Saucony Omni 20: Who and what is it for?

The Omni 20 from Saucony is the brand's most stable motion control running shoe. This makes it a fitting choice for those who suffer from flat feet, overpronation (feet roll inward excessively), plantar fasciitis, and other foot conditions. 

It's a daily trainer that's designed for high-mileage runs. It's a tad heavy for tempo paces but is an excellent pick for recovery runs.
