The Saucony Ride 15 features a reimagined fit and feel, allowing runners to sit deeper inside the footbed rather than on top of it. The result is a supportive, secure and plush sensation.
While our reviewers loved the step-in feel of the shoes, some noticed they felt a bit snug.
“These shoes have a good fit and feel for me around the midfoot. My pinky toes feel a tad scrunched up and pushed inwards, so I’ve loosened up the laces as much as possible,” says Nate.
“My left pinky toe feels slightly pressed against the edge of the shoe while walking, but I didn’t notice it during my run,” Caroline says.
Fear not if you have wider feet, because wide sizing is available in both men’s and women’s. And although Nate and Caroline felt their pinky toes slightly suffocating, Andrew had to disagree.
“These shoes make my feet feel at home! I am a fan of the just-roomy-enough toe box,” he says.
Every pair of shoes will feel different on your unique feet, which is why it’s always best to try on at your local Fleet Feet.
The Saucony Ride 15 is topped off with a lightweight, breathable mesh upper, complete with a padded, sewn-in tongue and a soft, cushioned heel collar.
“The materials fit nicely around my foot, the heel collar is plush and padded and the tongue is nice and soft without being overly bulky. They feel very breathable, even during my 80 degree run,” says Caroline.
