Saucony Omni 12 Sneak Peek

Saucony Omni 12 Men's Shoe

Saucony is planning to shake things up in the maximum support running shoes category for Fall 2013. Updates to the Omni 12 will introduce a level of runability not typically seen in shoes that offer this much support. We already think the Saucony Omni 11 is a pretty polished shoe for the amount of support it provides, and we hope that this model connects with more runners who need a max support shoe.

What to Watch For

  • Upgraded Cushioning: As in several other Fall 2013 updates, Saucony has added PowerGrid tech to the Omni for increased cushioning and a smoother ride.
  • Bolder Colors: Available with some eye-catching color combos, the Omni 12 introduces some boldness to a maximum support category traditionally dominated by bland whites and grays.
  • Widths Available: The Omni 12 will be available in standard, wide and extra wide widths for men and narrow, standard, wide and extra wide widths for women to accommodate a variety of foot shapes.

    How does or will this shoe’s overall stability and weight compare to the Saucony Hurricane 15? Is it alot more stable along the medeial side?

  • Matt

    The weights of the shoes are very similar, with the Omni weighing a few tenths of an ounce less. Both shoes offer maximum pronation support. The big difference is in the type of cushioning technology. The Omni 12 will have a full-length Powergrid insert, while the Hurricane 15 has Powergrid integrated into the midsole foam for additional cushioning.

    Thanks, Matt. I’ll stick with the Hurricanes, since I do not really need a lot of ‘medial support’ and with my current Hurricane 14’s it honestly is hardly noticealble…

    My husband did a gait analysis and ended up loving the omni 12, he’s deployed right now so I’m trying to get him new running shoes to send him. We ended up with a substantial gift card to a sports store that only has the omni 11 right now. Would the 11 work or is there a big difference between the 2 shoes? Thanks!

  • Matt

    Thanks for the question. Saucony made very subtle changes to the Omni 12. More than likely, he’ll be happy in the Omni 11.
