Smooth transitions and a secure fit combine in Saucony Omni 12 running shoes to deliver a super-efficient and comfortable running environment. The marble design on the midfoot provides unique style and also brings attention to the all-new PowerGrid™ heel-to-toe insert that absorbs impact, centers the foot, and distributes pressures in the forefoot. Ideal for runners that require moderate-to-high stability.
Upper: Flat laces reduce pressure points and irritation on the top of the foot. Padded tongue and heel collar enhance instep comfort. Breathable mesh enhances flexibility and ventilation. Synthetic overlays delivers optimal support.
Midsole: Arch Lock™ lightweight stretch materials adapt to your foot to provide a snug and supportive midfoot fit. Support Frame™ molded support locks the heel in place for a secure, stable fit. HydraMAX™ collar lining material combines superior moisture wicking properties with a plush feel for comfort. ComfortLite Sockliner™ molded sockliner contoured to cradle the heel, support the arch, and reduce peak pressures in the forefoot. PowerGrid™ heel to toe insert centers the foot, absorbs impact, and distributes pressure resulting in an exceptionally smooth and responsive ride. Dual Density S SL™ EVA maximizes rebound and durability while minimizing weight. SRC™ Impact Zone provides durable shock absorption in the heel crashpad to help reduce torque and allow for a smoother transition into the midfoot.
Outsole: iBR+™ is 33% lighter and provides more cushioning compared to standard blown rubber. XT-900™ carbon rubber outsole material offers exceptional traction properties without sacrificing durability.
Runner's World Editor's Choice
"The top-rated shoe in this guide by our wear-testers, the Omni 12 scored high for comfort and ride. Bigger runners, in particular, initially questioned whether a shoe that felt so light could stand up to the pounding they dish out. 'I need a shoe that provides support,' says Vincent Miller, a 213-pound runner from New York City. 'This shoe has good support and solid cushioning—not too much, not too thin.' Even though it weighs only 10.5 ounces (for a men's size 9), the Omni has a slew of stability features and foam underfoot—its forefoot, an inch thick, was the softest of any shoe in this guide. Of course, when you have so much underfoot, flexibility can be an issue. This shoe is an improvement over the 11, but it's still a bit on the stiff side."
