Saucony Redeemer ISO size and fit

The Saucony Redeemer ISO comes in regular sizes. The measurements for this running shoe are standard, so men and women can get the right size to satisfy their preferences. The available widths are medium and wide, thus enabling runners to actually get the one that’ll give them the correct fit, no matter the foot dimensions. Its semi-curved shape accommodates the natural shape of the foot.

Outsole

The IBR+™ is a resilient outsole component that’s very lightweight and responsive. It protects the rest of the sole unit from wear and abrasion, making sure that potential damage won’t affect the efficacy of the platform. It also gives traction over the roads, thus preventing slips and slides. Flex grooves are observed along the forefoot and the mid-foot sections. They actually allow the runner to move more naturally, making sure that the runner is able to get the flexibility that it needs to go through the gait cycle more responsibly.

Midsole

The PWRGRID+ mid-sole unit gives extra cushioning and bounce with each step. It keeps the foot in a balanced position while also preventing unnecessary displacements when it comes to where the underfoot is placed. It attenuates shock and sets the runner up for a better transition. A TPU Pillar makes sure that the medial mid-foot area is well-supported. It corrects the rate of pronation, keeping sure that the foot is at a neutral stance for a better and comfortable running experience.

Upper

A breathable mesh material is used as the main upper unit for the Saucony Redeemer. It’s comfortable and flexible. It allows air to come inside the shoe to keep the foot cool and dry at all times. Synthetic overlays provide structure to the upper. They also assist the mesh material in adapting to the fit preferences of the wearer, following the adjustments made to the lacing system to which they’re connected. The ISOFIT system consists of a very soft inner sleeve that’s made from a stretchable material. It conforms to the natural shape of the wearer’s foot, giving a sock-like fit that’s reliable and consistent.
