Saucony Ride 5

I really enjoy running in the Saucony Ride 5.  This neutral shoe is light weight and responsive.  The cushion is just right.  I feel invincible in the Ride 5, like I could just continue running the entire day. The Ride 5 is a full ounce lighter than its predecessor.  Saucony has added more flex-groo [...]

Review: Saucony Peregrine

The Saucony Peregrine is the trail runner's answer to the minimalist movement. At only 8.2 ounces and a 4 millimeter heel drop, this shoe is light, flexible and flat.  Since my high, rigid arches really like a dense cushion, I am actually not a big minimalist fan. But these Peregrines actually hav [...]

The Saucony Kinvara is a fantastic looking shoe that doesn’t stand on looks alone.

Review: Saucony Peregrine

I ran in the new Saucony Peregrine trail shoe today. All I can say is ...........awesome! The Peregrine is lightweight and flexible plus it has a rock shield in the forefoot. I used to be an Exodus fan but I am switching over to the Peregrine. Our trail started out rocky but the Peregrine allowed me to skim right over them. No barefoot running here! I like shoes. I don't like having to worry where my feet will land or having to pick my way through a dry river bed.

Review: Saucony Guide 4

Recently, we got in the new Saucony Guide 4 stability shoe. Now, I am not in the stability category since I am neutral runner with high, rigid arches, but I have to admit this shoe feels good. Honestly, I am not really a Saucony fan because I think they feel too stiff, but the Guide 4 might just c [...]
