Size and fit

The Saucony Omni ISO has a standard running shoe length when it comes to sizing. It is sure to accommodate medium-footed runners. The available widths are D - Medium, 2E - Wide for the men's and B - Medium, D - Wide for the women's version.

Outsole

Located in the forefoot area is the IBR+ technology. This component of the shoe enhances cushioning. This lightweight and flexible material also aims to provide a more responsive ride. The IBR+ technology is also used in the Saucony Guide 10, Saucony Omni 16 and other Saucony shoes for running.

The Saucony Omni ISO utilizes the XT-900. This carbon rubber is found in the heel area of the outsole. With the aim of providing the right amount of traction, surface control is then delivered to the platform. With the utilization of this material, the midsole foam is protected against the hazardous nature of paved surfaces.

To make the underfoot platform more flexible and adaptable, the Tri-Flex design is utilized in the footwear. The Tri-Flex design has also been updated to help increase the shoe's durability.

Midsole

The midsole of the Saucony Omni ISO is made up of an EVERUN. This material is responsive foam unit that runs through the entire length of the shoe. This component of the footwear aims to provide a bouncier and more resilient feeling. During the landing phase, it attenuates impact shock, and during the toe-off phase, it responsibly lifts the runner's foot up in a comfortable manner.

Integrated into the shoe is the PWRFoam. This high-quality form of EVA foam provides additional comfort during the running session. With the use of this foam, the life of the shoe also lasts a longer span of time.

To limit pronation, the Medial Post is utilized in the midsole area. Pronation is described to be the inward rolling of the foot. This rolling occurs after initial ground contact with the ground. The primary purpose of this technology is to prevent excessive pronation that can result in possible injuries and pain.

Shock absorption is offered by the SRC Landing Zone. As a result, a smoother heel-to-toe transition is experienced by the runner. When a runner lifts his foot off the ground, energy is then stored and returned.

Upper

The upper of the Saucony Omni ISO is covered with an Engineered Mesh. As a result, a sock-like fit is achieved without compromising the shoe's weight. The engineered mesh is essential in providing proper inflow and outflow of air within the footwear's interior.

A floating support cage and a soft inner sleeve are combined to create a dynamic fit system. This technology is called the ISOFIT. Its primary purpose is to adapt to the movements and shape of the foot.

The combination of the sock-like feel of the ISOFIT and the engineered performance kit makes up the ISOKNIT. This component of the shoe gives additional support and breathability to the platform. Freedom of movement is also encouraged by this ISOKNIT.
