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.

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.

Superb all rounder. Love the Kinvara. It's such a light and comfortable shoe and always feels "right" whether you run 5K or a marathon. Wish we could get the red/black/teal version in Ireland.

Light and speedy These are a great all round race/training shoe. Whether for those quick speed sessions or interval longer runs and come race day for those 5k to marathon runs. My favourite trainers in the past years , the colours are always getting better too, got to look good running

Fantastic Tempo Shoe Couldn't pick a better show for tempo sessions, and longer sessions/ races. Swear by this show on a weekly basis. Comfortable, light, and yet still offers an incredible amount of support.
