The Saucony Ride 7 keeps what works well and try to improve what has room for it. With great versatility, it is one of the most popular models within well cushioned running shoes.
Biggest change from its predecessor the Ride 6 is the replacement of the plastic shank in the midfoot by lighter and more flexible mix of foam and rubber forcing outsole to complete contact with the ground through larger and redesigned landing zones featuring a smoother transition.
Cushioning has been upgraded to full length PowerGrid™ midsole, a more efficient SRC crashpad for shock absorption and iBR+ outsole for durability. Forefoot becomes wider and deeper grooves provide more flexibility and stability.
A lighter and more open mesh improves breathability in the upper where several overlays have been removed for better fit. Reflective elements on both heel and toe box provides good visibility under poor light conditions.
