The company’s first factory was founded in 1898 at Kutztown, Pennsylvania, on the high banks of the Saucony Creek (from which the company would get its name) by four business men. In 1910, the russian immigrant AR Hyde founded a shoe company in Cambridge, Massachusetts, called Hyde Athletic Industries. Over the years, Hyde became known for the production of athletic footwear, including brands like SpotBilt and PF Flyers: Hyde Athletic Industries bought Saucony in the late ‘60s and moved it to Cambridge. In 1979 two of Saucony’s running shoes were selected in the top 10 by Runner’s World magazine (the Hornet was chosen best value) and by the following spring the demand for the product had gone up 20 fold. In the late ‘80s, when Saucony became Hyde’s dominant brand, the name of the company was officially changed from Hyde Athletic Industries to Saucony.
The Saucony Jazz was born in 1981 as a running shoe. They have a suede and nylon upper, a comfortable padded tongue and the classic Maxitrac rubber sole.
