Find Your Strong: Casual Running Shoes from Saucony

April 26, 2016
For someone who doesn’t run and just recently completed her first 5k marathon, I used to believe that all running shoes were the same – except for some are more fancier and more colorful. 
Until, I had my stance checked and they suggested I go for something with medium stability. 
Recently, I was introduced to the new technology by Saucony. The EVERUN – the most advanced technology to date highly anticipated by runners everywhere.
Saucony is a trusted shoe brand which has been in the business for 100 years. Its latest footwear line now equipped with the revolutionary EVERUN Continuous Cushioning Technology, combines aesthetics and superior functionality. Simply put, Saucony married style and performance in this new technology. 
The line up features the Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Triumph ISO 2 and Hurricane ISO 2 as well as the flagship shoes Kinvara 7 and Guide 9. 
The designs are so versatile that you can wear it casually, with comfortable cushioning for everyday activities.  I love that there is a pair of Saucony EVERUN shoes for every style and lifestyle – whether you are a certified runner, a casual sports enthusiast or just someone who has an active lifestyle (okay, I fall in this category).
Matteo Guidicelli for Saucony
Saucony launched their newest designs in Explorium in SM Mall of Asia, along with the EVERUN Continuous Cushioning and the newest addition to the roster of Saucony’s influential athletes – Matteo Guidicelli. Matteo joins the movement and campaign of “Find Your Strong” which basically pushes you to find your strongest points and where you are good at, and to go and go further. 

When Saucony approached me, natuwa talaga ako dahil I heard Saucony has been around for a hundred of years, they are a very very credible shoe brand, the technology of the shoes is amazing and their goals are the same with what I envision so it’s the perfect match!” -Matteo Guidicelli


Other sports influencers who “found their strong” include 2015 SEA Games Silver Medalist, Kim Mangrobang, current Olympic Distance National Record Holder, John Chicano; ITU (International Triathlon Union) Level 2 Coach and the only certified Active Release Techniques Provider in country, PJ Rivera. Also part of Team Saucony are Bike King founders Ting Joson and Raul Cuevas, Team Herbalife, and Team Ford Forza which is Guidicelli’s triathlon team.
Casual and Running Shoes

The Triumph ISO 2 and Hurricane ISO 2, each won back-to-back prestigious Editor’s Choice Awards in the Runner’s World 2015 Fall Shoe Guide and 2016 Spring Shoe Guide respectively. Featuring Saucony’s EVERUN Continuous Cushioning, the brand’s top-of-the-line premium models received the highest marks of the shoes reviewed by the Runner’s World Shoe lab, it’s wear-testers and editors.

Guide 9 is well-loved by most runners, the brand’s flagship guidance shoe is now even lighter (9.7 ounces in men’s size 9). It also comes with a completely updated full-length EVERUN topsole and a Dual Density medial post that allows for an efficient stride and lively, resilient ride. The TRI-FLEX outsole also prevents late-stage pronation. Its seam-free toe box offers comfort and lets the toes spread out during the last phase of the gait or running cycle.

 Kinvara 7 Saucony pioneered the natural motion category with the Kinvara where it earned Kinvara loyalists since its inception. The Kinvara 7 features quick, resilient ride, lockdown fit, and great underfoot feeling. It is equipped with the EVERUN Heel insert that promises cushioning where it’s needed most. Meanwhile, the FLEXIFILM-infused upper provides the foot support in each stride. The shoe comes with TRI-FLEX outsole configuration and wider lugs for better ground tract and smoother ride.

Finding My Strong
I was excited to check out and get my own pair of Saucony after learning more about the EVERUN technology. I feel that I need a shoe that I can wear (and abuse) whenever I am on the go. Isn’t such a pain to buy a pair of running shoes when I am not a certified runner? I want my money’s worth in every little investment that adds on my closet and room. I needed a pair that can work two ways – could be a running pair or casual one. 
My friend swayed me to get the Limited Edition Kinvara 7 which has a hand-painted design created by Japanese artist Toshikazu Noasaka. 
I found comfort in this beautiful pair that I wore for strolling around Kidzania.
Marjorie and I were twinning that night! She also got the the Limited Edition Kinvara 7!
.. and my whole day event last Friday where I spent 16 hours away from home – attending events, grocery (window) shopping, partying and visiting a friend’s wake. 
My feet and toes would have cried for help if I were wearing an uncomfortable pair.
