Saucony Women's Guide 13
This is Saucony’s workhorse structured cushioning shoe. “Structured” simply means it has medial posting built in to aid in reducing over pronation. It contains the new PWRRUN EVA (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) foam midsole which provides solid cushioning. On the medial side it has a firm TPU guidance frame which helps guide the foot through its natural gait cycle. It comes with an 8mm drop and is a supportive yet well cushioned road shoe.
Running Niche Experience
Guide 13 fits true to size. The collar surrounding the achilles is soft and comfortable. This is a solid mild stability shoe. The ride is a little firm but that’s good as it resists medial compression after thousands of steps. The upper is a soft engineered mesh and sitting on top of the midsole is a nice, soft layer of eva cushioning foam. Stack height is 32.5 in the heel and 24.5 in the forefoot.
Technology: PWRRUN+, PWRRUN, PWRFOAM, EVERRUN FOAMS
Saucony’s technologies focus on the midsole with several different foam combinations providing different characteristics depending upon end use of the shoe.
- PWRRUN+: Their latest and greatest a PU (polyurethane) based cushioning, low density which increases softness and lowers weight. Provides the best of the best in impact absorption, stride response, pressure reduction, energy return, durability and weight. The feel is very springy and cloud-like. PWRRUN+ is also 3X less sensitive to temperature.
- PWRRUN: Their latest upgrade to traditional EVA based cushioning foam. Increased energy return rebound and durability versus their prior formulations.
- PWRFOAM: A basic EVA foam that provides a blend of cushioning, durability, resiliency and responsiveness.
- EVERUN: A super resilient cushioning made of tiny beads of PU foam that’s quite flexible, strong on energy return and quite durable.
