THE NEED-TO-KNOW

This light­weight trainer is a top­per­form­ing shoe, scor­ing ex­cep­tion­ally well with our wear testers in nearly ev­ery cat­e­gory (ex­cept trac­tion).

The Kinvara is one of the light­est shoes in the guide, yet lands in the top five for cush­ion­ing, too. That soft­ness is due, in part, to the ad­di­tion of a thin layer of pre­mium foam in the mid­sole, yield­ing lots of cush with­out ex­tra weight.

One po­ten­tial draw­back: the shoe tested stiff, but that feel im­proves the faster you run. Testers loved it right out of the box, rac­ing 5-Ks and even mak­ing it their new marathon shoe. RUN, Sports­mans Ware­house, The Sweat Shop, To­tal­sports
