Best Saucony shoes for Men with average builds

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.

Having an average build has its advantages: you can fit in most clothes, fly most airplanes, and ride most roller coasters. Running shoes are no different. Some shoes are meant for lighter runners; some for heavier runners. Average build runners can fit in the large bell shape curve in between. But just like it's important to understand your build, it's also important to understand what shoe you need. That's why the following sneakers are meant for runners who are neither heavy nor skinny.
