Saucony Grid Excursion TR11 GTX

The SAUCONY GRID EXCURSION TR11 GTX finds a genuine performance shoe making waves on the streets, thanks largely to smart styling and a comfortable midsole that looks as good as it feels. The trails and hills are all well and good, but would the shoe perform as it should in the concrete environment? We took the TR11 GTX out for a test run to see if it had what it takes to survive on the gritty streets of Hoxton…

As an outdoor-focused design, it feels entirely appropriate for the TR11 GTX to be utilising the advanced fabrications of GORE-TEX® across the uppers. Waterproofing is as valid on the concrete as it is in the hills, so this is one huge plus point for the TR11 in its urban role. As the successor to the Excursion TR10, the TR11 is a true progression in terms of both design and technology. The GRID cushioning and XT-600 rubber outsole are largely the same, but the midsole is where things get interesting. There’s more of the much-liked IMEVA cushioning, which has been distributed across the entire length of the shoe, making the TR11 feel good on the foot from dawn to dusk. High impact steps and quick movements are no problem when the support is this reliable. Looking back to the upper section, the cleverly thought-out ventilation system circulates air very efficiently, making for a refreshing experience on those warmer days. In fact, the TR11 is a strong choice for summer weather thanks to the lightweight mesh that can handle those unexpected summer showers with ease.

Tech and performance are all well and good, but it means little to the man on the street if it doesn’t have the aesthetics to match. Luckily, there are no issues here whatsoever: the TR11 in this bold blue and grey colourway looks incredibly slick and has proven to be a head-turning piece of footwear both in and out of the office. If you’re looking for something a little more eclectic this summer, then we can’t recommend the TR11 GTX highly enough.
