Evaluation On the surface, the updated Hurricane looks a lot like its predecessor, but when you look deeper you see that an already fine shoe has been improved further. The most important change is in the midsole, where the second midsole density has been extended upwards in the rearfoot. This makes the Hurricane more stable. Also, while it still has the rearfoot GRID device, the configuration of the GRID’s Hytrel strings has been altered.
In its predecessor, the strings that protruded through the midsole had been evenly spread out. Now they’re thicker and closer together on the medial side of the shoe (for better stability), and thinner and more spread out on the lateral side (for a softer ride). The result: weartesters noticed the new Hurricane’s softer landing.
In the forefoot, some of the rubber has been removed and replaced with a more flexible configuration, similar to Asics’s DuoSole. Saucony is also using more open mesh in the Hurricane’s forefoot to make it slightly wider.
In short The 3D Hurricane has never been a light shoe, but it is smooth, stable and built to last. The softer cushioning in this new version makes it more luxurious than before, which should widen its appeal to incorporate lighter runners.
