Overall verdict 8/10


The best Saucony carbon fiber running shoe if you’re looking for a PB and willing to look past the price.

  • Huge improvement on Endorphin Pro 2
  • Lighter than previous versions
  • Responsive
  • Breathable
  • Price
  • Stability
  • Fit

The Saucony Endorphin Pro 3 is a huge improvement on the Endorphin Pro 2, and is, extremely fast, yet comfortable on the run. 

The stack height has increased to 39.9mm, similar to the stack of the Nike ZoomX Alphafly Next% 2. Saucony’s added more foam to make the midsole feel much softer than previous versions of the shoe. 

That said, it’s not overly plush, but it’s comfortable and efficient, and it’s easy to pick up the pace when you need to in this shoe.  The upper has also been overhauled to more of a mesh and is arguably one of the most breathable carbons on the market.

If you’re not willing to spend the over €200, now is probably a good time to shop the Endorphin Pro 2, which is likely to be on sale. The Pro 3 is however more responsive, more stable, and a much more enjoyable shoe to run in.
