Running Shoes: Saucony vs. Nike

Running Shoes: Saucony vs. Nike

Post by cello ma » Mon, 12 Mar 2001 18:53:28


Hi!

I just traded in my old pair of Nike Zoom Air(?) which I've had for 2 years.
I usually run about 2-3 times per week 3-5k. I bought a pair of Saucony
which had a feature called GTO (?). My main criteria for shoes is that I am
a heavy guy (103kg) so I'm quite worried about my knees. Does any one know
about these Saucony shoes? I am not fimilar with the brand and just want to
make sure I have made a mistake.

Thanks in advance for your reply.
Doug.

Saucony makes some very fine shoes and they're pretty popular in the USA.  You
didn't mention the specific model you bought, so I can't really comment.

Thanks Eric,

The model, I think, is called Omni Grid or XT 600. Does this say anything to
you?

Let me know!
Doug.

I am heavy (for a runner) at 210 lbs.  I have used Saucony shoes before and
been very happy with them.  If you choose the right model for your
particular size and biomechanics and style of running, Saucony can be a very
good choice,
