How We Chose the Best Saucony Running Shoes
With more than 250 stores in communities across the country, Fleet Feet is the largest run speciality store in the U.S. with more than four decades of experience outfitting runners with the best running shoes, apparel and gear. We focus on running and walking gear, so we can be the experts and bring you the best advice possible.
Through our personalized Fleet Feet fit id® Outfitting process with 3D foot scanning technology, we use data from over 4 million foot scans (and counting) to give us unique insights into how running shoes from Saucony and other top running brands fit and perform on a wide variety of feet. Additionally, thanks to 100,000+ runners participating in our local running clubs and training programs each year, we can see firsthand how the newest running shoes and gear perform for all different types of runners, each with different goals in mind.
Collectively, our experienced team of Fleet Feet editors has tried, tested and fallen in love with hundreds of different running shoes from dozens of the world’s top running brands. With this knowledge, we meticulously pore over the smallest details like fit, comfort, materials, durability and weight, to decide which Saucony running shoes and gear are the best. From running shoe and gear reviews to workout tips and inspiration, we are your go-to source for running knowledge and motivation.
With this experience and expertise, we’ve tested the best Saucony running shoes based on:
- Purpose. Comparing apples to apples
- Performance. How well does it do its job?
- Real-world testing. We put them to the test on real runs
- Price. Is it affordable? Does its performance justify its cost?
- Sales. Best-selling models are best-sellers for a reason
- fit id® data. Our 4 million+ foot scans show how shoes fit on different feet
- Availability. It won’t be good for you if it’s not in stock
- Designer interviews. We ask the people who made it

fit id® & Dynamic Pressure Mapping
Buying online isn’t for everyone. To try on your Saucony sneakers before you buy them, visit a local Fleet Feet store for an in-person fitting experience.
We fit you for running shoes through our own fit id® outfitting process. The one-on-one process uses a 3D scanner to take precise measurements of your feet. This in combination with our *Dynamic Pressure Mapping system helps our highly trained Outfitters assess your foot’s path of motion and stride as you walk so they can find the perfect shoes for you. Then, using data points for each foot and decades of experience in the industry, we help you find the right gear for your unique feet and specific needs.
