Get down to earth with the Saucony ProGrid Guide 5. This popular support shoe is the predecessor to the Saucony ProGrid Guide 6 and has moved from the traditional 12mm heel-to-toe drop to an 8mm heel-to-toe drop, bringing your heel closer to the ground and encouraging a more natural forward foot strike. On top of that the Guide 5 is nearly identical in weight to the Saucony ProGrid Guide 6. With greater flexibility, lighter weight, moderate support and increased cushioning throughout, the Saucony ProGrid Guide 5 is an outstanding value.
