  • The Saucony Excursion TR 10 GTX is a trail running shoe that’s made for those with neutral pronation. It features components and designs that are optimized for the off-road paths. A sturdy, waterproof construction allows it to last long, even when constantly exposed to harsh outdoor conditions.
  • The upper unit of this reliable waterproof running shoe has breathable mesh, which allows environmental air to enter the shoe in order to keep the foot cool and dry. Synthetic overlays provide more structure to the façade of the product, while also ensuring an agreeable fit. The padded tongue and collar lock the foot in place and provide additional cushioning to the frame of the foot.
  • The underfoot cushioning system of the Saucony Excursion TR 10 GTX enables the runner to perform efficiently and confidently. A full-length foam provides responsive support and comfort throughout the gait cycle. A grid pattern in the rear section heightens the shock absorption during the striking phase.
  • A trail-optimized outsole makes this running shoe more agreeable for the trails. A durable rubber compound delivers traction and protection. It has a lugged design, which allows the shoe to traverse many types of terrain, even uneven ones. Flex grooves enhance flexibility in the forefoot.

Regular measurements were used in the making of the GTX versions of the Saucony Excursion TR 10. The sizing scheme follows the preferences of runners. The available width is medium, so it accommodates those who have medium sized feet. The semi-curved shape of this running shoe adheres to the natural shape of the human foot.


The XT-600 is a durable material that serves as the outsole unit of the Saucony Excursion TR 10 GTX. It protects the rest of the mid-sole from the potentially damaging effects of surface exposure, abrasion and continued use. It is also responsible for traction.

Aggressive gripping lugs heighten the traction-capability of the outsole unit. They hold onto the surfaces like clamps, effectively securing the runner to the topography at all times.

Flex grooves allow the forefoot to move more naturally. The toe off greatly benefits from this design because it’s essential in propelling the runner forward effectively.


The mid-sole unit of the Saucony Excursion TR 10 GTX features Injection Molded Ethylene vinyl acetate or IMEVA. This full-length foam is responsible for cushioning the entirety of the foot. It protects the runner from the impact forces while keeping the underside of the foot as comfortable as possible.

A Heel Grid System in the rear portion of the platform enhances cushioning and shock absorption. Heel striking becomes much easier because of this add-on as it disperses the impact forces during each step.

A Molded Sock Liner adds more cushioning to the immediate underfoot. It’s contoured to support the curves of the underfoot, making sure to provide cushioning to areas that aren’t typically addressed.


A breathable mesh material serves as the main fabric of the upper unit. It covers the foot responsibly and it allows air into the foot-chamber, giving a well-ventilated running experience.

Synthetic overlays add more structure to the upper. These stitched-on layers also assist in keeping the coverage as precise and agreeable as possible. They’re connected to the lacing system, so whenever the laces are adjusted, so will they.

The GORE-TEX® membrane makes the shoe waterproof. Water won’t easily be able to enter the shoe, except through the entryway for the foot. This added feature improves performance and confidence when tackling wet surfaces and conditions.

The padded tongue and collar adds more cushioning to the foot. They also keep the foot in place, preventing it from moving around the interior or even accidentally slipping off the shoe.
