Based on the feedback we’ve heard from customers, the Saucony Fastwitch 5 was a bit of a dud for some fans of the Fastwitch series. We’re happy to see a more forgiving ride with the Fastwitch 6, which we think will put the supportive distance racer back among the competitive ranks.
But don’t just take it from us. Our good friend Pete Larson at Runblogger is a longtime fan of the Fastwitch dating back to version 2. We sent him a pair of the 6′s to see if he felt the shoe was back on track. Long story short, after being disappointed by the Fastwitch 5, he’s now considering wearing the 6 in an upcoming marathon – possibly some of the highest praise one can give a running shoe.
