Saucony Brand

There's no doubt Saucony (pronounced Sock-a-knee) is one of the most well-known athletic footwear brands. Among its products are running shoes, lifestyle sneakers, and apparel. Running enthusiasts have trusted it for many years for top-quality products that are performance-driven. As a leading brand in the running world, Saucony has gained an excellent reputation for technological advancements and innovation.
No matter what style of running you prefer, or what terrain you run on, their sneakers provide optimal cushioning, performance, and comfort. A number of innovative features are included in its footwear, including EVERUN cushioning in the midsoles.
Additionally, they feature a variety of advanced stability systems. As a result of these innovations, running experiences will be enhanced, impacts will be reduced, and energy returns will be maximised.


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. By placing a 3mm layer on top of the sole with EVERUN, Saucony creates the effect of a memory foam mattress.
Lasting three times longer than common EVA materials, EVERUN isn't temperature-sensitive, meaning it doesn't get harder in the cold or softer in the heat.
Their latest ISOKNIT, created in 2019, help Saucony sneakers make you feel like you have a sock on. By morphing to the fit due to its revolutionary fit system, it allows you to move more freely by adapting to your foot shape and movements.
