      My first order was confirmed as delivered by Fedex, but I never got the package. One call to RoadRunnerSports and they handled the situation and I had my shoes within a week. I never knew if they found the original order or not, they just made sure I had my shoes. Awesome support and service! Way beyond my expectations!

              Comments about Womens Saucony Ride 7 Running Shoe:

              I've been running in the Ride for about 2 months with about 50 miles on them. I waited to write my review since I felt it took a while to break them in. I've been running in Neutral+ for several years since I was training for marathons and needed more cushion. I've only been training for up to 1/2marathons, and wanted a neutral shoe to alternate with my Neutral+ in order to help strengthen my feet (less cushion makes feet work harder). I can tell there is less cushion than N+, but these are still comfortable, and my foot rolls nicely. The last time I wore the Ride was about 7 years ago, and these are definitely a lot lighter, so I am happy about that. Overall I think this is a good N shoe, and plan to wear them in my next 1/2 marathon race.

              Comments about Womens Saucony Ride 7 Running Shoe:

              I run several times a week and run up to half marathon distance. I feel like I'm the only one disappointed in the Ride 7. :( I LOVED the Ride 6. It was flexible, super-breathable and had enough cushioning while still being able to feel the ground. Whilst very light, I feel the Ride 7's are now too cushioned. I can barely feel the ground, the toe box, which is indeed wider, doesn't have enough room above my toes and so feels a claustrophobic. The breathability of the Ride 6 was absolutely superb, but the overlay holes in the 7 are smaller and I find my feet warming up even during a fairly cool Spring run. I also feel there is too much ground contact due to the significant changes to the sole and my feet feel clumpy and unresponsive as a result. I really really wanted to love the 7's having found a longed-for shoe in the 6, but sadly it's not to be.

                These are the 1st pair of 'professional' running shoes I've purchased; I recently decided I want to train for a half marathon. They seemed not cushy when I first put them on but I've run for about 30 miles in them and my knees haven't hurt yet!! They were expensive but well worth it!!!

                  I run and love this show. I transitioned from Asics to Saucony and am glad that I did. I wish that Saucony offered discounts though... I originally purchased the shoe on sale and can no longer get the shoe on sale, or I would be 100% raving about it.

                    When I first opened the box, I thought no way! The toe box seemed bigger than usual Saucony and weight much lighter but than I ran!!! It felt great. A little more breathable than expected, it was about 38 degrees when I ran, but I bought them for summer. I may buy another pair! I usually wear/near stabilizing shoes but find I can get away with a little lighter weight with some Sauconys. This is definitely one.

                            These shoes fit my feet like a glove, very comfortable when running and feel suppose throughout my foot. I have always worn Nikes for running. This is the first pair of Sauconies I've tried and so far I am very impressed. I typically train and run for 2 half marathons a year with 5Ks and 10ks in between through the year!

                                I'm not sure about these shoes yet.I've worn then in a 5k, and 2 short runs- 2-4 miles on the road. I ordered them half a size larger as recommended and when I first tried them on they felt great. However, for the first mile of all 3 runs, my pinky toes have gone numb. They also feel heavy and almost too cushiony. Maybe I'm just not used to that much cushion. I really like the color and feel like if nothing else, I'll keep these to walk in.

                                          Extremely comfortable. I can work all day on a concrete floorand my back and legs still feel great at the end of the day. I have energy to come home and accomplish things. ; before I would be fatigued by the end of the day

                                          So comfortable you forget you are wearing shoes. also I was pleasantly surprised to find that when I called to order they were 30 dollars off

                                          they look great too. I've got compliments on them from folks at work . I got the purple and silver ones

                                            These are my first pair of running shoes. I spent a long time at the store before picking these out. I bought a pair at the store and LOVED them, now I am back buying a different color. I know that running shoe companies change the shoes every 6 months or so..I wanted another pair of these before they are gone. So comfortable and gives great support. Doesn't rub at all.

                                              I run 26 -30 miles weekly on the treadmill. No breaking in its cushioning is great AND THE WIDE WIDTH IS PERFECT.
                                              I have not been on the road with them yet. But these Saucony are comfortable.

                                                I am a 5'4" 108 lb runner who runs 30-35 miles a week. I loved the Ride 5 and 6 so I thought the Ride 7 would work also. Unfortunately Saucony added another piece of leather right over the widest part of the shoe where I have a bunion on my foot. I did not even run in them once I saw that there was leather= more stress where I have a bunion. I am not sure why they added this, the Ride 6 had a window area, which did not bother the problem part of my foot. I am a big Saucony fan, and i have loved the lightweight, roomy toe box and cushioning of the Rides. If you don't have wide feet, or foot issues, these might work for you. I know if they redesign the Ride, I will be back.

                                                  LOVE these wide shoes (I bought the D width). I had bought Brooks wide shoes but my toes were cramped. This has plenty of room, even after foot surgery. Felt perfect right out of the box. Thank you Saucony and Road Runner Sports!

                                                    After wearing the Shadow 6000 for 15 years or so I was forced to try a new shoe bcause Saucony discontinued the wide version of the Shadow. Roadrunner suggested the Ride 7, and it is as close to perfect as possible. Comfortable, size is true, good cushioning, fits like a dream. I do about 8 miles a day on a treadmill at a 4.8 mph pace, 40-50 miles a week So far I've got about 100 miles on the Ride 7 and I can't find anything I don't like. They're not just wonderful and comfortable, they're also 21% lighter than the Shadow. I am a very happy woman, and I would recommend this shoe. I just hope Saucony doesn't change it for a few years.

                                                      I have always worn a 8.5 in the rides, to my surprise the design has changed they have made the toe box wider and slightly narrower along the sides , I went back and forth between the 8 and the 8.5 and the 8 's were just too small, I have to lace the 8.5 a different , tight on the bottom and all the holes on top . Hoping this works

                                                        Comments about Womens Saucony Ride 7 Running Shoe:

                                                        I've run in several Saucony shoes - the latest being the Kinvara 4 (hate them) and the Ride 6 (love them). I was so excited to try the Ride 7 as I loved the changes they made the cushioning.

                                                        When I tried them on they felt perfect. They fit exactly. They have a wider toe box and more room in the toe box than the Ride 6. The heel is snug and comfortable. The tongue is perfect. Everything felt absolutely perfect so I plopped down my money and left. I've taken them out for 3 runs now and I just cannot get beyond 6 miles in them without blister and irritation on the outside part of the foot below the big toe (you know the area - if you have a shoe too narrow it always irritates this area). This happened in the Ride 6 but I put in some custom soles and it went away (I assume they moved my feet enough for it not to be a problem). However on the Ride 7 they've added an overlay running horizontal to the ground that "meets" up with the overlay coming across the shoe and the intersection there has a bump inside the shoe and that presented all sorts of issues. The horizontal overlay is right at the edge above the foam and it runs around the toe box through to the other side. You can see where these overlay's meet in the pictures that show the inside perspective. I've tried "rolling" the overlay's that intersect there out and stretching it but nothing helps. When I took the shoes off after a 9 mile run this morning there was actually a very clear indentation on the outside ball of my foot and it was tender to the touch and blistered. This piece of overlay appears new (it is not on any of my other Ride's and I have 2 pair). I've tried with the custom soles and with swapping out the sock liner and no go on any of it.

                                                        For a traditional trainer I think they look awesome. For the first time the toe box is wide enough, my high volume foot fits in it perfectly. I've tried different socks too - didn't work. I tend to think when this happens the shoe is too narrow but when I pull the sock liner out and put my foot on it my foot fits in it like a glove. NO Overlap outside the sock liner at all. I mean literally it's just perfect. I'm actually quite heartbroken because I wore my last Ride's for my 1/2 marathon in April and they really needed replacing. Unfortunately these are not going to do. For casual walking and very short runs these are o.k. -- but I usually use much more minimal shoes for those. I really only go for the 6-8mm drop with cushioning at this level for my 8 mile - 16 mile runs. Now I've got to find another shoe with great cushioning for my long runs. Sigh.
