Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Shoe Review
Over the last year or two, the Hurricane ISO 4 has been my go to shoe for daily training and longer runs. The cushion and responsive feel of this shoe really make it great for training for races of all distances. This has been my top mileage shoe and have been excited to see how this shoe continues to improve.
If you have read my Hurricane ISO 4 review, then you know I like the Hurricane shoe model. The updates to this shoe are a bit subtle but worth taking a look at. The redesigned upper improves comfort and breathability while the additional EVERUN top sole improve comfort and support.
I’m telling you, once you give you this shoe a try, you will forget that this shoe is a little heavier than some of the other running shoes that are a bit lighter. The Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 is available in 3 colors for both men and women, all of which are solid choices.
I have ordered a 1/2 size up with previous versions of this shoe as I have always been an 11 or 11.5. The width of the shoe remains similar to previous versions.
Below are a few pictures of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 worn for this review.
Below are pros and cons of the updated Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 shoe.
Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Shoe Verdict
The Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 continues the great tradition of the Hurricane running shoe. The Hurricane ISO 5 continues to be extremely comfortable shoe that provides a bit of stability and a responsive feel.
The updated midsole has even more EVERUN, which enhances the feel of this shoe. The updated crystal rubber material should enhance the durability of this shoe. Towards the 400 mile mark of my Hurricane ISO 4, the sole started to wear quickly.
If you are looking for a stability shoe that is great for long runs and daily training, give this shoe a try. This is the shoe that I wear on all of my long runs and haven’t found a shoe that feels as good as this one to date.
One thing to note, if you have severe pronation, you may want to look for another stability shoe.
Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Initial Thoughts
Knowing that the Hurricane ISO 4 has been my one of my favorite shoes over the past 2 years, I was really excited to give the Hurricane ISO 5 a try.
I was happy to see that the Hurricane ISO 5 and Hurricane ISO 4 weighed the same. As much as I liked the color worn for this review, I really thought the navy and blue combinations looked great (this color is also available in a wide version).
The first run in these shoes was 8 miles. I plan on wearing these for all of my long runs and as I train for the 2019 Cleveland Marathon as a Race Ambassador (save 10% off with code SLONG2019).
Here a few pictures of the Hurricane ISO 5 and Hurricane ISO 4.

Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Shoe Overview
The Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 running shoe is a max cushion stability shoe from Saucony. If you are logging high miles or just want to have a supportive and responsive ride this could be the shoe for you. Stability shoes are great for those who have a mild to moderate pronation then this shoe is something that you will want to try.
The increased EVERUN top sole adds to the comfort and responsiveness of this shoe. Almost all of the other Saucony running shoes now have a full EVERUN sole due to the success of this midsole. Some of those models include the Freedom ISO and Liberty ISO.
The upper of the shoe has an updated mesh upper which improves breathability. The weight of these shoes are almost identical to the its predecessor weighing 11.2 ounces for a men’s 9. Even though these shoes weigh more than 11 ounces, they feel lighter when running in them.
Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Shoe Sole
The sole to the Hurricane ISO 5 had a few notable updates. In addition to the full EVERUN sole, the shoe now has an EVERUN top sole making it even more cushion and increased energy return. If you look at the earlier pictures of the Hurricane ISO 4 and Hurricane ISO 5 you can see the sole of the Hurricane 5 is slightly bigger, which is the additional EVERUN sole.
If you want to learn more about the enhanced energy return that the EVERUN sole provides check out the Saucony EVERUN page.
After nearly 400 miles on the Saucony Hurricane ISO 4, the soles started to wear out. I’m hopeful that with the Tri-Flex Crystal Rubber sole, it will have increased durability in addition to the increased flexibility.
Below are a few pictures of the Hurricane ISO 5 sole.
Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 Shoe Upper
There was a minor update to the Saucony Hurricane ISO 5 upper. The new upper is an engineered Jacquard mesh that flexes more with the foot while providing lightweight breathability.
The Hurricane ISO 5 continues to utilize the ISOFIT upper, which is a sock-like feel that provides increased comfort. The ISOFIT is an adaptive fit system that shapes to your foot and helps increase support as you increase mileage.
Some other updates include a contoured foot bed which improves fit and support.
