I love these shoes, they are more "minimal" compared to the Saucony Hurricanes that I was wearing prior to this, so if you like/need cushioning and a bigger heel/toe ratio these may not be the shoes for you. The Guides do still have the same level of control as the Hurricanes so as an overpronator that needs the control but not necessarily the cushioning these work great for me. The heel profile is a little lower than the Hurricanes and I think the arch is perhaps a little lower and I think this has actually helped the plantar fasciitis I was starting to develop with the Hurricanes. I have narrow heels and as often happens with me the heels did start to slip a little after a couple of runs, but making a loop back through the top hole and passing the ends back through the opposite loops I created fixed this problem without putting pressure on the top of my foot. Overall I love how light they feel and I definitely feel faster wearing them. I'm a heavier runner and run around 40 miles/week and the lack of cushioning hasn't been a problem at all for me. I only wish the wide sizes came in the cool colors!

I tried to like these shoes. I really did. They are like the someone you go out with a few times because they're not that bad...everyone else seems to like them so why not give them a chance? The first few times you go out there isn't any magic...but it's not horrible so you give them another shot. Eventually they start rubbing you the wrong way and you realize you have to end it. After running about 30 miles in these shoes I decided it was time to break up. The cushioning feels fine while walking around, but take them for a run on the road and it just isn't enough. Those with average to narrow feet beware, you will feel like your feet are sliding around in these shoes after a few miles. I felt like my heel kept sliding out so I would tighten the laces to compensate, which led to pain on the top of my foot. When I ran more than 4 miles in them a hot spot would start to develop on the inside edge of the ball of my foot. That was the last straw for me, so I ordered some Mizuno Precision 13's...and it was love at first run. Those shoes are everything the Saucony's weren't...comfortable, cushioned, responsive...and best of all they fit my foot like a glove. Sorry Saucony, its not you...it's me. We just weren't right for each other.

I've been happily wearing the Saucony Guide shoe for a few years now. Previous upgrades in the model have been seamless. With this new model the fit still remains as it has in the past. However, the lighter weight comes at the expense of comfort. I run about 40-50 miles a week, mostly on dirt roads and trails and I found the new sole material makes the shoe feel as if the sole is made of cardboard. Within 1 mile of beginning my run, my feet are sore, as if I've been running barefoot. By the end of my run, my calves and knees hurt; I feel as if i just had a very high milage workout, even if I've only run 5 miles. The whole cushioning system has been eliminated. I would advise wearing the clunky, heavy, but cushiony Saucony Stabil.

Love these shoes. I suffer from Patellofemoral Chondromalacia so my knees are extremely picky as to what I wear on my feet. I also pronate moderately. I am on my feet all day and I exercise (jogging/speed walking) regularly. I have tried Asics, Saucony, and Brooks in the past and I keep coming back to Saucony. I wear these almost every day and at the end of the day, my knees are just fine, my legs aren't tired, and my feet don't ache. These have just the right amount of support without being bulky and heavy like so many of the other more supportive shoes are. They also have a well cushioned footbed so comfort is not an issue. I want to thank Saucony for making such a great shoe. When you're limited to what you can wear like I am, it's such a blessing to get everything that you need in a shoe without missing out on the fun style. I have the neon pink/lime green pair and I'm always getting compliments on them. A big "Thank you!" to Zappos as well. I just can't find these fun styles with all the features that I need in any store around here. And as always, Zappos is phenomenal at taking care of their customers! Saucony and Zappos - the perfect combination!

I had the Guide5 and after 3 months the toe started to wear through. I love the new style the toe has not worn though. I have the hot pink and green and always get compliments on them!
