Saucony Women’s ProGrid Integrity ST2 features a highly responsive and comfortable cushioning for a neutral walker. It has a comfortable and forgiving forefoot fit, constructed with stretch Zone™. This style features a leather upper that is full grain, HRC strobe board, sock liner, heel pro grid, molded midsole, and a blown outsole made of carbon rubber with non-marking Walk Track technology that provides traction as well as durability.
The shoe is quite appealing in terms of aesthetics, which goes hand in hand with the great performance that it offers. Some of it main features include;
Arch support. It has fantastic arch support which gives a nice balance to the foot while walking. Plantar fasciitis (see my shoe guide against heel pain) and many other common foot problems caused by incorrect balancing of arch support cannot be experienced with the shoes, making sure to cover the health of the user.
It has a high rebound compound for its cushioning. The HRC pads in the rear foot add cushioning to the area of heel strike, with support of the later stages of gait cycle as well.
The Walk TrackTM can’t go unmentioned. It is the outsole design of the shoe meant to support, promote and enhance a gait cycle through the insole and outsole that is all natural.
The shoe weight is 9.8 oz. This light weight makes it quite superior among the competing walking shoes. It adds on the comfort and allows the user to walk longer distances without any aches and pains.
The breathability of the shoe is however quite standard. The leather upper does not allow for maximum breathability which hinders prolonged usage of the shoe. The top lacing design, however, tries to make up for this.
Style and appearance of the shoe is quite trendy. It is offered in three colours, white, black and stone. The design covers all the functionality parameters without compromising its look. It is suitable for casual wear as well.
The price of the shoes is quite a bargain, in view of the quality of service that it offers. The price range is lower as compared to that of its competitors, yet offering more features. It is available in various online stores making it easy to acquire. One can also find it in shoe stores for those that are unsure of their fit size as they can try out a number of the shoes.
Saucony Women’s ProGrid Integrity ST2 are to say the least, one of the best products that one can get in the current market, when in search of walking shoes. The combination of comfort, appearance and durability among other features of the shoe renders it among the best and will definitely be a great purchase.
