Saucony today announced that the all-new Hurricane ISO 2 with EVERUN™ has been named “Editor's Choice” in the Runner's World 2016 Spring Shoe Guide (March 2016 issue, on newsstands February 2). The Hurricane ISO 2, featuring Saucony’s EVERUN™ continuous cushioning technology, received the highest marks of the shoes reviewed by the Runner’s World shoe lab, its wear-testers and editors for the 2016 Spring Shoe Guide to capture the prestigious award.
This is the second Runner’s World award for the brand’s flagship supportive running shoe: The inaugural Hurricane ISO was named “Best Update” in the Runner's World 2015 Summer Shoe Guide.
“The newest version of the Hurricane combines all of Saucony’s technologies to create a ride that is comfy, cushioned, responsive, and stable,” said the Runner’s World review of the shoe. Testers’ highest praise was reserved for the fit and comfort of the well-padded, two-layer upper that hugs the heel and midfoot while providing plenty of room up front for your toes. New for this version are layers of EVERUN material in the midsole−where it cradles your foot as it sinks in and then bounces back as you push off. The new triangle-lugged outsole design improves the shoe’s flexibility, while firmer material under the inside of the heel and arch controls inward rolling.
“This is a fantastic accolade for one of the most legendary shoes we’ve ever built,” said Pat O'Malley, president of Saucony. “Winning another award from the Runner’s World editors for the Hurricane ISO speaks to the powerful momentum we continue to build, creating game-changing technology for the industry and most important for runners everywhere. The Hurricane ISO 2 is a clear result of the passion, hard work and collaboration between the whole Saucony team; we are extremely proud of this prestigious recognition.
Hurricane ISO 2:
The new Hurricane ISO 2, the brand’s leading supportive trainer, now features a full-length EVERUN Topsole and EVERUN Landing Zone, TRI-FLEX outsole and ISOFIT upper. A Dual Density medial post provides unwavering support without sacrificing flexibility or light weight.
EVERUN’s patent-pending Topsole construction process positions a 3mm layer of Saucony’s revolutionary EVERUN foam material closer to the foot, directly under the sockliner, instead of embedding it in the midsole below a layer of rigid cement. This construction process distributes propulsion force over more area, reducing local peak pressures while delivering a dramatically more lively and responsive ride.
The EVERUN Landing Zone and heel insert provide remarkable impact protection, maintaining cushioning properties three times longer than standard EVAs while returning 83% of the energy absorbed, according to research in the Saucony Human Performance and Innovation Lab.
The Hurricane ISO 2 is available at select specialty running retailers like Fleet Feet Sports Madison & Sun Prairie or online.
