A full ounce lighter than its predecessor, the Saucony ProGrid Ride 5 has been completely redesigned to provide outstanding responsiveness and flexibility.
Upper: Air mesh with synthetic overlays provides a breathable environment with increased support and durability.

SRC Impact Zone and SRC Xtra forefoot cushioning provides shock attenuation and sets up the foot for a smooth transition through the gait cycle. HRC+ Strobel board increases cushioning and comfort.

Outsole: XT900 outsole offers exceptional traction properties without sacrificing durability. Injection Blown Rubber provides lightweight cushioning while maintaining durability and a smooth ride.
Runner's World Best Buy
"A Best Buy pick that tops $100? If you're shopping for new shoes, you know they're getting more expensive. But the Ride 5 is indicative of a trend we're seeing: The shoe is $10 more expensive and is a full two ounces lighter than its predecessor. That weight savings is largely a product of using less foam in the midsole and a reduction in the rubber on the outsole, which also makes this update lower to the ground and more flexible. The changes resonated with testers, who rated it the highest of any shoe in this guide for comfort, cushioning, and ride. So, despite the price hike, it's worth the splurge."
