Saucony Virrata Runblogger Review

Not gonna lie, we’re kinda hyper about how good the new Saucony Virrata is. Justin Bieber has his Beliebers, and the Chicago Bulls have their Superfans, but here at Running Warehouse, we’ve got our own little club forming: the Virratamaniacs.

Turns out, Pete Larson over at Runblogger is a card-carrying member of the Virratamaniacs as well. In his Saucony Virrata running shoe review, he found many aspects to love about the shoe, including the well-cushioned platform and streamlined upper fit. He makes a lot of comparisons to the Kinvara 2, and we think that’s a fair comparison in many respects (though of course the platform of the Virrata is level and the Kinvara is and has been at a 4mm offset.

Not to pile on the Virrata resources, but our superfan scrapbook also includes:

We’ll keep the photos of our Virrata shrine to ourselves…for now. Have you put some miles on the Virrata? We’d love to hear how you like it!

    I have over 160 miles on my first pair and bought another one I liked it so much ( have about 60 miles on that pair). I really like the feel of the shoe and it is the first zero drop shoe I have been able to wear for extended runs. I also like I don’t have that slapping sound that other zero drop shoes I had did. These are great shoes for training and for racing as they are that good and light. I went a half size up and the fit was perfect (normally a 11.5 and took a 12).

    I was running in merrell road gloves for alittle over a year… While I love them, and still run with them often, when I got up into the higher miles, like 10+, my feet took a pounding… I switched over to the bare access, which are OK, but I recently got the Virrata and really love them… I plan on using them in my next marathon

  • Lionel

    Best shoes i have ever worn, really. I used them on a 25 km race and on a triathlon… responsive, flexible, cushionned… perfect
    I love the black orange colour version
    but but but it is NOT normal that after only 70 km (~40 miles) the soles are that worn-out! I think Saucony really need to do something on it
