Summary

We spent 8.4 hours reading reviews from experts and users. In summary, this is what runners think:

6 reasons to buy

  • The lightweight mesh material used in the upper of the Saucony Seeker is breathable and comfortable to the skin.
  • The overlay system has been hot-melted onto the upper, turning it into a single unit that’s free from unnecessary layers, excess stitching and added weight.
  • Cushioning for the dimensions of the foot is given by the padded tongue and collar.
  • Runners welcomed the inclusion of a comfortable sock liner, which offers contoured support for the individual wearing the shoe.
  • Shock attenuation and responsible underfoot cushioning are given by the high-quality mid-sole foam units.
  • The XT-600 rubber is appreciated by many because it provided long lasting protection against wear and tear, as well as traction over the asphalt.

1 reasons not to buy

  • There were complaints that the Saucony Seeker looks somewhat bulky, which went in contrast to its lightweight nature.

Bottom line

The Saucony Seeker is gaining ground as a go-to shoe for those who want to have lightweight and comfortable performance on the roads. It’s designed for neutral runners who want to have a great shoe for their athletic activities, but it’s also efficient when it comes to casual purposes.

Updates to Saucony Seeker

  • The Saucony Seeker seeks to provide great service to its wearer through high quality systems and superb technologies. On top of all that, this shoe also has an appealing design that certainly catches the eye. A lightweight disposition allows it to meld with the foot, essentially keeping the runner focused on performing, rather than noticing the shoe that’s wrapped around the foot.
  • The upper unit uses a mesh material that has a look that resembles knitted cloth. It’s soft on the skin and is flexible, as well. It even allows air to enter the shoe to keep the foot well-ventilated. The overlay system has been hot melted onto the upper, doing away with too much stitching. A plush tongue and collar cushions the foot well.
  • The mid-sole unit has a height that’s adequate enough to accommodate more of the cushioning units that are present in this shoe. Injection molded foam and the Saucony Heel Grid System work together to make the underfoot platform more comfortable and secure. Shock absorption is also given to the runner, making each foot strike less straining to the foot.
  • Durable carbon rubber makes the outsole very resilient against wear and tear. It covers the entire length of the outsole, so it’s sure to deliver all-encompassing exterior protection. It also gives traction, which is needed for surface control. Flex grooves allow the platform to move in accordance with the foot.

Saucony Seeker size and fit

The Saucony Seeker is true to its size. The sizes that are available for this model follow the standard measurements to which men and women are most acclimated. The width is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. Its semi-curved shape follows the natural curvature of the human foot.


Outsole

The XT-600 is a carbon rubber that’s placed throughout the length of the external sole unit of the Saucony Seeker. Durable and sturdy, it is able to protect the shoe from surface friction, wear and potential tears from road debris. It’s also responsible for traction, so it allows the runner to be more in control of the roads.

Flex grooves on the outsole allow the foot to be more flexible. It’s particularly helpful when it comes to the toe-off phase of the gait cycle, where the foot is expected to flex more.


Midsole

Injection molded Ethylene vinyl acetate or EVA is used as part of the underfoot cushioning system of the Saucony Seeker. It has a responsive and durable nature, so it stays efficient even after many uses. It’s springy, as well, so it allows the foot to feel an enabled ride.

The Grid System is placed in the heel area. It consists of a foam technology that employs a grid shape, which attenuates shock during impact. It makes the foot strike easier and less taxing to the runner.

The REACT2U is a sock liner that’s placed immediately above the mid-sole unit. It offers more cushioning to the underfoot. Made from memory foam, it follows the contours of the wearer’s foot, making sure that they get a well-supported running experience.


Upper

The mesh material used in the upper unit is lightweight. It also has a knitted design, so it’s soft and comfortable. It allows air to seamlessly enter the shoe in order to keep the foot cool and dry.

Hot melted overlays are fused with the main fabrics of the upper. They do not have a substantial weight and they do not make the coverage restrictive or stiff. Connected to the lacing system, these overlays help in adjusting how the upper wraps around the foot.

The tongue and collar of the Saucony Seeker have adequate padding to keep the interior as comfortable as possible for the entire form of the foot.
