Bottom line

The Saucony Bullet Vegan is a low-profile footwear reminiscent of its track shoe ancestor. Like its predecessor, the Bullet Vegan is lightweight and well-constructed. The sole has a good grip on most surfaces and is reasonably-priced which is a big plus in its favor. The thin material does not give much support but is preferred by some for being flexible. It does run small and narrow which potential buyers need to consider.

Saucony Bullet Vegan History

The Bullet Vegan is based on the classic Saucony Bullet which debuted in 1985. The shoe was designed for the sport of track and field and had spiked soles and an upper made from nylon and suede.

The Bullet Vegan, meanwhile, was released in 2012 as part of Saucony’s Originals line. It has a low profile sole that very much resembles the track shoe which it was based on. This updated version of the original features an all-canvas upper and lining made of textile. The first release of the Bullet Vegan included two colorways for the men (Grey/Blue and Black/Orange) and three for the women (Blue/Pink, Grey/Yellow, and Grey/Blue).

Saucony Bullet Vegan Style

This low-top footwear has a slim look that would make a perfect combination with most outfits. For women, the Bullet Vegan would look great when paired with cropped pants, any colored jeans, or denim skirts. Men could style the Bullet vegan with sporty pants, shorts, and selvedge denim.

Fit & Sizing

The Saucony Bullet Vegan is available for both men and women with sizes ranging from 5 to 12. Half sizes are offered until 9.5. The low top design of the Bullet Vegan gives users good ankle mobility.

Notable Features

The Bullet Vegan is a minimalist shoe with the same sleek and streamlined silhouette of the original but updated to give it a more versatile and stylish look. Its most notable feature is, as its name suggests, the materials used in making it which are animal-friendly. From the originals’ suede upper, the shoe now sports a vegan upper made of canvas.

Additional Info

  • The Saucony Vegan Bullet comes with two sets of laces in different colors.
  • New colorways have since come out after the original five.
