Summary

The Saucony Omni Grid Walker is a popular walking shoe because is offers good arch support, is comfortable, and has a decent amount of cushioning. You can insert your own orthotics or leave in the manufacturers. Either way, the shoe is designed to help alleviate joint pain for those who overpronate. Although the Omni Grid Walker is a bit on the heavier side, it comes in different widths and has a roomy toe box.

The midsole of the Omni Grid Walker has the GRID cassette in the heel. This allows you more control when your heel hits the ground. Also in the midsole is HRC and SRC for cushioning. The HRC runs the full length of the shoe and is made of EVA foam and rubber. This absorbs shock and provides a responsive feedback. The SRC is made of upgraded foam and is 15 percent more resilient when it comes to cushioning the heel. You will notice the asymmetrical sole on this, which is designed to help the natural biomechanics of your feet.

On the outsole, there is XT-900 carbon rubber for traction and durability. Walk Trac lines run from the midfoot to the forefoot, which helps you move through your gait. The flex grooves on the bottom of the forefoot of the outsole improve flexibility.

The upper is made of full-grain leather to provide structure and add comfort. In addition, there are leather overlays for additional support. The traditional lace-up closure allows for an adjustable fit and the padded tongue offers additional comfort.

Who is it for?

The Saucony Omni Grid Walker are for those overpronate or who need extra stability while walking. These are specifically designed for walking, so you can expect a good amount of cushioning and support.
