There’s a reason the Saucony brand has become the darling of the international running scene: when the company introduces a new style, no effort is spared to make certain it’s…
As a runner who relocated from Boston at the end of 2012, I knew I wouldn’t have enough vacation saved to get back and run Boston 4 months later. I…
I don’t like getting into fights with my closest male cousin, but I needed a tester to run around in a pair of Saucony Kinvara 7 and since he wears…
Saucony has upped its game with its spring 2016 collection of running shoes that feature signature EVERUN technology for an amazing cushioning experience.
What kind of runner are you? Do you eagerly look forward to excelling and pushing your limits with each training, or do you run to unwind, taking your time with no objective in mind? Or do you just plough through your run to hit your workout quota?
Raise your hand if you excelled at Math, but you’re having a hard time keeping up with the Saucony Ride family of running shoes! You’re not alone. Every time we turn around, the company debuts an “improved” Ride—though proof is found in the wearer who may not be as eager for a new version because she’s perfectly content with the pair she owns. When the Saucony Ride 8 debuted recently, we felt compelled to take into consideration this model’s dynasty to answer the question of whether an already-fab shoe can be improved upon or whether mistakes made with the Saucony Ride 7 continue to plague the brand.
Do women complain more than men? That depends upon who the women are, of course, but when it comes to making purchases, social research indicates that women tend to be more vocal about the quality of products they buy, perhaps because they shop more than men. We know what you’re thinking: this is a generality and maybe even a stereotype, but while researching the recent introduction of both the men’s and women’s Saucony Ride 8 running shoe, we discovered that women were more critical, verbose and opinionated about the women’s version than the guys, so you can draw your own conclusions as you evaluate the opinions of the testosterone crowd!
Not everybody throws a party when running shoes are introduced to the retail market—but when a shoe is as eagerly anticipated as the latest version of the Saucony Ride 8, someone could start popping champagne corks.
As a dedicated runner, I know that having a proper-fitting, well-cushioned pair of shoes is a must to prevent injuries and continue to motivate me to keep running. The Saucony company (originally A.R. Hyde and Sons) has a rich history of manufacturing performance shoes for countless athletes – the company also manufactured shoes for soldiers in World War II. Since then, Saucony has become renowned for their high-quality running shoes worn by everyone from the casual runner to the elite marathoner.
As the latest version in the revamped Triumph line of men’s running shoes, Saucony Shoes ISO-Triumph is highly cushioned and ideal for high mileage runners who log long hours out on the roads. Immediately out of the box, the shoe felt extremely light for such a highly-cushioned product. The aesthetic and colours were extremely pleasing on the eye. The upper area of the shoe is seamless, allowing me to run without socks, if I were so inclined. From the second I put them on, I had high hopes for this shoe—they felt as cushioned as advertised and provided an unparallelled fit.
