SAUCONY kinvara 4


Saucony Kinvara 4

The funnest part about testing out the latest Saucony is discovering the subtle differences in each shoe.  The KINVARA shoe in general has been widely received and has a strong following.  Triathletes love the lightweight shoe and the soft minimal structure in the sole, the upper, and the footbed.  

This was my first experience with KINVARA.  Having tested many other Saucony road shoes this is definetely the one that works the best as a race flat.  The lightest fully laced shoe that gives you everything while still feeling like you have on a  soft slipper.  I threw some YANKZ in it immediately and have logged more than 100 miles on the shoes.  The sole still feels cushiony and super comfortable.  The EVA foam is some of the lightest you will ever experience.

The styling of the KINVARA I tested is RACE me RED.  The accent the the flex film provides are smooth and provide structure not just a cool visual.  The material under the flex film is very breathable.  I raced in these shoes 5 seperate times and had a great experience everytime.  

An interesting side note.  I have used these shoes for several workouts at .  These shoes were the best gym shoes I have ever used.  On a scale of 1-5 5 being best these are a lucky 7.
