The Saucony Breakthru 3 is perfect for any runner looking for a lightweight everyday training shoe. With reduced weight, yet still featuring POWERGRID cushioning, the Breakthru 3 gives you a feeling of freedom whilst you run, and takes your mileage to new speeds.
The Breakthru 3 is formed from a soft, breathable mesh construction that allows air to permeate the interior layers to keep the foot cool, dry and comfortable as you power through each stride. Over time the mesh moulds to the shape of your foot to provide a truly personalised fit. This is unified with an internal RUNDRY Collar Lining which secures the heel whilst wicking moisture away from the surface of the skin, allowing the foot to stay dry and the wearer more focused on the road ahead. Finally, a solid heel cradle locks the heel in place and provides additional support.
Merged over to secure the mesh in place, FlexFilm overlays support the mesh structure from torsion and any sharp vigorous movements. It wraps and cradles, hugging the foot in the most strategic areas without ever getting in the way of the comfort that this shoe provides. At the forefoot a seamless open toe box design offers superior comfort, further augmenting a sock-like feel.
The midsole utilises heel-to-toe POWERGRID cushioning. This proprietary midsole component combines shock dissipating GRID technology with Powerfoam material to create a cushioned and responsive ride. POWERGRID is a lightweight, premium cushioning foam that delivers a smoother and more rebound-filled ride than Saucony's other midsole foams, at an even lighter weight. This midsole engineering works in parallel with the full length SSL EVA midsole, which provides lightweight comfort, rebound and durability with superior impact protection.
The Breakthru 3 is set with Saucony 8mm offset Technology, which distributes the cushioning more evenly between the heel and forefoot for greater all full shoe protection. The result? Your body stays in a more balanced and comfortable position with every foot strike, which helps to minimise the strain on your joints.
The Breakthru 3's outsole is constructed with a blown XT-900 compound throughout. This is a carbon rubber material that offers durable traction and control, helping the wearer to make quick, agile movements when out on the road. The durable nature of the XT-900 rubber results in a shoe that will maintain its high performance and last you longer. Saucony's Injection Blown Rubber (IBR+) also features, and provides exceptional outsole cushioning at an extremely light weight - 33% lighter than other blown rubber compounds! Flex grooves are included throughout the outsole, and provide flexibility throughout to accommodate your foot's natural movements, and maintain optimal grip throughout the gait cycle.
In 1898, four young businessmen opened the Saucony Shoe Manufacturing Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. By 1910, they were turning out 800 pairs of shoes a day from their two-story brick factory on the Saucony Creek. Throughout the early and mid-1900's, running became the focus of serious athletes and at that time, there weren't any high-performance running shoes. Saucony were determined to make a shoe that could change the way people run. In 1969, Saucony found a new home in Cambridge, Mass and have been loyal Bostonians ever since. Saucony exists for runners as runners inspire them and bring them new ideas. They drive the design and engineering while keeping them competitive. This focus and passion fuels Saucony as they strive to create the best running shoes and apparel on the planet.Manufacturer product code - S2035-85
