Saucony Freedom Trainer History
The Saucony Freedom Trainer is a reissue of the classic running shoe that was released in 1981. It comes in the original colorway (crimson) of the original. The Freedom Trainer was reissued as part of Saucony’s Freedom Pack.
The Freedom Pack is a mix of the old, the new, and a hybrid. It was launched to celebrate the release of the Freedom ISO Runner (the new) which uses Saucony’s new foam technology called the EVERUN. The EVERUN lasts three times longer than EVA and not as temperature-sensitive. It also gives continuous cushioning for every stride and impact for reduced pressure at the forefoot and smoother landing at the heel.
The Freedom Pack also contains the Saucony Freedom Runner (the hybrid) which is a combination of the Freedom Trainer’s upper and the new EVERUN sole.
The Freedom Trainer (the old) kept its classic aesthetics intact but comes with additional features such as reflective material on the tongue, heel tab, and panels. The upper is made of pig suede paired up with mesh.
Saucony Freedom Trainer Style
The Saucony Freedom Trainer was initially designed for the legends of the sport of running. While it can still be used for running, fitness exercises, and other sports activities, it would look good as a casual shoe as well. The Freedom Trainer goes perfectly with sporty outfits such as track pants but looks trendy when paired with jeans, denim, and chino shorts.
Fit & Sizing
These low top shoes are available in men’s sizes which range from 3.5 to 14 with half sizes offered. The Freedom Trainer shoe runs true to size.
The Freedom Trainer features Saucony’s Ionic Cushioning system in the midsole for reducing impact. The midsole aids improvement of the gait cycle by helping correct pronation. The outsole, made of durable XT-600 carbon, offers outstanding road grip and traction.
