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.

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.

POWERGRID

Saucony PowerGrid Technology

PowerGrid is a lightweight, ultra-premium cushioning foam that, ounce for ounce, delivers a smoother and more rebound-filled ride than the competition.

ULTRA LIGHTWEIGHT

Saucony Ultra Light Weight Technology

Feather-light materials combine with high-tech performance technologies to keep you moving at the speed of, you guessed it, light.

Saucony is my brand! I love the color on the blue shoes - it's one of the better styles that Saucony has made. I know I have to keep buying Saucony running shoes because they are always the most comfortable and sturdy. At the same time they feel like air. Great shoes.

Fabulous Running Shoe As an avid runner, I have been a loyal Saucony fan for several years now. So, when it was time for a new pair I came straight to the Saucony website. I ultimately decided on the Kinvara 5 because of its many great features. My previous pair were the Kinvara 3, which I loved, but I would have to say I am even happier with the 5. They are oh-so incredibly comfortable and the amount of support is perfect. I've worn them on the trail and to the gym as they are an all-around great shoe for both running and working out. I am very satisfied with the Kinvara 5 and can't wait to run my next 10k in them!

Neutral transition Love the Kinvara! Have been running in these for about 100 miles and they make for a smooth transition from guidance/stability to neutral running shoe. I wanted lightweight and these are SUPER light! My only complaint is that I don't expect they will last very long. I'd say I have another 100 miles left, tops, before they expire. But at the price, I don't mind the shorter lifespan. I've run two half marathons (as well as many training runs) and for a neutral, lightweight shoe they perform really well- no major aches or pains.
