Who should buy the Saucony Endorphin Pro 3

With its fast performance and lightweight design, the Endorphin Pro 3 from Saucony is a no-brainer for:

Who should NOT buy it

If you want an easy-day running shoe or a dedicated speed trainer, you can skip the Endorphin Pro. 

Endorphin Pro 3 vs. 2: Speedier than ever

Everything about the Saucony Endorphin Pro screams fast and race-ready. And in the third edition, Saucony has taken it up a notch. 

Maxed out cushion

Competing with other super shoes on the market, the Pro 3 moves from 35.5mm stack (heel) and 27.5mm (forefoot) to 39.5mm stack (heel) and 31.5mm (forefoot). It's ultra-cushioned, to say the least. 

Apart from protection, this redesign also highlights a better spring back for a more energetic and responsive ride. 

Up your pace

The shoe's carbon-fiber plate has also been updated to enhance propulsion. It now covers 3/4 length of the shoe, making continuous forward motion a breeze. 

Paired with the plate is the shoe's pronounced Speedroll technology. It sports a rocker geometry that delivers seamless and fast transitions. 

Maximizing cushion, minimizing weight

Despite being big on stack (literally), the Saucony Endorphin Speed 3 is quite the opposite when it comes to weight. From 7.5 oz, it shaves it down to 7.2 oz (US M 9). How? 

  • more cut-outs on the outsole, especially on areas where foam is not needed
  • thinner upper (an "almost see-through" design inspired by track spikes
  • less tongue 
  • minimal heel counter
