The incorporation of the ISOFIT system in the upper of the shoe is responsible for its snug, sock-like wrap around the foot. For added security, a cross strap in the midfoot is utilized. 

Lanzar Jav 2 maximizes propulsion

Flaunting an outsole like that of its predecessor, the Saucony Lanzar Jav 2 exhibits a combination of both Pebax plate and rubber outsole.

The spike plate of the shoe is famous for enabling the right balance of rigidity and weight, maximizing the propulsion of the athlete. It also employs flexible properties, permitting unrestricted foot movements for more natural flex. 

Comfortable cushioning

Located in the shoe’s midsole is a CMEVA foam. It is composed of TPU pellets that are heated then cooled in a mold. This material is tasked to supplement the cushioning in the underfoot, allowing comfort.

Such a component also presents a highly durable configuration, preventing natural wear and tear. 

Adaptive fit

What makes a Saucony track spike is the reliable elements and proprietary innovations added to its overall construction. This is especially true with the Saucony Lanzar Jav 2. It sports the renowned ISOFT system from the brand.

The upper technology is meant to adapt to the foot’s shape and size, providing glove-like, snug wrap around the foot. 

Saucony Lanzar Jav 2 provides ankle support

The cross strap that runs across the midfoot pushes the foot down into the midsole, preventing any slippage and unwanted shoe removal. A durable forefoot synthetic accommodates the foot into the platform while enabling security.

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
