Durable and comfortable
on November 8, 2013
The Saucony Guide continues to be a favorite for both my wife and me. Every 500 miles or so, when it's time for a new shoe, we try on several pairs of different brands, but for us, nothing compares in comfort to the Saucony Guide.
The upper part of the shoe is mostly mesh, allowing the shoe to breathe and your feet to stay cool and happy. The tongue and back of the shoe are as soft as thick socks; I've never had a blister in my guides. The padding and support are just right for a runner with mild over-pronation (my wife and I are both neutral). And the shoe strings are perfect--they stay tied without being double knotted.
These shoes are flexible and light, yet hold up very well. My wife routinely puts 700 or more miles on hers.
Neutral runners may want to try the Saucony Ride, as the Guide is considered a "stability" shoe, but the Guide 5, 6, and now 7's have been perfect for us.
