Men’s: 275 g (9.7 oz.); Women’s: 245 g (8.7 oz.) Drop ra­tio: 4 mm $210 As a part of Sau­cony’s grad­ual shift to­wards im­ple­ment­ing some of their re­cent tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tions and a fresher look, they’ve fit­tingly in­tro­duced an en­tirely new shoe. The Lib­erty ISO is an im­por­tant ad­di­tion to their lineup, pro­vid­ing a rel­a­tively light­weight trainer op­tion with just a touch of me­dial sta­bil­ity.

The most ex­cit­ing as­pect of the Lib­erty ISO is that it’s now the se­cond shoe to get the full Everun treat­ment. Sau­cony in­tro­duced this su­per springy and durable ma­te­rial as an al­ter­na­tive to EVA in its Free­dom ISO, an­other part of Sau­cony’s ros­ter over­haul over the last year. Everun is sim­i­lar to Adi­das’ pre­mium mid­sole ma­te­rial, Boost, and feels zippy yet flex­i­ble un­der­foot. The Lib­erty em­ploys a small me­dial TPU piece to main­tain some struc­ture to the mal­leable Everun mid­sole, but not too much to make it feel chunky or rigid. If you need a bit of guid­ance and sup­port, but find sta­bil­ity shoes to be overkill, the Lib­erty may be your Goldilocks ev­ery­day trainer.

Up top, the Lib­erty also uses an­other great in­no­va­tion by Sau­cony, their up­per fit sys­tem called ISO­fit. It di­als in a nice se­cure and cus­tom fit. Mixed with the en­gi­neered mesh and for­ward-think­ing colour­ways, the Lib­erty ISO is one sharp-look­ing shoe.— MD
