Video reviews and unboxing
- Dynamism and comfort for miles are the targets of the Saucony Ride ISO 2, a daily running shoe for both beginners and experienced athletes. This model has been updated from the original Ride ISO model to feature a form-fitting upper with a fabric-like stretchiness, as well as a foot-pad design that conforms to the curves of the arch.
- Fewer overlays adorn the façade, though they’re still the printed variant and equally robust as the ones designed for the previous version. The curve of the rear counter and the padded collar are elements that have been redesigned to hold the Achilles tendon securely.
The Saucony Ride ISO 2 was constructed using the standard measurements. Consumers are encouraged to use their typical sizing choices when getting a pair. However, it is also wise to try on the shoe first or learn more about what others say about the sizing scheme to achieve the desired in-shoe experience.
When it comes to width, the available options are D – Medium and 2E – Wide for men, and B – Medium and D – Wide for women. The variants are for those who have broad foot dimensions or those who desire some extra space in the foot-compartment.
The semi-curved shape of this shoe adheres to the natural curvature of the human foot.
The outsole unit of the Saucony Ride ISO 2 is made up of Crystal Rubber, a malleable yet traction-ready compound that is ready to dole out surface control and precise movements on the surfaces. This external layer is also meant to shield the midsole foam from the debilitating effects of ground contact and continued use.
The TRI-FLEX construction entails a set of zigzagging flex grooves that render the cushioning system flexible. The resulting bending capacity permits the muscles and tendons of the foot to move naturally as it goes through the gait cycle.
The primary cushioning unit is composed of the PWRFOAM, a shock-absorbing piece that runs the entire length of the Saucony Ride ISO 2. This relatively thick feature is also tasked with helping the foot as it transitions through the gait cycle.
EVERRUN™ is a layer of cushioning that is placed on top of the PWRFOAM. This fragment of the midsole was made to be long-lasting and vital to the feeling of comfort.
A removable insole is added to provide extra support to the pad of the foot. This add-on has curved sides that mimic the outline of the foot. Such a design cups the curves and the arch, thereby steadying the runner and giving attention to spots that aren’t usually noticed.
The amalgamation of the three levels of cushioning is coined as the FORMFIT.
A double jacquard mesh is used for the Saucony Ride ISO 2. This multi-layered mesh aims to hug the foot securely without limiting the in-shoe experience. It has a stretchy structure and a seamless configuration which allow the foot to move well and be free of irritants.
ISOFIT is a system of printed overlays and midfoot-encompassing panels that help to lock the foot in place. These accoutrements on the upper unit are also constructed to reinforce the form of the façade, keeping it upright and away from sagging. This technology has been a vital aspect of many Saucony offerings like the famous Hurricane ISO line.
The padded tongue and collar have the job of cushioning the Achilles tendon, the ankles, and the bridge of the foot. These parts of the upper are also designed to avert in-shoe wobbling and movement deviation.
The woven lining of the collar offers a soft feel that staves off chafing or hot spots. The silken orientation of this sleeve allows the foot to effortlessly glide into the interior chamber when the shoe is donned.
