The Hurricane ISO 3 is Saucony’s premium cushioned-support shoe. The centered Everun core provides plenty of cushioning while the sloped medial post provides support without being intrusive. The upper fits wider than the ISO 2.
Updates to Saucony Hurricane ISO 3
- The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is a maximum support running shoe that’s meant for the roads. It’s basically designed to provide stability and prevent overpronated foot motion. It doesn’t have a very bombastic façade because it’s not filled with thick layers of overlays. Most of the substantial heft is aimed at the underfoot platform.
- A breathable fabric is used for the upper unit. It accommodates airflow into the foot-chamber, thus enabling well-ventilated running experiences. An external supportive saddle on and a stretchable mesh in the inner wall assist in keeping the fit as comfortable and secure as possible. The collar lining even has a moisture-wicking capability, which helps in keeping the foot dry.
- The mid-sole unit of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 features the EVERUN, which is a full-length unit that’s responsible for underfoot cushioning. It is able to attenuate shock during the landing phase and facilitate enabled toe-offs. A Medial Post is added to correct over-pronation.
- Two rubber compounds are used for the outsole unit. They provide durable traction and protection against wear and tear. The forefoot area’s material is also responsive, so it’s able to add a bit more cushioning. Flex grooves make the platform more pliable.
Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 size and fit
The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 employs a standard sizing scheme. It follows the regular preferences of runners. The available widths for the men’s version are D – Medium and 2E – Wide. The women’s version’s widths are B – Medium and D- Wide. The versatile width profiles allow this shoe to accommodate those with wider feet.
The outsole unit of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 features the XT-900. Placed in the heel area, this carbon rubber material shields the mid-sole foam from wear and tear. It doesn’t peel off easily, as well.
The forefoot area’s IBR+ or Injection Blown Rubber is a lightweight material that serves as a protective layer against the abrasive nature of the asphalt. But its responsive nature also makes it a viable add-on for those who want to have additional cushioning.
Platform flexibility is enhanced with the Tri-Flex design. Horizontal grooves make the platform more pliable and agreeable to the natural motion of the foot.
The EVERUN is a foam unit that’s able to carry the foot responsibly throughout the running session. It disperses the impact forces during the landing phase, as well. This material is also present in the midsole of the Hurricane ISO 5, Kinvara 10 and other Saucony shoes for running.
An EVERUN Landing Zone makes the heel landings less tasking. It absorbs shock evenly, thus allowing the runner to transition easily towards the toe-off.
The PWRGRID+ has a grid-like design. It offers additional cushioning, as well as shock dispersion. It’s resilient, yet responsive.
A Medial Post is added to the mid-foot section. Its job is to prevent irregular pronation tendencies. With this component, the runner is able to enjoy a more natural and injury-free running experience.
The High Elasticity Sock Liner offers additional cushioning to the underfoot. It also maintains breathability because of the pores on its façade.
The upper unit of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 makes use of Engineered Mesh. This material resembles a woven cloth, though it’s much more durable. Its open construction allows air to flow easily into the foot-chamber, thus effecting a well-ventilated running experience for the wearer.
The ISOFIT is a stretchable mesh material that’s placed in the mid-foot section of the upper. It adjusts itself to the shape and movement of the wearer’s foot, thus evoking a sock-like fit that’s agreeable and comfortable.
The ISOFIT Saddle wraps around the foot and keeps it stable. It’s connected to the lacing system, so it’s able to tighten or loosen, depending on the preference of the runner.
A Support Frame is added to the rear section. This molded material supports the heel and locks it in place, thus preventing accidental shoe-removals.
The RUNDRY Collar Lining makes the interior as dry as possible because it staves off moisture.
