The Shadow 6000 is probably my best and most comfortable Saucony's.
This will get beat to death as it is very comfortable.
Comfort, balance, stability and durability are great benefits you can get from these shoes.
I really love the quality of these shoes.
Updates to Saucony Shadow 6000
- The Saucony Shadow 6000 is engineered to deliver a combination of stability, balance and cushioning for high-mileage runs. It comes with extra flexibility in the heel and improved cushioning in the forefoot.
- It also features the triangular lug in its outsole that delivers impressive grip on both dry and wet surfaces. This also gives added durability for long-lasting use.
Saucony Shadow 6000 size and fit
The Shadow 6000 is available standard running shoe length and width for both men’s and women’s versions. The shoe is designed for a wide variety of foot types. It delivers a snug and comfortable fit in the midfoot and heel area. The forefoot area is a bit wide for foot splay.
The outsole unit of the Shadow 6000 uses the XT-600 rubber material that delivers added traction and durability on high wear areas. The high abrasion resistant properties protect the shoe from the damaging elements of the road. The triangular lugs in the outsole also delivers impressive grip on both wet and dry surface.
The shoe uses the Ionic Cushioning System, a mixture of Polyurethane and EVA midsole, that delivers durable cushioning and underfoot protection. This cushioning system has great shock absorbent capacity and high energy-return for a responsive ride. It is highly reliable during the heel strike phase of each stride.
The upper built of the Saucony Shadow 6000 is made from durable and lightweight mesh that keeps the foot cool and dry. It is also designed to provide added support. For impressive step-in comfort, the shoe has a padded tongue and heel collar.
