The Endorphin line really ought to be a package deal. Shaped underfoot to propel you forward like the Pro & Speed, yet this every day trainer has max cushioning for a plush, fast ride. Jared Ward, Saucony Athlete

Comfortable shoe that doesn't excell at anything - by , Oct 20, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I was looking for a new easy day shoe that I could use for more uptempo efforts, and thought the Endorphin Shift might fit the bill. I was hoping for something like the Ride ISO 2s, but with a lower drop. After taking them out for a few runs, they're very different than I was expecting. The midsole almost feels like balsa wood. Much firmer than expected, but it also has a noticeable shock dampening effect. Turnover feels decent, but they're not the lightest daily trainers either. They protect the feet well without feeling clunky, and they can be used for everything from easy to moderate speeds. But they're not my favorite shoes, and I'm not sure I'll reach for them all that often.

This product I was very skeptical of purchasing. I had seen them on a few channels that I watch for fitness. I can say that I was not upset after using them. I would suggest them to anyone that also has foot issues as I do.

Great cushion - by , Oct 08, 2020

I really liked the iso 5 and triumph 17 so I thought I'd give these a try. The cushion is as good or better and they seem quicker. So far so good.

This shoe is a work horse - by , Oct 06, 2020

This shoe is a great addition to a training rotation. I’ve run almost exclusively in ISO’s, and this was an easy transition. The additional weight was an issue at first but I got used to it after the 3rd or 4th run.

A Lincoln Continental on your foot - by , Sep 21, 2020
5/ 5 Stars
I have logged over 100 miles on my (first pair of) Shifts. I just ordered a second pair because I'll be in peak marathon training come November, and after running in these, I don't want to train in anything else. I was using Kinvaras for my daily trainer prior to the Endorphin line release, and nothing against Kinvaras (they're great), but the Shift is in a different league. They're solid with the perfect amount of cushion. The upper fits like a dream. It's seriously like driving a Lincoln Continental – luxurious and comfortable, but some serious pep under the hood. The Shifts don't feel like 10.5 oz on your foot. I'd give this shoe more stars if I could. Saucony has gone to bat with the big boys and they're winning if you ask me. Please don't ever stop making this shoe!

Protects feet, but too heavy and hot to be comfortable - by , Sep 03, 2020
3/ 5 Stars
I love the Pro and Speed in the Endorphin series. They are both amazing shoes. Unfortunately I can't say the same for the Shift. Although my legs and feet do feel fine after running (no pain, or injuries - nor much soreness), they feel very heavy and make my feet hot. I bought them hoping they'll become my main "easy day" shoe - but it don't work out.
