Though Saucony may not be the biggest name when it comes to spikes, there’s no denying that their track & field offerings have been impressive as of late. Their most recent distance spikes, the Endorphin MD3 and the LD3, were freakishly light, barely registering on our scales and serving as very strong contenders against the likes of Nike’s Victory and Matumbo models.
This year, it seems that Saucony has accomplished the impossible, making their Endorphin spikes even lighter and faster than before. Mind = Blown! In all seriousness though, expect this update to bring minor changes, improving upon a couple of already excellent spikes.
What To Watch For
- Reduced Overlays: The MD4 and LD4 will feature fewer overlays around the rear and medial side of the shoe while strategically placing remaining overlays to maintain a secure fit.
- Carryover Platform: Not messing with a good thing, the MD4 and LD4 will feature the same 6-pin and 4-pin spike plate as their respective predecessors.
- Featherweight Construction: According to Saucony, the MD4 is expected to come in at 3.2 oz for a Men’s 9 and 2.8 oz for a Women’s 8, while the LD4 is listed at 2.8 oz (Men’s 9) and 2.4 oz (Women’s 8).
