CUSTOMER RATINGS & REVIEWS
I instantly loved the way the shoe fit. There is a nice roomy toe box and I really love the flexible shoe laces. Who would have thought shoe laces could upgrade a shoe so much?!?!? Compared to the NB880 or Brooks Ghost this shoe has a firmer feel under the foot. Some people prefer a firmer ride and some a softer ride. I did not mind the firmness of the shoe once I started running though. It was nice and responsive and provided plenty of cushioning for the "average length run". The outer sole tread is also nice and durable which I appreciate when running on rougher terrain or in wet conditions. Overall this is a great daily trainer and a shoe I will keep in rotation.
I really enjoyed this version of Saucony Ride. I was able to wear a regular width and normally have to wear a wide. It has a nice cushion feel without it feeling mushy. I would encourage people to give it a try, they just may become a saucony customer :)
The new Ride 13 is a streamlined, contoured fit to its predecessor! I was unable to wear previous versions of this shoe with the EVERUN/PWRFOAM midsole because it would bother my knee, but the new PWRRUN foam is great! It absorbs just the right about of impact with a generous energy return. The 8mm heel-to-toe drop is great for the transitional runner who doesn't like too high or low of a drop. The crystallized rubber outsole also makes this model more durable than some of its competitors! I had to go up a half size compared to other brands that I have worn, but it really wasn't an issue!
Short Version: The upper is better, the midsole is better, the laces are better, buy this shoe. Long Version: The updated Saucony Ride 13 makes some nice changes, while still maintaining those core Ride features that previous wearers know and love. It continues to be a solid option in the neutral, moderate cushioning category that is great for daily mileage. I was personally not a huge fan of ISO-FIT, so the new FORMFIT upper is the biggest improvement for me. Maintains a snug fit through the midfoot, with a roomier toebox to avoid crowding. I didn't need to size up as mentioned in some other reviews, but I do have a slightly narrower foot. Still no problems with slipping in the heel; I feel securely locked in the whole run. The plush, stretchy laces feel great over the instep, and are a nice detail. Under the foot, the new PWRRUN midsole is the other main modification. While the EVERUN of previous models always felt a bit flat to me, I found the new material to be a pleasing combination of soft and responsive. Definitely take it out for a few runs before passing final judgment – I'm ~60 miles in and it has just gotten better the whole time. I have noticed that the outsole rubber has started to wear a little quicker, but I still expect to get a full life of miles out of the shoe. Comparable to the New Balance 880, Brooks Ghost, or Asics Cumulus, coming in a hair lighter than the others. For someone looking for one shoe to do it all, this is the way to go. Or, if you have way too many pairs of running shoes like I do, it fits really well into the lineup as a mid-to-longer distance trainer. Overall, pretty versatile, very comfortable, and a stellar update.
