6 reasons not to buy

  • The Excursion TR 10 is quite stiff.

  • It looks too cumbersome or heavy for a few.
  • A moderate number of runners felt that the fit is tighter and smaller than the past versions of this shoe.
  • There is absolutely no ground feedback from this shoe, according to several reviewers.
  • The heavily-padded ankle collar, tongue, and midsole prevent the shoe from drying quickly.

Bottom line

The Excursion TR 10 is a burly, durable, and comfortable trail fiend that can handle moderately difficult terrains. It has exceptional comfort, good traction, and surprisingly runs lighter than how it looks or what the numbers indicate on the scale. The very affordable price, superb protection, and no-fuss functionality should make this shoe a worthy candidate for any trail enthusiast.

Rankings

Updates to Saucony Excursion TR 10

  • Saucony serves up changes in small measures in the 10th incarnation of the Excursion TR. These changes are done on the upper to improve the fit and the comfort of the shoe. Saucony uses more overlays that are also a bit thicker to enhance the locked down feel and midfoot hold.
  • The heel and ankle collar are now substantially more padded than before to really improve the step-in feel and wraparound fit. Running on uneven terrain will be more comfortable as the heel section is hugged in plush padding.
  • For more convenience during foot entry and exit, Saucony made the heel loop larger in the newest model of the Excursion TR. Lastly, the mesh is a bit thicker, but more pliable to add durability and a more accommodating fit.

Saucony Excursion TR 10 size and fit

The fit of the Saucony Excursion TR 10 is favourable for those with medium to slightly wider feet. It has average snugness in the heel and the midfoot while the forefoot has extra width for the toes to splay and to accommodate those with inflexible or flat feet. The plush interior and the extremely well-padded heel and ankle collar creates a wraparound effect designed for running on rugged surfaces. The sizing is accurate in this shoe.


Outsole

The outsole features the XT-600 carbon rubber in the heel and around the perimeter of the forefoot. Saucony blankets the perimeter area with toothy lugs for uphill or downhill running. The midfoot and a large part of the forefoot are covered with multi-directional lugs for enhanced traction. Durability is assured because aside from the abrasion-resistant rubber, the underfoot is quite thick.


Midsole

A standard injection-molded EVA or IMEVA covers the heel to the forefoot of the Excursion TR 10. It is responsible for the shock-absorbing features and responsiveness of the shoe. As it is relatively thick, there is a hint of softness in the midsole. The full-length design helps with the movement from landing to take-off.


Upper

The upper is populated by a combination of stitched and welded overlays that provide excellent security and support. Saucony’s utilization of a knit-mesh upper gives the shoe excellent breathability while retaining the ability to keep off dirt and debris. A plush tongue and collar enhances the comfort and snug fit of the shoe. For quick and effortless foot entry and exit, a heel loop is included in the design. A traditional lace-up closure clinches the fit of the 10th model of the Excursion TR.
