    The Saucony Zealot is an all-around very solid shoe. The technologies that reside in this shoe, including the ISOFIT system and PWRGRID+ are really very sound advancements.

    I expect long term outsole wear to be outstanding. The ISOFIT upper is a comfort and fitting innovation.

    I have to start this review off by saying that the Zealot is a fantastic looking shoe, and the Viziglo orange colorway that Saucony sent me is bright. Very bright!

    It wasn’t quite agile enough for faster turnover sessions on the track.

  • 70 / 100 | Runner's World | Level 5 expert
