    I love these shoes, they fit well and provide plenty of support. They come in a variety of colors and are not only functional but stylish. My only wish is that when Saucony created the next version... the Pro-Ride 5, that they didn't change the elevation.

    I have alway been told I required motion control running shoes. After some searching and sound advice I was steered to this awesome shoes! I suffered from major IT bands issues and now that I have gone to this shoe this problem is all but gone. I highly recommend these shoes!

    I'm no professional runner or shoe critic, but I log a lot of miles every year and I've tried a bunch of shoes. After a few years of different brands and shoe styles, the Ride 4 is the hands-down winner, especially when price is factored.

    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.

    In the past I have bought cheap running/walking shoes at stores like Target and Walmart. I have never had a fitting problem - just grabbed any 11.5 wide shoe off the shelf and they all fit fine. But now I wanted to get better cushioned shoes to protect my body from the ground pounding while running, so I began to search for shoes from the premium brand manufacturers (Asics, New Balance, Brooks, Saucony, etc.). What a nightmare! What I found it that sizes differ across companies and across brands from the same company by full sizes for both width and length. And where the length was OK the width was often not so for the size I've always bought. I searched the stores and could not find wide sizes in neutral shoes. Then I ordered many brands from several companies and none fit well - had to return them immediately after trying out of the box. It was like going to the shoe stores and trying multiple ones there, only I had to go through the hassle of shipping back and forth. FINALLY I found these shoes from Saucony. In my opinion, Saucony makes the best fitting shoes of any of these manufacturers. Unlike the others they are not too narrow or snug fitting - which is my preference. And in the Saucony brand, these shoes had better heel support than their newer and more expensive models. So after running in them the first time today, I bought another 2 pair before they ran out. I don't know how durable they will be - the uppers don't seem as sturdy as the other brands - but the shoes were also half the price of the other brands I bought. So once again, the more expensive products are not always the best. I strongly recommend these (and any Saucony) running shoes for people like me who prefer wider shoes with more room in them (and I do not think I have big feet by any means).Read more ›

    I replaced my Saucony Ride 3 (which have been fantastic for 650 miles) with the Ride 4 a few weeks ago. The two shoes look similar, but the construction of the Ride 4 was surprisingly weak. Specifically, the padding behind the heel sank down to the bottom of the shoe within the first few miles. As a result, my foot slid forward in the shoe and the heel slipped up & down. I am sending back the shoe for a replacement, but I may opt to go back to the Ride 3.

    I bought a new pair of the ride 4 and it has been disappointing. the heel and outside edge of my whole shoe flattened out within the first weeks of having the shoe. The 3 was a great shoe for long distances and for neutral and mild protonators. I am a neutral toe runner and the prior version lasted for 4 marathons and training miles still. The new version has an uncomfortable upper and seems to have a more solid midfoot than front or heel.

    I am a big runner and what I mean by big runner is I'm 6'1" 230 pound runner. These shoes are the best shoes I have ever run in and they are lasting too. I just hope the next version is as good as these have been.
