Just took these for their first run through the still-cold, still-treacherous streets of the Chicago Winter That Wouldn't Die. I'm impressed. They're SO light for trail shoes. The fit reminds me of my old Kinvara 1s (which I loved and wore until they were in tatters) more than my Kinvara 3s. As with the 1s, there's just as much sole as you need, but not a whisper more. I have no idea how Saucony managed to combine Kinvara lightness with trail ruggedness, but wow, it works. Traction's great, and as another reviewer mentioned, the soles are also well suited for cycling. And the red-orange is fantastic--I want to run just looking at these shoes.
I was a little concerned about some stiffness in the midsole when I took the shoes out of the box, but it wasn't an issue once I got out on the road. I rotate between a few pairs of Sauconys for most of my training, and the sole of the TR2s feels a lot less squishy than my Virratas, and thinner than my Kinvara 3s. For whatever that's worth.
These are still too new for me to speak to their durability, but if they hold up, I suspect I'll want another pair.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by HannaO613 I love this shoe!
I love this shoe! I only wear Saucony and have tried many different styles of shoe, but this is by far my favorite. It is a little narrower than the Kinvara 4, but it is extremely light weight and the fabric seems to be more durable. I own 4 pairs of the Kinvara 4's, and every pair has developed a hole in the top mesh in 6 months or less. The Kinvara TR2's have yet to do that. Very sleek and not bulky at all which I love, and they are great for outdoor or indoor running. They're also great for spin classes too since they are slimmer and fit in and grip to the bike petals better. Added bonus for me as an avid runner/spinner.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Virginia Great shoe..
Will only use Saucony shoes. Great shoe, training for a marathon and have been looking for a comfortable shoe for the long runs, wore them today and they were perfect, was able to complete the run without walking. Beautiful shoe as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 Great light trail shoe, runs too narrow!
I used the shoe fitter on the website and compared my other Saucony shoes to the Kinvara TR 2. According to it, the Kinvara TR 2 would have the same fit, however they were too narrow and caused pain in my right arch. They're extremely light for a trail shoe which is ideal, but unfortunately I will have to return them. I wish Saucony made these in widths!
