I should have listened to the reviews of this shoe. I don't know what Saucony did to the design of this shoe but it is NOT the same shoe as the previous Ride 7 and 8. I owned 3 pairs of the previous models and they were wonderful. Although I ordered a wide width this shoe is narrow and uncomfortable. It creates pressure points along the top of the foot and at the heel. I deeply regret this purchase and, although they are gradually breaking in, they are still not as comfortable as the previous models.

I was IN LOVE with Ride 8 - so was a no brainer to order the updated version. Nope -- felt totally different. The padding felt way different and could tell right away this wasn't the same ol shoe I loved. :( I still love Saucony - but the Ride 8 is NOT for this girl!

I have bought and worn a size 5.5 women's Narrow for years in the Saucony line and have loved every pair until I have worn them out. I was excited for this new pair to arrive, but was so disappointed in the short toe box. My toes were pressed against the front of the toe box with no room to wiggle. I've never experienced this with Saucony before. These shoes were at least a half size smaller than my other Sauconys of the same exact size and width. Returning them. This was my first disappointment with Saucony, but as usual, Zappos delivered in about 24 hours from placing my order and the return was easy.

I'd also recommend: Asics

Saucony needs to fire the redesign team that did this shoe. They have literally destroyed the product. And for those of us who require a neutral shoe to run in, Saucony Ride was the go to. *Even* with going wide (which I have never ever had to do ever in my life with any shoes, including with previous Saucony), even with going a size up, my pinky toes are bloody and my big toes have developed nasty painful corns. It has now runined my wearing any shoes comfortably. I despise this shoe so much. I would not even donate it to the running shoes for the homeless. I threw them in the trash and restrained myself from spitting on them. I have been a Saucony devoted customer for years. Now I am in search of another company that offers a neutral shoe without having designed them to be the "cruel shoes." If you are a runner or power walker even, run away from these shoes and don't look back. Whoever the designed are, they simply have no understanding of feet.

Medium weight, cushy support. I use for circuit training and walking. Good width for wider feet.
