Whether trying to increase mileage or set a personal best, both new and seasoned runners alike share one common dream: to run faster, not harder. Global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony today announced that the award-winning Endorphin Collection, with the addition of the all new Endorphin Trail, is back to make that dream a speedy reality. The latest rendition of the Endorphin Collection, engineered with elite athletes and proven by personal bests, takes the brand’s signature SPEEDROLL™ Technology off-road for the very first time with the Endorphin Trail. With a fine-tuned fit, enhanced heel support and the brand’s ultralight PWRRUN PB™ cushioning, the entire Endorphin Collection delivers a locked-in feeling for a more secure, efficient and effortless performance on the road or trail. All four Endorphin styles, and beginning this fall, the brand’s entire performance line, contain recycled upper materials.

The Endorphin Collection includes the Endorphin Pro 2 with limitless speed; the award-winning Endorphin Speed 2, a do-it-all trainer and racer; the Endorphin Shift 2 with streamlined stability; and the Endorphin Trail, taking speed to a whole new elevation. The Endorphin Collection will be available at select running speciality retailers globally and at saucony.com beginning with the Endorphin Pro 2 on June 1; the Endorphin Speed 2 on June 15; the Endorphin Shift 2 on August 3 and Endorphin Trail on July 15.

“These are the shoes that dreams are made of,” said Shawn Hoy, vice president of global product for Saucony.

“From the race-ready Pro, to the award-winning Speed, to the feel-good miles of the Shift, we have proven that we can make running faster and even more fun, and now, that includes trail runners too. We knew we had something special with the Endorphin Collection, but even in early discussions with consumers and retailers, we felt so much demand for a similarly fast and fun experience on the trails. We’re excited to introduce runners to the Endorphin Trail, and whether they choose it for its performance capabilities or distinct look, we love the idea that it might help even more people fall in love with trail running.”

Introducing the Endorphin Trail

From weekend trailblazers to FKT (fastest known times) trail fanatics, trail running continues to experience tremendous growth, according to the International Trail Running Association. The Endorphin Trail lands at a time when runners hitting the dirt are demanding the speedy and dynamic ride that they are accustomed to in their road shoes. The Endorphin Trail delivers, blending the brand’s SPEEDROLL ™ Technology with a thick stack of ultra-responsive, featherweight PWRRUN PB™ cushioning that propels the runner forward effortlessly. Its secure fit, grippy PWRTRAC™ outsole, and versatile ascent/descent-friendly lug configuration are all designed to give the runner ultimate confidence on whatever terrain they meet.
