- Some of Saucony’s best technologies are on hand in the Swerve. The latest in outsole technology covers the underfoot of this running footwear. It offers better cushioning, ground contact, and flexibility. Despite the relatively thick cushioning, the shoe is quite flexible mainly because of how the outsole is designed.
- The midsole features a tested Saucony foam that has superb responsiveness, relative to its weight. It has more than enough durability and increases the rolling motion of the runner towards toe-off.
- Upper support and security are provided by the no-sew construction. The overlays provide the right kind of hold and support without increasing the numbers on the weighing scale.
The fit of the Swerve is standard all throughout. From the heel to the forefoot, there is sufficient space for the feet to be comfortable, but with still enough support and security. There is also decent space in the forefoot for a natural toe splay. Runners with a slightly narrow to slightly wide feet should be able to get their preferred fit in this shoe. The shoe also has a standard shoe length.
Tri-flex, the latest in outsole design from Saucony, is the layout of choice in the underfoot of the Swerve. The outsole is highlighted by numerous flex grooves for great flexibility while angled rectangular pods give the shoe enhance ground contact and traction. It uses the tough XT-900 carbon rubber in the heel while iBR+, which lighter and more cushioned than regular blown rubber covers the rest of the outsole for improved grip.
A relatively thick slice of PowerGrid midsole foam offers the soft, yet responsive cushioning of the Saucony Swerve. It is an injection-molded EVA with Saucony’s own technologies sprinkled into it to give the foam added responsiveness and durability.
The engineered mesh that blankets the upper is very breathable with enough flexibility and support in the right areas. Providing more security are the FlexFilm overlays, which are fused onto the upper. Comfort is enhanced by the adequate cushioning and plush fabric of the tongue and the collar. The heel has the Rundry lining that wicks moisture and adds to the plush feel upon step-in.
