Reviewers love the Saucony Grid Cohesion NX, especially considering that it is almost a third of the price of top-end running shoes. The Grid Cohesion NX is a neutral cushioning shoe meant for those with high arches whose feet don't naturally roll inwards enough to absorb the impact of running. The Grid Cohesion NX attracts numerous 5-star reviews from consumers who find it comfortable, with a spacious -- but not too roomy -- forefoot fit that accommodates most feet; it comes in two widths for both men and women. Reviewers also like its good traction, generous heel cushioning and breathable mesh upper. Those who are not happy with the Grid Cohesion NX find the arch support lacking and complain that the heel cushioning is too hard. The best neutral-cushioning shoe this year is the Brooks Glycerin 8, but this shoe costs much more.
The best reviews on the Saucony Grid Cohesion NX come from users posting to Zappos.com, Amazon.com and other sites that allow users to comment. Interestingly, we found comments not only from runners, but also from those using these shoes for a variety of other fitness activities from walking to aerobics and gym workouts. We found few editorial reviews of the Saucony Grid Cohesion NX, mainly because the fitness and running magazines like to focus on the top-end running shoes that come with a higher price tag.
More than 150 owners review the women's version of the Saucony Grid Cohesion NX; some are runners, while others use this inexpensive shoe for walking. Several also use them for aerobics classes. Fit and comfort are high points in many reviews, but some say the cushioning wears out pretty quickly.

There aren't as many reviews here as there are at Zappos for the Grid Cohesion NX, but the 20 or so reviews are still worth reading. Cushioning, arch support and value are common compliments in reviews.
