through reviews and saw that many people had similar issues with the new Nike free line and had recommended the Saucony Fastwitch as a replacement. Even though it is considered a racing flat, it feels the closest to what I am used to and my ankle and knee issues went away. They are extremely breathable and are comfortable without socks, which is what I prefer. The only downside I am finding is that the sole seems to be wearing out very quickly and I will probably have to buy a new pair much sooner than usual (3-4 months instead of my usual 6- 8months) which is suprising since I have been running solely on a treadmil for the last few months. All in all though, I am pleased. I might try out some Merrells later, but these are good so far.

These were a disappointment. There is absolutely nothing to them!! The tongue is so thin that I can't tie them tightly because it cuts into the bridge of my foot. I sent these back. I really miss the old green ones.
