The Tri-Flex design is utilized to make the underfoot platform more adaptable and flexible. This updated model aims to provide ground contact and adherence to the natural bending of the foot.

Saucony Omni 16 responsive foam

The midsole is made up of a responsive foam unit that is called the EVERUN. This material runs the entire length of the shoe, and it aims to provide a resilient and bouncy feeling.

Controls over-pronated foot motion

It attenuates the impact shock during the landing phase and responsibly lifts the runner's foot up during the toe-off phase. The Dual Density Super Lite EVA aims to control overpronation without compromising the shoe's lightweight structure, rebound property and durability.

A Comfortlite Sockliner is used to reduce the pressure on the underside of the foot. This material is molded to the contours of the arch and heel for added comfort.
