Saucony is coming up in 2016 with a lot of new shoes.
The biggest change is the introduction of their new “EVERUN” foam material and its use in the shoes. Let’s start with the new material.
According to Saucony, EVERUN is more responsive (83%) than their previous materials and its properties last 3 times as long.
In terms of its use, a layer of EVERUN is positioned not (only) in the midsole, but directly under the sockliner (see picture below). What this promises is to distribute the force over a wider area and closer to the foot.
Let’s look at the shoes that will feature EVERUN in Spring 2016.
Saucony Triumph ISO 2
The Triumph is Saucony’s premium cushioning offer – a good candidate for the new material. Available on 11/1, it will cost $150 and feature a 8mm drop, weighting in at 10.2 ounces.

The Peregrine is the trail cousin of the best-selling Kinvara. Available 1/1, it will weight 9.4 ounces. 4mm drop, $120 recommended retail price.
