A lightweight racing flat built for the mild overpronator, the Saucony Fastwitch provides runners with a fast and supportive option on race day. With this eighth version, the shoe offers a nice updated upper for enhanced comfort while maintaining the same tooling as its predecessor.
The Fastwitch 8 utilizes an engineered mesh design for increased breathability and a softer feel. The softer material should help reduce potential for foot irritation while also helping to shed a little weight. The shoe continues to use FLEXFILM overlays which create a seamless web of added support.
Utilizing identical tooling to its predecessor, the Fastwitch 8 will provide the same underfoot feel that runners enjoyed in the 7th version. An SSL EVA midsole creates a springy ride, and a dual density medial post offers added support for overpronators. On the outsole, a PWRTRAC rubber design is used to provide sticky traction ideal for road racing.
