Great Shoes

I love these shoes. Lightweight, comfortable, just enough cushion. Plus, people complement their look rather frequently when I wear them.

Versatile Shoe

Great daily trainer for up for around 14 miles. Anything more than that I start to feel it in my feet that there is not a lot of cushion.

Great fit; terrible quality

Honestly….I’m probably generous in giving this 3 stars. Not because I don’t like the fit of the shoe and it’s comfort, because I do. I’ve been a long-time wearer of Saucony shoes and this is my first time in the Ride from the Guide. (After looking at my wear pattern, I realized I didn’t need the slight stability.) The toe box is nice and roomy, and I love the 8mm drop. I rate these shoes low, because the quality is terrible. I treadmill walk or outdoor walk in them approximately 3 times a week, usually no more than 3 miles at a time. I think they’re about 6 months old, but like I said, not every day and not huge mileage. I have two huge holes in the heel of right foot, which has literally never happened in a pair of Saucony shoes before. The left shoe has one heel hole. I wear Balega socks 99% of the time and ALWAYS untie my shoes before taking them off. The tread/bottom of the shoe is awful. There’s one picture in the reviews showing the previous tread pattern vs current, and it’s true — the tread wears SO quickly. It’s absurd. I feel like the shoes have a lot of potential life left in them, but the heel holes are getting problematic. I wontt be buying Saucony shoes for walking again, unfortunately, which is a shame, because I’ve been wearing them for years; when I find something that works for me, I like to stick with it. Unfortunately, I’m going to look elsewhere for (hopefully) better quality in a walk/run shoe.

Perfect running shoe

I picked up a pair of Ride 16 on sale. I wanted to try them for as cheap as possible, after going through countless pairs of Ghost 15’s (they wear out extremely fast). It was a blessing in disguise! The Ride’s were a much needed move! Now to get my hands on a pair of 17’s!

Didn’t work for my foot

Unfortunately had to return them after trying them on, as the side where my ankle is was cut to high and ran into my ankle. This has been a problem suddenly with different brands after never having this problem over 45 years of distance running.
