Year Released: 1981

Saucony solidified its look and feel with the Jazz in 1981. The company, founded in 1898, had been through several iterations but in 1976 the link to running was rooted and the brand's core offerings slowly gaining undying support from pavement pounding warriors. Thanks to the aid of podiatrist Dr. Frank Santopietro and a Maxitrac outsole the emphasis was all about balance. The Jazz has survived the test of time, functioning as a showcase silhouette in Saucony's Originals category and celebrated regularly in collaborations with the likes of White Mountaineering.
