Saucony has a line called the SAUCONY ORIGINAL SHOES. This category will remind you of the shoes your crazy uncle used to run his first marathon. I tested the SAUCONY JAZZ ORIGINAL. With a totally classic look these shoes are ideal for any casual outing. This shoe is comfortable for walking and you can definitely run in it. I walked the Outdoor Retailer show in this shoe for 3 days with no problems. With a classic tread and thick sole you will feel transported to a time when shoes were thicker and bulkier. This shoe is not built to ventilate and run through the desert with the lightest material. This shoe is a full shoe with a thick tongue and a thick sole. This is a great city living shoe. The SAUCONY JAZZ ORIGINAL comes with black and white broad laces. The other color variations provide different lace colors so you can choose to be bold or just blend. This is the ideal active lifestyle shoe.
