The latest edition of Saucony's flagship shoe arrives with a fit and ride even more attuned to the needs of runners seeking stability in an everyday training shoe. UPPER The upper part of the shoe is built from a lightweight mesh, helping to reduce weight whilst also kicking up the breathability for a comfortably cool run. A new flared forefoot design allows for greater ground contact, thus yielding improved stability. The shape allows the runner to direct their foot power into their spring, creating a higher efficiency in their stride. MIDSOLE Offering support for the over pronator, the Guide 8 features a dual density foam, which counteracts over pronation and assists with correcting the stride through the gait cycle, for a clean, smooth transition. Following on from the previous iteration of the guide Saucony have stuck with the 8mm drop which activates and engages a runner's ability to cushion, stabilise and spring forward. OUTSOLE The sole unit features IBR+technology, integrated with extra flex grooves in the forefoot for better flexibility and responsiveness. Several independently responsive pods in the SRC crashpad provide a smooth, efficient transition onto the midfoot, while an updated medial support system offers extra stability and cushioning, and helps to provide a smooth transition from heel to forefoot.

I have plantar fasciitis and am overweight. I took three steps in these shoes and nearly burst into tears. I ordered the C/D width and I've never felt a more comfortable shoe in my life. Might be the width sizing, might be the shoe, I don't know, but I doubt I'll ever buy another type of shoe in my life. Can't speak to its longevity, but it is extremely comfortable.
I had a pair of Asics Gel Kayano 19's that were the best running shoes on the planet. If I had known that the 20's were going to be the WORST running shoes on the planet, I would have purchased at least 3 more pairs of the 19's. Lesson learned... Anyway, I've been a runner for almost 20 years. I supinate slightly, and I suffer from shin splints and chronic knee pain, so it's VITAL that I have a good running shoe. After striking out with 2 other kinds of Asics (which I would have swore were the best running shoe on the market, up until they ruined the Kayano) I tried these Sauconys. WOW. These are amazing!!!! They are much lighter than the Kayano, but they offer far superior cushioning. They are roomier and more breathable, and I love, love, love, them. Straight out of the box, with no break-in time, I went for a 7 mile run. I didn't experience any pain in my shins or knees, and they were so light and cool, that I felt like I could have run in them all day. Time will tell if the...
I love these shoes! I wear them for walking and find that they give great support and are very comfortable. I have some difficulty finding shoes that fit my foot well (wide toe box, narrow heel, average to high arch and instep), and these fit perfectly.
