Saucony’s Cortana 3 Sneak Peek

June 25th, 2013

We previewed the Saucony Cortana 3 awhile back, but we really like the info and super high rez images Saucony puts out for their upcoming product on their blog. Take a look at their sneak peek of the Cortana 3, with several cool schematics of the shoe’s key features. Here are the key updates in their words:

“So what’s changed from previous versions?  The Cortana 3 bottom unit features more ground-contact iBR+ (injection-blown rubber compound, providing a more plush and responsive ride than traditional rubber) than previous models.  The new upper is nearly stitchless, using FlexFilm™ to bond the shoe while providing seamless comfort and reducing the odds of developing hot spots to approximately zero.  We’ve also added a transparent external heel Support Frame™ to offer more structural integrity at the rear of the shoe, and we reduced the weight significantly, to just 9.5oz!”

Saucony Cortana 3 Sneak Peek

April 5th, 2013

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).
