For starters, I run on pavement about 5K, aiming for three runs a week. I've been running in Sauconys since the late nineties. Probably the best of the bunch was an omni model I wore over ten years ago. My last pair (Trigon 5 Guide) didn't fit quite right. So this time, I went back to the Omni with the Omni 12. From the moment I put them on I knew they were right, they fit perfectly. I've been on the road with them, and I'm getting the cushioning I need. They're not too heavy, they're cool and breathe well. RRS says to go up a half size with these shoes -- I did that and have adequate room for my orthotics. These are the best shoes I've run in so far. Love them.
Try this, its a Great shoe!
I admit to being a sucker for Runner's World's Best Shoe choices- especially when my legs are screaming at me,"Try something new, please!!". So after running and liking Brooks Adrenalines and lately, many pairs of Nike Air Structures, I thought, "I'll try Saucony's again". Whoa, this isn't like any other Saucony I've run in. No boxy, clunky feel, really smooth heel to toe transition,and stable with great cushioning, but not mushy. My first pair of these won't be my last one. These are light fun shoes to lace up and head out in. RW doesn't lie.
Great shoe for heavier runners
Great shoe for heavier runner with pronation issues. I am 6 foot and 225 pounds and these so far have been best fit and comfort for me. I run 3 or 4 times a week. Usually 5k runs and a long run on weekends. They are cushioned well and provide just enough stability support for my needs. I run on trails also with them. The grey/blue is nice in a shoe for "bigger guys" and don't show dirt. Normally not many shoe colors other than white for stability or motion control shoes. I may go ahead and buy another pair soon they have done so well.
Great support shoe
I was looking for a replacement to my Mizuno wave Alchemy's and the people at RR suggested I should try out the omni 12, I was in between the Omni and the Brooks Adrenaline 13. But I'm glad I listened to the advice the from RR, I loved the Omni, it is so very supportive without being heavy, it breathes very well, wich is great since I live in a warmer climate, the front foot feels more cushioned than the Alchemy's, the overall looks of the shoe are very nice as well, I just hope it lasts long enough.
Best Running shoes I've had.
I have been running for about a year, I went to the local running shoe shop and was first fitted with a Tempo running shoe from Adidas. I couldn't understand why my feet hurt all the time. So for months and months and hundreds and hundreds of dollars wasted on different shoes. I went to a proper pro shop and was fitted with my first pair of Omni 12s. Out of the box and a 5 mile run and I was truly sold. Best fitting and man are they quick. Love them!
GOOD STABILITY AND CUSHIONING
The OMNI 12 is comfortable and provides good stability and cushioning for a smooth transition. The upper mesh is breathable and flexible. The shoe is not too rigid in design like my ASICS were and is much more comfortable. I've used them for a week and put about 50 miles on them with but one complaint and that is the yellow foam on the bottoms is already showing signs of wear; a bit more than I would anticipate but I'll order a second pair to rotate them.
Learning to Run Again
This was the most money I have ever spent on a shoe in my life, but it was well worth it. I am just getting back into running and these shoes really helped. They are comfortable and lightweight. My shins feel better and my heels better as well. I would recommend buying your shoes from a professional who can fit them for you, but if they pull these shoes out give them a go!

Good shoes, bought them to contrast with my Asics 2000, about the same weight, omni 12s have a straight last so they are a little stiff for me. But great shoes, would recommend them to any stabile shoe runner, high quality shoe. I am a 35 mile a week person at 140 lbs. If you like Asics, then stay with them.
Not bad shoes. Very comfortable to walk around in. I haven't had something other than Nike's for a number of years, and the thick sole took some getting used to. Mainly I run on the balls of my feet, and these weren't much better than some other shoes I have had for awhile. I'm sure if you strike with your heel first they would be good, that just isn't me.
Great shoe all around
Great shoe for my moderate pronation. It is very comfortable on long runs. The shoe just fits me perfect. Along with the Brooks Adrenaline GTS 14, I have found my shoes for the year. I will rotate these as I train for my runs this year. Saucony has made a great shoe.
Great support, was a replacement for my wave Alchemy's after Mizuno discontinued them, the staff at RR suggested them and I loved them since the first try, will buy the 13 as soon as they have the blue color avaliable.
The product arrived very quickly and just as described, with great service and quality and backed for a perfect guarantee.

Great for road or pavement running; not recommended for sports or team sports or crossfit
I run about 10miles a week and they are very comfortable. I would buy another pair.

A GREAT shoe!!
A great shoe!! That's why I keep buying the Saucony line. Saucony, you can't ever take the Omni out of production!! I'll never forgive you if you do!
Great shoe. Great price
I generally run in a shoe for years until the design changes too much. After running in the original Omnis, I switched to New Balance, then Brooks Adrenaline. I didn't like the last Brooks and so I came back to the Omni. I really like this version. It has a lot of pronation control and the shoe looks almost like a motion control shoe, but the pronation control is smooth without feeling harsh (which is a complaint I have with a lot of stability shoes). It is light enough for training runs and extremely comfortable. I've put about 100 miles on mine in the last 4 weeks, with my longest run in them being 9 miles. Forefoot cushioning is nice and toe box has adequate room without feeling sloppy. Great update.
Male, 160 pounds, run 25 miles per week.
