ABOUT ME: 49 years old, 165 lbs, neutral pronation, forefoot striker, 5-8 miles/run, 1500/year. Your results may vary if you pronate or heel-strike, I don't know. . ..
Shoes I've tried: New Balance 760, 1080 and 890, Asics Gel Cumulus, Brooks Pure Connect, Saucony Kinvara 2, Nike Pegasus, Nike Zoom Vomero, Hoka One One, Vibram Bikila
Last year I joined the "barefoot running" craze. After chronic injury (including a stress fracture) I became convinced the whole barefoot thing, for most runners, is a fad. At least to my 49 year old bones. Great running technique, just do it with some cushioned shoes. So I went back to a traditional running trainer like the Asics Cumulus and the Saucony Progrid Ride. Oh, and no 8mm heel-to-forefoot drop for me either, that's another marketing fad in my book and leads to nasty plantar fasciitis in my experience. Even the avid runners at my local running shoe store hate the 8mm drop. Hopefully manufacturers will realize this and return to, or continue making, a traditional 12mm drop like the Ride. Until then, get them while you can!
Anyway, the Ride 4 is a middle of the road shoe. Not the lightest, but certainly not as heavy as other trainers. Cushioned, but not too much like the Vomero. Somewhat lively heel and retains its "springiness" longer than the New Balance, which is my major complaint with that brand. More durable and comfortable, by far, than the Kinvara (although I think they've improved that). Much better performance than the Pegasus.Read more ›

I love the shoe, color, maker, etc. There is one massive thing I have noticed that Saucony managed to do... they don't put arch support in the shoe. Read morePublished 21 months ago by M Kinzer

Shoes made by a shoe company that only makes running shoes. These are great neutral shoes and I get a-lot of life out of them. They provide comfort without the weight. Read morePublished on January 13, 2013 by Michael B.
Great shoes. Had a pair of these shoes already and couldn't find them as they were being discontinued. Roomy toebox and a comfortable shoe. Great price on a closeout shoe..Published on January 11, 2013 by hhk
