I usually LOVE this shoe - by , Jan 09, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I continually go back to buy every iteration of this shoe. At first I thought it fit a little bit more snug and was fine with it. After some use with it for about a day or so, I noticed how much it was actually tight and pushing in through my knuckles on my feet. Narrow and tight from my big toe knuckle all the way to the pinky toe. Because there are no returns on used shoes and I had given them a try for a couple days, I was really put off to try another Saucony shoe.

Downgrade from previous models - by , Apr 24, 2019
1/ 5 Stars
I have worn every iteration of Guides since the Guide 7, and I loved the Guide ISO. The ISO2 seems to have lower profile in the back, and my foot slips out when using Superfeet insoles. Using marathon lacing helps, but then the shoes are tight across the top of my foot. There was no problem with previous versions. After ~200 miles, the inner lining at my heal has worn through.

I have several pairs of the original ISO, which are great! The Guide ISO 2 was a great disappointment. It is not as stable, much less cushioning and generally not very comfortable. This is a real problem for a running shoe.

What happened to the soft Guides we used to get? Saucony has continued to firm up the Guide until they are no longer any fun to run in. The Guides before the first ISO were soft to run in, yet still provided stability. The Guide is going the wrong direction for my taste.

Missed the mark - by , Jul 11, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
I have run in the Guide starting with the Guide 6, so have a lot of experience with the changes over the years. The Iso model had fewer overlays over the toebox which was a big improvement and made the shoe more comfortable. The Iso 2 has retained the improved toebox, but has increased the width of the spacing of the 'wings,' so that the laces must travel from the sides of your foot, and up and over your instep. Poor move - the wings should be CLOSER together, and wrap your instep, not be farther apart. Very uncomfortable! The back of the shoe cuts lower above my heel than the Iso. The Iso 2 does not properly secure my heel or provide the security over the middle of the shoe of previous models. Plus the new models have the thinnest, shortest, cheapest, slickest shoe laces I've ever seen. They won't hold a knot, so be prepared to buy new laces. Still a good platform, but all changes to the upper and structure of the shoe have compromised what has been a good shoe. I'm going to have to look for a new shoe. The Guide Iso 2 is a profound disappointment.

Sizing issues - by , Jul 23, 2019

The fit on these were weird. The heel was too loose and they ran a full size too short. Shame since I was excited about these shoes but I ended up with a black toenail due to the short fit of the shoe. Buyer beware!

Not like the Guide 6 - by , Aug 21, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
I have owned a pair of the Guide 6's for 4-5 years now and thought I would invest in to a new pair of Saucony since my last pair was awesome. I decided to stick with the Guide's as these were recommended to me based on a fitting from Sole to Soul. Trying on the new ISO's in the store they felt good. after putting about 20 miles on them they are starting to give me blisters on the inside on my heel. I am taking a few days off from walking to let my blister heal. Not sure what to recommend but I wish I could get another pair of Guide 6's.

Guide ISO OGs are Superior - by , Aug 24, 2019
2/ 5 Stars
I’ve ran in Saucony Guides for years and this is the first iteration I’ve been dissatisfied with. Went through two pairs in a few hundred miles by wearing through the heel cup fabric. The heel cup was lowered and fabric changed to a thinner slippery type that caused severe heel slip. Never had an issue with any other Guides went back and bought two pairs of Guide ISOs. Please bring back the deep secure heel cup and the jacquard fabric much more durable!

Blistering but not ready to give up - by , Nov 17, 2018
3/ 5 Stars
I've used all kinds of stability shoes in the past and after feeling disappointed by another brand, made the switch to Saucony. I liked the fit and feel to begin with and had, up until recent, some really nice runs. The break in time took a while and a few weekends ago found my feet getting blisters on the arch where the show upper and sole meet. I know some others have had similar problems, but it was definitely uncomfortable and unexpected. Otherwise, as my feet get back to fighting form, the show itself has been a positive run. A little stiff to start, but opening up nicely. I'm going to try doctoring my pair with some medical tape to see if it helps, but for other runners, you may find them to be a good option!
