Cool new stuff from Saucony

So I decided to try out the Hurricanes, and I have officially made the switch from the Omnis to the Hurricanes. I didn’t like the way the Progrid Hurricane 11 looked, so I went with last year’s model. Unfortunately, the new change to the shoe where it holds your heel in place is not included in this version of the shoe. I am anxiously awaiting the release of the 12 because I’m hoping that it is more aesthetically pleasing and contains the new heel feature. As you can tell from my blog, I like Saucony.

The shirts were on sale. I promise that they are two different styles. They look similar in the picture, but in real life are quite different. One of the shirts is protected with a rating of 50 spf. The other allows significantly more breathing. Oddly enough, if it were real sunny and hot, I would prefer to wear the shirt that didn’t have the sun protection.

Both shirts are very comfortable and fit well. I like the way they look and they feel great. Couldn’t ask more from a sale. Probably need to go grab a couple more pairs of shorts, but I will need shoes quickly because I am only running on one pair at this time. It is an economic depression.

Hurricane vs. Omni: From the horses mouth

Thank you for your inquiry.

In answer to your question, the Hurricane and the Omni are both from our stability category.  However, the Hurricane offers a few features that the Omni does not.  The Hurricane has the arch-lock (provides snug midfoot fit), full length progrid (absorbs impact, dissipates shock and provides a seamless transition from heel through forefoot) and impact interface (cushions and isolates heel impact).

Thank you for your patronage of Saucony and I hope this information is helpful.

Sincerely,

Danielle
