Saucony Grid Excursion TR 2
The Grid Excursion TR 2 has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best trail running shoes for 2023.
This was my first pair of Saucony shoes and I love them. The comfort and durability of these shoes make Nike and other major shoe manufactures seem like dollar store garbage. I am extremely rough on shoes and I have had these for 3 or so years and they are still going strong. Before I was buying shoes every 6 months but since I discovered this brands quality they are all I would even consider buying!
Break-in Period: comfortable from the start
Weight: 180 lbs
Price Paid: $50
I've been using these shoes for about seven months, and I love them. The most comfortable shoes I've ever worn. They fit my feet perfectly. I'm not sure why, but Nikes never feel right on my feet, while New Balance and Saucony do.
I run trails, and my main trail is pretty rugged, full of roots and uneven ground. These TR2 has great traction and cushioning. The only thing I wish it would have is a bit more protection in the middle of the heel. Sometimes I've stepped on small rocks that fit into the "hollow" of the heel and so weren't cushioned by the more rigid outer rim of the heel. A couple of times it was rather painful, though it never resulted in a bruise or anything serious.
I've definitely been planning to buy another pair when these wear out, but now I see that there is also the TR3, and I'll do some research to see how that model may differ.
Use: trail running
Break-in Period: seemed to need none
I am a nurse in the hospital doing 12-hour shifts. I was looking for a shoe to sometimes work in and take walks in. The shoe is lacking in the center, also it leans to the sides. Very uncomfortable. Only had 2 months, not satisfied.
- Leans to the sides uncomfortably
lLeans to the side, not enough support in the center of shoe.
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $69.99
This is my second pair of Saucony (Grid Excursion TR 2) and let me tell you that I have never worn a more comfortable pair of running shoes. Nothing comes even close!!!!!! There are so perfect I just cannot believe how great and nice they are. Ohh I bought them over 2 years and they look like new and I wear them all the time.
The problem is that I can not find them anywhere. They have the Grid Excursion TR 4 but I do not know if they are as comfortable as the TR 2. Do you know where I can buy the TR 2. Please helppppppppp!.
Price Paid: around $50
