Run with confidence down any path with the Women´s Saucony Omni 12, a new and improved version of the Omni 11. This athletic shoe has much to offer if you find yourself needing more stability than your current running shoe.
The Omni line is known for its superior stability supporting technology, and the newest version has definitely been upgraded from the last in a few important ways.
Before taking a look at what has changed about this exceptional trainer, though, let’s take a look at the features that Saucony kept that make this and other versions of the Omni such an impressive athletic shoe…

- Enhanced support all around the foot provided by the innovative Support Frame technology.
- No slipping and sliding with a snug and supportive midfoot fit due to lightweight, stretchy Arch-Lock material located in the arch area.
- Keep your feet dry even on long runs with a collar lining made with moisture wicking HydraMax technology that uses performance apparel material for superior in-shoe dryness and comfort.
- Feel lighter than the air with dual-density Saucony Super Lite (SSL) foam rubber that keeps your shoes light while still offering durability and optimal rebound capabilities.
- Athletic shoe that will last and provide the traction you need even on rainy days when you don’t want to give up your run because the outsole is made with durable XT-900 rubber.
- Weighs only 9.7 ounces just like the previous version of the Omni, allowing you to have the same great support without any added weight.
- Avoid pain from shock with the SRC Impact Zone, or Super Rebound Cushioning, which reduces the force of shock when your foot hits the ground and results in a smoother transition from heel to toe.
- Be comfortable for longer workouts with a shoe that is 1/3 lighter than the typical athletic shoe because it’s made with lighter iBR+ rubber.
The bulk of the awesome technology used in the Saucony Omni 12 was used in the Omni 11 as well. All of these features combine to make a great shoe that offers stability for those women that need it, but there are a few features that make the new version distinct from the last. They include:
- A sockliner that offers supreme comfort and has been upgraded from the Comfortride to the ComfortLite in order to reduce pressure throughout the foot and help support the arch area better.
- Better support, stability, and shock absorption for moderate to severe overpronators with a midsole that has been upgraded from the ProGrid to the PowerGrid and runs the full length of the shoe.
- Redesigned upper for better support and superior style, with three great color combinations to choose from, which include my favorite gray and purple, silver and blue, and blue and pink.
The Saucony Omni 12 is built to offer stability to those that have more serious issues with pronation, so it offers a lot of medial support and a considerable amount of cushioning. If you find yourself not needing quite as much support but still needing a little bit of guidance in your running shoes there are a couple of very comparable options.
I personally love the Saucony Mirage 4 because it is lighter weight at only 7.9 ounces, and it has a bit more of a minimalist feel but still offers more support than a shoe designed for a neutral runner.
It never hurts to have extra support and stability in your athletic shoes but if you are a competitive runner you know how important it is to have a lightweight shoe as well. For more of a performance trainer that still provides the midfoot support that your body needs, try out the Fastwitch 6. At just 7 ounces, this will provide the speed you need for your next race.
All of the Saucony running shoes mentioned offer lightweight stability and support and can be worn by anyone, but each may feel a little bit different when you try them on. The best way to be sure you are getting the right pair for you is to compare them to favorite shoes from the past and go for the same type of support. There’s no doubt that you will find the perfect pair of Saucony athletic shoes for you.
