Saucony ProGrid Hurricane 15, $140
10.4 oz. (men); 8.3 oz. (women)
8mm heel-toe offset
FIT: The fit of the Hurricane is similar to previous models with a secure heel (thanks to a more rigid external heel counter) and very connected midfoot and a slightly wider toe box.
FEEL: True to its heritage, the latest incarnation of the Hurricane remains a durable, ultra-stable, well-cushioned trainer. It retains the 8mm heel-toe offset, cushy interior and multi-density midsole geared at reducing overpronation.
RIDE: Our testers approved of the firm but smooth, shock-absorbing ride but noted the shoe was anything but light or nimble. The wide platform offers plenty of support, while the medial post offers a moderate amount of stability. The heel-toe roll-through is smoother than in previous versions, thanks to a more decoupled heel and deeper forefoot flex grooves.
