Saucony Omni 15 vs. Saucony Redeemer review

Saucony Redeemer offers maximum pronation control and a very plush ride to severe overpronators. Saucony Omni 15 provides a very stable, soft, and supportive ride.

The Saucony Omni 15 and the Saucony Redeemer are stability running shoes, but the Saucony Redeemer is seen as a motion control running shoe that provides more support than the Saucony Omni 15.

ADVERTISEMENTS

The uppers of the Saucony Omni 15 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com and the Saucony Redeemer are similar in that they provide sturdy overlays that wrap both the midfoot and the heel.

The main difference is that the overlays on the Saucony Redeemer The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com are ISOFIT overlays and cover a larger area of the upper than the stitched-on overlays on the Saucony Omni 15.

They both also have a Support Frame at the back that cups the heel and provides a bit more support behind the heel.

However, this Support Frame covers a larger area in the Saucony Redeemer than in the Saucony Omni 15, where it is mostly located at the sides of the heel.

Both the Saucony Redeemer and the Saucony Omni 15 have lighter no-sew overlays running on the toe box, but because the sturdier overlays are more pulled back on the Saucony Omni 15, the Saucony Omni 15 may provide a somewhat looser and more comfortable fit in the toe box.

All in all, both the Saucony Omni 15 and the Saucony Redeemer provide a good amount of support through their uppers, with the Saucony Redeemer providing just a notch more support above the Saucony Omni 15.

Both the Saucony Redeemer and the Saucony Omni 15 are supposed to provide runners with a supportive but also plush ride.

Saucony says that the Saucony Redeemer provides more cushioning than the Saucony Omni 15, and this is corroborated by running shoe lab tests.

The main difference between the midsoles is that the Saucony Omni 15 comes with an EVERUN topsole, while the Saucony Redeemer does not.

However, this does not prevent the Saucony Redeemer from being more cushy than the Saucony Omni 15. But the differences between the cushioning of the two running shoes is minimal.

Both the Saucony Omni 15 and the Saucony Redeemer have a cushy heel and a very cushy forefoot, and the cushioning in both running shoes is almost to the max.

So whether you choose the Saucony Redeemer or the Saucony Omni 15, you should be able to get an overall plush ride.

The big difference between the midsoles lies in the way the medial post that provides pronation control to stop your foot from rolling too far inward is constructed.

The medial post of the Saucony Redeemer is more blocky, a bit longer, and contains TPU pillars that increase the amount of support without making the running shoe bulky.

The medial post of the Saucony Omni 15 is somewhat more traditional and has a slightly elevated section just under the arch that increases the amount of support.

Both running shoes start pronation control by slowing down movement through the use of a crash pad on the lateral side under the heel.

The crash pad connects well to the forefoot in both running shoes but runs slightly further into the forefoot in the Saucony Omni 15. This should benefit the smoothness of your ride when going from touchdown to toe-off.

When you look at the outsoles of the running shoes, you will also see that the Saucony Redeemer has a straighter platform than the Saucony Omni 15, so the Saucony Redeemer is more suitable for runners who have large or flat feet.

What you will also see is that both running shoes provide a good amount of ground contact and their rubber compartments are well separated.

You can also see that the medial post of the Saucony Redeemer is wider than that of the Saucony Omni 15, which again indicates that the amount of pronation control is stronger in the Saucony Redeemer.

Running shoe lab tests show that the Saucony Redeemer is quite stiff for both men and women. This stiffness can typically be handled well and is appreciated by heavier runners.

The Saucony Omni 15 is a bit more flexible than the Saucony Redeemer but not by much. If you are a women, you should feel the difference in flexibility between the two running shoes.

The women's version of the Saucony Omni 15 weighs approximately 9.0 oz (255 grams), and the Saucony Redeemer weighs approximately 10.7 oz (303 grams).

The men's version of the Saucony Omni 15 weighs about 10.6 oz (301 grams), and the Saucony Redeemer for men weighs 12.7 oz (360 grams).

If you are a severe overpronator who requires a lot of stability, support, and pronation control, you may want to look into the Saucony Redeemer.

However, if you want something lighter that still provides tons of stability and support in addition to a soft ride, the Saucony Omni 15 might be able to provide what you need.
