The latest edition of Saucony's flagship shoe arrives with a fit and ride even more attuned to the needs of runners seeking stability in an everyday training shoe. UPPER The upper part of the shoe is built from a lightweight mesh, helping to reduce weight whilst also kicking up the breathability for a comfortably cool run. A new flared forefoot design allows for greater ground contact, thus yielding improved stability. The shape allows the runner to direct their foot power into their spring, creating a higher efficiency in their stride. MIDSOLE Offering support for the over pronator, the Guide 8 features a dual density foam, which counteracts over pronation and assists with correcting the stride through the gait cycle, for a clean, smooth transition. Following on from the previous iteration of the guide Saucony have stuck with the 8mm drop which activates and engages a runner's ability to cushion, stabilise and spring forward. OUTSOLE The sole unit features IBR+technology, integrated with extra flex grooves in the forefoot for better flexibility and responsiveness. Several independently responsive pods in the SRC crashpad provide a smooth, efficient transition onto the midfoot, while an updated medial support system offers extra stability and cushioning, and helps to provide a smooth transition from heel to forefoot.
