"Talk about a weight loss program: The Guide 5 shead almost two ounces from its previous version, but didn’t lose a shred of cushioning while keeping all of it’s stability features. Saucony got more with less by lowering the heel to toe drop by 2mm and using a lighter rubber on the shoes outsole. “This was the lightest Saucony I have ever tested, yet it was easily the most comfortable,” says Mariliz Killeen, 45, an Allentown, Pennsylvania war tester who’s run in the past three versions of the Guide for us. “When I hold the Guide 4 and Guide 5 in my hands, the Guide 5 is noticeably lighter.” The one complaint we heard most from a number of testers: shoelaces that are too long. Bottom line, for many runners, the Guide 5 provides nearly as much stability as the Etonic DRP Epic, but in a lighter more flexible shoe."
