Mostly a great shoe I've been wearing this series for years, and it's still a great shoe, however, not all of the changes have been improvements to the core design. Flex fabric upper - comfortable, breathable. Stiffer midsole - hate it. But not as bad as some of your other shoes. These are racers, come on! Thicker tongue - less comfortable and doesn't stay in place like the previous one. These run small and narrow, so just know that you'll need one full size bigger. Overall running experience is still very good and still better than most I've tried. Seriously though, stop mucking with it.

Comfortable sneaker I just took these sneakers out of the box a few hours ago and have been wearing them around the house for a bit of a break in period......as other reviews have stated, these are a bit more narrow, even narrower than the A5 that i still have and love......but, for me, they are very comfortable so far....and i think the more I wear them, they might "give" a bit...I love the color of these sneakers...I wear nothing but Saucony......not only for running/walking but also for work, as I'm on my feet all day and the comfort of all my Saucony's are the best.......I do not recommend this particular sneaker if you have a wider foot tho.

PLEASE don't discontinue this shoe! I LOVE this shoe. I've been running for many years with many different shoes. But when I put this one on, I feel faster. They are lightweight and durable. I do think they take some getting use to if you have been wearing a high support shoe. It would be smart to run shorter distances in them to strengthen your foot at first. I wear them for short runs up to marathons and I love the way I feel faster and stronger in them. I am worried they are discontinuing this shoe... having a hard time finding it and getting it.

BRING BACK THE A5 Maybe the a5 spoiled me for all other shoes. This shoe probably works for some people, but I can't wear it for more than 8 (okay, maybe 10) miles without hating my feet. The a5, on the other hand, has taken me through marathons and the occasional 50K. The a6 is way too narrow and the upper is too stiff to stretch to accommodate my forefoot. I strongly dislike them.
