Saucony Kinvara - Looking for a Lightweight, Comfortable, Everyday Running Shoe?

Updated on July 8, 2014

Saucony Kinvar3 Running Shoes - An Updated Look

I think I'd like working for the design team that make Saucony Kinvara running shoes. It seems common sense holds sway over there. Unlike some other shoe manufacturers, Saucony - it seems - does not feel the compunction it change things unnecessarily.

If it ain't broke....

The latest edition of the Saucony Kinvara, the Kinvara 3, the look of the shoes has been updated. But the ride, fit, and feel are very much ther same as the earlier editions of this popular running shoe.

The idea was to still provide all the elements that made this line a hit in the first place while innovationg where it makes sense.

Making the Kinvara more durable, fitting the foot better, and making the shoes softer were identified as good areas for upgrades.

An everyday training shoe. The lightweight, minimalist running shoe is made to give runners what they need - and nothing else. Maximum performance is the goal - without the extra load of unnecessary additions. It is comfortable and still feels like it is a part of your foot.

Complimenting your natural stride instead of changing it is the goal of these minimalist shoes. At under 8 ounces, it is a bit hard to believe that the Kinvara 3 has so much subtle technology build into it's sleek design.

Carbon rubber was added in specific places to the outsole - but only after examining hundreds of test shoes. For a better fit, memory foam heel pods were anatomically contoured. Even the heel crach pads have been beveled to give you a smoother ride.

Transition SLOWLY To Minimalist Running

It's important that you take the transition to running in a pair of minimalist running shoes slowly. Muscles throughout your body will be engaged differently. You'll be landing differently and this could lead to injury if you are not careful.

You'll be landing more level on your mid foot instead of landing on your heel.
