The Azura Ski is a new star-silhouette of Saucony Originals’ autumn/winter line-up. Taking inspiration from the 90’s nylon winter bomber jacket, this sneaker is made to elevate.
The Azura Ski Jacket features bold shades of nylon, reflective details and a synthetic fur lining for the ultimate retro-ski vibe. A lightweight construction is combined with an extra smooth microsuede upper, also seen in the original 1988 model.
First launched in 1988, Saucony’s Azura was originally pitched as a nimble road racer with advanced technical innovation at its core. Built on the uncompromising principles of being both light and fast, the Azura’s most distinctive feature is the Torsional Rigidity Bar (TRB). Wrapping the perimeter of the shoe, the TRB was designed to disperse shock, increase energy return and enhance midfoot support. Microsuede and a distinctive ripstop mesh keeps everything light and breezy up top, ensuring the Azura delivers the perfect balance between ventilation and durability. Down below, Saucony’s patented triangular-lug rubber tread offers a grippy foundation for all-weather on just about any surface. The Azura’s logo located prominently just below the ankle adds an extra touch of 80’s flair to the visual ensemble.
