For the first time in history, the reliable Saucony Ride everyday road running shoe gets updated with an ISOFIT upper and it’s about time! In the past, ISOFIT has been reserved for the higher price point Saucony models. However, as new technologies are released, older technologies tend to trickle down into the more affordable models. The new Ride ISO continues to provide reliable and springy cushioning but now with a more comfortable and stable ride.
Featuring a bouncy EVERUN top sole and a durable PWRFoam midsole, the Saucony Ride ISO offers a ride with a balance of cushioning and responsiveness. Brand new to the Ride ISO is the addition of a contoured midsole which provides a more stable ride due to your foot sitting inside rather than on top of the midsole. The effect is similar to bumpers on a bowling alley, wherein the foot roles to one side or the other it bumps into the contoured rail and bounces back toward the middle of the platform.
While the outsole is slightly tweaked, the concept and materials are essentially the same. Saucony continued to use carbon rubber in the heel for added durability with a flexible blown rubber in the forefoot to enhance cushioning and responsiveness. To provide a smooth transition from heel to toe, the outsole features a Tri-Flex design in the forefoot that further encourages flexibility for a strong toe-off.
One of the most exciting upgrades to the new Ride is the addition of the sock-like ISOFIT upper that adapts to a variety of foot shapes while reducing restriction throughout the transition from heel to toe. To make sure your foot stays cool and dry, the Ride ISO was finished off with lightweight and breathable engineered mesh in the forefoot.
