Building on its award winning pedigree, the Kinvara 4 is a perfect synthesis of celebrated design elements from previous versions. Kinvara loyalists will love the upgrade from ProGrid to PowerGrid in the heel landing zone for even smoother transitions and an improved overall ride (PowerGrid is a lighter yet more durable compound than ProGrid), in addition to the redesigned upper continuing to utilize FlexFilm for a lightweight, natural feel in the forefoot and toebox areas Weight: 7.7 oz. / 218 g.

Kinvara 4 – The Future of Fast

By: Chris M.

It’s hard to believe that we’re already talking about the 4th generation of the Kinvara. It doesn’t seem like that long ago we were crafting the very first prototypes of what would eventually become the Kinvara 1. Over the years I’ve heard so many stories about how the Kinvara started and where it came from, etc (as though it has developed its own lore), but for myself and the team, we know the real story, and as a result of all that hard work – we’ve created an industry leader.

Runners and athletes usually develop a bond with their equipment. So it’s always interesting to read the message boards or Facebook posts to see peoples’ reactions to the new products we make, but more specifically the passion surrounding the Kinvara is amazing. The emotional reaction to the shoe definitely puts a lot of pressure on us when we update it, but ultimately that pressure pushes us into designing/developing better performing products.

For the Kinvara 4, we upgraded the heel insert to our PowerGrid material, which helps to improve the cushioning level of this shoe. We’ve also adjusted the FlexFilm overlays from the Kinvara 3 to the 4. By exposing more mesh in the forefoot, we improved breathability while still maintaining great lockdown, and conversely we added more FlexFilm in the midfoot and heel area to really help frame and secure the foot through all phases of your gait.

So on behalf of myself and the rest of the design/development team, we present to you the Kinvara 4 for the first time – Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing shoes! I have now owned three pairs of the Kinvara 4's and I have no regrets with each purchase. The Kinvara 4's are lightweight, comfortable, and still give enough support for long races such as the marathon. I have raced every distance from 5k to the full marathon in the Kinvara 4's. Although I prefer more of a racing flat for any distance below a 15k, the Kinvara 4's are my Go-To shoe for the half marathon and full marathon. Simply put, these are amazing shoes! April 2, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Overall good shoe First time buying Saucony tennis shoes. The shoe is light on my feet and comfortable. The shoe could use a little more cushion, but no complaints. So far so good. Hope to order more soon. March 18, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I will never wear another pair of running shoes! I've worn this shoe from the first kinvara and just love them, I run long distances and have worn them in every race and you can't go wrong. I work in a shoe department and I always recommend saucony to all the customers and they love them! February 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by these shoes are my favorite saucony shoe so far i've ran in Saucony shoes almost my whole running career. I made the decision to switch to the Kinvara looking for a shoe with a smaller drop in the heel, and wow was I impressed. the shoe feels fantastic, feels very stable, and breaths very well. despite how light these shoes are they give me phenomenal support. the only complaint that I have about this shoe is that the fabric in front of the shoe is very fragile. shortly after only a month of owning them the fabric started to tear at the big toe and pinky toe on both shoes. besides that ive never been happier in any other shoes. I would definitely recommend these shoes. February 23, 2014
