Size and fit

With the utilization of the lace-up closure system, the Saucony Excursion TR 13 GTX is sure to provide a more comfortable and secure fit. This is significant in making the user experience a more enjoyable ride.

Outsole

Like the Saucony Ride 10, the XT-900 premium carbon rubber is integrated into the outsole of the Saucony Excursion TR 13 GTX. The material intends to improve traction on a wide variety of surfaces. It is also focused on providing additional durability to the platform.

Featured in the shoe are triangular-shaped lugs. This component of the running footwear aims to provide added grip when tackling different terrains. It is meant to deliver rock-solid footing during the running session.

Midsole

Utilized in crafting the shoe is the Heel Grid system. This system is essential in providing a more stable cushioning. As a result, a smoother ride is experienced by the user.

Increased cushioning is encouraged by Versafoam midsole technology. This technology ensures a more responsive and comfortable feel is enjoyed by the runner in every step.

Upper

Making up the upper section of the shoe is the Gore-Tex. This material is added by Saucony to provide waterproof protection. 

Along with the Gore-Tex membrane is the trail-specific mesh. This feature of the footwear is constructed to protect the foot against hazardous materials like small rocks and debris. It also ensures that the foot is locked into place during the running activity. 

Used in the shoe is the sock-like padded collar and tongue. The utilization of these materials provides additional comfort to the foot.

The lace-up closure is integrated into the Saucony Excursion TR 13 GTX. The primary goal of this feature is to provide a more individualized fit.

For easy on and off, the heel pull tab is utilized. This helps in the smooth and easy sliding of the foot when wearing the shoe.
