Saucony Omni 19 Intro
It's comparable to the Brooks Adrenaline, the Asics GT-2000 lineup, and the New Balance 860.
Saucony has removed the isofit top system (and its entire lineup) and reverted to incremental numbering.
It's the most noticeable change, but the whole shoe has had a facelift, including Saucony's shiny new PWRRUN midsole.
Saucony Omni 19 first impressions
The shoes felt comfortable immediately out of the box. The upper was snug where it needed to be and roomy in the toe box. the sole was stiff in my hands, but light and soft on my feet.
The colourway is somewhat toned down compared to other Saucony shoes coming out this year, but I liked the look. It's something I can pair with my civilian clothes and not feel ridiculous wearing them with jeans.
Plus, it was nice to see reflective accents! Why do I feel the shoe companies are starting to deviate from this?
Saucony Omni 19 sole unit
The design of the outsole gave a lot of control when landing and taking off. It is almost identical to the Omni ISO 2.
This is mostly soft blown rubber with a small band of firmer material along the medial side to match with the release in the midsole.
I found the outsole to provide exceptional traction in any weather condition I have used it in. Bad weather was not a problem for me and I was in full control at all times.
In terms of durability, I was very impressed. I put almost 100 miles on my feet during testing and their wear was minimal.
The midsole is Saucony's new midsole compound, PWRRUN. This is another foam compound that has another claim to be much lighter than everyone else. Funny enough, the shoe is slightly heavier than last year!
Buzzwords and affirmations aside, the material was light and bouncy. He helped absorb the impact and had enough rebound to give a nice push.
The stability part of the shoe is a mid-point display that runs from my heel to the midfoot. It is much firmer than the rest of the shoe, but they complement each other well.
The midsole and harder rubber band on the outsole weren't too aggressive to fix my stride, but it's definitely a stability shoe.
I could feel the shoe helping to guide my foot subtly at all times, especially when I was tired towards the end of some of my longer runs.
Overall, it provided a very smooth ride. He really excelled on my easy days and my longer, slower getaways. The stack height and 10mm offset made me mostly land and take off on the midfoot
I found that the weight of the shoe hampered my speed days, but it really is an everyday rider shoe, not the one I will be using for training.
Saucony Omni 19 top unit
ISOfit is gone and replaced with a new synthetic mesh. The material breathed wonderfully in the humid summer heat of Maryland.
It was incredibly comfortable with a plush material, but it breathed well; especially during the hottest and humid months of a Baltimore summer.
The tongue of the shoe was rather thick and soft. This is a bellows design, with semi-attached to the rest of the rod. He never bent or made me readjust for a better fit. It rested perfectly under the laces.
The fit is true to size and I didn't find any issues with it being too tight. The toe area also offers plenty of real estate.
The heel is pretty stiff which helped to lock the back of my foot into the shoe but it's definitely not flexible in that area. Overall the shoe fits like a glove.
Conclusion of the Saucony Omni 19
It was good to see the Omni again as I hadn't run there in a while. I really wish the ISOfit system took off, as I have enjoyed in other Saucony shoes that I have tested over the past two years.
All is not lost as it was one of the most comfortable shoes I tested in 2020.
The comfort really made him excel during my recovery days and my longer, slower runs. The softness of it really made it a pleasure to run when I just wanted to get around.
While the midsole compound was light, it was still too heavy for me to really push it at any speed I tried to put on it. Is this a deciding factor? certainly not.
As I mentioned before, this is an everyday driver's shoe.
If you're looking for something that sits in the middle of the road when it comes to stability, the Omni is for you.
We purchased a pair of Saucony Omni 19 from runningwarehouse using our own money. This did not influence the outcome of this review, written after running more than 50 miles in them.
If you’ve never run before or you’ve had a long break from running, it can feel intimidating to get out there and hit the pavement. But if you get familiar with some basic information about running and follow a beginner’s schedule, you’ll be well on your way to starting a new running habit.
At your visit, share your running plan and goals with your doctor and have him/her assess your plan and any potential health issues. If you have had any previous injuries or issues, make sure your doctor is aware of them, and ask if he or she has any suggestions on how to prevent a recurrence.
Visit a specialty course store to get professionnel advice on buying the right course shoes. An professionnel at the store will look at your feet, watch you run, and make recommendations based on your foot type and course style. If you already have course shoes that you like, but you’ve had them for a while, you may still need to get new ones. Running in worn-out running shoes can also lead to injury. You should replace them every 300 to 400 miles.
Beyond running shoes, you don’t need much more than some comfortable exercise clothes to get started. If you’re course outdoors, make sure you follow some basic tips for how to dress for hot weather course and cold weather running, so you stay safe and comfortable.
As your résistance improves and you start course longer, you may want to invest in some technical fabric course clothes and other basic running gear, such as a running belt, good running socks, and a running hat. Some runners also like to have a course watch to track their times and distances.
Before you get started with running, get familiar with how to do the run/walk method. Most beginner runners start out using a run/walk technique because they don’t have the résistance or sport to run for extended periods of time. The run/walk method involves running for a bermuda secteur and then taking a walk break. As you continue with a run/walk program, the goal is to extend the amount of time you’re running and reduce your walking time. Of course, some runners find walk breaks to be so beneficial that they continue taking them even as their endurance and sport improves.
Before you start any running workout, though, you need to make sure you warm up properly. A good warm-up signals to your body that it will have to start sérieux soon. By slowly raising your heart rate, the warm-up also helps minimize stress on your heart when you start your run. Start your runs with a brisk walk, followed by very easy jogging for a few minutes. You can also do some warm-up exercises. Always end your workout with a slow five-minute jog or walk to cool down. The cool-down allows your heart rate and blood pressure to fall gradually.
Use your breathing as your guide when course. You should be able to carry on a conversation while running, and your breathing shouldn’t be heavy. Don’t worry about your pace per mile—if you can pass the ' talk test ' and speak in complete sentences without gasping for air, then you’re moving at the right speed.
Make sure you’re breathing in through your nose and mouth, and breathing out through your mouth. Proper breathing and taking deep belly breaths will help you avoid annoying side stitches, or cramps in the abdomen area.
Drink water at the end of your workouts to rehydrate. If it’s hot and humid, you should also drink some water ( about four to six ounces ) halfway through your workouts.
Post-run is a great time to stretch and work on improving your flexibility because your groupes de muscles will be warmed up. It’s also a relaxing way to end a workout. Try some of these stretches that target particular areas that frequently get tight during and after running.
