The first thing we noticed with the Paramount 2s was the amount of support around the middle of the foot. Sadly, this was counteracted with the rigid ride underneath the heel, which we’ve never experienced with Saucony before.
The end result is a well-cushioned, flexible shoe up front that offers some decent support, coupled with a soft and breathable upper. But, for some, the harder ride under your heel will cause concern. While you ponder the above, consider the elevated feel the shoes provide: these are high-mileage machines that positively encourage you to get training.
If we’re being picky, perhaps the colour isn’t best suited to what the weather will probably dish out to Britain this winter, but in reality that’s a marginal worry.
