    At Saucony, we exist for runners. Runners inspire us, bring us new ideas, force us to be better. They drive our design and engineering. They keep us competitive.  They keep us hungry. They keep us honest.  Whether it’s in a conference room or out on a lunchtime run, we’re constantly talking about and arguing about our sport, runners and the products that fuel them. We love our products and we run in everything we make.  This focus and passion fuels us as we strive to create the best running shoes and apparel on the planet.
