Saucony Endorphin Pro 1st Run Review, Shoe Details, Comparison to Endorphin Speed and Other "Super Shoes"

Article by Sam Winebaum

Saucony Endorphin Pro ($200)

I take Saucony's top new racer, the Endorphin Pro with its graphite polymer plate and very light and lively PWRN PB PeBa midsole for a 1st run and compare to the trainer Endorphin Speed with which it shares the same midsole foam but substitutes a nylon plate for the graphite polymer. 

Molly Seidel wore the Pro to 2nd place in the US Olympic Trials and a ticket to the Olympic Marathon in her first marathon ever.

I compare to the Endorphin Speed and other new "super shoes" in the video. I really like the more forward Speed Roll to toe off from the plate which gives a less flat ride feel than competitors in the carbon plated game, more "natural" as Saucony's marketing says.

Pro weighs 7.5 oz / 221 g has a big 27.5 mm forefoot / 35. 5 mm heel stack, 8 mm drop 
Pro will release April 15 so before July when the Speed and Shift, a heavier more maximal PWRUN TPU/ EVA blend midsole trainer release.

Hey Sam! May I ask for a first Next% (or even Alphafly) comparison? Is Nike still the topdog or is Saucony the first brand who managed to create something on par with the Vaporflys?

All the best!
