Good to know
- The Saucony Omni 15 is a road running shoe that’s suited for those with overpronated foot motion. It features a robust underfoot experience that’s sure to support the arch and prevent it from deviating when going through the gait cycle. The cushioning is substantial in this model, but there is also flexibility to be had. High quality foam technologies make the ride springy and responsive.
- Breathable mesh makes up the main upper fabric of the Saucony Omni 15. It is capable of encouraging environmental air into the foot-chamber. A mix of stitched and melded overlays cover the mesh material. They help in providing a snug, secure yet customizable fit.
- The outsole unit of this running shoe features the XT-900, which is a high-quality rubber material that is highly resistant to abrasion. It protects the mid-sole from potentially getting damaged by surface exposure, friction, or continued use. The Tri-Flex design makes use of flex grooves in order to make the platform more flexible, but it doesn’t sacrifice the presence of the traction-capable rubber.
Standard measurements were used in the making of the Saucony Omni 15. The sizing schemes follow the regular preferences of runners. The available widths for men are medium and wide, while the widths for the women’s version are narrow, medium and wide. It has a semi-curved shape, which means that it accommodates the natural curve of the human foot.
XT-900 is a high-quality material made from durable carbon rubber. It protects the mid-sole foam from the abrasive nature of the asphalt. It also delivers traction, which is essentially in achieving surface control. The XT-900 is also used in the new Omni 16 running shoe.
The Tri-Flex design basically makes the underfoot platform more flexible. Flex grooves are present in the forefoot section. Aside from making the sole unit more bendable, they also provide optimum ground contact, which maximizes the traction capability of the XT-900 rubber.
The EVERUN is a responsive foam unit that runs the entire length of the Saucony Omni 15. It cushions the foot well, attenuating impact shock during the landing phase and lifting the foot up responsibly during the toe-off.
A medial post serves as a foundation that would correct over-pronation of the foot. It essentially balances the gait, keeping the stride neutral and consistently well-supported.
A foam insole adds a bit more cushioning to the underfoot. It can be replaced or removed entirely, depending on the preferences of the wearer.
Breathable mesh makes up the main cover system of the Saucony Omni 15. It is breathable, so it is able to accommodate airflow within the foot-chamber, thus making the coverage more agreeable.
The FlexiFilm is a lightweight but durable material that’s melded to the front section of the upper. It provides structure to the mesh, while also ensuring smooth, flexible and secure coverage for the foot.
The SAUC-FIT system utilizes stretchable components, which are stitched onto the upper unit. Connected to the lacing system, it adapts to the tightening or loosening of the shoelaces, essentially locking the foot in place and stabilizing it in the process. The mid-foot and the rear sections are the focus of this system.
