Updates to Saucony Propel Vista

  • The shoe utilizes IMEVA in its midsole. It is a flexible and durable material that absorbs shock and enhances the cushioning of the shoe.
  • The outsole is made of XT-600™ carbon rubber, a material known for its flexibility and lightweight. It not only provides extraordinary traction, but also ensures the lasting durability of the shoe.

Saucony Propel Vista size and fit

Standard measurements were used in the making of the Saucony Propel Vista. It accommodates the regular preferences of runners in terms of size. The available width is medium and that applies to both the men and women’s versions.

Outsole          

Saucony uses XT-600™ carbon rubber in its outsole, which is a non-abrasive, stretchy and long- lasting material. It provides exceptional grip on the ground and allows a soft landing.

There are also the flex grooves that accommodate the natural flexibility of the wearer’s foot.

Midsole

The midsole of the Saucony Propel Vista is composed of IMEVA foam, an extremely soft, long-lasting and flexible material. It absorbs shock and reduces the pressure points on the feet.

The presence of a sockliner gives additional cushioning and comfort. This insert is a soft and flexible material that can be removed or replaced anytime.

Upper

The upper of the shoe utilizes a breathable mesh fabric, which is supported by synthetic overlays to ensure the durability of the top construct, as well as air ventilation for a cool and dry environment.

The lace-up closure on the upper protects the runner's foot. It locks down the foot securely and keeps it in place.

A rubber toe cap is provided to protect the toes from scrapes or injuries when the foot takes off.
