the Sau­cony OF ALL THE SHOES IN range, we think this has the best chance of go­ing the dis­tance and be­com­ing a ven­er­a­ble old-stager on the run­ning cir­cuit, like the Asics Kayano 25 or the Nike Pe­ga­sus 35 (see left). The first Kin­vara came out nine years ago, so it still has a way to go. It’s evolved con­sid­er­ably from its roots as a per­for­mance shoe for heav­ier run­ners to its cur­rent guise as an every­day model for those who don’t want a big shoe but still want some cush­ion­ing. There has been some nar­row­ing of the fit on the up­per and the mid­sole is slightly stiffer than ver­sion 8, but this is es­sen­tially the same de­light­fully light-but-cush­ioned ride that it’s al­ways been.
