Best Saucony shoes for Men who prefer neutral support

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.

Neutral runners tend to have their arches ever so slightly collapse inward when they run. Their arches are neither flat nor high, but somewhere in between. They require neither stability nor much cushion. What these neutral runners do need, however, is a shoe designed for them. They key is a lack of medial support on neutral running shoes: with such support, neutral runners would be pushed too far outward, leading to injuries. Luckily, every major running brand makes (at least a few) neutral shoes, which can be used from the track to the trail.
