Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 offers stability and support in a well-cushioned package. Saucony Redeemer offers maximum pronation control and a very plush ride to severe overpronators.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Redeemer are both for runners who require a large amount of stability and support.

ADVERTISEMENTS

The uppers of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com and the Saucony Redeemer are quite similar in construction.

They both come with stitched-on overlays that wrap the midfoot, but the overlays of the Saucony Redeemer The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com have more stitches and come further forward than those on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

The overlays of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 are also softer and have been kept back to open up the forefoot for comfort.

Therefore, you will have much more room for large bunions in the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 than in the Saucony Redeemer.

The overlays around the midfoot continue around the heel, but the wrapping is more continuous on the Saucony Redeemer than on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3, where an external heel counter takes over.

The Saucony Redeemer also comes with an external heel counter that covers a larger area and cups the heel better than the one on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

Finally, instead of structured mesh like on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3, the Saucony Redeemer comes with extra no-sew overlays on the toe box and a stitched-on toe cap. The toe cap on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 does not contain stitches.

All in all, the upper of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 aims to provide comfort while still maintaining the elements that are necessary to give overpronators the support they require.

On the other hand, the Saucony Redeemer maximizes the amount of support in the upper so will give a more secure and supportive fit.

The midsoles of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Redeemer differ in technologies used.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 implements newer midsole materials than the Sauony Redeemer and comes with an EVERUN topsole and landing zone. This enhances the amount of cushioning provided by the running shoe.

The Saucony Redeemer, on the other hand, comes with a more traditional crash pad under the heel and does not have extra cushioning at the top of the midsole.

However, according to running shoe lab tests, the Saucony Redeemer still provides almost a maximum amount of cushioning in both the heel and the forefoot, and to both men and women. The amount of heel cushioning is just a tad less than the amount of forefoot cushioning.

According to Saucony, both the Saucony Redeemer and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 can be seen as plush running shoes, although Saucony rates the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 as being a notch softer than the Saucony Redeemer.

Where the Saucony Redeemer wins is in the support department, because it is classified as a motion control running shoe, while the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is a stability running shoe.

Both running shoes come with a medial post that helps stop the feet of overpronators from rolling too far inward.

And while both medial posts are quite long, the medial post of the Saucony Redeemer runs higher and contains TPU pillars to reinforce the post and provide yet more support.

So in terms of stability and support, you will get a bit more from the Saucony Redeemer than from the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3, but both running shoes can be considered to be very stable running shoes.

The rubber outsoles of the two running shoes differ in construction and layout, largely because the Saucony Redeemer has a wider and straighter platform and because the medial post takes up a large part of the outsole.

The flex groove pattern also differs in the forefoot and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is a bit more segmented than the Saucony Redeemer.

Neither the Saucony Hurricane nor the Saucony Redeemer is known to be flexible a running shoe, but stiffness is generally preferred by larger runners and runner who require lots of support.

The women's version of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 weighs approximately 9.7 oz (275 grams), and the Saucony Redeemer for women weighs 10.7 oz (303 grams).

The men's versions of the running shoes weigh 10.9 oz (309 grams) and 12.7 oz (360 grams), respectively, with the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 being the lighter one.

If you are an overpronator who requires a lot of stability and support from a running shoe, you cannot go wrong with either the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 or the Saucony Redeemer.

However, the Saucony Redeemer is better for bigger runners who overpronate excessively. If you know that you need lots of support but not an over-the-top amount, you may want to look into the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.
