Saucony Technical

Founded way back in 1898, Saucony is the oldest running shoe brand. Through a commitment to innovation, design and boundary pushing products they aim to empower runners with every stride, on every run and in every community.

FORMFIT TECHNOLOGY;

Formfit provides comfort beyond just an underfoot cradle, it provides better adaptability to your foot from every touchpoint. The soft engineered mesh upper, 3D printed overlays, padded tongue and contoured heel collar combine to create a ‘made for me’ feel. The result is comfort that disappears on foot, allowing for a ‘distraction free’ fit.

The Ride 15, Guide 15 and Peregrine 12 now feature a sock liner made from 7mm of PWRRUN+ foam. This means that the runner has Saucony’s plushest foam directly under their foot.

CUSHIONING TECHNOLOGY;

PWRRUN - an EVA-based foam that provides springy energy return and durability. This foam provides the best balance of feel-good cushioning and fluid guidance through the gait cycle. The Ride 15 and Guide 15 use a new blend of PWRRUN which is plusher and lighter than previous versions.

PWRRUN+ – a beaded Poly Urethane based foam used in Saucony’s top end cushioned shoes due to it’s soft and luxurious underfoot feel. The new PWRRUN+ is also 28% lighter than previous versions.       

PWRRUNPB – a ‘PEBA’ based superfoam that is remarkably bouncy, yet half the weight and more durable than standard EVA foam. With an energy return of 88% PWRRUNPB is Saucony’s lightest and most responsive cushioning ever, helping you reach those personal bests on race day and every day.

STRUCTURE AND STABILITY;

For those runners who over pronate, but perhaps by varying degrees, Saucony provide shoes with STRUCTURED CUSHIONING or STABILITY.

Structured cushioning shoes feature a TPU guidance frame, a more dense piece of material embedded beneath a layer of midsole foam to give medial support and reduce forces around the joints of the ankle and foot, without reducing cushioning. The shape and size of this Guidance Frame varies between models, so that runners can achieve the correct amount of support they require. An example of a structured cushioning shoe is the Guide 15, which uses a HOLLOW–TECH support system to reduce weight whilst maintaining stability.

Stability shoes have a dual density medial post in place. This offers a more significant amount of motion control as the denser EVA foam extends throughout the arch and underneath the heel. Saucony’s most stable shoe, the Omni 20, uses this traditional method of providing stability in the heel and midfoot.

THE ENDORPHIN COLLECTION;

These shoes incorporate the revolutionary ‘SPEED ROLL’ technology, in which the geometry of the shoe rolls you onto your toes to propel you forwards with the feeling of continuous momentum. The Endorphin Collection combines elevated cushioning and a stiff forefoot, which together result in an instantly responsive ride, so that you can run faster, not harder.

The ‘Race Day’ Endorphin Pro combines bouncy PWRRUNPB foam with a signature S-shaped carbon fibre plate for explosive power transfer.

The ‘Speed Day’ Endorphin Speed combines bouncy PWRRUNPB foam with a responsive nylon plate for versatile power transfer.

The ‘Every Day’ Endorphin Shift combines a high stack of cushioned PWRRUN foam with Formfit for that personalised ‘locked in’ fit, giving a more supportive ride that still has a propulsive feel.

TRAIL

PWRTRAC rubber - the rubber used to form the outsole of the Peregrine and the Canyon. It is three times grippier than the rubber used in our road shoes, so that you can run on wet and slippery ground with confidence.

Rock guard – the Peregrine and Canyon also feature a nylon weave rock guard which runs from the toes to the midfoot to protect from injury, whilst still being flexible enough to allow the shoe to move naturally with the foot. In the Peregrine 12 the rock guard has been redesigned to have more flex and to shed water more easily than previous versions.
