Saucony Guide 10 provides a very cushy, smooth, and comfortable ride to overpronators. Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 offers stability and support in a well-cushioned package.

The Saucony Guide 10 and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 are stability running shoes with the Saucony Guide 10 being for moderate overpronators and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 for moderate to severe overpronators.

ADVERTISEMENTS

The differences in the amount of support provided are immediately visible when one looks at the uppers of these two running shoes.

Whereas the Saucony Guide 10 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com has mesh and no-sew overlays in its upper, the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 comes with mesh, no-sew overlays, and some stitches.

In particular, the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com comes with sturdier overlays that wrap the midfoot.

These overlays have stitches at the back but not at the front to keep the fit secure but comfortable.

The Saucony Guide 10 has quite a bit of light no-sew overlays around the midfoot to lock your foot down, but the hold should be a bit looser than that of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3.

The Saucony Guide 10 also comes with light no-sew overlays on the toe box, while the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is free from overlays in that area. However, the laces hook into straps that run under the mesh and the mesh has some structure to hold things together.

Another difference is that the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 comes with an external heel counter that hooks behind the heel, while the Saucony Guide 10 only provides overlays at the back.

All in all, you can expect to get a bit more support from the upper of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 than you would get from the upper of the Saucony Guide 10, and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 would accomodate big bunions better.

Both the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Guide 10 are for overpronators, but the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 also serves severe overpronators.

This difference in support is somewhat visible in the midsoles of the running shoes, where the medial post of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is much longer than that of the Saucony Guide 10. However, it does not go as high as that of the Saucony Guide 10.

In any case, you should be able to get a good amount of stability and support from either running shoe, thereby keeping in mind that the support given by the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 is more spread out and suitable for runners who tend to roll their feet inward way past the midfoot.

The landing zone under the heel is quite similar in both running shoes and both come with an EVERUN topsole for enhanced energy return and cushioning during your runs.

Both the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 and the Saucony Guide 10 are rated as being plush by Saucony, and running shoe lab tests have shown in the past that both running shoe models tend to deliver a good amount of cushioning to runners.

The Saucony Guide 10 has a very cushy forefoot and quite a cushy heel for men, in particular.

The outsoles of the two running shoes also look quite similar with a zigzag pattern in the forefoot that has a good amount of flex grooves.

Such flex grooves help increase the flexibility of a running shoe, and the separation under the heel helps dissipate shock.

Running shoe lab tests show that the Saucony Guide 10 displays and average amount of flexibility.

Historically, the Saucony Hurricane ISO has always been on the stiffer end of the spectrum, but this is good for heavier runners who can handle it and who need more support.

The Saucony Guide 10 and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 provide a good amount of ground contact, which should help runners achieve smoother heel-to-toe transitions.

The women's version of the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 weighs approximately 9.7 oz (275 grams), and the Saucony Guide 10 for women weighs 8.4 oz (238 grams).

The men's versions of the running shoes weigh 10.9 oz (309 grams) and 10.1 oz (286 grams), respectively, with the Saucony Guide 10 being the lightest.

The Saucony Guide 10 and the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 have a lot in common when it comes to providing runners with stability, support, and a soft ride.

However, if you know that you will be needing a lot of stability and support, you may want to look into the Saucony Hurricane ISO 3 more than the Saucony Guide 10.

The Saucony Guide 10 is good for lighter runners who do not overpronate severely and runners who want a somewhat lighter running shoe on their feet.
