Good to know

The Saucony Azura Weathered is available in men’s sizing. The pair fits true to size so it is recommended for one to go the usual size. Half sizes are also offered for those who find comfort in going the extra half size up. For women who would want to cop this pair, it is suggested to go a half or full size down.

With a traditional lace-up closure, a more custom and adjusted fit is achieved.

Created with a classic, low-top silhouette, the Saucony Azura Weathered has a premium nubuck upper with soft suede overlays, and durable ripstop mesh paneling that provide stylistic additions. Moreover, a premium leather adorns the sock liner and tongue tab of these trainers.

The sneakers come in only a few colorways which are in navy/brown, weathered yellow/purple, and light gray/purple. With a very trendy and versatile style, it is easy to match the Azura Weathered with anything on one’s wardrobe. A casual and sporty ensemble goes perfectly well with these trainers. One can pair these with jeans, jogger pants, and shorts. As for the top, shirts, flannel pieces, tank tops, and even long sleeves will do.

Constructed with a removable cushioned footbed alongside a lightweight, shock-absorbing EVA midsole, these make for extra response and cushioning for all-day comfort. The Torsional Rigidity Bar technology provides exceptional results in terms of energy return and stability of the foot.

Moreover, the molded TPU stability unit at the heel adds comfort, support, and performance. At the bottom of the shoes, a rubber outsole with XT-600 triangular tread-patterned outsole offers enhanced grip and traction.

Saucony was founded in Kutztown, Pennslyvania in 1898. The globally known American athletic shoe manufacture gets its name from Saucony Creek. In 1910, a Russian immigrant named Abraham Hyde created a rival shoe store in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and built a reputation based on his high-quality and technologically advanced footwear that founded his operation.

In the late 1960s, Hyde moved Saucony to Cambridge when the Russian bought them out having the ownership of Saucony changed hands once again in 2005 when they were acquired by Stride Rite Corporation. Saucony is most known for its technology in its performance footwear.

The brand also revisits its old archives and takes some of its classics to give them a re-make. Celebrating thirty years since its initial release, the classic Azura silhouette is upgraded into the Saucony Azura Weathered. The lightweight, running silhouette is upgraded with premium materials and comfort features.

  • The sneakers feature a padded tongue with logo Saucony Azura ST embossed on the label.
  • Also, synthetic microsuede panels are added to the trainers for extra durability.
