Looking at the shoes right out of the box, the Ride 7 looked a little bulky and I was worried that that they would weigh a little heavier than usual. But I was pleasantly surprised that it weighed in at only 266 grams.
The 7th edition of the Saucony Ride was my first trial of this brand. Opening the box, I was interested to see how this cushioned shoe would respond in the recent move towards all things minimalist.
Reflecting its continued brand momentum and strong focus on award-winning innovation, global performance running footwear and apparel brand Saucony is proud to announce that the Ride 7.
Saucony Guide 7, a stability shoe, comes in 4 colours each for males and the females. It is a shoe commonly used for training and the Guide franchise has sold more than two millions pairs globally since its debut in 2008. I recently got a pair which was in the gray/orange/citron colour scheme for review.
Being a runner for about 8 years and counting, I have experimented with different kinds of brands and designs of shoes. As I competed more, I tend to favour neutral shoes which had thin soles and lining with minimal cushioning that allowed me to feel airy and light while running.
The new Guide 7 represents the longest development initiative in Saucony’s history. Almost three years in the making, Saucony designers have sweated every detail, crafted every radius, measured every thread, and refined every element to complement a runner for the long run.
A one-time-only pop-up store will be set up at the Big Splash on 26 and 27 of October to showcase the Kinvara 4 series. One of the first ever sporting brands to utilize the pop-up store concept, Saucony’s #Kickassimus Cage will run for a limited time of only 2 days, and will highlight the performance-inspired evolution of the Saucony Kinvara 4 series.
The 4th generation of the Kinvara series by Saucony is here. Boasting a redesigned upper mesh and upgraded midsole among other enhancements, does it offer an improved experience over the Kinvara 2 and Kinvara 3?
Good news for runners who enjoyed the Saucony’s Kinvara series: the fourth-generation natural motion icon has arrived; with upgraded design features to exceed the expectations of even the most ardent “Kinvara faithful”.
The Saucony Virrata is a natural motion running shoe with all the benefits of form and none of the strain. The 0mm heel to toe offset ensures that the landing is even with no extra cushioning elevating your heel. The Saucony Virrata is extremely light and flexible, this translates to THE perfect marathon shoe this season!
The luminous fusion of lime-green and fuchsia pink was certainly eye-grabbing and I personally favour how the shoe doesn’t appear “overly-feminine” despite the loud tone of pink. The hint of neon-green brought zest and I was all excited to lace up and hit the trails. Don’t be fooled by the thickness of the sole, the cushioning provided a snug fit and there was sufficient ankle support.
When a shoe comes with a reputation having won the “best debut” in Runners’ World Magazine back in 2010, expectations of its third iteration would naturally be high. However, the Saucony Kinvara 3 exceeded my expectations and gave me a ride to remember! Having worked out the minor flaws in the first two Kinvaras, Saucony went back to the drawing board and gave us a beauty to behold!
