The Saucony Grid Omni Walker makes use of the proprietary XT-900 material on the outsole unit. It is a carbon rubber compound that delivers traction and lasting protection. It is also non-marking and doesn’t leave any scuffs or marks on the floors.
The Walk Trac lines extend from the midfoot to the forefoot section of the outsole. This design smoothens the walking gait cycle.
The flex grooves are also present in the forefoot area. They make sure that the flexibility of the foot is not hindered.
Stabilized and cushioned platform
The midsole unit of this walking shoe has a multitude of technologies, and it delivers a cushioned and stable walking session.
The hallmark feature of the shoe is the GRID cassette. Inherited from the Saucony’s running shoes, it is comprised of Hytrel thermoplastic elastomer filaments, which are interwoven to form an actual grid. It is embedded into the foam in the heel section of the shoe. When this construction bends upon the heel strike, it centers the impact in one area, giving the wearer better control of their movement.
The cushioning system is composed of a combination of the HRC and the SRC components. The HRC system is placed in the full length of the shoe. It is made of a fusion of the EVA and rubber, and it delivers responsive cushioning and shock absorption. The thicker forefoot provides a smooth toe-off.
The SRC impact zone complements the GRID in the heel section. Made of upgraded foam material, it provides 15% more resilience than the standard EVA foam. It also adds cushioning during heel strikes.
The shoe also features an asymmetrical sole design that supports the natural biomechanics of the foot.
Interior for orthotics
A removable sock liner provides extra arch support and cushioning. Owners have the option to remove or replace it with custom orthotics.
The Saucony Grid Omni Walker's upper
The Saucony Grid Omni Walker employs full-grain leather for its upper unit. This material gives a structured yet plush coverage for the foot.
Key area reinforcement
The additional leather overlays deliver enhanced support and durability in the key areas.
A conventional lace-up closure provides an adjustable fit. A padded tongue protects the instep from the pressure of the laces.
The padded collar keeps the rearfoot securely in place throughout the movement. A breathable mesh that lines the tongue and collar keeps the interior well-ventilated.
