Saucony Hurricane 14

 


RELEASE DATE:

  •   May 2012

 

When a shoe has been around long enough to boast a double-digit number at the end of its name, any updates are usually minor tweaks. Naturally, you don't want to turn away the faithful. But Saucony boldly overhauled the Hurricane.

The Hurricane 14 is 1.2 ounces lighter than its predecessor, is more flexible, offers more cushioning, and is more stable.  And Saucony lowered the heel-to-toe drop to 9.2 mm, down from 11.4 mm. Such dramatic changes could have gone horribly wrong, but Saucony came out with a winner, and wear-testers loved the update.

The Sauc-Fit feature in the upper helps lock the foot into the shoe.  The Hurricane 14 is a maximum feature, maximum support shoe designed for daily training and high mileage.

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