Share This Page: Saucony, American Heritage Famous for runners and lifestyle sneakers, Saucony was founded in 1898 in Pennsylvania on the banks of the Saucony Creek. Calling back to their roots, Saucony’s logo represents the Saucony Creek, and the three circles in the logo represent the boulders lining the creek bed. Pronounced “sock-a-knee”, the brand exploded with runners in the late 70s and early 80s due to two of their sneakers landing a spot on the Top 10 running shoes list in Runner’s World magazine. In the following years, Saucony had to increase production of their products 20 fold. The brand specializes in racing, running, and walking sneakers with focus on foot size, width, arch type, pronation, running type, and running location. The Saucony Grid was the first running sneaker to offer comfort and stability in the midsole as opposed to the typical flat, uncomfortable midsole of the past. Leading the industry in running innovations, the Saucony Flight was the first running shoe to feature a medial post which padded the midsole to help prevent pronation, the inward rolling of the foot during a run. Saucony’s Originals brand recreates old silhouettes from the brand’s early days, and updates them with better materials and new colorways to meet today’s trends. Classic silhouettes like the Jazz and the Shadow have been mainstays of Saucony’s line with their throwback style since their inception.
