The Saucony Jazz Low Pro is a lower version of the classic Jazz silhouette. It features a slim-fitting combination of nylon and suede upper, textile lining and cushioning insole, lace up closure with an extra set of different colored laces, and a foam-padded collar and tongue. The Saucony branding is clearly visible on the side panels, tongue, and heel. The outsole bears the Jazz signature XT600 triangle-lug rubber traction. Ample cushioning is provided through a slimmed-down EVA midsole.
Saucony Jazz Low Pro History
When the brand Saucony gets mentioned, one can easily associate it with one of the best running shoes ever created, the Saucony Jazz - the sneaker model that won the hearts of the runners in the ‘80s and the brand’s best-seller sneaker model of all time.
It all began in 1981 when Saucony committed to working closely with a team of podiatrists led by Frank Santopietro in coming up with the best comfort shoe for distance runners. The concept was to design a sneaker that concentrates on weight reduction while achieving greater balance. This was achieved through the introduction of the Saucony Jazz. The Saucony Jazz features a low-top silhouette, a Maxitrac triangular lug outsole, a Saucony sock insert for an added comfort, and the “Butterfly Balance” design. It was created to be the best and it delivered, making it one of the most sought-after models up until now.
In 1998, the Jazz Original was re-released under the company’s new sub-brand called as the Saucony Originals, which caters to cost-conscious running aficionados. It has come a long way since then and has been released in different shades and variations to suit everyone – some are minimal, while others are in a pop of colors. In 2002, the Saucony Jazz Low Pro, which is the lower version of the original silhouette, was introduced.
