Among the most well-known athletic footwear brands is Saucony (pronounced Sock-a-knee). The brand offers running shoes, lifestyle sneakers, and apparel. For many years, running enthusiasts have relied on Saucony for high-quality products. Saucony has built a reputation for technological advancements and innovation as one of the leading brands in the running industry.
They provide optimal cushioning, performance, and comfort, no matter what style of running you prefer, or what terrain you run on. EVERUN cushioning technology in the midsoles is just one of the innovative features included in its footwear.
These innovations will enhance running experiences, reduce impacts, and maximise energy returns as a result of their advanced stability systems.
Saucony's EVERUN cushioning system utilises a type of technology which places the cushioning closer to your foot than before. Normally, your foot would touch the sockliner, which sits on the strobel board, which lays on top of the midsole and attaches the upper to it. With EVERUN, Saucony places a 3mm layer on top of the sole, creating the effect of a memory foam mattress.
EVERUN also lasts three times longer than common EVA materials, and isn't temperature-sensitive, meaning it doesn't get harder in the cold or softer in the heat.
With the inclusion of their latest technology ISOKNIT, created in 2019, Saucony sneakers make you feel like you have a sock on. The revolutionary fit system morphs to the foot, allowing you to move more freely by adapting to your foot shape and movements.
