Choose the Best Running Shoes Every Time
Saucony has been makin shoes since 1898, where they started in Pennsylvania, USA. They have been making running shoes since 1968 and has been making quality athletic footwear ever since. Some notable shoes in the Saucony lineup are the Saucony ProGrid Omni 8 that won Editor’s Choice from Runners World in Summer 2009, and the Saucony ProGrid Jazz 12 that was given a Best Buy from Runners World in Fall 2009.
The Saucony Omni 12 is one big, bad, surprisingly light stability running shoe. It’s got the features, foam and efficiency to keep runners of all sizes happy. Runner’s World gave the Omni 12 its Editor’s Choice Award in September 2013 for those reasons and more. Retailing for $120, the Saucony Omni 12 is one of the best, most innovative shoes on the market for runners with average arches.
It’s amply cushioned, comfortable and very stable. The Saucony PowerGrid Hurricane 15 doesn’t have every single thing a medium-arched runner could possibly want — but it has the important things. Many runners were thrilled when previously the Hurricane 14 came out, weighing much less than its forerunner and including new features such as the Sauc-Fit system to help hold the midfoot and heel in place.
If you are looking for a light stability shoe, the Saucony ProGrid Guide 3 focuses on the essentials that make a running shoe work. Couple small updates for this year’s model including a little more forefoot cushioning and Saucony’s Hydrator technology sock liner. I would recommend the Saucony ProGrid Guide 3 for mild overpronators looking for a light stability shoe.
The Saucony ProGrid Hurricane line has always been known as a heavy duty stability running shoe, and the Saucony ProGrid Hurricane 12 is exactly that. This year’s model was updated with an expanded medial post that extends more into the rearfoot and also comes with a larger heel crash pad to better absorb all of the impacts that different runners with different running styles can have. I would recommend the Saucony Hurricane 12 for runners with moderate overpronation that need a Stability shoe on the higher end of the support spectrum.
Saucony ProGrid Omni 8 is a Stability running shoe that has a bit more support than the average Stability shoe, yet was updated this year to have softer cushioning than prior models. The Omni 8 was given the Editor’s Choice award in the Runners World Summer 2009 Shoe Guide.
