When more “minimal” footwear was on top of runner’s minds just a few short years ago, Saucony delivered a powerhouse performer with their Kinvara. It stripped away a lot of structure and offered a nearly level platform, but was still enough shoe for runners coming from a traditional trainer who wanted to play around with the whole minimalism idea.
Now, the pendulum is definitely swinging, and while the Kinvara continues to be a go-to shoe for thousands upon thousands of runners, Saucony is investing their energy in polishing up their already-accomplished traditional running footwear models.
Earlier this year, we saw a well-conceived refresh of the Ride, Saucony’s popular neutral daily trainer. The new Guide 7, their traditional support shoe, officially launches November 1, and over on the Saucony Blog they have a great post detailing the nitty gritty of the changes from the prior model. We love the design highlight sketches that Saucony has been including in their blogs on recent product, such as the ones shown to the right.
Read the blog for more information and more sketches showing off what makes the Guide 7 such a flagship model for the Saucony brand.
