Best Saucony shoes for Men with lighter 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.

Being light can certainly help with running. Not only does it mean less weight to propel forward, it reduces the risk of injury and cuts down the pounding in your shoes. But not every running shoe is meant for light runners. Clunky shoes meant for bigger "clydesdale" runners aren't perfect for lighter runners, nor are shoes that run super wide. That's why it's so important to know what shoe type fits your body type.
