morespikes.jpgWhen it comes to track and field, “fast” takes on a number of definitions. It can mean sprinting 100 meters in 10.70 seconds or covering 10,000 meters in a medal-winning 27:30.42. Ahead of the summer, Nike footwear designers tasked themselves with not only outfitting but also accelerating athletes across this entire gamut.

SauconyTypeA.jpgFor the past decade and through six updates, the Type A has epitomized Saucony racing. This version, while not entirely new, is a numerical reset. The upper sticks with yet another closed mesh, though it has a breathable, cross-hatched pattern that’s pretty supportive on its own.
