Since its release in 2015, the Saucony Breakthru has been known as a versatile, no-nonsense running shoe. Its reliable cushioning makes it ideal for daily training, and its lighter weight design makes it a suitable option for tempo days. The 3rd version of the Breakthru gets a complete redesign with several upgrades that will make the shoe a tremendous value.
One of the most surprising updates seen in the Breakthru 3 is the use of a full length Everun Topsole. This update should give the shoe a more responsive feel while also creating more consistent cushioning. While the Everun will replace the PowerGrid foam seen in previous versions, the shoe will continue to utilize SSL EVA for lightweight cushioning.
For an enhanced fit, the Breakthru 3 utilizes a new engineered mesh design for a softer, seamless approach. This new material works with an added internal midfoot strap to help create a snug, midfoot lockdown. Along with a completely redesigned outsole configuration that utilizes tri flex technology, we expect the Breakthru 3 to offer a more flexible ride than previous versions.
