The Avi-Lite Guidance is an old-school motion stabilizing shoe, now up to its sixth iteration. Its focus is on support and stability, with a priority on cushioning and it features a semi-straight last to cater to lower-arched feet. The upper is closed mesh with traditional synthetics - both leather and suede overlays providing structure to the shoe and multiple lacing options allowing a secure fit.
Manufacturers Product Info
The 860 has been a stable and reliable platform for runners with a preference for the fit and feel of New Balance stability shoes. Version 3 continues with that mission, continuing to nudge the technology and execution of successful production.
The ProGrid Guide is Saucony’s workhorse motion stabilizing shoe and round 6 picks up where round 5 left off without missing a beat. As with Saucony's other mainline models it has featured an 8-millimeter heel-to-toe drop, now for a second round, and those that give it a try have found an efficient heel-to-toe transition.
The Faas series is about light, nimble shoes, with a resilient bounce. The 500 v2 is the first of the line to reach an update (though the 300 joins it, with significant changes), and it is aimed at strengthening the ethos of the series.
The 1080 is the top Neutral running shoe in the New Balance line. Because of the effectiveness of the changes that resulted in the v2, round 3 has its focus on subtle changes to nudge progress.
