Men's SAUCONY® GUIDE 7 :: Cradle your feet in the perfect blend of stable support and lightweight, responsive performance with the newly upgraded Men's Saucony® Guide 7 running shoe. You'll get smoother transitions and improved stability from this latest edition thanks to the redesigned medial support system, and enjoy a more dynamic, adaptive fit from the improved upper. Plus, you can count on the Saucony® Guide 7 to give you that same lightweight feel of its previous generations because it follows tradition by remaining significantly lighter than other shoes in its class. 10 ounces
Training for a marathon in October and building up a base. I'm just over 200 lbs. (size 13) and currently running ~20 miles a week and shoes are holding up well. They were highly recommended by a PT certified by the Postural Restoration Institute, as a good way to help keep me aligned (and alleviate some hip/knee pain). So far, hip pain is down significantly, which is great, and knees are doing well. Switched from Asics Nimbus to these, and noticed the following:
- Not sure of the specifics, but the Saucony feels much lighter
- This shoe has a smaller toe and heel box. Never realized how much my feet slid in the Nimbus, but the tighter heel fit helps out quite a bit when running. I thought the smaller toe box might result in blisters, but so far, none to speak of.
- Has to be one of the ugliest shoes on the market; Saucony, if you're reading this, really would like to see something slightly more stylish; almost as if you're trying too hard to be fashionable (not working).
Great ride, cushioning and support.
I run about 30 miles a week (Male 5'8" 160 lbs.)and I have been running in the Wave Inspire and A6 GT series for the better part of 10 years. I have been looking for shoes a little closer to the ground and less bulky but not minimalist. The Guide 7 is exactly what I was looking for. The forefoot is wide but not sloppy and the 8 MM drop is lower but not an extreme change from the traditional shoes I am used to wearing. The Guide felt good right out of the box and they feel fast and supportive without being restrictive. These shoes along with the Brooks Ravenna 5's have made me keenly aware that for a long time I've been running in shoes far more supportive than I require. I am a convert to the Guide 7, its truly a great shoe.

comments from a former heelstriker
I'm on my second pair of Guide 7 as I transition from being a lifelong heelstriker to a midsole striker. Got around 530 miles out of the first pair (should have replaced at 400 though) and am thoroughly enjoying the second. This shoe is helping me change the way I run - helping me lean forward slightly in my stride. I run around 35 miles per week on asphalt and crushed gravel. I will likely purchase a third pair whenever it's time to replace the second.
Really Nice Update
I have run in several of the previous Saucony Guide and this is far and away the best! The shoe really fits well and holds my foot better than previous model - can't really explain why - it just feels so natural!!! I really have become a believer in Saucony's lower heel to forefoot ratio. The Guide 7 is on an 8mm offset and it feels awesome! Not as clunky as shoes with higher heels but not at all like some of the minimal shoes I have tried. I love the Guide 7!!!!!!!!
Just What I Needed
I have always run in stability shoes, until recently. I had some peroneal injuries in both feet and neutral shoes really helped alleviate them. Unfortunately, the rest of my legs were always sore. So, now I am switching back and forth between these and the neutral Rides... and my body is finally not angry at me anymore. I love that Saucony is making slightly lower drop shoes, and the cushioning/last/weight is perfect.
Excellent stability Running Shoe
This is my first purchased of rubber shoe at roadrunner paramus with special road runner insole.
This running shoe is comfortable, I can run and walk for 5 miles without knee and ankle pain. I am 5'4, with 7.5 2E shoe size, 151 lbs, underpronation. Only few branded rubber shoes has 8mm offset drop from heel to toe (new balance 870V and Saucony Guide 7)which is ideal for me.
Gearing up for Marathon this year and am averaging before shin injury about 30 miles a week. Right now I am alternating between the Guide 7 and Hurricane 15. For speed, tempo runs, hands down the Guide 7 which is what I was looking for. I put about 500+ miles on the Guide 6 so I am familiar with them for comfort, and speed. I definetly like the Hurricane's, however there really isn't much falloff with the Guide 7.
My 4th pair of Guides
This is my 4th pair of Guides, and after running 20-30 miles per week for the last year and a half, I am hesitant to try any other shoe in the future. I am 6'2" and 205, but started running at 250 pounds, and all four pairs of Guides that I have gone through have given me the perfect amount of support and cushion. I will keep buying this shoe until they don't make it anymore!
I typically run 5-6 days a week varying distances (5-10 miles). Purchase a pair of Glide 6 after sitting down with a local runner and liked that pair. The second pair not so much, so I was hesitant to buy these. Well, I will definitely buy another pair based on the 7s. Very comfortable, lightweight, and so far feel great on my feet (approx 60 miles on this pair).
Improved from the Guide 6..more cushion well built, stable, heel stays intact. Comfortable. I went with the Wide this time and it worked better than regular width for me. If you think they might be too narrow, just go with the wide. Really excellent shoe for slight overpronator.
New Haven CT
I have loved the Guide 6 and just got the Guide 7 and I am not disappointed. The shoe has the same comfortable feel with good support. To tell you the truth running in them I don't even notice them or think about them which is the best that I can say as there are plenty of other things to think about.

Great all around
I run on these 3-4 days a week, and they're the best I've had so far. Great transition, lightweight, and they feel outstanding on hills. I've battled blisters and nuromas and these have kept them at bay, at least up to 8 miles.
I've also run with Kayanos and Mizuno Inspires, and I prefer these.
The Goulie Kid
lightweight, supportive and great feel in transition. Could be a touch more cushioned imho but firmness leads to speedy feel. All in happy with these.
I am a constant runner - 30 miles a week - That doesn't make me an "avid" or "professional" athlete though. You need to fix your above choices.

Excellent to walk in following knee repl
Following knee surgery my therapist recommended these shoes. I have worn many other brands, but these are the best. I just wish they were made in USA.
I would buy this product again.
It felt very comfortable while running. I have used Saucony since 1992. Great running shoe. I don't have any negative comments.
