Customer Reviews

Comments: I ran in the Saucony Rides for years without problem. Ran marathon, halts, etc and love the Saucony shoe. But his Ride 7 is a stiff failure! After a few months in the shoe, I developed horrible blisters on the side of my foot and toes! Disappointed in Saucony Ride 7, go back to the model 6. Switched to Newton Fate and have had success

Comments: Bought these shoes a few months ago...maybe my 6-7th Saucony Ride shoe to run in. I ran several events, including 2 marathons, and never had a problem with my previous Sauconys other than my toe popped through on one foot on ever model and I wore them out. This model was a nightmare. There is hard plastic along the seams right along the side of my foot. It has caused me to get a painful bunion on one foot by the big toe. After years of Saucony, I am looking for a new brand (Newton?) without seams around the toes to cause irritation over the miles.
