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: 6.7 oz. / 190 g (size 8)

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 4 out of 5 by Extremely Light Weight My all time favorite shoe, the Kinvara 3, has been updated. I am still in the "break in" phase on this new pair, but the fit, comfort and light weight features that I love appear to be the same. April 6, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by love it Wow! Its been years since I've ran in Saucony and I am glad to be back. Super light with great support, soft and flexible. Didn't need to break them in, first run felt great. April 5, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Comfortable but wear out quickly I got these shoes because I wanted a light trainer. They are indeed light weight and very comfortable to run in. Unfortunately they wear out within 3 months of use. The material is flimsy and it begins to tear around the pinky toes after about a month. I really love running in these shoes so it is my hope they fix the quality issue in the next version of the Kinvara. April 2, 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Wears out quickly I've been wearing the Kinvara for a couple of years and was anxious to try the 4. My husband tried it first and his pair started tearing by the pinky toe. He's hard on shoes so I didn't think much of it until mine did the same with about 200 mikes on them. I'm an acid runner and can't replace shoes every 200 miles. I also alternate shoes to let them rest. I'll be changing shoes until they fix this issue. March 28, 2014
