The light mesh upper coupled with the everun midsole makes this shoe one of the most comfortable shoes running shoes I have used so far. Everrun is marketed to give you an 83% energy return. The mesh upper was very comfortable, and the heel cup was somewhat spongy. Where overlays are present, the placement of them helped with the aesthetics of the shoe. They also prevent unintentional shoe-removals. The Everrun responded well to the speed, however, due to the flexible design, it was not my personal favorite for speed work. Hey, thanks for the comment and questions.
The rubber soles did hold up and show minimal wear and still have decent grip. The forefoot was a little bit wide. A removable sockliner adds cushioning together with the Everun topsole. The padding on top of the tongue combined with the flat laces ensured further help with the distribution of lading pressure. This shoe will last much longer than other shoes and is extremely versatile. This allows the midsole to compress more on the lateral side than the medial side preventing a little bit of pronation.
The semi-curved shape of this product mimics the curve of the human foot. In simple terms, the heel support frame does nothing to support the heel. This shoe also utilizes the same Everun topsole seen in several of the daily training models which helps to provide a continuously cushioned feel throughout the run. However, I noticed that the crystallized rubber did not provide adequate grip during runs in wet conditions. The shoe provides enough support and cushioning for longer runs yet has the ability to stay responsive. The Midsole comprises a full-length Everun foam complimented by a 2mm Everun topsole with a 4 mm heel to toe drop. There is no plastic board underneath the sock liner, which lets your foot sink into the midsole.
But, with each passing mile, my love for them would diminish. That's how it is in life. I found that landing on the forefoot was firm but bouncy and landing towards the heel was towards the softer side. Most shoes should feel good under 100 miles. Laces The laces are good flat laces that distribute the pressure on the top of the foot well. They look fast yet comfortable, and there are wide varieties of colors available.
With ludicrous vehicle combat, super-powered first-person mayhem, and an open world full of emergent madness, you will tear across an unforgiving wasteland battling sadistic gangs to find the tools and tech needed to crush the oppressive rule of The Authority once and for all. There is no rock plate. While the information presented in this review is intended to help you better understand the differences between running shoes, we shall not be held liable for any purchasing decisions you make based on this information. Pronation is the inward rolling of the ankle through the gait cycle. I understand the reasoning behind the support frame the shoe is called the Freedom for a reason but should have discarded the frame from the start. It is much less durable and less comfortable. In three hundred miles in this shoe, it feels like the shoe is brand new.
The Launch is a better option for heel strikers looking for a more minimal daily trainer with racing potential. Besides being a little heavier than the Guide 10, the updates to this shoe make it worthwhile to try. The everrun midsole has yet to disappoint me. Upper's Breathability The shoe has a very thin, perforated upper. I felt that the protection the midsole and outsole gave was inadequate for my sensitive shins on the longer miles. I exercise on the tread mill 3-4 times a week and once I switched shoes my discomfort was gone.
More padding around the ankles, the heel to toe ratio was too much, hurt my hips.

I have a very mild over-pronation that increases slightly with distance. Flexibility This gives the experience of running in a shoe that has a drop of even less than 4 millimeters. I knew the weight of the shoe was similar to the Saucony Guide 10, but when I put the shoe on the 10. The launch is stiffer than the Freedom. Great shoes and worth the investment.
I also noticed the low drop of the shoe, something that felt a little too low for me. I believe that this racer will be one of the most responsive yet cushioned racer. It was obvious immediately that Saucony invested in making a comfortable and durable shoe when I first laced them up. The Launch has a higher stack height, denser cushioning and a 10mm drop. People were shocked that it gave such a stiff ride and an uncomfortably narrow in-shoe experience. I noticed that the comfortable spongy heel cup and upper that I loved so much would soak and lock-in sweat. Overall, the upper wins a place in my books as one of the best fitting and most comfortable uppers in lightweight trainers.
Fit The shoe does fit me quite well but finding the correct size may be a bit of a problem for some people due to the way the shoe is like. Instead of using separate layers of overlays, this one has the printed variety. The crystallized rubber came in a bright yellow color. There are slightly larger differences in flexibility to be noted for the men's versions of the running shoes. You decide when you've had enough.
