Saucony® Launches All-New Endorphin 3 Collection  Endurance Sportswire

Leading the new generation of the Endorphin 3 Collection is the Endorphin Pro 3, the most cushioned carbon-plated running shoe in the brand’s award-winning lineup

WALTHAM, MA (August 2, 2022)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – As the popularity of carbon-plated running shoes continues to surge, global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony announces the launch of the highly anticipated Endorphin 3 Collection, engineered with the brand’s signature SPEEDROLL™ Technology and high-performance PWRRUN PB™ foam cushioning. Leading the new generation Endorphin 3 Collection is the Endorphin Pro 3, the most cushioned carbon-plated running shoe in the brand’s award-winning lineup.

Designed with a powerful carbon-fiber plate and a thick stack of 39.5mm PWRRUN PB foam cushioning, the Endorphin Pro 3 delivers more cushion and pop underfoot for the ultimate go-fast experience.

In addition to the Endorphin Pro 3, the Endorphin Collection also includes the do-it-all Endorphin Speed 3, featuring a reimagined nylon winged plate for better support. Updated geometry ensures a smoother ride while a fully redesigned upper delivers a comfortable fit. The Endorphin Shift 3 propels runners through the rigors of daily training with a higher stack of POWERRUN™ foam and an elevated PWRRUN+™ sock liner, ensuring maximum energy return for long-distance comfort. The all-new Endorphin Edge trail runner makes its debut with an intuitive and flexible Carbitex™ AFX three-quarter carbon plate for incredible ground feel that’s also propulsive, protective and efficient.

As the landscape for plated shoes powered by highly responsive foams continues to evolve, Saucony is steadily outpacing its competitors as the go-to brand of choice for maximum performance. According to a study conducted by Running Shoe Insight at this year’s marathon in Boston, Saucony was the number two brand of race day shoe worn by all levels of participants. Additionally, four of the top five shoes worn at the 2022 Boston race were plated, with the Endorphin Collection’s Pro and Speed models holding two of those spots.

“The Boston race is a great place to see what’s trending in marathon running footwear,” said Brian Moore, senior vice president of global product for Saucony. “For the marathon runner, shoe choice is monumental, and we’re honored to be a top choice of participants.

“Combining carbon plates with PWRRUN PB is a game changer, and Saucony is leading the pack with the Endorphin Pro 3, providing an accessible carbon-plated shoe for all runners looking for an edge when performance matters. Taking cues in its upper construction from developments we made in the Endorphin Pro+, the Pro 3 is made to go fast with technical advancements throughout that include a thicker stack of PWRRUN PB foam for a fun, bouncy, propel-you-forward ride with every stride. And while the shoe meets the criteria for the most elite racers, its accessible design, more underfoot cushioning and comfortable fit will appeal to all levels of runners looking for a high-performance experience. We’re extremely excited about the entire Endorphin 3 Collection, making great shoes even better with subtle but substantial changes that we know all runners will appreciate,” added Moore.
