Saucony: Which model of running shoes to choose?
The history of Saucony running shoes
Born in Pennsylvania along the Saucony Creek, the Saucony brand began by producing shoes for children and adults.
It was only in 1968, after a takeover, that the company began to produce running shoes.
The brand became very popular to the general public in the 1980s, thanks in particular to its successes on the New York and Boston marathons. Technical improvements and R&D investments are bearing fruit and the American brand is present on the podiums again and again.
What makes Saucony shoes so special?
PWRRUN is a PeBa-based super foam. It will give you a excellent comfort and energy return.
Speedroll technology propels you forward creating the impression of continuous momentum.
This dynamic adjustment system adapts to the shape and movement of the foot. It therefore offers a custom fit.
The Saucony road collection
Thanks to its carbon plate, the Endorphin pro is surely the model in the Saucony range that will provide you with the most propulsion in the forefoot. Its carbon plate coupled with the PWRRUN PB process allows you to go for kilometers and have a maximum return of energy. Ideal for regular and experienced runners, this pair is designed for competition, especially for half-marathon to marathon distances.
The Endorphin Speed
The Endorphin speed is one of the most versatile running shoes in the range. The carbon plate is very dynamic and allows for an efficient and fluid stride. Ideal for regular and experienced runners, this pair is designed for speed training (short splits, VMA sessions) or for competition.
The Endorphin Shift
Unlike the Endorphin Speed and Endorphin Pro, the Endorphin shift does not have a carbon plate. Comfortable thanks to the PWRRUN cushioning, these shoes allow for better propulsion in the front and are more lively. They are ideal for regular runners looking for dynamism. For all daily training or long jogging these shoes will win your heart.

The Saucony Trail collection
Ideal for beginners to advanced runners, this pair is the flagship model of the Trail range. Stable, light and above all dynamic, these shoes will win over runners who enjoy short and long trails.
This pair of shoes is designed for beginners or regular runners. The Xodus from Saucony is a pair that will provide you with unparalleled comfort for your long mountain trails, once again thanks to the PWRRUN+ technology.
