CUSHIONING

  • SRC Impact Zone begins at the heel and extends to under the midfoot. SRC stands for Super Rebound Compound and the material is designed to provide shock attenuation to set the foot up for a smooth transition.
  • Heel ProGrid with Respon-Tek is a foam grid like piece that sits under the heel and is designed to absorb heel strike energy.
  • SRC Forefoot Cushioning sits under the metatarsal region and is designed to provide a smooth toe-off.
MIDSOLE
  • SSL EVA is Saucony's premium midsole material that is designed to maximize rebound and durability while minimizing weight. SSL stands for Saucony Super Lite.
UPPER
  • eVent Bootie sits below the sockliner and is sewn in the bootie. It is engineered to waterproof the interior of the shoe.
  • YKK Zipper is located at the top of the gaiter.
  • EVA Sockliner offers additional cushioning directly under foot.
  • HRC Strobel Board is full length and is a High Rebound Compound that increases cushioning and step-in comfort.
OUTSOLE
  • Vibram Outsole is designed with a durable and aggresive pattern that increases traction in all weather conditions.
  • External Bedrock Outsole (EBO) is sandwiched between the outsole and midsole and is designed to protect the foot from rocks.

Comments:  If you wear this shoe, you will get looks and comments.  Trust me, it takes a lot to make someone stare on the subway.  Part of the reason is that nobody's seen it before.  I don't think I've seen it in a retail outlet.  You have to look for this or stumble across it while looking for another shoe on the web. It's something a ninja would use or Batman would wear while hanging out in the bat cave.  A zipped waterproof gaiter with a vibram sole and dressed in black....it's got enough testosterone to make Tim Allen grunt.  This shoe might be  visiting us from the future.

Now about the feel.  Could Saucony put some kind of cushioning in this shoe?  Having worn a progrid shoe before, I know Saucony can provide some level of shock dissipation.  I don't know if it's because of the vibram sole, but I'm not feeling the trampoline effect.  Merrell use vibram soles and their shoes look AND feel great.  Perhaps the words of the great philosopher Billy Crystal are appropriate in this situation-"It is better to look good than to feel good."

Comments: First 4 miles today at lunch on snow packed roads. Shoe fits like a glove. I was skeptical about the gaiter, but it is perfect. I
would recommend this shoe to anyone running out doors in the cold and snow. Awesome shoe...

Comments: The Razor has worked great for me so far. There's lots of grip on snow and ice. The extra 2-3 inches of waterproof gaiter makes this shoe stay dry in any trail puddle, slush and snow.

Comments: I live in Minneapolis and I bought a pair of Razors for winter running.  I've used them twice now and think they are great.  My most recent run was a short five miles in snow.  It was just 15 degrees outside and my feet stayed dry and toasty.  I thought the shoes had great traction and like the stability that they provided (they are for trail running after all).  I thought the shoes were very comfortable.

Comments: Has to be 1 of the best running sneakers to date. They are comfortable, supportive and keeps you dry on those not so dry days. I ended up buying two pairs for that reason.

From: Cisco, New York, NY

Comments: The Razor fit true to size. I wear an 11.5 and they fit snug at 11.5- with 2 pairs of socks. They kept my feet dry while running through mud, wet grass and puddles. I was worried the top of the gaiter wouldn't be tight enough because I have small ankles, but it worked great. The traction handled Chester Creek just fine. I bought the Razor for winter running, but I'm starting to enjoy trail running so much that I may need to buy another pair before then! (I have no idea how well the vibram soles hold up, I may leave more feedback when I find out.)
