Saucony Kinvara 8
Product Details
We upgraded our fan favorite Kinvara, while keeping it true to its sole in the eighth edition. We added a full-length EVERUNTM topsole for more energy return and stripped down its upper for a more comfortable form fit.

Technology

4MM

Saucony 4mm Technology

Shoes with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset deliver a more natural ride, letting your feet and body do more work while relying less on the shoes’ cushioning and stability features.

EVERUN

Saucony EVERUN Technology

A breakthrough in cushioning. Livelier and more responsive, with smoother landings and stronger takeoff.

FLEXFILM

Saucony Flexfilm Technology

A strong, lightweight material is melded to the upper, which allows for fewer layers in the shoe. The result is a seamless, flexible feel.

Kinvara 8 Infograph

Cushioning

The underfoot feel and amount of impact protection provided by the compressing materials between the foot and running surface.

Support

The level of pronation control built into the shoe. Pronation is the inward rolling of the ankle through the gait cycle.

Offset

The difference in height between the heel thickness and forefoot thickness of the shoe.

Can be used for any distance This is my go to shoe for every distance. The great cushioning added to how light it is meant that it was perfect for marathon training and racing this year. They're light and responsive enough though to also be used for shorter sessions and 5k/10k races.

Great faster paced shoe but also great as a general running shoe Ran Birmingham International Marathon in these last month. My first marathon for a few years. With a chronic Achilles condition was worried about my shoe choice. The Marathon does find you out. I finished runner up and even more impressive was how quickly my legs recovered. These shoes played a big part in that quick recovery. Perfect blend of being light yet cushioned. My calves and heel owe a big thanks to the Kinvara.

Good Shoe, Shrinking Toebox This is the best version of the Kinvara since the 5. Great cushion, lightweight upper, good flex. I really want to like these shoes. Unfortunately, Saucony has significantly shrunk the toebox from previous versions. You'll need to size up half a size to get a decent fit. I have fat feet so every shoe is narrow, but these are getting to the point of unwearable. I loved the 5's because they had a wide toebox. I just wish we could either get width options or not design lightweight running shoes for the narrowest foot.

Took away my knee problems This is a great product I always thought that shoes were shoes until I experience knee problems. I was recommended to go to a running store and which I tried on several brand of shoes. I found this one shoe that fit like a glove light as a feather and gave me the heart of Forrest Gump. Every since I got this shoe I have not stopped running.

Good Shoe, but "Everun" = shorter life I've run 7,985 miles in seventeen pairs of Kinvaras since I switched to the Kinvara 3 back in October of 2012 (from the Mirage). That averages 469 miles per pair. My last Kinvara 6 hit 504 miles last Monday. By contrast, my two "Everun" pairs - a Kinvara 7, at 324 miles, and a Kinvara 8, at 402 miles - both feel shot. I generally retire shoes if they make it to 500 miles, but with no more ProGrid Kinvaras being made, I'm seriously thinking of keeping that last pair in circulation a little longer. Basically, I find that the "Everun" sole feels marginally better than the old "ProGrid" sole for about 150 miles, then quickly starts to fail, while the old "ProGrid" soles would degrade much more slowly. The Kinvara continues to be a good shoe, and I don't want to switch to a new shoe, but the constant changes have me considering it. The Kinvara 8 is very different from the Kinvara 3, which I chose because it was a perfect shoe for my needs. There's no such thing as a perfect shoe, but when you find what works for you, it would be nice if they didn't keep screwing it up. I wish shoe companies would leave a shoe model alone. If they want to introduce a new Everun sole for people who like the nice feel it gives for a few miles, introduce a new shoe for that. Leave the Kinvara alone.
