If you use customer orthotics then this is a great shoe in which to use them. It has a deeper upper and a broader fit which allows ample room for your insoles and delivers great cushioning.

  • Negative
  • Its such a specific shoe that there's no real downside

First impressions

A shoe that can accomodate the higher volume or broader foot with ease and provides a very stable platform to accompany you on long training runs.

The Echelon is a very good shoe but sits towards the bottom end of Saucony's neutral cushioning offering below the Freedom, the Freedom ISO 2 and the Saucony king of cushioning, the Triumph 17.


Great cushioning and extreme comfort is guaranteed thanks to the EVERUN midsole. Saucony's developed cushioning provides the shoe with long-term durable cushioning that is built to feel the same no matter how many miles you have clocked up in the shoe. Towards the bottom, the EVA is firm, which means that shocks are absorbed instantly and prevented from reaching the foot. Once absorbed, the energy is returned as rebound, meaning that you will gain an additional spring in your step. The further up you go, the EVA changes and is less densely packed. This means that it is more cushioned, and as a result, when downward force is applied foot it will gently cushion the foot. Extremely flexible, the sole is able to bend which will improve the smoothness of the ride, including assisting with takeoffs, landings and other transitions. The shoe uses an 8mm offset, resulting in an even distribution of energy between the heel and forefoot. This will mean that the foot will stay in a more even and stable position. The insole that comes into direct contact with the foot is durable, smooth and soft, which will provide long lasting and anti-chafing comfort, and the shoe is also able to accomodate another insole.


Well made and with plenty of volume, this shoe is a godsend for those with wider feet or high insteps. 


The outsole compliments the midsole and overall aim of the shoe in that it helps keep things stable and proves a durable solution.


A good, solid all-round shoe providing excellent cushioning and a stable ride. It you are an orthotic user, it's an excellent option to consider.
