Ride 7 £105
saucony.co.uk saucony’s full-on cushioning shoe is for those who like a more sure-footed, firm feel. Upgrades to this version are designed to strip weight and add flexbility, giving a ride that is smoother and more natural. There’s full-length Powergrid cushioning, sturdy overlays wrapping over the upper and a plush, wicking insole. We found the fit wide, which gives a nice feeling of stability even though this is a neutral shoe. It feels high off the ground but offers a really positive, firm bounce – that won’t be to everyone’s taste and, despite the changes to the shoe, it’s not the most natural-feeling option. However, if you run on harsher surfaces or carry a bit more weight, you’re likely to appreciate the heft these shoes bring to the run.
