Incredibly, incredibly comfortable. I've been pretending to be a semi-serious runner for a few years now and these shoes by far are the most comfortable I have run in. Although I liked my previous Asics (which my more serious runner friends rave about). I find these hands down to be more comfortable for both running and walking.

I went to a local store and they didn't have my size but I knew I wanted this shoe. Rather than buy it in another color I ordered it from Zappis and it arrived quickly. I love it.

I have been wearing Saucony running shoes for many years, and this shoe is the best one yet. The first time I ran in them, it felt like I had been wearing them for months. Great shoe!

I purchased these shoes to replace my Progrid Guide 4s - which I absolutely love. I was hoping they would simply be the new model; however, they are completely different. The toe box feels wider than the 4 and the arch is far flatter. It seems to be a half size bigger than the Guide 4. If you are considering the Guide 5 because you loved the higher arch on the Guide 4, then I do not recommend you purchase this shoe. I wore them with custom orthotic inserts and the arches were still way too low. It is a decent looking shoe and is not uncomfortable but just isn't a true replacement for the Guide 4.

I had been running in Saucony Progrid Omni 8 for three years, and when replaced went with this shoe. I have mild overprontation, and some mild bunions. This shoe, while initially felt great, was too narrow in the arch as well as forefoot for me unfortunately, causing blister and callous quickly.

I have the Saucony Progrid Guide 4 in a size 9.5, and have loved this shoe. It's time to replace them, so I ordered the same size in the 5 series, and it was at least a half size bigger. I had to exchange for a smaller size.

This shoe was was featured in the Runner's World, March 2012 issue, which is why I decided to try it out. I normally wear a size 7 in running shoes; however, my foot was swimming in this size 7. I measured the shoe length to other Saucony shoes I have, and it was a 1/4 to 1/2 inch longer in overall length. Other than the sizing issue, this would probably make a fantastic shoe. Lightweight and comfortable!

This in no way should be labeled as a white shoe. It is more grey and chrome than anything.

Best shoes ever! I have been running in Saucony for years and have used the Guide line for the past 3 years. These shoes are lighter and more cushioned than the Guide 4. The elastic shoelaces are definitely a plus, as are the fantastic new colors. I have a high arch and wear orthotics. They felt supportive yet not at all cumbersome. I usually wear a size 8, but ordered a 7.5 and they fit perfectly. I'm ordering more today!

These shoes are very comfortable and make walking a breeze. I used to wear New Balance shoes, but i switched to these and have found them to fit my feet much better. The toe box is roomy and the shoe is very cushioned. I would definitely buy these again.

I'm a newbie runner, and was having terrible foot pain and shin splints from my old trusty pair of New Balance. Went to a running store to get fitted, and the Saucony Guide 5 was the best feeling shoe. Now 4 weeks later I can say that I haven't had ANY foot or shin splint pain at all. I will be watching these to go on sale and pick up a couple of pairs so I have them for down the road (pun intended!) Should mention that I did also purchase additional supportive inserts to go in these as well.

I love this shoe! Lots of support and cushioning. I keep getting this shoe just the lastest model and have never been disappointed. I've never had an injury and have run several marathons and half marathons in this shoe.

Not as good as Progrid Guide 4 and not even close to Progrid Guide 2. Progrid Guide 2 was the best running shoe they ever made. Hands down.

The first thing I noticed about these shoes when I took them out of the box was how metallic looking they are. The shoes run 1/2 larger for me and I will be returning them although I don't know if I will get the same style because of the flashiness.

Extremely comfortable and supportive. This was my third try at a pair of running shoes. I am a beginner when it comes to running and these felt so much better than the first two I tried. They don't slip around, I don't have any spots in the shoe that rub or are uncomfortable. These will take my happy feet to my first 5k.

I have these shoes from 2010 in wide. I ordered this pair same size and width. This new pair seems wider in comparison. Love them, just extra shoe string and getting them tied snug enough.

I've been wearing Saucony's for over 20 years and they continue to fit the same. I can always count on the wide comfortable fit at the ball of the foot. Lots of cushion.
