The Saucony ride is a great example of the 'KISS' principle (keep it simple, stupid!). It features an EVA-foam midsole, the fit is comfortable without histrionics, and the stack isn't overly high (though newer models are adding a bit of extra height).
In today's running industry, shoes are getting so engineered and specialized that it can be hard to know what you're getting. That's not the Ride. The Ride is a versatile running shoe that delivers what you want from an everyday running shoe.
