The Saucony Cortana is a shoe that sits in its own class, blending a low profile, 4mm offset design with premium cushioning and posh features. For its third iteration, the Cortana undergoes a top-down redesign, featuring both a new upper and tooling, but the core concepts behind the shoe remain. Expect the Cortana 3 to offer a lightweight and cushioned ride that will keep your feet happy during high mileage training yet can easily keep up when picking up the pace.
What to Watch For
- Forefoot Overlays: FlexFilm has been added to the forefoot, providing a secure fit while maintaining low weight and a seamless interior.
- Increased Heel Support: A new Support Frame around the heel collar helps keep your foot locked in place.
- Slight Weight Decrease: Both the Men’s and Women’s models are expected to lose a few ticks off the scale, with claimed weights of 9.5 oz (Men’s 9) and 8.4 oz (Women’s 8).
