Many of us who loved the fun ride of the Freedom found them somewhat unstable at heel, thin and tiring at the forefoot as well as overly snug at the metatarsals as the the miles piled up. While I found Freedom not really practical as a frequently run trainer, the Liberty is a more supportive and still a fun and energetic trainer with guidance features not that uncommon on many neutral trainers.
Not to be fooled though this is still a softer, more unstructured ride than a typical lighter trainer. First Impressions and Fit Sam: The steely blue gray Liberty ISO continues the sophisticated "lifestyle" useful look of the Freedom, my Freedom being all black. The various shades of blue gray subtly call out the features of the upper without screaming them out.
The medial TPU plate not so much in terms of subtlety as while thin and even flexible it looks scarily supportive and rigid which it is not.
In fact it disappears on the run and aesthetically and visually it should disappear as well as well but doesn't. My sample 9 is half size up from my true to size as was my Freedom.

Liberty ISO fits correctly at that size if a bit loose with medium socks with less pressure over the metatarsals than the Freedom, Saucony widened the Liberty ISO a a bit in that area but there is still a distinct "grip" on the medial side there but no unusual pressure as the upper has no significant overlays there beyond the end of the logo and is soft and somewhat stretchy.
The heel hold or more accurately stabilization side to side with the additional external Support Frame pieces is improved but i still think the Liberty ISO would be yet improved more with a real heel counter. These fit true to size for me. My first impressions were good. I liked certain things about the Freedom and hoped that some of them would be improved upon in the Liberty.
This mesh is denser and clearly more supportive than Freedom's without going all the way to being stiff and overbuilt. The Freedom's upper was made of a single density of engineered mesh. The upper retains the full bootie construction of the Freedom with the entire length of the tongue part of a stretch bootie wrapping the foot and attaching below the Everun top sole below the sock liner.
The bootie itself is softer, stretchier, lighter more aerated mesh than the Freedom's. The tongue top, a molded 3D profile while having no padding per say beyond the molded element is dense but springy and super comfortable while thin.
The photo above really illustrates how foot conforming and customizable the fit can be made for a variety of foot shapes. There is no plastic heel counter in the Liberty ISO. While the Freedom has a single band, the Liberty has four: The Liberty is feels much more refined and honed than the Freedom did.
The Freedom almost felt like a prototype to me. The lacing system is as good as Saucony has done lately. They work well to hold the foot and adjust each area of the foot specifically. It helps the shoe feel more complete. In addition to the Everurn midsole, Saucony uses an Everun top sole under the sock liner of the same material to "more evenly distribute landing pressures". While step in comfort in the store is important, an EVA layer would further stabilize the shoe and I think increase response.
Yes, TPU can be made into foam as in Everun but is more commonly used for such elements in running shoes. The vertical plate looks a bit ominous and scary with a heavy duty stiff pronation control vibe but is actually barely felt on the run.

For this neutral shoe favoring runner who can't stand any posted shoe where a plug of very firm foam "posts" is inserted on the medial side to "control" foot motion this lightweight approach works fine for me. The plate just does not feel like a "post" and is less noticeable than the adidas Tempo 9's RTR review similar side wall stabilization. The plate flexes somewhat and keeps the Everun from collapsing to far to the inside providing what Saucony calls " a touch of medial guidance" and here it works well for me, taming the somewhat sloppy wild ride of the Freedom while still providing the energetic ride of Everun.
In addition to the plate Saucony made the side walls on the Liberty ISO more vertical than the Freedom's reminding of the Kinvara to again guide the foot and prevent to much collapse to the inside on the way to toe off.
I agree that the build of this shoe provides more support than the Freedom did. Outsole Contributing to the medial guidance is a new version of the Crystal Rubber translucent outsole first seen on the Freedom.

The Freedom left below had a single density soft outsole and except at the heel is entirely of the same Try-Flex lugs size and firmness. The medial side of the Liberty right below, left side has firmer blue rubber. Contact and surfaces are fuller there. On the rest of the outsole where we have the same lugs and firmness as the Freedom.
The outsole material in all areas is Saucony's Crystal Rubber It is relatively soft if very durable. Please ensure that the products are in a condition that can be resold.
