Best Saucony shoes for Men who land on the middle of their foot

You'll rarely see an ad for Saucony, which is one of the best selling running shoe brands in the world. But the Boston-based running company, which has been around since 1898, has a well-earned reputation for quality and a very loyal following. From lightweight shoes like the Kinvara to heavily cushioned shoes like the Triumph ISO, Saucony has won numerous awards and today is the number three running shoe brand sold in run specialty stores.

From Chi-Running to natural running, many run coaches have been touting the benefit of midfoot running over the past decade. Midfoot running means landing on the center of your foot--not the front (forefoot) or back (heel). Many advocates say this is the natural way to run, and the way humans would be running if our stride wasn't corrupted by hard pavement and clunky shoes. However, because not all running shoes tailor to midfoot runners, people who land in the middle of their foot have to find the right shoe meant for this type of stride.
