Very comfortable - by , Jul 22, 2018
5/ 5 Stars
Love them but need to replace and cannot find another style to put in orthotics and that does not hurt hip. Need to find another style. Very disappointed that they are discontinued

Great spring, but at a cost? - by , May 12, 2016
4/ 5 Stars
Made the switch from Brooks several years ago and I'll never go back! Now I'm getting back into running after a grad school-induced hiatus, and the Guide 8s feel great to run in! Lots of spring off the forefoot while maintaining cushioning. However, I've had an uncharacteristic flare up deep in my "bad" ankle. Could be something else, but I've never had this problem with a new shoe before.

Not the trusty performance of my usual Guide - by , Mar 29, 2016
2/ 5 Stars
I am a loyal Saucony wearer, but I am disappointed with the Guide 8. I started out running while wearing Saucony Guides and always loved them. To mix things up, I have tried running in various brands and always had issues with inflammation of a tendon on the bottom of my right foot. Switching back to my trusty Saucony Guide (Guide 7 at that point) immediately resolved the issue. At that point, I vowed to run in nothing but the Saucony Guide. So far, I've logged 33 miles in my new Guide 8's, and the inflammation in my right foot is flaring up again. It saddens me that my go-to shoes don't seem to be an option right now. I would LOVE it if the Guide 7 could live forever!!

Only Shoe I'll Ever Wear - by , Mar 10, 2016
5/ 5 Stars
I started wearing the guide 8 when training for my first marathon and its the only shoe I'll ever wear. They break-in quickly, which is a huge plus. I love looking at my feet when I'm running and seeing the fun colors. It gives me a little smile during my runs. The stability is great and helped my ankle alignment, which cures my knee pains. Try these out. You won't regret it.

Perfect Shoe for Roadracing - by , Feb 17, 2016
4/ 5 Stars
I have purchased two Guide running sneakers in the past and keep coming back. I owned Guide 6, Guide 7 and now the Guide 8. I ordered the 9.5 which is the size I wear in other shoes (flats/boots). These shoes provide comfort and stability while training for my half marathons since I have some pronation. I only wish they had more color scheme options!

Comfortable and flexible shoe that provides excellent arch support - by , Jan 04, 2016
5/ 5 Stars
Comfortable and flexible shoe that provides excellent arch support and stability. For long-distance running, I'd say the shoe's cushioning and support lasts for about 350 miles or so, depending on how hard you run, before you notice that the support weakens somewhat.

The Guide 8 is a great shoe. I am 45 years old and have enjoyed running since I was around 12 years old. I have ALWAYS worn/purchased Saucony shoes. For me, I like the cushioning and stability of the Guide 8. I also like the colors.

size too big - by , Dec 17, 2015
3/ 5 Stars
I should have loved these shoes, if they size correctly. I wear size 6.5/23.5cm for all my running shoes. I saw the sizing chart that 23.5cm for this shoe should be size 7, so I ordered a size 7. BUT it was way too big. Sizing chart is misleading. quite disappointed as I do like them. Other than that, shoes are nice. You only need to order the normal size for these particular style.
