Yesterday, I had the pleasure of trying on the new Saucony Ride 8 shoes and wow was I impressed! They shoes are seriously comfortable.
The Ride 8 is a much more plush shoe that I am use to. I am use to running almost exclusively in the Saucony Mirage shoe which is a 4mm drop and is a firm and responsive shoe. Usually plush shoes are not very comfortable on my feet but this is shoe is different. I found it was not too slug like the other plush shoes I have tried on. This was a little larger in the toe box than the Mirage 8 but still fit fine.
I did notice a slight difference in the 8mm vs. the 4mm drop that I am use to running it. It was not a big deal though. It's just something that I noticed.
They are also slightly heavier (14 grams more) than my current shoe but for a plush shoe I found them surprisingly light.
I have the Silver / Red / Citron model (see photos above) and this is a really cool looking shoe.
This a great overall shoe for someone who can wear a normal fitting shoe. I highly recommend these shoes. I they will now become my go to shoe for long training runs!
