Saucony Endorphin PRO – $249.95
~ETA – June 1, 2020
With the likes of Saucony pros Jared Ward (6th place Rio Olympics Marathon), Parker Stinson, and Canada’s own Krista Duchene putting the new Endorphin series through its paces in testing you can be sure these are some FAST shoes. The new PeBa-based PWRRUN-PB midsole foam is super bouncy to maximize energy return/efficiency. The geometry of the moderately rocker-ed midsole and carbon fiber plate helps to roll you forward as quickly as possible. Designed for the marathon, this lightweight, lively shoe is sure to be a fun ride, even for running your fastest 5km.
Weight: Men’s 7.5oz | Women’s 6.3oz
Saucony Endorphin SPEED – $199.95
~ETA – July 1, 2020
See above. The Endorphin Speed is the more versatile cousin of the Endorphin Pro. Same foam, same feel, so what’s the difference? This shoe swaps out the carbon fiber plate for a TPU variant (HINT: price drop) and has a more structured and supportive upper. For some people this will be a more training oriented shoe better equipped to deal with daily wear and tear. Not sure what all the hype about these carbon-plated, super foamed racing shoes is? This might be the best place to start.
Weight: Men’s 8oz | Women’s 6.8oz
