After seeing the vegan Saucony Jazz, Progrid Kinvara and now this trail-ready Progrid Razor, it’s safe to say that Saucony is doing a pretty good job of making sure that they have something for all walks of life.

The Progrid Razor is one of the more unique styles available for those looking for a trail shoe. The higher-than-normal cut combined with eVent bootie makes for a design that protects your feet from the elements, and not just dirt and debris, but water as well. With the ankle strap and zipper it may seem that the Progrid Razor might not breathe well, but the eVent fabric ensures that is not the case. As for cushioning, the heel Progrid and Respons-Tek technology absorbs impact and dissipates shock, and SRC Impact Zone and forefoot cushioning also help to ensure comfort. Though it may appear to be on the heavy side, the use of a Vibram outsole not only provides traction, but is extremely lightweight as well.
