Details:

The Saucony Mirage 2 has you covered. This lightweight, supportive daily trainer has a responsive, fast midsole that works well for racing and training alike. The low stack height brings your heel closer to the ground to promote a more natural footstrike, and the thin upper allows feet to breathe from mile 1 to 26.

CUSHIONING

  • Heel ProGrid Lite is a grid-like foam piece that sits under the heel for lightweight shock absorption.
MIDSOLE

  • Supportive TPU Arch is a thermoplastic unit in the midfoot that provides support for mild overpronation.
UPPER
  • Open Mesh covers the upper and is a breathable lightweight fabric.
  • Hydrator Collar Lining cups the heel and is designed to provide next-to-skin comfort and maximize wicking.
  • EVA Sockliner offers additional under-foot cushioning.
  • Strobel Last with the upper stitched to full length HRC Strobel Board, for responsive, enhanced cushioning and a soft underfoot feel.

OUTSOLE

  • XT-900 throughout the outsole is a carbon rubber material that offers durable traction.
  • Blown Rubber is a lightweight, flexible material in the forefoot that offers enhanced cushioning and a smooth ride.

Comments: Great shoe right out of the box.  I run 30-40 miles a week at around a 8:00 Min pace. Wanted a lighter shoe with the support these advertised and they meet their description perfectly.  For me the fit is true, I don't really know why the shoe fit guide here suggested a 1/2 size smaller, as it is absolutely not necessary for me.  My foot borders on wide, but most medium width shoes fit, and these hold true to that.

I would definitely recommend these to anyone wanting to head towards a shoe with a minimalist attitude, but support and cushioning to ease the transition.  Great shoe for training and racing any distance for me.

Comments: Saucony mirage 2 is finally a Saucony product that fits me well...have been running in Nike elite so the lower heel drop of Mirage2 is something i am being careful with .......some runners can make the switch quickly.....i am not one of them....I will stay using Nike elite 5 and work my way into mirage2 slowly.....do some walking and very slow jogging in these...I used saucony many moons ago so wanted to find Saucony that will work in the future for me...Mirage2 has some support with under 10 oz for size 9....5mm heel drop.....nice design ....

Comments: These shoes are great, i was running in Saucony Progrid Guide 5's before so i felt the difference in heel to toe at first but i got used to it after a few runs and its really strengthened my calves. I put in around 35-40 miles a week and these are just fine for that
