Promoting surface contact and flexibility

Saucony’s XT-900 carbon rubber covers the quick-wearing areas of the 10th instalment of the Cohesion while the softer iBR+ wraps most of the midfoot and forefoot for traction. These outsole materials are also present in the popular Saucony Cohesion 12 running shoe.

The outsole is unique as it is Saucony’s latest in the Tri-Flex configuration. Saucony aims to improve surface contact for stability, flexibility because of the numerous flex grooves, and even more grip.

Ordinary foam, extraordinary performance

Perhaps the simplest part of the Cohesion 10’s makeup is found in the midsole. It uses the old reliable IMEVA or injection molded EVA for cushioning and shock-absorption. The foam is moderately thick and gives adequate performance under respectable mileage.

Well-padded upper elements for comfort

The upper is very much a presentation of the network of overlays on both sides of the shoe. These overlays do an excellent job of supporting the foot without being overbearing. Saucony keeps the collar and tongue very well-padded for comfort while the removable insole adds cushioning and can be replaced with orthotics. The breathable coverage is made possible by a soft mesh with numerous holes in the forefoot. There are also reflective details in the upper for those who may find themselves running before dawn or at dusk.
