Saucony DXN Trainer CL Essential History
Saucony took a stroll down memory lane as they released a number of their most famous and most praised models in fresh new colorways and materials. One of these is the Saucony DXN Trainer CL Essential, which was first released in 1983. Made in partnership between the brand and New Zealander running legend Rod Dixon, the Saucony DXN is the by-product of months worth of dedicated effort to perfect Rod's dream shoe.
Saucony's Engineering Team and Rod started out with the Saucony Jazz's silhouette and applied various enhancements to aid in better running performance. Upgrades include mesh uppers for a more breathable and lighter fit, a lower heel for a sturdier ride, and an insert placed at the midfoot for added cushioning.
The Saucony DXN Trainer CL Essential is the original's offspring and remains faithful to its predecessor by retaining everything except for the cushioning. This reiteration features more padding and comes in new colorways to keep pace with today's modern sneaker.
- The shoe’s upper is made of mesh and nylon.
- The collar is padded for comfort and cushioning.
