face off


      SAUCONY PROGRID GUIDE 5         VS        MIZUNO WAVE INSPIRE 8



I have been a Mizuno user for almost 3 years already, and one of my favorite running shoes is their Wave Inspire line. It combines both enough support for my mild overpronation without compromising cushioning (as compared to other brands) AND being lightweight also. Now, I am open to search for other brands that can provide the same answers to my needs (perfect combination of right support and cushioning and lightweightedness). I've searched the 'net and found out that Saucony seems to be the perfect match, almost identical to what Mizuno is.
