Saucony Running Shoes – Ride 5 & Guide 5

Two of the most popular shoes we carry!  We just received a new color in the men’s Guide 5… and more of the same color in the men’s Ride 5. Not familiar with this great pair of shoes? Here’s a short list of features:

Ride: The Ride 5 is the most responsive version of this shoe to date. The heel edge is beveled (rounded) for a smoother transition from heel strike to midfoot, and more flex grooves have been carved into the forefoot design for better overall flexibility. The heel-to-toe offset has been adjusted from 12mm to 8mm to promote a more balanced, efficient stride throughout the gait cycle, while the ProGrid™ technology (previously in heel only) has been extended to the entire foot bed for a more seamless feel. Weight 9.8oz men’s, 8.6 oz. women’s.

Guide 5:   2012 Runner’s World Editor’s Choice Award! The heel-to-toe offset has been adjusted from 12mm to 8mm to promote a more balanced, efficient stride throughout the gait cycle. ProGrid midsole technology(previously in the heel only) has been extended to the entire foot bed for a more seamlessly responsive running experience. Weight 10.2 oz men’s, 9.1 oz women’s.
