Our verdict

A high mileage, plush cruiser. Responsive and stable for your daily runs. A very comfortable shoe

  • Positive
  • Very comfortable. Midsole is very responsive
  • Quality upper helps support the foot
  • Negative
  • The mega-selling Guide is cheaper

First impressions

The Hurricane 23 is Saucony's statement stability shoe. An everyday workhorse of a shoe that delivers a responsive, energized ride. It features a guidance frame to keep you stable and feet facing the right way!

Midsole

The deep PWRRUN+ foam is responsive and delivers a very well cushioned and comfortable ride.

the frame helps guide the foot and coupelled with the supportive upper, it does a good job at this, however, as with the Brooks Glycerin GLS 19, we feel that it is better suited to those requiring some support rather than those with more significant Motion Control issues. 

Upper

The upper features a mixture of weaves in a structured network to help support an unstable foot. There are some nice touched like some suede on the tongue and reflective stitches which adds to that lux feel. Breathability is very good an the collar is padded and really comfortable.

Sole

A chevron pattern of rubber gives traction on road and aids the smooth ride. A guidance grove runs the length of the shoe to help stability and the relative lack of flex groves in the forefoot supports the notion that the Hurrican is built for cruising and not speed.

Conclusion

The soft, responsive nature of the midsole is not stable enough for serious over pronators and this is where Saucony and some other brands find itself - wanting to deliver plush riding comfort vs delivering really effective motion control support.

That said, the Hurricane is a very nice place to be in when logging up the miles. The cushioning is responsive, protective and the shoes soak up the miles. Saucony quality uppers fit great and in this case, help support the foot. The guidance frame keeps your feet straight without feeling restrictive, so a very good shoe for those requiring some stability and we think the shoe would also work well for the heavier runner.

Technical info

  • PWRRUN+ is a full-length responsive cushioning compound that provides a springy and responsive underfoot feel.
  • Medial TPU Guidance Frame uses a firm plastic piece on the inside of the shoe to help prevent overpronation.
  • XT-900 CarbonRubber helps increase flexibility, adaptability, and durability of the shoe.
  • Engineered mesh that is lightweight, and adds flexibility and structure.
  • FORMFIT Contoured Footbed creates a custom cradle for your foot that provides added guidance and support.

Amazing shoe!

I discovered the Saucony Hurricane in the Fall, 2020, and purchased the predecessor of the Hurricane 23 which was the 22. I like that shoe so much that when it wasn't in stock I checked out the new model. Reviews were so strong I decided to try the Hurricane 23.

I just purchased it and it's an amazing shoe! The shoe's benefits become apparent as soon as you slide your foot into it. It's like your foot is softly locked into a form-fitting cloud. The stretchy laces make it simple and quick to find the optimum adjustment for your foot. It's such comfortable shoe and your foot is so securely positioned it's already unique; but then, you stand up and take a few tentative steps to get the feel and it's a great experience! The cushioning is so powerful and your foot is so securely locked in that it's as if the shoe were part of you. The shoe feels light and flexible while also providing the excellent stability. Try this shoe. I'm glad I purchased it.
