Saucony Life on the Run: White Noise Collection






For Summer 2018, performance running brand Saucony is launching its Life on the Run: White Noise Collection. 

The new range takes inspiration from the mind-clearing effects of a good run and celebrates the way exercise, and running specifically, can help you break through the stresses and strains of modern life and help regain emotional and psychological balance.
EMEA Product Line Manager Isabel Gerhaeuser said “The distinctive speckled pattern on the upper of every shoe of the collection is a physical representation of white noise, and the coloured midsoles reference the clarity of thought that running brings.
As a company of runners, we all recognise the power of a lunchtime run to reinvigorate the soul and reset the mind before the working afternoon begins. This line is inspired by that process”.
The White Noise collection spans the most popular styles in the Saucony technical line. Every model is packed with the same running shoe technology as the regular models, including Saucony’s exclusive EVERUN midsole - providing continuous cushioning from the start to the end of the run. 
Leading the line is the new Ride ISO, Saucony’s best-selling running shoe, which for the first time includes the ISOFIT upper technology previously only utilised in top-end models. ISOFIT wraps around the foot ensuring great fit as the laces are pulled, whatever your foot shape.
The line also features the brand’s latest development, FORMFIT, which reduces pressure on the foot every time it hits the ground.  FORMFIT is three adaptable layers of foam which cradle the foot whilst putting the Topsole cushioning as close to the foot as possible for maximum pressure dispersion.
Dr Ben Martynoga, a British Neuroscientist explains that the feeling of escape from running is one proven from research rather than simply from anecdotes from millions of runners around the world.
“New studies present clear evidence that aerobic exercise such as running can trigger heightened activity within parts of the brain responsible for our ability to pay attention, to get away from distractions, to give us clarity of mind and to help us get out of the noise of daily life.”
The Life on the Run White Noise collection consists of eight styles, including the award-winning Triumph ISO, Hurricane ISO, Guide ISO and Kinvara 9.
The line is available from selected retailers around Europe and is priced from €120 - €160 (£100 - £140).

The line is available now at selected retailers
