Saucony ProGrid Ride 2
Released June, 2009
The Pros:Good support for runners with supination issues. Offers plenty of space for wider feet. Cushioning highly effective, even compared to other runners.
The Cons:Focus on cushioning and comfort reduces power transfer, meaning slower runs. Unusually large toe box reduces the amount of response the shoe gives.
The Saucony ProGrid Ride 2 is an entry-level running and everyday training shoe that uses Saucony's ProGrid sole technology to help spread out the force of impact over the foot. It is also supposed to make for a smoother transition while the foot is in contact with the ground.

It has a liner around the top of the shoe that wicks moisture away and is supposed to provide upper-shoe area comfort for areas that contact the skin. It also has a foam insole liner that has cushioning and rebound properties, as well as being anti-microbial. The heel area is also supposed to be well-protected from shock, as are other points of impact on the foot, like the ball.
