The Saucony Echelon LE2 is designed as a walking shoe for people with neutral pronation and supination (underpronation). It is claimed to offer a more steady platform while delivering maximum comfort and support. For those who require a bit more arch support for stability, Saucony offers its Grid Omni Walker model.

The Echelon LE2 employs the brand’s own iBR+ rubber material on the outsole unit. It is designed to be about 30% lighter and provide more cushioning than the conventional blown rubber. It also serves to protect the midsole from abrasion.

The XT-900 material throughout the outsole contributes to the durability of the platform. Made of premium carbon rubber material, it is a hard-wearing and traction-ready compound.

The Saucony packs the midsole of the Echelon LE2 with a multitude of technologies to provide wearers with plush cushioning and ensure a steady gait. The highlight feature is the POWERGRID compound, which runs the full length of the sole. It is manufactured to be 30% more lasting and 15% lighter than the regular foam. It serves to attenuate shock and center the heel upon the footfall and deliver a bounce-back at the toe-off.

The dual-density S SL EVA foam is also responsible for cushioning. Described as the brand’s most advanced EVA blend, it serves to provide enhanced rebound and durability.

The SRC Impact Zone contributes to the cushioning. Located in the heel section, it absorbs the shock from the heel strike. 

A molded EVA ComforLite sockliner is placed for extra cushioning and arch support. It takes the shape of the foot, offering more comfort. It can also be easily removed or replaced by an orthotic insert.

The full-grain Garment leather makes up the upper unit of the Saucony Echelon LE2. It is a soft yet supportive material which gives a responsible coverage for the foot throughout the walk.

The shoe is designed to be orthotic friendly. It implies that the upper features a larger volume to accommodate the insert without compromising the fit.

The plush tongue and collar are meant to hug the foot in a comfortable and supportive way. They make sure that the foot is free of irritation and the rear doesn’t slip out of the shoe.
