Who should not buy it

The Saucony Shadow 6000 may work better for you if you’re looking for a generous amount of responsive and bouncy cushioning. The Saucony Jazz Original is another good option if you’re looking for something with arch support.

The Saucony Grid Web takes you back to the future

Those who have worn the sneaker love its retro yet still futuristic design. Coming from a shoe designed in the 2000s, it's a look back into what people envisioned the future would be.

The way this was executed was loved by wearers who raved about its vibrant colors and chunkiness. It’s an attention grabber, described by one of them as a good shoe for those who “want to stand out in the crowd.” Furthermore, its laces can be configured inside the sneaker, which another person thought was a “nice touch.”

The Saucony Grid Web makes for dreamy walks

Testers were extremely satisfied with the comfort of the sneaker, with one of them saying that having them on is like “walking on clouds.” Its upper felt comfortable to them, particularly because they are well-padded.

Its “white loose” mesh material has been praised for allowing the shoe to be very breathable and lightweight. Its lightness surprised many people, one of whom said that it was “much lighter than it looks” considering its chunkiness.

This comfort comes from day one, with one reviewer sharing that they almost felt “already worn in” after taking them out of the box.

The Saucony Grid Web is a runner’s relief

The sneaker got lots of attention from Saucony loyalists who have experience running. One of them recommends this to anyone between a “serious runner” and someone who needs it for “everyday walking around town.”

Another loyalist mentions that it performs well even for longer runs, saying that that has been a “big positive” for them. Lastly, a former runner found themselves yearning to run again after wearing these for their three-to-five-mile daily walks.

The Saucony Grid Web has got a lot of the goods

The sneaker was found to have features that allow it to run well. Its Grid technology has proven to be effective, leading to a combination of stability and support which didn’t go unnoticed by the wearers of the sneaker. 

Furthermore, a wearer shares that they feel a good amount of grip from the sneaker’s sole.

The Saucony Grid Web is an amazing fit

The sneaker worked well for people ordering true-to-size for normal-width feet. One person said that they felt it was “secure and great on [their] feet.”

While it lacked arch support, flat footers loved its default form while those with arches got by with an insole.

The Saucony Grid Web’s collab is groovy

Fresh Rags, a streetwear boutique out of Florida, made a manatee-inspired collab for this sneaker. People praised its awesome and distinct aesthetics, loving the colors used especially in its beautiful outsole.

The Saucony Grid Web is a good investment

The Saucony Grid Web retails at $120 which is significantly higher than the price point of the average Saucony sneaker at $90. Regardless, people still praised the shoe for what it delivered, one of whom said that it was a reasonable price for what they got.

How does Saucony Grid work?

GRID is Saucony's patent technology that was introduced in 1991. This tech is made of fibers that compress independently, thus giving its wearers a stable cushioning. GRID technology is usually placed on the heel.

As the foot's heel strikes the ground, the GRID bends to the heel's shape for superb cushioning. This technology works like a trampoline.

Unlike the bouncy slides or castles, usually filled with gas or liquids, the trampoline provides its jumpers more control over their movement because of the trampoline fibers that stretch while we jump on it.
