Description

Flexible, technical, and rocking a low drop.

Securely positioned at the head Saucony's minimalist Natural series, the Women's ProGrid Mirage 3 Running Shoe is a departure from standard traditional running shoes. These are often overbuilt, heavily cushioned, and fitted with a bulky heel that you're forced to drag around mile after mile. The Mirage is a lightweight, minimalist shoe with plenty of flexibility and a low drop; your heel and forefoot are nearly horizontal to make it easy to run on your midfoot or forefoot. At less than nine ounces, this road shoe could be described as feathery light. Seamless construction and FlexFilm technology ensure that even the uppers taken on a minimalist design approach. Moderate mileage runners and those in need of little pronation support will find this shoe a more natural way to hit the pavement or ease their transition into a future zero drop shoe selection.

The Kinvara 3, the Virrata, and Hattori LC shoes also fall into Saucony's Natural series, and each shoe is lighter and more flexible than the last. Only the Kinvara 3 features the same 4mm drop and a similar level of cushioning (with less support) than the Mirage 3, while the Virrata serves as the zero-drop trainer of the bunch, and the Hattori LC is the most minimalist, ultralight, and low-to-the-ground choice in the series.

  • Minimalist Flex Film upper uses welding to reduce seams and overall weight and helps secure your foot in place
  • HRC Strobel Board is a layer of HRC foam running underneath the sockliner to increase comfort and offer light cushioning
  • HydraMAX collar lining provides light cushioning around your ankle for comfort and protection
  • Supportive TPU arc offers additional support underneath the arch
  • ProGrid Heel and High Abrasion EVA provide absorb impact and smooth out the ride on the road without adding unnecessary weight
  • Low, 4mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) means that there's just a 4mm difference between the measured height of your heel and the measured height of your forefoot
  • This low drop creates a natural foot position inside the shoe, encourages proper biomechanical flex, and allows you to more easily utilize a mid or forefoot striking style
  • XT-900 rubber is flexible, highly abrasion-resistant, and it features triangular lugs that offer supreme grip and traction on the road

Mirage round 2!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

This is my 2nd pair of Saucony Mirage running shoes and I am pumped that they are just as awesome, if not better than the last! These are a great running/ gym shoe that are all you need if you are all about jogging around town or getting sweaty at your local gym. I have a bit wider last and these fit great. They are supportive and durable. Highly recommended shoe that wont break the bank!

I don't want to take them off

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

As I write, I've put 150 miles on my first pair.

The first time I put these on, I didn't want to take them off. They have just the right blend of supportive fit and light weight and feel wonderful on my feet. They hug my heel nicely - many running shoes don't - and have good cushioning while still being responsive. While I tend to do speedwork and shorter races in Kinvaras, Mirage have been my go-to shoe for the latter part of a marathon buildup, performing well for long training runs and the race itself. (Even after the marathon was done and I was exhausted and staggering, I didn't feel desperate to get out of them. I had a change of shoes packed, but would have been ok if I had had to keep them on for a while.)

That said, the one caution you need to know about both Kinvara and Mirage is that you can't wear super-low socks. They're pretty much guaranteed to chafe the skin over your Achilles unless you wear socks that come up higher than the shoes.

Also, these are definitely a road shoe - they don't have an aggressive enough lug pattern to deal with trails, or mud, or snow.
