Saucony Guide 7

One of my favorite things growing up was when I got to go back to school shopping and get a new pair of shoes for the year.  Those days, I opted for a cool pair of Vans.  I thought I was just SO COOL.

Now I get excited about new running shoes! I picked up a pair of Saucony Guide 7‘s at Running, Etc this weekend.  They offered to show me other shoes, but I like my old standby shoe for now.  Why fix what ain’t broke?

I’ve been wearing the Guide 6’s since 2012 but hadn’t updated to the 7’s yet.  I realized that I have been wearing my last pair way past their welcome.

Other than some slight changes to their color schemes, I haven’t noticed much of a difference.  I’m not a shoe expert – I know there are probably some structural changes, but none that I can notice.

Any other Saucony Guide lovers out there? Do you have a “standby” favorite running shoe? What kind of shoes did you like to wear as a teenager?
