Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 vs. Saucony Omni 15 review

Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 offers stability and support in a well-cushioned package. Saucony Omni 15 provides a very stable and supportive ride with a good amount of cushioning.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Omni 15 fall in the same category of stability running shoes for overpronators who need quite a bit of stability and support.

ADVERTISEMENTS

In terms of stability and support, Saucony places the Saucony Omni 15 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com higher than the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

But in terms of cushioning, the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is placed higher than the Saucony Omni 15 although both can be seen as plush running shoes.

While the Saucony Omni 15 does not come with ISOFIT overlays like the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3, the overlays on the Saucony Omni 15 provide a similar amount of support around the midfoot and are placed far back like the overlays on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com.

In addition, the overlays on both running shoes cover the sides of the heel to provide some support there too.

The forefoot has been kept pretty open on both the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Omni 15, but unlike the Saucony Omni 15, the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 does not come with overlays on its toe box.

That is because it uses a type of mesh that provides some structure and reduces the need for overlays.

In any case, the overlays that are on the toe box of the Saucony Omni 15 have been kept light and do not contain stitches that could cause irritation.

Finally, the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 comes with a sturdy ring that wraps the heel to provide additional support, while the Saucony Omni 15 comes with normal overlays and has two sturdy pieces at the sides of the heel to lock it in.

Both running shoes should be able to keep your foot on the platform and provide enough support around the midfoot, but the overall construction of the upper of the Saucony Omni 15 is a bit sturdier and provides a bit more support than that of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

Both the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Omni 15 come with an EVERUN topsole of extra cushioning.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 also comes with an EVERUN landing zone that has been integrated into the midsole under the heel.

The Saucony Omni 15 still has a tradional crash pad under the heel, but this also provides a good connection to the midfoot just like in the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

So both running shoes should be able to provide you with soft landings and then a smooth transition to toe-off thereafter.

Both running shoes provide a lot of heel and forefoot cushioning. Saucony decribes the Saucony Omni 15 as providing extra support while maintaining great cushioning.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is described as providing the best combination of cushioning and support.

Speaking of support, both running shoes come with a long medial post that helps stop the feet of overpronators from rolling too far inward.

The medial post goes higher in the Saucony Omni 15 than in the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3, which is why the Saucony Omni 15 is expected to provide a stronger degree of pronation control than the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

The outsoles of the two running shoes look quite similar to each other with a good amount of flex grooves in the forefoot with a zigzag pattern.

Despite the good amount of separation in the outsole, both the Saucony Omni and the Saucony Hurricane tend to be on the stiffer end of the spectrum.

Stiffness is good for stability and can be dealt better with by bigger runners, so both running shoes would be suitable for such runners.

The women's version of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 weighs approximately 9.7 oz (275 grams), and the Saucony Omni 15 for women weighs 9.0 oz (255 grams).

The men's versions of the running shoes weigh 10.9 oz (309 grams) and 10.6 oz (301 grams), respectively, with the Saucony Omni 15 being the lighter one.

If you are an overpronator who is looking for a soft ride from a stability running shoe that provides a good amount of stability and support, either the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 or the Saucony Omni 15 would be a good candidate.

The Saucony Omni 15 is good for runners who require a lot of stability and support that comes close to the amount that a motion control running shoe provides.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 provides a more moderate amount of support compared to the Saucony Omni 15 and increases the amount of comfort you get in the upper.
