As you may or may not know, the Saucony Freedom ISO is pretty much my favorite shoe of all time. I’ve now run around one hundred miles in them, but they feel just as good as the very first time I put them on. Every step feels well cushioned and supported.I enjoy wearing the Freedoms for speedwork, long runs, and recovery runs (so I enjoy wearing them for literally any run that I do).
They’re light enough that I feel like I can run fast, but have enough cushion under them that my feet don’t hurt or ache after 20 miles. An added bonus is that I once tried that crystalized rubber out on roads that were covered in ice (I maybe don’t recommend that, it was actually pretty scary) and didn’t fall ONCE. If you’ve ever seen me try to avoid walking into large objects in the store, you know that not falling was not a result of my balance, agility, or coordination. It had to have been the shoes.
