Updates to Saucony Cohesion TR 8
- Tackling the trails becomes easier with the 8th version of the Saucony Cohesion TR. This running shoe was created to deliver high quality cushioning, surface grip, and comfortable coverage for great adventures in the great outdoors. Made from sturdy components and materials, it effectively brings long lasting performance and service to those who need it.
- The upper unit of this running shoe makes use of mesh and synthetic materials to deliver a snug, but secure coverage. The runner feels well-wrapped by the upper, and they’d also feel proper air circulation because of the breathable nature of the fabrics. A great in-shoe feel makes the interior feel comfortable and non-irritating to the skin.
- The platform of the Cohesion TR 8 utilizes a high quality foam unit that provides responsible cushioning to the entire surface area of the underfoot. It is able to handle the impact forces when landing the foot on the ground, keeping each step as agreeable to the safety and comfort of the wearer. The durability of this mid-sole unit prevents it from sagging or breaking down, essentially giving consistent cushioning that’s reliable.
- Durable rubber covers the mid-sole unit and keeps it safe from the abrasive nature of the trails. Used liberally, this rubber material has a lugged design, which is helpful when it comes to holding onto various types of surfaces. Traction and protection are quite attainable with this layer.
Saucony Cohesion TR 8 size and fit
The Saucony Cohesion TR 8 is true to its size. The measurements that are used for this model are standard, so men and women are able to choose the right one that’s going to suit their preferences. The available width is medium, so it is able to accommodate those with medium sized feet. The natural curve of the human foot is able to fit well into this shoe because it has a semi-curved shape.
Durable rubber makes up the external unit of this shoe. It basically shields the rest of the sole unit from the potentially debilitating effects of surface friction, abrasion and wear. It’s strong enough to withstand being damaged, as well. The same durable rubber is also used in the Saucony Cohesion TR 11.
The gripping lugs of this shoe’s outsole unit follow a triangular design. It delivers reliable traction on the trails. It is even able to handle uphill climbs and downhill traversals. Being able to control how the shoe responds to the surface is quite important, and it’s done well in this model.
The IMEVA or the Injection Molded Ethylene vinyl acetate foam used in the Saucony Cohesion TR 8 is a high quality foam material that runs its entire length. It cushions the foot well, keeping it safe from impact forces while also making the underfoot experience feel plush and springy. It lasts long, so it won’t sag or break down easily.
The Heel Grid system is a unit in the rear of the shoe that’s made to receive the impact shock during the striking phase of the gait cycle. Heel strikers are the ones who are going to enjoy this module, but it’s essentially efficient as an additional cushioning system for all.
The foam insole adds a bit more cushioning and it’s placed immediately under the foot. It can be replaced or removed, depending on the runner’s preference.
The mesh material that’s used here is breathable and durable. It doesn’t tear apart easily, so it stays intact, even after many uses. Air is always encouraged to enter the shoe in order to keep the foot cool and dry.
Synthetic overlays are stitched onto the upper. They provide structure to the shape of the shoe while also making sure to assist the fabrics in hugging the foot in a snug and secure manner.
The Saucony Cohesion TR 8 has a reflective treatment that’s meant to add visibility when running at night or under low lighting conditions.
The fabric lining of the interior is breathable, so it stays dry and comfortable against the skin, even after long running sessions. The runner can even wear this shoe without socks because it doesn’t make the skin feel irritated.
