Saucony Men’s Endorphin Speed Running Shoe Review

shoe review

The Endorphin Speed quintessentially combines comfort and performance, creating it an excellent bridge between you’re regular trainers and you’re running flats.

The PWRRUN PB foam feels very responsive underfoot. It’s soft on landing, but it requires an effective reaction.

Like other shoes with plates, whether carbon-fiber or plastic, the Speed appears best at faster paces. The merger of the premier foam and the plate produce serious snap off the toe, which particularly gets better with a mid-foot to forefoot strike.

My overall consensus is the speed glows when I’m pushing quick and It seems like it’s urging for an immediate transition.

But that doesn’t mean the Endorphin Speed can’t handle cruising, too. Warm-up with an easy jog to the track, and then kick it into high gear for a speed workout; the Speed will pull double duty as a high-mileage trainer and a PR-hawking performer.

One of the significant benefits of Endorphin Speed is its feathery weight. At 6.8 oz for the women’s model and 7.8 oz for the men’s, the Speed doesn’t hold you back. It feels lively and light on the run, which I loved.

The Endorphine Speed at size 13 is 9.2 oz. I am 6’2 and roughly 208 pounds This is a great shoes for those like me that have back and knee issues. The soft landing keeps you refreshed and willing to grind out more miles.

It certainly looks like Saucony didn’t go overboard on anything here, which is nice. It has just the right amount of foam underfoot and not too much padding anywhere to keep the weight down. It looks and feels light.

Beneath the shoe, Saucony tacked on an abrasion-resistant rubber outsole. The majority of the rubber coats the forefoot, but a ring of rubber runs around the edge of the mid-foot and heel. The foam is exposed in the middle of the shoe.

One huge difference between Speed and other everyday trainers is the construct of the mid-foot. Designers pinched the midsole in at the mid-foot like they cinched a belt around the shoe’s waist. The shoe’s design encourages mid-foot to forefoot strike that you generally encounter when you run quicker.

The shoe also employs Saucony’s proprietary Speedroll technology. This is the combination of the shoes’ shapes, foams, and stiffness. Saucony says the combo aligns a runner’s hips for a more effective stride, reduces stress on feet and joints, and develops performance.

Endorphin Speed. Saucony’s middle shoe blends speed and comfort with a more flexible nylon plate. Great for speed workouts and uptempo days.

Endorphin Pro. A carbon-fiber plate powers the fastest shoe in the collection. Ideal for race day. 

The Saucony Endorphin Speed bridges the gap between you’re everyday trainers and your’re racing shoes.

Designers shaped the Speed for a comfortable fit that’s easy on your feet even as the miles add up. The lightweight upper lets the shoe breathe easily, and the nylon plate pairs well with the ultra-springy PWRRUN PB foam for a propulsive ride.

The Speed for runs that vary in pace because it handles different speeds well. I love the Speed’s versatility and It excels at fast paces but can handle a warmup and cooldown just fine.
