Saucony Men's Endorphin Speed US$125.99 (~A$171) Delivered (RRP A$259) @ Running Lab

530
ORDERNOW10

These are the best running shoes I've ever worn. If you're interested in running I couldn't recommend more.

I couldn't find these anywhere in Australia in my size but after too much time spent on Google I found that the Running Lab in Michigan recently restocked. Delivery took 3 weeks to Sydney.

More info is available on the site: https://www.runninglabstore.com/saucony-mens-endorphin-speed...

    would make me look like a fish out of the water

    Fantastic running shoe. Not for beginners, but very accommodating and made to run fast in.

      Honest question - in what sense do you mean "not for beginners"?

      I don't consider myself a "runner", but I do a good 2-3 KM as cardio in the gym, 3 times a week, after a workout. Would this pair be suitable for someone like me?

        Honestly I reckon they'd be overkill and probably not designed for what you need.

        You might see some advantage in the carbon plate for keeping your cadence high but it'd be marginal and I'd be more worried about protecting and cushioning your feet/knees than have little plate trampolines in your shoes. Plus, with that little running, you probably want to focus on your base training as a cool down. Save some dough and get a moderate comfy shoe for under $100 unless you start training for an event.

        these are both neutral shoes but there's regularly deals on stability too.

        there are regularly better deals but that's all I can find right now

        Older flagships go on special every year as the new model comes in.

          Wow cheers mate! That was definitely much more than i hoped for as a response. I guess i'm keeping my regular Nike's then :)

          This shoe does not have a carbon plate. It's a nylon plate. The endorphin pro has a carbon plate.

        Just saw this reply, sorry!

        Looks like it's already been answered thoroughly. For gym treadmill sessions of 3km, any comfortable running shoe will do :)

        The speeds have a poly plate in the forefoot.
        So you need to focus your stride and footstrike into the forefoot to get the most energy return. They also have a nice rocker feel, which sort of encourages faster paces.

          Does this work for heel striker though?

          • +1 vote

            @Woody123: No - my understanding of non casual runners is someone who is constantly "sprinting" to achieve sub 4 min/km every run over 5km+ and therefore is only running on the ball of the foot.

            •  

              @jrad0: I'm sub 4 min over 5km+ heel striker

        You’re not doing your workouts a favour by doing cardio afterwards.
        Check the research

    •  

      I run 5-6 km weekly on suburban streets, averaging 10-11KM/h. Are these shoes overkill for me?

      Also, I'm not 100% sure about my sizing; is it safer to go half a size bigger in this case?

  • +4 votes

    Not for casual runners. These shoes have a (non carbon) plate and are for very up tempo days and race days

    •  

      Yup I agree. They very fast, and you'll throw the shoe very fast too from wearing out.

      Not for casual runners? Do you need a license to strap these to your feet? Lol

      Yes, but I wouldn't recommend them for insecure men.

    I run 10km daily. Am I an essential runner? Can I get a jab of Saucony?

    Or shall I wait for an ultraboost jab?

    • +1 vote

      Ultraboost are a great marketing job. Have a look at any serious or semi serious running group, and see how few people wear Ultraboost.

      Depends on your age :P

    "You have to learn how to run correctly in these shoes"

    Umm, I thought it best to learn how to run as a human being, not be dictated to run by a shoe? I'm genuinely asking btw. I'm still using my (barely used :P) Adidas Bounce running shoes from 2008. Scientifically they found it more gimmicky than actually working but either way I'm pretty sure my age and fitness is more limiting than the shoe.

      I think alot of people (including myself) think running is something you do naturally from kids to elite athletes.
      But elite athletes run with 'better/ more efficient form' than your untrained athlete. Although running form may be part genetic you can do drills to improve your form.

      Re these shoes have carbon plate technology which is reported to improve performance by upto 4%. This improvement probably applies more to elite athletes who are running at a speed where they benefit from the plate.

      I think the thing with technique is that the shoes have plate at certain parts of the sole so you need to land your foot the right way to get the benefit. But i would say you learn to run to use the shoe. You are better of finding a shoe which suits your style of running.

        These shoes don't have the carbon plate. The Endorphin Pro do.

        •  

          Yeah your right!
          Thanks. Just had a look at specs and its a nylon plate if i read it correctly.

          But my understanding same concept of providing increased rebound.

          And I probably should have mentioned that the 4% boost is quote for nike next% carbon plate shoes. Not sure that all other such shoes have the same benefit.

          •  

            @Gimli: You would use these for training tempos and intervals, and the Endorphin Pro's for race day. Similar to the Nike Peg Turbo's vs Next%.

  •  

    Thoughts compared to the Endorphin Pros?

  •  

    Can anyone compare these to other brands (for sizing)? Normally need a wide fit unless they’re brooks!

  •  

    Possible to run under 4 minute km’s in this?

    •  

      you really need to pick up the pace mate

    • +3 votes

      Yes if you can. No if you can't.

  •  

    I'm a 2e to 4e.. anyone know if these are wide enough?

    •  

      They won't be. D width.

    •  

      I'm 2E and comfortable in my Endo Speeds. Not recommended if you have overpronation tho.

  •  

    Anyone know what these are like for sizing? Couple of reviews have noted they are slightly narrow so I might go half a size up

    •  

      US 11 for all Nike and went US 11 for these as well. I have slightly wider feet but US 11 has been fine. Half up would also seem okay as well.

    These are pretty strictly for neutral runners @ tempo speeds of faster

    At base speeds they're wobbly as and unless your stride is midfoot you're going to roll around on that heel which isnt good for your anything.

    If you're an efficient runner tho, these bad boys are some if the better higher drop shoes you will get

  •  

    Does anyone place any order? What additional charges are they?

    •  

      None

    •  

      I was hoping to order but held off as I did not want to risk being hit with unexpected additional charges.

        Received mine today - no unexpected charges, under 3 weeks delivery time to Melbourne.

        •  

          Glad to hear, although I already bit the bullet and went with an Australian sports store to be safe. Paid a bit more (not the ozbargain way, I know!) but very happy. I actually got the latest released version - Saucony Endorphin Speed 2. Definitely for serious/faster runners but I think I fit that category and love them so far!

    Thanks OP. Bought a pair. Though I couldn’t get the code to work. With the latest price drop it was 127.99 delivered, still a good price.

    Edit: USD that is.
