On first glance, you may be wondering why we’re showing you what seems like pictures of the current Saucony Cortana and saying it’s a new shoe. But look closer and you’ll see a carefully re-crafted upper that shaves over an ounce off the original Cortana, designed to retain a familiar fit and feel.
What to Watch For
- Lighter Weight: The Cortana 2 loses over an ounce in both Men’s and Women’s models, thanks to the materials used in the new upper. Weights are estimated at just 9.8 oz (Men’s size 9) and 8.6 oz (Women’s size 8).
- New Upper Design: The basic design elements of the original Cortana – open mesh, a structured heel, and a fade-out color scheme – are refined in this update.
- Unchanged Platform: The midsole/outsole of the original Cortana carries over in the update to the Cortana 2. That means you still get a resilient ride along with a good amount of cushioning for higher-mileage runs.
