Comments: I have been in the Saucony Guide since the first generation. I was very sad when I first heard that it changed because I am prone to injury and the right shoe seems to really make the difference. I had to change to the guide in the first place because my last shoe had been discontinued. I gave the guide 5 a chance and once my legs got used to the new running gait, I was hooked. I have had no injury problems since the change and I'm sure it's because of the more "natural" running shoe. I am sold on the new fad.

Comments: This shoe has been excellent for me. I'd been having a lot of foot pain with my old pair. I began running in these, and soon after I had no more foot pain. I sent in a video for the online gait analysis, and this was one of the recommended shoes. I adore them. Thanks Running Warehouse!

Comments: Love this shoe! I had a shoe crisis a couple weeks before my first marathon and chose the Progrid Guide 5 as the replacement. Had no problem transitioning to the lower heel-toe drop as I had already been using a shoe with a lower drop. Shoes are very comfortable, no problems with rubbing, smooth responsive ride. The only complaint is that the laces are WAY too long.

Comments: I despise the changes made. I need the arch support that the previous models had. Oh well, back to looking for a running shoe that works for me. :(

Comments: Finally, a shoe that I don't feel the supportive arch. LOVE LOVE LOVE this shoe! I have tried them all. This shoe is comfy and supportive. PLEASE SAUCONY, LEAVE IT ALONE \you have a good thing here. DON'T CHANGE ANYTHING.
