Saucony Endorphin Speed — Black/GoldProduct Description
This is Saucony’s premier most cushioned shoe built for long aerobic runs but so light it can be used for short, faster temp type runs. It contains the new PWRRUN PB foam midsole which is very responsive and bouncy. It also incorporates a TPU plate from heel to toe, which is called SPEEDROLL, and creates a lively rolling or propulsive feeling underfoot. Speed is very light weighing in at 7.8 oz for men and 6.8 oz for women. It comes with an 8 mm drop and is a neutral, semi-curved training shoe.
Running Niche Experience Speed fits true to size. It fits snug, like a racing flat but the toe box roundness and volume is like that of a training shoe. The upper is very lightweight and breathable. The collar surrounding the achilles is soft and comfortable. The heel counter fits snugly as well and your arch feels well supported. This is an outstanding, workhorse tempo run shoe as well as it can be used on long aerobic runs. A great blend of some racing flat features with a training shoe feel. The ride bouncy and you can feel the PWRRUN PB foam working with the TPU plate to provide that propulsion sensation. Saucony has a real winner here in the Speed. Stack height is 35.5 in the heel and 27.5 in the forefoot.
