Customer Reviews

Comments: The fit guide says "standard running shoe length" and of the multiple comments there was only one suggestion that it was short. I typically don't have to size up a half size even for shoes that have multiple reviews recommending it but for this one there's no way my usual 9 works. I'm sending these back for a 9.5 and will hope I don't need to go up to a 10.

Comments: I rocked the Saucony Zealot 2 for hundreds of miles. Here is my perspective:

It is not as good as the original Zealot. I don't know about you guys, but I could never get the heal to lock down correctly. It was like a haphazard slip and slide party back there. The toe box was good! I think the isofit was good from the ankle forward. And the cushion was good! But the more I ran in the Zealot the more I realized that the outsole rubber just broke down so quickly. It was just such a bummer to see a shoe I really enjoyed come up so incredibly short.
From: Dave, Visalia, CA, USA. December 27th 2016

Comments: If you're looking for a true successor to the original Zealot (one of my all-time favorites), check out the Saucony Breakthru 2! The fit might even be better, with plenty of room for the toes. And the ride is similar, with Powergrid instead of Everun. Maybe slightly more responsive than the original Zealot, but nowhere near as stiff as the Ride or Triumph. It's 8mm drop instead of 4mm, but it feels more stable despite the higher drop. Love it!

I also have the Zealot 2, and while I'll continue to run in it occasionally, the Breakthru 2 is superior in every category IMHO. The Zealot 2 feels too padded, and overly snug up front, threatening to push in my big toe on longer runs when my feet swell. While Everun may technically have better energy return, I prefer a little more cushion.

Comments: The updated Zealot is not worth it in my opinion.  Saucony changed the heel cup which gave me blisters (I've probably had less than five blisters in the last 8/9 years all caused from shoe changes).  I gave up on the shoe and found some original Zealots online.  Long time Saucony user, Kinvara and Zealots are my go to shoes.  I may just have to find a different shoe unless Saucony redesigns the Zealot.

Comments: Wrong direction compared to original zealot.  Way too narrow in the toe box. Returned
From: Moose, Providence, RI, USA. September 21st 2016

Comments: Saucony, if it isn't broke, don't fix it.

The Zealot 2 lost a lot of things that I loved about the Zealot 1, but has a couple of improvements...
First and foremost, the shoe is definitely narrower and shorter than the Zealot 1.  Big disappointment, as I felt the fit of the Zealot 1 was perfect.  It's also heavier, but that's not a deal breaker, unlike the fit. LOVE the Everrun. Felt almost Boost'esq.  Also, the treads on the Zealot 2 have much better traction than the 1.

For me, the jury is still out on this one.  Going to give it 2 or 3 more runs before I decide if I'm going to return it.  Maybe I go up a 1/2?  Maybe I order another pair of Zealot 1's? 
From: Steve, Newburgh, IN, USA. July 25th 2016

Comments: The original zealot is still my favorite. I think they went in the wrong direction with the next Gen zealots as these are heavier and bulkier with too much squish. Why would you add weight and bulk to a nuetral trainer and and call it improved?  After 40 miles over 2 days in them I ended up ripping out the "ever run" crap liner from under the insole and they feel much better, more like the originals. The new kinvaras have same issue because of the ever run material in my opinion.  They need to drop the whole "ever run" campaign and stick to what made them such great shoes in the past. 
From: Sean, OH, USA. July 22nd 2016

Comments: I like the newer Zealot version but they are definitely larger, heavier and bulkier than the original.  Much like the Adidas Boost shoes the foamy layer in the sole seems to add weight or clunkiness to the run.  The cushioning is nice but I don't feel as fast/responsive in these compared to the original Zealot.  The toe box also seems to wear down much quicker than original due to enlarged size.  Color Options are better here than Zealot #1.  I like the shoes but not close to as much as I liked the original. Rating 7/10 on Zealot #2.  Rating on Zealot #1 for me was 9/10.  Purchased Neon/Blue option and ran over 100 miles in newer version.  Just my 2 cents. 
From: Ross, St. Louis, MO, USA. July 14th 2016

Comments: I have gone through 5 pairs of the original Zealot. My favorite shoe so far.  This shoe is different.  It has a slightly wider toe box and feels slightly larger than the original. Since I have to go up a full size since Sauconys run so small, it's hard to know if I need to go down a half size on this shoe.  I just finished a 20 mile long run in the Zealot 2, and I only received them a few days ago.  Already have 47 miles on them.  So far, I like this shoe for the extra cushion and ride, but I am not sure if it is a good racing shoe. The original Zealots are fine for training and for anything up to a full marathon.  This shoe might be a little too soft for racing a full marathon.  I like this shoe, but it is softer with the everun than the original.
