With a whole new design, the race-ready Saucony Switchback 2 offers a nimble feel, grippy traction, and a dialed fit on the trails. Updated with a new rock plate and Saucony's most responsive foam, the Switchback 2 has better protection from the rigors of trail running while maintaining the lightweight and low to the ground design of its predecessor.

What You'll Love:
- Balanced cushioning and protection
- Minimal and connected to the trail feel
- BOA lacing offers a secure fit

Almost an ounce lighter than the previous version
Saucony listened to runner's feedback about the first Switchback and added 3mm lugs for more versatile traction on the trails. Meanwhile, the new PWRRUN+ foam gives the shoe a soft yet bouncy ride that's great for short to moderate trail distances. If you're looking for a fast, versatile trail running shoe for your next trail workout or race, grab a pair of Saucony Switchback 2s.

What's New:
- PWRRUN+ foam offers a springer ride
- Deeper lugs deliver improved traction
- Rock plate protects from stone bruising
- Shroud upper comfortably wraps the top of the foot


  • Full-length PWRRUN+ midsole provides the brand's most responsive cushioning while offering shock dampening comfort on the trails.
  • Rock Plate made of braided nylon protects the foot from feeling sharp rocks and debris underfoot.
  • FORMFIT Contoured Footbed creates a cradle for your foot that provides added guidance and support.


  • PWRTRAC is a tacky rubber compound that offers significantly more traction than traditional rubber. Shaped in a hexagonal pattern with 3.0 mm lugs, it can adapt to a variety of terrain.


  • Woven Mesh upper is lightweight, strong, and durable with a highly breathable design.
  • Wraparound upper has a soft, sock-like feel, with asymmetric lacing that eliminates pressure across the top of the foot.
  • BOA System fit solution delivers a finely-tuned and easily adjusted wrap.
  • Mud Guard on the upper enhances protection and durability in high-abrasion zones.
