Saucony® Unveils All-New Endorphin Pro 3

June 22, 2022

Showcasing a new dimension of speed, the most cushioned carbon-plated running shoe in the brand’s award-winning Endorphin Collection makes world debut at Paris Fashion Week

WALTHAM, MA (June 22, 2022)/ENDURANCE SPORTSWIRE/ – As the popularity of carbon-plated running shoes continues to surge, global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony announces the unveiling of the highly anticipated Endorphin Pro 3, the most cushioned carbon-plated running shoe in the brand’s award-winning Endorphin Collection. Race ready to propel all levels of runners past their limits, the Endorphin Pro 3 is engineered with the brand’s signature SPEEDROLL™ Technology, a powerful carbon-fiber plate and an even thicker stack of PWRRUN PB™ foam; working together, these features deliver more cushion and pop underfoot for the ultimate go-fast experience. Bridging the gap between innovation, design and heritage, the Endorphin Pro 3 will be revealed during Paris Fashion Week on June 21 at the Saucony House of Speed, a venue as striking and colorful as the shoes it is celebrating. The Endorphin Pro 3 will be available at saucony.com and select markets globally beginning June 22.

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 in 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 Endorphin Pro 3 is made to go fast with technical advancements throughout that include a 39.5mm 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.

Only a short walk from the House of Speed, the Saucony House of Originals will showcase the brand’s Spring/Summer ’23 lifestyle heritage collection exclusively for trade, media and social influencers. On June 22, the brand will celebrate the prelaunch of the 3D G.R.I.D. Hurricane retro at an event open to the public at Footpatrol Paris.

“We look forward to unveiling the new Endorphin Pro 3 at Paris Fashion Week. This will be the first time we have the two parts of the brand come together as one — performance and Originals — at a major city’s fashion event, bringing to life the brand’s leadership in innovation, design and heritage. By launching at a renowned industry event, this power shoe puts a stake in the ground for reaching across the aisle in performance footwear, and engages runners on multiple levels,” added Moore.

In addition to the Endorphin Pro 3 (SRP: $225.00), the updated Endorphin Collection includes the Endorphin Speed 3 (SRP: $160.00) with a reimagined nylon winged plate for better support; the Endorphin Shift 3 (SRP: $150.00) with a fully redesigned upper for a more comfortable fit; and the Endorphin Edge trail runner (SRP: $200.00), with an intuitive and flexible Carbitex™ AFX three-quarter carbon plate for incredible ground feel.

The Endorphin Collection will be available beginning June 22 at saucony.com and select markets globally. The U.S. launch dates for the Endorphin Collection are as follows: Endorphin Pro 3 beginning August 2; Endorphin Speed 3 beginning August 16; and Endorphin Shift 3 beginning October 4. The Endorphin Edge trail shoe will be available in early fall. The Endorphin Collection is available in men’s sizes 7-13, 14 and 15, and women’s sizes 5-12.
