Awarded our Best in Test 2017 - read the full review here.
It takes quite a bit to wow us here at Accelerate. Of course, every now and then there's a shoe which might present the next level in comfort, or grip, maybe fit, or perhaps responsiveness under foot.
Imagine then - a shoe which appears to have ticked every box and in the field, outdone itself on all surfaces.
We are excited to present 'Koa', the latest off-road shoe offering from Saucony.
Boasting a wide fit, with plenty of structure, but only weighing in at 292g for all its strength of construction. A speed lacing system. Sewn in tongue for debris protection. 4mm drop from 22mm at heel to 18 at the toe, meaning an icredible cushioned ride. throw in a top sole of 'Everun' for good measure and every step becomes an easy hop, skip and jump, with a feeling that you could run all day!
Traction is impressive also, with a studded outsole, but 3.5mm depth means nothing so aggressive it can't still hold on wet pavements and tarmac when stying closer to home or taking in a longer journeys over mixed terrain. The sticky PWR TRAC (power track) rubber makes light wirk of latching into anything soft/wet, so off-raod traction is also off the chart.
Designed with one purpose - to offer the complete all rounder to those who enjoy door to trail exploration. Road, Trail, Ultra Distance - it's all taken care of in this one shoe.
Saucony say about the KoaTR:
From the road to the trails and beyond, the KOA TR is the perfect hybrid for your run. Featuring a PWR TRAC outsole with a lower lug height, the KOA TR has a great underfoot feeling on hard surfaces but enough ‘teeth’ and grip to keep you sure-footed on uneven surfaces. An EVERUN topsole provides extra energy return to every foot strike, while the reinforced upper protects and locks down the foot.
- Ultra-grippy PWR TRAC outsole with lower (3.5mm) tread pattern for a great road-to-trail feel
- Oblique toebox allows for maximum splay at toe-off for added stability
- 3mm EVERUN topsole construction for continuous cushioning throughout the run
- Durable, woven upper mesh for added protection
- Reinforced heel piece for protection and a lockdown fit
