2016 Spring Shoe Review: Saucony Hurricane ISO 2 $160

05/03/2016 - 12:47

saucony_hurricane-16.jpgThe Hurricane has undergone more change in two generations than it has in most of the previous 16 combined. It starts with an update to the ISO fit saddle (aptly named ISO 2). Minimesh and fused overlays complete the forefoot, and an external thermoplastic heel counter secures the foot over the sole. But it’s in the midsole where the magic begins.

A new compound that Saucony calls Everun puts a layer of blown TPU foam near the foot and a more resilient foam in the midsole. The compound’s flexibility allows better flexion with the foot’s motion and has a great feel to it. The outersole is a newly designed chevron pattern that adapts to a variety of angles, eliminating much of the stiffness experienced in many motion-controlling shoe designs. The stable ride, cushioning, and fit combine to earn the Hurricane ISO 2 our award for Best Renovation.
Testers: “I've been impressed with the Hurricane for years. This round is like a whole other level: comfy, durable, great fit. Now I’m really impressed.”
