You'll be amazed by the seamless feel provided by this shoe's welded overlays, and your feet will stay cool, dry and comfortable mile after mile thanks to the open air mesh and moisture-wicking liner.

First off, I am a person that puts alot of miles on my feet and I was a huge believer in the Nike Pegasus 30, until I met the Pegasus 31. The Pegasus 31 was a extremely slimmed down version of the 30. From cushion to fit. So I needed a shoe that was like the 30 and I had to go outside my Nike comfort zone. I went into the Road Runner store and he suggested the Saucony Ride 7. It seems Saucony spends more attention and money on the upper portion of the shoe, which helps runners that have lace issues like me. The support and cushion was very similar to the Pegasus 30 but I wear a 10 and a half in the Pegasus and wear a 10 in the Ride. The Ride seems light and very responsive on the road runs but is lacking in the traction department in the off road situations. I've had these shoes for about 2 weeks now and my overall impression is that the Ride is a great shoe for a long distance runner or someone that puts in high mileage week in and week out.
Pretty good but still looking
As someone else commented, I was looking for a Nike Pegasus replacement. The last great one I had was the 29 H2O repel with Nike Shield. Loved that shoe. Subsequent models not so much. Also the Nike Vomero line up until the 7. Hated the 8 and 9. Ran in Saucony many years ago so thought I would try the Ride 7. First 5 mile run the shoe felt hard as a rock but it was only 9 degrees outside so...Second 5 mile run it felt better but I had a hot spot on my right ball of the foot. Have not had a hot spot in years so this was a little disconcerting. I'll give them a couple more runs but so far I don't think this will be the shoe Im looking for. I like a neutral cushioned trainer. I do a few half marathons and triathlons every year.
Love to leave in my Saucony ride 7s
Ex marathoner and tennis player, I run 3 miles a day now. I coach tennis and often where my Saucony shoes to teach tennis. Great shoe. Tried others over the years. This is my favorite for fit, comfort, light weight feel and support. . Cannot tell you how important those features are too me. I fitted a half size larger. Perfect shoe. Believe me I have worn a lot of other shoes, Asics, brooks Nike, Adidas, etc. when a shoe fits, wear it!
Light Soft Flexible Top Distance Shoe
This is the responsive cushioned shoe I have been waiting for. I have been using Hoka Mafate and the Brooks Transcend recovering from various marathon injuries. I will keep using those but rotate into the Ride. I do wear Sole orthotics due to my high arches. Also looking at NB 890v4's for racing but right now the Ride 7 is the top running shoe I have worn.

Great for high mileage training
I really like the Ride7 as a high mileage trainer that is fairly light weight. Cushioning was great and held up well under higher mileage. The only negative was the fit being a bit too roomy for my narrower foot. But, with the laces cinched up tightly it worked pretty well. I had to by a half size smaller than what I wear in the Kinvara and the Ride still felt a little too big in size.

Excellent Pair of Shoes
I run between 5km and 5 miles a day. Had ACL and microfracturing on right knee so my awareness of joint pain is acute. This shoe is excellent in providing cushioning and arch support and I have no issues with impact on knees. It seems to be durable but too early to tell at this point. I run both treadmill and on pavement. The only negative is that it's a bit colorful.

Second Pair and Counting
On my second pair of Saucony Ride 7s. Picked these because they fit me better than comparable brooks, asics or nike shoes. Couldn't be happier with their performance. After three months of solid training at 100 miles per month I purchased another pair and alternate them in with the more used ones, still going strong at over 300 miles.
Love these shoes!
I have run in Saucony Ride 7's for 2 Chicago marathons, countless 5ks, 10ks and 1/2 marathons... I love these shoes. I track my mileage during training and races and they average about 320-350 miles of road running before I need to replace them.
Love these shoes!!!
I love these shoes. They fit my feet & runnung style great. They are by far the most comfortable pair of running shoes I have owned. They are so comfortable that even when going out for a light jog I want to stride out and go for it.
Been using these shoes to train for an up coming fitness test I had for a job. Running with these shoes I was able to get around my shin pain that I have been dealing with my last couple pairs of shoes. 10/10
Great balance of cushioning and response
I work out with the Ride 7 every other day for road running, treadmill and elliptical work. Nice cushioning for a fairly light shoe, comfortable for long runs.
Lite and Fast
This is my everyday go to shoe. I train and run marathons in this shoe and is one of the best I have ever run in for Light weight and comfy!
a great all around exercise shoe
A running shoe that is very versatile for me as a distance walker. Excellent service and return policy from Road Runner Sports
Big sky wind drinker
Not quite as cushioned as I would have liked. Fat shoe, I have ran a half marathon in these before. Does a great job for the price.
Great running shoe
Great shoe if you have a very wide food. Comfortable. No blisters. Been buying this shoe model for years and I love it!
This shoe was comfortable right out of the box. Love it for long runs and recovery runs. A bit over built for speedwork or racing.
Great Supportive Shoe!
I am a bigger guy 6'0, 280lbs and average 20 miles a week with these shoes and am very impressed with them so far.
University place, WA
Great training shoe!
I run 45-75 minutes, 5-6x per week. These shoes are my primary trainers. This is my second pair, and I recommend them.
Hill Country, TX
Perfect shoe for my feet and mileage.
I run between 20 and 24 miles per week and have been wearing this model for the 20 past 20 years.
Strikes a great balance between cushioning and speed. Probably my third or fourth pair.
Three 8 mile runs.
Three consecutive PRs.
Great cushioning without feeling squishy.

These shoes are Golden!
First a Foremost, I am a Brooks & New Balance kind of Man. I bought these to try them out, and needless to say, I'm keeping these and look to ordering the grey/green next time. I have the blue/citron and really love the color and have gotten compliments on them. Now for the performance...They are Great! Great cushion,grip the street really well, & not crazy overpriced. I'm what you call a runner that is making a comeback. I put it off and the lungs aren't there, but one thing for sure, I do not have to worry about my feet or the shoes anymore. If you're a big boy or any size...I'd say these are probably the best out there and at the very top that I've used in my running life. Absolutely Love Them!
