 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Saucony Cortana 2

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • November 2012

 

Saucony released the much-anticipated Cortana 2 running shoe.  This shoe replaced the Saucony Cortana, the first generation running shoe.   This brand new shoe is going to shake up the running world by creating its own category as a neutral runner that also provides exceptional support.   The Cortana 2 shoes come in a variety of engaging colors and has a neat design pattern across the toe area and the sides.

The Saucony Cortana 2 is a light-weight trainer coming in at around 8.7 oz for the men and 7.7 for the women.  Runners will be able to get use out of the Cortana 2 as a track, road, racing flat or everyday trainer.  It was very exciting for me that the Cortana 2 has a wider toe box than my last pair of Saucony running shoes, I felt comfortable when I put them on.  The seamless upper is incredible, the cushioning is fantastic for such a lightweight shoe.

Featuring a brand new midsole material by the name of U4ic (pronounced euphoric) which is 30% lighter than Saucony traditional AP+ midsole but still offers plenty of cushioning and a smooth transition.

These shoes felt good for short speed training runs.  Also, I used them for runs up to 8 miles which the shoe felt sturdy and my feet felt  quick and light.
