    Comments about Womens Saucony ProGrid Guide 4 Running Shoe:

    I run outside as well as on the treadmill. These shoes feel really comfortable for both because of the support and cushioning in the shoe. They do run 1/2 size small, so as directed, I ordered 1/2 larger and they fit fine. They work beautifully with my custom orthotics.

      Comments about Womens Saucony ProGrid Guide 4 Running Shoe:

      When I say "feels true to size" I mean that the normal buying 1/2 size larger than your regular shoe size is accurate. I have always been a fan of Saucony, but I can honestly say that this is my favorite pair of Saucony shoes that I have ever owned. I run about 30-40 miles a week. I tried the Hurricanes and enjoyed them, I tried the Progrid Guide 3 and thought they were pretty good, but this Guide 4 is absolutely wonderful. They feel very light and the cushoning is perfect. Even if you thought the Guide 3s were just so-so, I would highly suggest trying the 4s. They are awesome!

      The ProGrid Guide 2 was my favorite shoe. The Guide 3 never fit or worked for me. I am an avid runner and run about 25 miles a week and I like the ProGrid Guide 4. I do find that it is a little narrow in the toe box, but it is the first shoe in a while that I have been satisfied with.

          My new favorite brand of shoes. I used these shoes for my first marathon during a rainstorm last year. It got soaked in the rain and puddles but yet it was still comfortable and I was still able to run with them. Did not feel heavy at all during the run. It didn't take long for me to break them in either. I will definitely buy another pair before they run out on my size.

            Comments about Womens Saucony ProGrid Guide 4 Running Shoe:

            I think this shoe is great. Be sure to try on or order one half size up from your regular (not running shoe) shoe size. I like the fun pink and grey color option. I liked the Saucony pro grid guide 3 as well, but the pro grid guide 4 has a wider and more-padded tongue, which makes the tongue not shift to one side. (That is ideal!) This sneaker is comfortable to run in and feels very supportive. I have high arches and I pronate, which is a bit rare for a combination. This shoe really supports my gait and my running distinctives. I have run in Saucony (love the wide toe box) shoes for a few years now, and have done 10 k, 5k, and 7 mile races in them, and one half marathon. I am really pleased with this model and it also helps me with my ITB problems that I sometimes face. I recommend it highly! I am sad that it is endangered. Might have to grab another pair at this super low price before they run out.

              Have haad these shoes for 400 miles and they still feel brand new. I will be looking for another pair of these to replce my current pair. These have been great for my short 5ks and I couldn't have asked for better in my first half. While they are not marketed as a 'light' shoe, they are light enough to not feel inhibiting while still providing the mild stability I needed. Very happpy runner here!

                This is a comfortable sneaker that provides good support. I really like how they enlarged the tongue width from the guide 3 model. I enjoyed the guide three and had two pairs of them. I am sad that they are discontinuing this model. It is a solid shoe that is ideal for trails, road runs, indoor tracks, the treadmill, etc. I recently ran a 10 k in them and in the previous model have run a 10 k, 7 miler, half marathon, and a few 5 k races. Once I wear them out, I use old pro grid sneakers to chase/walk the dog and play outside with the kids. So, I get my mileage out of each pair. I have high arches and I also pronate, which is a not so common a situation, so I value having shoes that handle that combination well. I recommend these shoes highly; don't miss out! Too bad Saucony is getting rid of this great shoe. Better stock up!

                      Comments about Womens Saucony ProGrid Guide 4 Running Shoe:

                      I love this brand! I have lost count of how many pairs I've had. I purchased this pair to replace my Saucony Omni 8. I was looking for a way to "cheap out" without major sacrifice. (I was purchasing another pair of "barefoot" running style shoes at the same time, didn't want to go way overboard!)

                      As for size, I always have issues. I usually purchase a size 7 in regular shoes, 6.5 if I can get a wide width. My Omni 8's were a 7.5 and they felt just a little long but not enought to exchange them. For these I went with a wide width and ordered a 6.5. (I would have ordered a 7 regular width so I adjusted a bit.) The fit is fine, a little smaller than I am used to but I think that's because for the last year I was wearing shoes that were too big.

                      These are awesome, comfortable right out of the box! The first day I ran about 6 miles and they were fine and I felt great. I was surprised how much spring they had. I thought my old pair was pretty comfortable but these were like a car with an advanced suspension system.

                      Bottom line: great shoe, reasonable price reliable brand!

                        Bought these shoes on Saturday and ran 16 miles with them on Sunday. Can't get any better than that! This shoe has a lot of cushion and was perfect for the road. I did not have any pain after the run either. Definitely would recommend this for the long distance runner or someone who tends to have lower leg pain.

                          Didn't require much breaking in. Just ran a 10 mile road race and had no problems with these shoes. Feet felt great.

                          You can't beat Saucony for consistent quality. This is my third pair of Progrids, and except for color choices, they are the best.

                          As always, the toe box is wide, but for me that is a plus.

                          great for runners who wear custom orthotics, who pronate, who run an average of 20-30 miles a week.

                              I run an average of 15-20 miles/wk and have low arches and wear custom made orthotics and these shoes have been great.
                              They provide support without feeling big and bulky.
                              I have worn these shoes for the last several years and have had no problems, however with this most recent pair the threads holding the upper together started to come loose after only 2 wks.

                                Loved the ProGrid Guide 2's. Went through about 4 pairs of those. The 4's just aren't the same, but I haven't quite figured out what's lacking. They are good, just not great.
