      I wear this shoe for road running. It is very comfortable and does not feel heavy on my feet. I do wish there was a little more cushioning and support, but even without that extra, I've been very happy with this shoe.

              Another great buy in the Saucony line. This is my third pair. I don't think I'll ever look elsewhere unless this brand goes out of business. For me, the comfort and durablility of the shoe can't get any better. I work out about 6 days a week, running, treadmill, elipitical and weight training. This shoe is perfect on all fronts.

              Comments about Womens Saucony ProGrid Guide 2 Running Shoe:

              I've transitioned from the Saucony Ride to the Saucony Guide this year. Needing a little more support, but good cushioning, this shoe provides a comfortable ride although a little stiff. It's help alleviate IT Band pain that I've felt in my hip insertion area. I've had no discomfort or pain in my hips or legs. I've stocked up knowing that usually I wear my Saucony's pretty hard so they wear out quickly. I'm glad that I tried a new pair of shoes to help with my recovery process.

                Pretty comfortable running shoe. At first I was worried about the stiff feel, but it took about 2-3 runs to break them in and now they feel fine. The mild to moderate support is great. A lot of other stability shoes usually feel to stiff and neutral shoes don't have enough support.

                    I was fitted for this shoe when Mizuno wave rider 12 felt "not cusiony enough" I have VERY high arches, wide foot, and pronate so I'm usually in a neutral shoe. I'm surprised to learn that it's considered a stability shoe, but it doesn't get any better than this so I'm not gonna question it.

                      I'm a loyal Brooks fan and was interested in swapping due to the bulkiness of my beloved Brooks. I was pleasantly surprised to the stability I received with this shoe and the lack of bulkiness that accompanied it.

                        Running shoes are so personal, one shoe is not going to be right for everyone, but I personally love these.

                        Light and cushiony ride with these shoes. Comming out of the Adidas Response Cushion 18's (which I am having a hard time finding), I find these shoes to be a little less supportive than I'd like to run in, but the Guides are a beautiful shoe. Not too tight in the toe box, and not too big in the heel. Great price, too!

Totally agree with Annonymous about the color, there are other colors than blue shoe companies!I found these at another site in orange, and the color is awesome! Notice that most of the Sauconys at this site are blue, but they are available in other colors if you look around.

                        Why do they always make women's shoes in baby blue and pink? Shoe is okay. Not great; not bad; they wear out pretty quick but better than average for the 4 months they last.

                        For the past 5 years I have run in Asics, and I relunctantly switched brands. However, I have been pleasantly surprised. I am currently training for a spring marathon, and I have no complaints about these shoes. I enjoy how light they are. I have had no blisters (which I occasionally experienced in Asics), no arch pain, no knee pain--I am thrilled with the comfort and quality of this $95 shoe. I will buy another pair!

                        Love these shoes. Great cushioning, flexible arch support, and works beautifully for me. Seems more like the old Omni 5's than anything else Saucony has made since.

                        These shoes were ok the first two times I wore them for slower jogs, but once I used them during a speed training session, I knew they would not work for me. They seem to lack support around the midfoot area, and my arches are still paying the price 5 days later.

                        I loved the old Progrid Guide and was hesitant to change. They are a bit lighter and have more heel support. I like cushion for a knee with arthritis and they are great so far. Will go for my first 20 miler this weekend in them.

My arch pain is gone as I'm training for another marathon in October. I think Saucony will be my new brand to wear for years to come!

                        Bought these to replace the guide and was very disappointed to find the tongue was not as cushioned as the prior model. The tops of my feet hurt for the first 4 runs:(

                        Love this shoe, I have 3 pairs that I alternate. I had a pair of Brooks Trance before these, and they hurt my knees, but I've had no problem with these. I'll be sad to see them discontinued. Running shoes are so personal, one shoe is not going to be right for everyone, but I personally love these.

                        wanted to buy my usually New Balances but sales associate convinced me to try these, decided to be spontaeous, bad idea. They hurt my feet, I kept thinking I just had to get use to them, but never did. And I never took advantage of the 60 day guarantee, so now Im stuck with them. Going back to my New Balances

                        Light and cushiony ride with these shoes. Comming out of the Adidas Response Cushion 18's (which I am having a hard time finding), I find these shoes to be a little less supportive than I'd like to run in, but the Guides are a beautiful shoe. Not too tight in the toe box, and not too big in the heel. Great price, too!

                        A very comfortable shoe. I bought these to replace my Guides. The Guide 2's so far are just as good. I haven't had any blisters in them, and I figure any running shoe that I don't have to think about after I put them on is a five star shoe!

                        Not bad. Wore them a for a couple of runs--no blisters, no unusual aches and pain. Totally agree with Annonymous about the color, there are other colors than blue shoe companies!I found these at another site in orange, and the color is awesome! Notice that most of the Sauconys at this site are blue, but they are available in other colors if you look around.
