    The Saucony Hurricane ISO 2 is a great option for runners looking for a shoe that provides stability. The support and frame on the back of the heel is one major advantage to this shoe compared to some of the other Saucony models. This shoe offers runners a secure ride, along with comfort provided from the 8-mm offset cushioning and EVERUN technology.

    This model is lightweight, responsive, and has a number of great color options to choose from.

    The technology also acts as an additional layer to the shoe’s outer, which may come in handy this winter in fighting the cold, snow, or rain.

  • 80 / 100 by Running Shoes Guru • Frank May • Level 4 expert

    The Saucony Hurricane Iso 2 is a cushioned stability shoe that will impress current fans of the Hurricane line of shoes, but may not bring enough to the table to stand out against the competition.

  • 72 / 100 by Gear Institute • Mandie33 • Level 3 expert

    This shoe would be great for a first-time marathoner or half-marathoner, someone that is going to do a lot of running and needs some extra cushioning and support.

  • 90 / 100 by Chucky • Chucky • Level 1 expert

    This round is like a whole other level: comfy, durable, great fit. 

  • 80 / 100 by Men's Running Magazine • David Castle • Level 1 expert

    The interior feels plush with a rigid heel counter.

  • 78 / 100 by Women's Running • Jennifer Bozon • Level 1 expert

    It's a really comfortable and secure ride, if a bit weighty, which is quite expected for a stability shoe.
