Run Strong With Saucony

The Saucony Story

best foot forwardWith over 115 years of success in the making, it’s no wonder Saucony is a brand that’s in it for the long run. If you’re a committed runner of any sort, you’re well aware of how great Saucony shoes look and feel when racking up the miles. However, who would have known that the brand started off in 1898 on the high banks of a Pennsylvania creek as nothing more than a kids’ footwear factory?

Since the early 1900s, Saucony started producing shoes like “carpet slippers,” ice skates, and bowling shoes and army boots, until designers finally found their niche in producing top-tier running shoes. If you’re really intrigued, read more about Saucony’s history at their official website:

Whether you’re an avid runner or novice in need of a great pair of kicks, look no further. We’ve got all the best styles from Saucony right here at ShoeMall!
