Saucony Men's Ride 14 Running Shoe
About this deal
This shoe is lighter than Gaviota, yet I rated the latter higher as it is a pointedly solid shoe with a stand-out midsole that is soft yet supportive. Visually, it looks bulky with its maxed-out cushion. But in hand and on foot, the Saucony Ride 15 is strikingly light.
Saucony Ride 14 review | TechRadar
Saucony included a padded tongue to alleviate pressure on the top of your foot, and they sewed it into a partial bootie for a precise fit. The upper gives the Ride a comfortable fit and soft feel, one tester says. Saucony’s PWRRUN midsole is the same cushion used in the lightweight Kinvara 12 and stable Guide 14, where it’s proven to be lightweight and springy. It’s no different in the Ride, reviewers say. Buy the Saucony Ride 14 if you want a utilitarian trainer with a plushly padded upper, stretchy tongue gussets, and a comfortable fit. If you desire peace of mind that your shoe will feel the same on mile 1, mile 20, and mile 300, this is the shoe for you.Saucony has clearly taken a big risk with the Ride 15 but this uncharacteristic “go big or go home” approach has paid off. The Ride 15 is the best version of the Ride to date.

For the second year, Guide’s upper employs FORMFIT technology, which includes the remnant from the ISOFIT models of an attached tongue, with mesh that hugs both sides of the midfoot and keeps the tongue from moving around.From the ground up, the Saucony Ride 15 has been reworked to take comfort up a notch and strip down the weight (1.7 oz / 48 g lighter). It has: The upper’s 3D-engineered fascia supports the foot without causing pinching. It is impressive how Saucony created a shoe that feels twice as plush as it looks!. The new additions to the Ride 15’s upper are straps that protrude from the lateral and medial sides of the midfoot (one on each side) to provide a more secure wrap around the foot. These new straps work like a charm and I have a feeling we’re going to see these on many future Ride versions.

Designers wrapped the Ride 14 in a lightweight mesh upper for breathable performance. The upper is seamless inside and out, which gives it a sleek look and mitigates the chance of rubbing or chafing. What is your impression of the 14? If you’ve run in this shoe in the past as well, what do you think of this latest version as compared with the previous? Let us know in the comments!
New Balance’s 860 is also a comparable shoe, with a 10 mm. drop and similar weight, in the half-size larger 860 that my foot needs. Saucony’s Guide 14 is .8 oz. / 23 g. lighter than Hurricane 22 in women’s size 9.5. Both shoes have an 8 mm. drop.
