The Kinvara is without a doubt Saucony’s flagship neutral lightweight runningshoe. Ever since its first introduction 4 years ago, the shoe has gained a broad range of fans worldwide in the running community. In a few months time we will see its fifth installment, the Kinvara 5. Several updates to the Kinvara 5 were made as a result of requests for more durability. Previous Kinvaras featured a mono-filament mesh that was great for its lightweight and breathable characteristics, but for the Kinvara 5 Saucony chose a new mesh that, while still lightweight, offers more flexibility and durability than before. The Kinvara 5 midsole/outsole platform is also new, and made from an enhanced EVA+ material with better abrasion resistance than ever before.
The Kinvara 5 is set for a May 2014 release.
