excellent light stability shoe,
This review is from: Saucony Men's Guide 6 Running Shoe (Apparel)
i am 5'10" 180lbs. heel-striking moderate-severe overpronator who runs 30-35mi/wk. ran previously in asics kayano 15 and 18, until switching to the guide 5. trained for and ran two marathons in one pair of guide 6s, including a 3:48 PR, which i consider excellent durability given my habits and foot strike. this is a fantastic update to the guide 5: retains its lightness, cushioning is a little softer and the laces are flatter, wider and shorter. it's forefoot is slightly more flexible than the 5. though this is marketed as a light stability shoe for mild overpronators, i find that these are stable enough for my 18-22 mile long runs. this is probably the least shoe i can wear for a marathon. i credit the guide 6s for allowing me to increase mileage to 40-45mi/wk the month before a marathon and stay injury free. minor complaint: not a fan of the color choices, but that's entirely subjective. hope the guide 7s live up to their predecessor!
