SHOE-IN

Canadian Running - - GREAT STRIDES - Sau­cony Kin­vara 10 Men: 221 g (7.8 oz. ) Women: 190 g (6.7 oz.) Drop Ra­tio: 4 mm $140

The Kin­vara’s mor­phed con­sid­er­ably over the years since the re­lease of the orig­i­nal 1, from a flex­i­ble fit to a stiffer, more sup­port­ive shoe for longer train­ing runs and races. In this, its tenth it­er­a­tion, Sau­cony hear­kens back to the Kin­vara’s roots, with a com­fort­able shoe, suit­able for both train­ing and rac­ing and no­tice­ably less con­straint in the up­per.

The 10 fea­tures Sau­cony’s EVERUN Top­sole with am­ple, flex­i­ble ma­te­rial that hugs the foot com­fort­ably. The mid­sole con­tains Sau­cony’s pro­pri­etary high-abra­sion EVA+ foam, help­ing to make the 10 a rel­a­tively light­weight shoe ver­sus other brands that use a heav­ier rub­ber ma­te­rial.

The FORMFIT ma­te­rial in the footbed molds seam­lessly to the con­tours of your fore­foot, pro­vid­ing both a cushy foot strike and stable take off.

The Kin­vara comes in men’s sizes 7–15 and women’s in 5–12. Colours for men in­clude Or­ange/Black, Blue/Black and Gun­metal Shade. Women’s come in Navy/Mint, Rose and Aqua Shade.

All told, if you’re in the mar­ket for a neu­tral shoe, you’d be hard pressed to find an­other model that stacks up to the Kin­vara 10 in terms of per­for­mance, com­fort and price point.
