I have been wearing Saucony Grid type A4 for a couple of years- I dont seem to be able to get these now(in my size)
am i being totally dumb but I noticed they now have type A5- so do i assume that the A5 are just replacing the A4 in the same way that the nike triax i wear that started as 12 are now up to 16?? thanks

Basically yes it's the same. A few minor changes (stretchier upper, marginally lighter) but that's it.

Same heel drop (4mm) so should feel very much like the same shoe.

Link to short video on the A5 on Saucony website - scroll down a little and it's on the right hand side.

I wore a hole in my A5's before 500 miles. Wasn't impressed.

Although, I wore the exact same hole in my A4's after 1200

Got something to say?
