85 / 100 based on 4 expert reviews

  • 80 / 100 by Runner's World • Running Times • Level 5 expert

    The fit is rather generous, so those with low-volume feet may want to size down or at least get fitted before purchasing.

  • 90 / 100 by Run Pals • Run Pals • Level 4 expert

    This is a shoe that offers all the support and stability you need but won’t weigh your feet down or leave you lacking in style.

  • 89 / 100 by Fleet Feet Sports • Fleet Feet Sports • Level 3 expert

    The Hurricane's medial post of denser foam makes this shoe an excellent choice for the overpronator looking for a shoe with a lot of character but not a lot of bulk.

  • 78 / 100 by Runner's World • Steve Heflin • Level 1 expert

    It’s a bit on the heavy side, but it has a lot of support so that is to be expected.

Updates to Saucony Hurricane 16

  • The biggest update for this version is in its upper. Saucony designed it with the Sauc-Fit system. It locks the mid-foot secure into the platform while it keeps the heel comfortable. The upper also has a support frame which secures the heel and gives it a great fit. The heel part is added with reflective details also. The mesh material used in the upper is also made more durable for a more efficient running shoe.

Saucony Hurricane 16 size and fit

The Hurricane 16 is true to size. There is a great fit in the toe box and heel area, while the mid-foot area is wide enough to have a comfort feel. The use of the Sauc-Fit technology keeps the mid-foot properly locked in the platform for a more stable ride.


Outsole

The outsole of the Hurricane 16 is equipped with the iBR+ rubber, which is a lighter type of rubber with 3 times more cushioning provision. Combined to it is the XT-900 premium carbon rubber, offering the excellent traction needed but not lacking durability.


Midsole

The midsole of the Hurricane 16 is constructed with the full-length PowerGrid which is a Powerfoam material integrated with the reliable GRID technology. Because of this, the impact is absorbed and the pressures are distributed, resulting to a more responsive ride.

Also added in the midsole are the medial post and the SRC Impact Zone for support, stability, durability, shock absorption, and transition.


Upper

The upper of the Hurricane 16 is well-engineered with features and technology that include the Sauc-Fit for a unique fit upper system; the HydraMAX Collar Lining, for the lining material that wicks away moisture; the ComfortLite Sockliner, for the open-cell foam sock liner that is built with breathability and anti-microbial properties; the HRC+ Strobel Board that adds 1.5mm of EVA plush feel.
