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.
