Style of the Saucony DXN Vintage

The low-top Saucony DXN Vintage embraces its running heritage while taking on modern updates, such as having a fusion of nylon and suede on the upper. Done in a series of contrasting hues, this retro style immediately creates a nice contrast when paired with leggings, track pants, and shorts for a sporty vibe; or with denim or capris for a laidback look.

Notable Features

The Saucony DXN Vintage takes on some of the trademark assets of the former top-performing running footwear specifically comfort and shock absorption. Although this refashioned silhouette is no longer highly fitted for running, it still cushions and protects the foot for an all-day comfort feel. What makes it distinguishable from other variations is its toned down form with the use of nylon and unlined tongue.

History of the Saucony DXN Vintage

Saucony is one of the few brands that has been manufacturing breakthrough and technical shoes for more than a century now and instrumental in the progression of contemporary training footwear for running. From the time it pegged its roots in Saucony Creek in Pennsylvania, this brand has been creating notable footprints in the athletic world.

One of the most notable developments in Saucony’s archive is its team up with Olympian Rod Dixon. After Rod snagged gold in the 1983 New York City Marathon, Saucony collaborated with this runner in coming up with Rod’s dream shoe, the DXN (short for Dixon) Trainers. This technical training shoe for running was dropped in the same year Rod won the NY race.

Saucony DXN Vintage  Insole

After several decades, Saucony modified its retro runner and made it into a lifestyle appropriate sneaker, renamed as the Saucony DXN Trainer. Adding more mileage and nostalgic feel to the DXN collection, the brand introduced the Saucony DXN Vintage which utilized nylon, one of the commonly used upper materials in running shoes during the 1970s, reinforced by suede detailing.
