    I think I’m in love. It’s pretty rare for me to put more than 50 miles on a single shoe in one month given the number of reviews that I’m working on at any given time, but since mid-August I’ve run almost exclusively Nike Air Max 270 Femme in two shoes: the adidas Gazelle and the Saucony Grid Type A5.
    I recently reviewed the adidas Gazelle, which is a truly awesome shoe, and next up is the A5, which I’ve managed to log 70+ miles in so far (including speedwork and several Nike Epic React Flyknit Donne 13 mile plus long runs). Simply put, the Grid Type A5 has exceeded my expectations in nearly every possible way and has earned a spot on my feet for my Fall A-race – the Smuttynose Half-Marathon on September 30.I did try out the previous iteration of the Saucony Grid Type line, and it was not a positive experience. The Grid Type A4 never fit me quite right, and I managed to injure myself running a marathon in them a few years back (peroneal tendonitis). Thus, I was skeptical of trying the A5 since the sole was the same and only the upper had been updated. However, since the fit of the upper Nike Air Max TN Donne was my main issue and the A5 is a relative bargain among running shoes these days, I ordered a pair to review. I’m glad I did!I initially ordered the A5 in my usual size 10, but the fit was clearly still not right. I debated sending them Adidas Alphabounce Femme back and giving up on the shoe, but opted to give them another try and ordered a half size up. What a difference a bit of space can make! The fit went from iffy to absolutely perfect, and the improvement over my experience with the A4 has been dramatic. I’ve come to the realization that my feet may have indeed changed shape as more and more I find myself opting for 10.5’s instead of my old standard size 10.The beauty of the Grid Type A5 is it’s simplicity. This is a no frills shoe, and that’s what I love about it. The upper is minimally structured and highly breathable, and for the most part Nike Air Max 90 Femme it’s suitable for sockless wear (more on this below). There is a small plastic heel counter, though it extends only about halfway up the heel and is not really noticeable when the shoe is on foot. Arch support is present, though again minimal Adidas Ultra Boost Damen and barely noticeable to me.In terms of fit, I’d say the A5 (half-size up) is comparable to the Saucony Kinvara 3 – not particularly wide, but fits my foot without any noticeable restriction. I’d say it’s not quite as roomy in the forefoot as the Mizuno Universe, but a bit more roomy than the New Balance RC5000 (and much wider through the midfoot compared to the Nike Air Max 90 Essential Femme RC5000). For some reason, and I can’t put my finger exactly on what, Saucony shoes seem to fit me really well, which might be why I’ve had such good experiences with many of them.I mentioned above that I’d return to the issue of Nike Air Max 97 Donne sockless wear, and here lies my one and only complaint about this shoe. I don’t like the pull-on-string on the back of the heel because when running sockless in them the knots that hold the strings in the holes in the upper rub against my skin Nike Air Max Classic BW Femme and cause hot-spots. Not a problem with socks on. I’d recommend they ditch the string and instead use a pull tab attached to the outside of the heel.
