Saucony Redeemer vs. Saucony Hurricane ISO review

Saucony Redeemer offers maximum pronation control and a very plush ride to severe overpronators. Saucony Hurricane ISO offers lots of stability in a lightweight package.

NEW! Saucony Redeemer vs. Saucony Hurricane ISO 2 and Saucony Redeemer vs. Saucony Hurricane ISO 3

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

ADVERTISEMENTS

The Saucony Redeemer The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com and the Saucony Hurricane ISO share the commonality that they both have ISOFIT overlays in their upper that wrap the midfoot around socklike mesh.

This already adds tons of support to their uppers.

Then at the back of the shoes, they both come with a Support Frame to lock your heel down on the platform and keep it in place.

The only minor difference can be found in the overlay at the front of the shoes where one can see that the one of the Saucony Redeemer is a bit more sturdy and cups the toes well to provide more support in that area.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com might provide a bit more comfort than the Saucony Redeemer in the bunion area due to the placement of the overlays.

All in all, both running shoes come with a very supportive upper. One does not stick out above the other, other than the fact that the Saucony Redeemer might accommodate larger feet better than the Saucony Hurricane ISO.

Similarities between the Saucony Hurricane ISO and the Saucony Redeemer continue in the midsole, where both implement the same type of material to deliver heel-to-toe cushioning.

They both also have a crash pad under the heel that runs till the midfoot to provide a soft touchdown that is followed by a smooth transition to toe-off.

However, the Saucony Redeemer has a midsole that is 5 to 6 mm thicker than the Saucony Hurricane ISO, which should boost the amount of cushioning provided by the Saucony Redeemer, but also make it heavier and stiffer.

Running shoe lab tests confirm that the Saucony Redeemer is much more cushy than the Saucony Hurricane ISO, especially in the heel.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO has a very cushy forefoot that is not far off from that of the Saucony Redeemer, but its heel might feel firm.

The Saucony Redeemer provides almost a maximum amount of cushioning, so should deliver an overall very soft ride.

The two Saucony stability running shoes are also similar in that they both have a long medial post to control overpronation and stop your foot from rolling too far inward.

However, the medial post of the Saucony Redeemer runs higher and is reinforced by four pillars in the foam to add more stability and support.

So you can expect to get a stronger degree of pronation control from the Saucony Redeemer than you would get from the Saucony Hurricane ISO.

The rubber outsole of the Saucony Hurricane ISO differs somewhat from that of the Saucony Redeemer, but this is primarily due to the space that the large medial post takes up.

The rubber in the forefoot of both the Saucony Redeemer and the Saucony Hurricane ISO have a fan shape, and the rubber compartments under the crash pads are pretty similar in separation provided for shock absorption and dissipation.

Running shoe lab tests show that the Saucony Redeemer is a very stiff running shoe for both men and women, but such stiffness is generally appreciated by runners who are heavy and who need lots of support.

The Saucony Hurricane ISO turns out to be stiff for men, but has an average flexibility for women.

The women's version of the Saucony Hurricane ISO weighs approximately 8.7 oz (247 grams) and the Saucony Redeemer weighs approximately 10.7 oz (303 grams).

The men's version of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 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 looking for a very stable, soft, smooth, and supportive ride, the Saucony Redeemer is definitely worth looking into.

And if you are a moderate overpronator who is looking for a very stable and supportive running shoe, but that is not over-the-top, then the Saucony Hurricane ISO might be the one for you. Just remember that it might be less suitable if you are a heel-striker.

Note: The weight of a running shoe depends on the size of the running shoe, so any weights mentioned in this review may differ from the weight of the running shoe you choose to wear. Running shoes of the same size were compared for this review.
