SummaryThe Freedom 3 is a lightweight running shoe, redesigned and revamped from the Freedom 2. Key updates in the Freedom 3 include new upper pattern, and a lighter weight and more responsive foam sole. The Freedom 3 combines many of Saucony's new technologies to give an all around good performer and versatile running shoe.
The thin, soft mesh knit upper, is light and breathable, although lacks some support in the midfoot. The new upper design features a reinforced pattern stitching to help with some stability, and a lightly padded tongue attached to upper for sock like fit.
The midsole is made from PWRRun+ foam which is bouncy and lighter than in previous versions and gives a soft ride, but good energy return. This foam is made from TPU beads, combined to preserve energy for good return from your footstrike, and is similar to Adidas' Boost technology.
The Freedom 3 outsole is a Tri Flex Crystal Rubber to maintain durability and versatility, and makes it a very flexible shoe in the hand.
