The Omni provides a wide, stable, and well-cushioned platform without being heavy or stiff.
Saucony’s stability shoe for medium to severe over-pronators gets a decent a decent upgrade.
For a sturdy stability shoe, this one is very comfortable and fairly light.
It offers a high amount of support but doesn't sacrifice flexibility because of it.
This year, Saucony removed the plastic shank from under the midfoot, but by filling in the arch and widening the heel, they retained stability with a smoother-rolling feel.
- Saucony have not gone into many updates on the 14th version of the Saucony Omni. The only thing that was notably changed is the upper unit of the shoe. It used the new SAUC-FIT element that gives a more comfortable and secure fit.
The 14th version of the Omni has a standard running shoe length. Just like its predecessor, the heel, forefoot and midfoot have standard measurements as well, comfortably accommodating runners with medium foot shape. This shoe is available in standard shoe width.
The Saucony’s XT-900 technology offers maximum traction for runners to experience a good run even on wet surfaces. The carbon rubber material offers increased grip without affecting the shoe’s durable attributes.
The Saucony Omni 14 uses the iBR+ technology in its outsole. It is a lightweight rubber material that enhances the cushioning of the shoe needed for a comfortable, responsive ride. The same outsole material is also utilized in the Saucony Omni 16 road shoe.
The shoe uses the PowerGrid Technology for a smoother ride. The Grid element together with the Power foam, that is lightweight and reliable, offers an enhanced rebound-filled ride.
The midsole also features the Dual Density Saucony Super Lite EVA that controls overpronation without sacrificing the shoe’s lightweight comfort, durability and energy-rebound capacity.
The Super Rebound Compound was extended from the heel to the midfoot in order to enhance the shoe’s shock absorption characteristics and to give a smoother heel-to-toe transition.
The upper unit of the Saucony Omni 14 features a stretchable open air mesh for maximum breathability and comfort. This works well with the shoe’s RUNDRY collar lining that keeps foot cool, dry and odorless through its moisture-wicking capacity.
It also features the new SAUC-FIT technology that delivers a more comfortable feel and fit. It also hugs the foot securely. The upper also utilizes the heel support frame that offers maximum heel support throughout the running cycle.
