Saucony 8mm Technology

Cushioning is distributed more evenly between the heel and forefoot in shoes with an 8mm offset. The result? Your body stays in a more balanced and comfortable position with every foot strike.

IBR+

Saucony iBR+ Technology

iBR+ is a supremely lightweight but durable outsole rubber that enhances your shoe’s other cushioning elements.

POWERGRID

Saucony PowerGrid Technology

PowerGrid is a lightweight, ultra-premium cushioning foam that, ounce for ounce, delivers a smoother and more rebound-filled ride than the competition.

Awesome neutral shoe I wear the Breakthru for quality long runs and long races. I recently wore them at the JFK 50 Mile race and while they worked fine on the rocky Appalachian Trail terrain, they worked brilliantly for me on the 35 miles of road running. They feel very natural to me and while I pronate a good amount, these offer a little bit of a protection which works for me.

good shoe, but not the cortana I've been wearing Saucony running shoes for the past 3 years (since i've been regularly running/training) and this is my 3rd Saucony shoe. The 1st two were the Cortana 2, then Cortana 3. Awesome shoes. very light and comfortable and i highly recommend them. But, this time around i was looking for something with a cheaper price tag and the Breakthru checked that box. The Breakthru beats the the Cortana on the outside material. It definitely seems to be more durable without the sacrifice of breathability. I also like the style. However, the feel of these while running is not the same. I'm not sure exactly what it is, but i feel a little disappointed compared to the Cortana's feel. So, i'll wear these out and look back to the Cortana 5? for next purchase.

Hidden treasure If you want a simple shoe that's light, comfortable, no gimmicks like a midfoot band or ISOfit, this is your choice. I love it - maybe more than the Zealot which is also terrific but a bit pricier.

Just fast.... Out of the box 10 miler and wow....blew my kinvara5 out of the water. Fast shoe, feels lighter than it is, and it's very responsive. Best shoe ive run in ever! If I had a negative comment it would be that the upper is a little tight, gave me a tad of numbness but I'm sure it will wear in (was only the first run). Had really great feel, almost like a flat, but still cushioned. I think I would race in these over my A6. I'm not one for reviews but had to give Saucony props on this one. Gonna put 35-50 miles a week on these then order more!! Los Angeles Triathlete- Follow my wear on these shoes on strava ben haas.
