90 / 100 based on 3 expert reviews

  • 94 / 100 by Runner's World • Runner's World • Level 5 expert

    Unbelievably lightweight and stable.

  • 84 / 100 by Running Competitor • Brian Metzler • Level 5 expert

    It’s still a fairly beefy stability shoe, but deep flex groves and lighter materials allow it to run easier without lessening its support.

  • 94 / 100 by Fix My Walk • Mike Stone • Level 2 expert

    In conclusion, great stability shoe, especially for over pronators, I also recommend this shoe for the runner that needs an extra heel or ankle support and protection.

Updates to Saucony Omni 13

  • The upper of the Omni 13 was changed. The stitched-on overlays found in the previous version have been replaced by no-sew overlays mostly on the toe box area. This provides added support, comfort and secure fit.

Saucony Omni 13 size and fit

For the sizing of the Omni 13, it follows the standard running shoe length and it has the medium fit. Thus, you just need to pick your actual size for you to be able to get the perfect fit.


Outsole

To prevent slipping off the ground, especially on wet surfaces, this shoe has the carbon rubber material XT-900 that is specifically located in the heel. This shoe also has a more responsive ride and an enhanced cushioning with the presence of IBR+ in the forefoot area that is made of a lightweight flexible material.


Midsole

For a cushioned and responsive ride, the Omni 13 features the combination of a Powerfoam material and shock dissipating Grid technology through the Heel to Toe Powergrid. In order to control overpronation, it features the Dual Density SSL EVA. Furthermore, it gives lightweight comfort and durability through the Saucony Super Lite midsole material.

From the heel to the midfoot, the Saucony Omni 13 has the SRC Impact Zone that is made from Super Rebound Compound. This provides a smooth transition from heel to toe and improves the shoe’s shock absorption.


Upper

The entire upper of this shoe is covered with an open mesh, which is a breathable lightweight fabric. It provides comfort and avoids unwanted moisture through the HydraMAX Collar Lining that cups the heel. In addition, it also has the Midfoot Arch Strap that ensures comfort and snug fit of the shoe’s upper. For a secure fit, the Saucony Omni 13 features the Arch-Lock that is specifically utilized in the midfoot area.
