Saucony Grid Type A3 — ($95)

2010 Summer Shoe Guide Homepage

There is a reason you’ll see some of the fleetest runners wearing this extremely light racing flat: It’s all about performance and nothing else. Then again, weighing in at a mere seven ounces, there isn’t room for much else. The neutral Type A3 is the quintessential racing flat. Its fit is foot-wrapping, its feel is low-profile and flexible, and its ride is all about high turnover. The toe box is a little wider than some of the other flat-like shoes tested, but the heel hold and minimalist mesh upper otherwise screams racing. saucony.com
