Good to know

The Saucony Originals Bullet Terry is available in both men’s and women’s sizing. Men’s sizes range from 7 to 14, women’s from 5 to 14. All sizes are offered in medium widths.

Built in a super low profile, the shoe offers the ankles an unhindered range of motion. While the shoe’s terry material is soft and lightweight, it is surprisingly durable as well. Moreover, both collar and tongue feature soft fabric linings, which add comfort and support to each step.

With its streamlined, classy look, the Saucony Bullet Terry shoes gift its wearers a dose of sophistication. Almost any outfit fits this Saucony Bullet sneaker model. Its wearers can go laidback and street-casual with shorts and jeans, as well as put on their workout clothes to go and hit the gym. Available colorways for the shoe are Black, Gray, and Maroon.

Without a doubt, this model’s most eye-catching feature is its super low and slim profile. Next to that is its iconic minimal outsole, patterned after a cross-country runner’s tread. In between these two lies the new exciting feature, the soft terry cloth upper, which adds a modern touch to the retro-vibed shoe.

In 1985, the first Saucony Bullet appeared. It was a spike-soled track-and-field shoe with a suede-nylon upper. To make it legal to wear in the streets, Saucony later shed off the spikes, replaced it with a rubber outsole with a cross-country platform, and kept its super low and slim silhouette, which became one of the brand’s classics. Bearing that timeless silhouette, the Saucony Bullet Terry continues its heritage in the streets.

  • The Saucony Bullet Terry sneaker has an EVA midsole for better underfoot cushioning and shock absorption.
