Summary

The Saucony Echelon 7 features a wide base for stability, comfortable to wear, and is designed to fit orthotics. They are heavier when compared to other shoes, but that is because they are designed for those who underpronate. These shoes offer a good amount of support and have no break in period so you can take them on a run right away.

In the midfoot, you will find FORMFIT and EVERUN technology. FORMFIT is a contoured footbed do distribute energy evenly across the midsole. This also helps you keep your balance when your feet hit the ground. EVERUN technology is designed to enhance cushioning. It offers a smooth landing and a responsive run.

The upper of the Echelon 7 is made of engineered mesh so the air flows in and out to keep your feet comfortable. The shoe offers external heel support for a secure fit and locks the heel in place. Laces on the shoe are flat, which helps to reduce the chances of irritation.

On the outsole, you will find TRI-FLEX technology which offers flexibility and protection. This will disperse shock across the surface of the shoe for less of a force on impact. IBR+ in the forefoot provides soft rubber cushioning and a responsive toe-off. The TRI-FLEX in the outsole offers full ground contact with flex grooves to allow your feet to flex naturally. XT-900 rubber is located in the heel, which offers traction while running and protects against wear and tear.
