The 5th version of the Saucony Kinvara is still one of the lightest shoes we carry, and has some beneficial changes to make it a great light trainer or extra cushioned racing shoe.
The upper has a new fine mesh with ‘Flexfilm’ overlays to provide breathability and is more durable.
Additionally, there is a PRO-LOCK® dynamic fit system that moves and stretches making the shoe feel like an extension of the foot.
The Saucony Kinvara has a snugger, new cushion-y heel collar with RunDry® for moisture-wicking properties, and a little more room in the forefoot for great comfort and a better fit.
The midsole/outsole has an enhanced EVA+ material and new placement of rubber on the lateral side of the outsole for better abrasion resistance and durability.
It keeps with the lower heel drop, 4mm, accommodating conventional heel strikers and midfoot strikers as well.
The new Kinvara 5 delivers a fast, yet cushioned shoe that is sure to please veterans of the previous models and anyone looking for comfort in a light package.
