Need a fast shoe? Saucony delivers with the Type A6, the latest update to the speedy Type A series. This road racer receives a complete redesign in this update, but fans of prior versions can rest assured knowing that this version looks to continue its tenure as a lightweight and responsive shoe that delivers performance for anything from the 5K to the marathon.
What To Watch For
- Reconfigured Platform: An iBR+ blown rubber outsole is introduced for a more responsive toe-off, while drainage ports are retained for moisture management.
- New Upper Design: The modified placement of FlexFilm overlays should result in a more secure fit while keeping the interior seamless for minimal irritation on the foot.
- Reduced Weight: We measured the A6 at 5.4 oz for a Men’s size 9 and 4.5 oz for a Women’s size 8, which makes it a bit lighter than its predecessor.
