I’m Pretty Sure Nike, Adidas, Puma and New Balance Also Run

Why do a category sell here? Wouldn’t you prefer to see the reason(s) why Saucony makes a better shoe conveyed in a memorable way?
From looking at their website, I believe Saucony is trying to say they focus on running, unlike Nike which makes a shoe for every sport. If that’s their strategy it’s a decent approach, but the copy here is too vague to truly support that position.

About David Burn

I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
