Saucony ProGrid™ Ride 5
220lb Clydesdale, back surgery 18 months ago. Three miles every other day. Was running in Hurricane 13s and starting to get aches and pains, arch, shins, Achilles, hips and lower back. New pair of Ride 5s and Voila, pain free. The Rides are extremely light and flexible. Soft padding is noticeable along the entire sole. I'm more of a jogger. Nine minute pace I call the Gunny shuffle. I forget I have shoes on and enjoy the Ride.

These sneakers are great for people with large feet like myself. I wear a size 14 and this model consistently fits well from year to year, version to version. I had the Ride 4 last year and upgraded to the Ride 5 this year. They don't squeeze your heel, but keep your foot in place. They also have a large toe-box so it never feels like your toes don't fit. If you need a neutral base shoe (supinated gait), this is very comfortable and any aches I get from incorrect shoes (work shoes) or old sneakers that are just too beat up to give proper support, those aches disappear within a couple days of wearing these sneakers. The laces are flat this year (rounded last year), so far no difference in how well they stay tied.

Great neutral shoe. I am a long time runner and I love the rides. Great for training and long distance races. The change to an 8mm drop is noticeable, but in a good way. It promotes a mid to forefoot strike, which honestly helps me run faster. And this shoe has a good amount of cushioning while still being lightweight. I've tried other shoes, and I keep coming back to the rides.

I have often asked runners how they liked their shoes. Usually I was met with favorable response but the response I received from Saucony owners were the most heartfelt. Almost a religious fervor. I get it now. I chose the Ride 5 because I needed a neutral shoe and I wanted to begin a transition to a more minimal shoe. The drop from the standard 12mm to 8mm was noticeable in a couple of ways. I was running faster and easier and my calves felt a little sore. I'm glad I didn't go straight to Kinvaras with a 4mm drop. They are next. The Ride 5 is also lighter than what I was running in but the drop was definitely noticeable in a positive way. I wear a 13 wide (2e) and the shoe feels great. My last pair was a Brooks Adrenaline 12 (13ee). When I first put my Ride 5's on they felt slightly narrow but that sorted it self out on my first run. Before I was a Brooks man, they make a great product. Now I'm one of those Saucony owners who when they talk about their shoes you'd swear you can hear angels singing softly in the background.
