Saucony ProGrid Mirage 2 Running Shoe - Women's

So far so good. These shoes fit true to size (I usually wear a 9.5 in running shoes and these were perfect). The sole felt pretty hard the first time I put them on, but after the first run, my feet and arches felt supported. I don't overpronate, so they do feel like they have a little more stiffness than I'm used to, but I just found out my knees sort of collapse inward when I run, so I'm hoping these might help with that by maybe encouraging my foot position to change a little bit.
These shoes are in Saucony's lightweight category and just because the description here says they "cushion and support every stride" doesn't mean they have anywhere close to the amount of cushioning that traditional cushioned shoes have, so if you're looking for cushioning, these are probably not the shoes for you. They're just marginally beefier than minimalist shoes. Even so, I like them and am pleased with their overall performance so far.
