The Saucony Breakthru is the model from the american brand to fill the position of a traditional performance shoe. It features a versatile blend of the conventional firmness and 8 mm drop from the Ride 7 and the modern responsive lightness from the Kinvara 5.
As well as many other Saucony shoes, the Breakthru relies on a full length PowerGrid™ platform on top of SSL (Saucony Super Light) EVA layer in the midsole to provide a cushioned but responsive ride. Outsole includes several flex grooves for great flexibility to contribute to smooth transition and presents softer and lighter rubber (iBR+™) in the forefoot for elasticity and a firmer one (XT-900™) in frequent impact zones to assure better response and durability.
The upper shows a modern and agressive style in line with its characteristics. It is made of breathable air mesh with few synthetic layers melded (FlexFilm™) for improved seamless fit. Interior lining from both ankle collar and tongue are made of RunDry™ materials for great breathability and odour control resulting in optimal comfort.
