To celebrate Saucony’s 125th anniversary, the company launched the Endorphin Elite, its lightest, fastest and energy-efficient shoe.

Combining PWRRUN HG, Saucony’s highest rebound foam, with an articulated, fork-shaped carbon plate, the Endorphin Elite’s upper combines knitted and mesh materials for weightless performance while a midfoot webbing system secures “race-ready” fit.

“Innovation, evolution and an unwavering focus on the runner has been part of Saucony’s deep-rooted heritage,” said Brian Moore, senior vice president, global product, Saucony. “Today, that story continues with the release of the most innovative shoe we’ve ever made: the Endorphin Elite. We collaborated with our athletes for many years to create a pinnacle shoe with the express purpose of running faster, hunting down PRs and maximizing energy return. The Endorphin Elite, an expansion and evolution of the beloved Endorphin Collection, does it all and more. The combination of our new PWRRUN HG foam midsole and updated plate geometry delivers a propulsive, next-generation ride with the highest energy efficiency gain of all the Endorphin lineup to date. For runners of every level chasing fast times, the Endorphin Elite is definitely a legacy in the making.”

The Endorphin Elite will be available in men’s sizes 7 to 14 and women’s sizes 5 to 12 on February 21.
