Well, it was a matter of time before I slipped my feet into the new Kinvara 4 from Saucony. After my love affair with the Kinvara 3 and the subsequent review (Watch the review HERE), I was hoping for 2 things: that I’d love the 4 more and that the shoe would be improved upon. Well, as it turns out, I love the shoe equally (not a bad thing) and the shoe has some improvements, but they don’t necessarily deem the shoe worthy of an upgrade.

Overall, I love the light, fast & flexible design of the Kinvara 4. It sticks true to it’s roots in that sense. Saucony does trim the heel cup a bit which cured the achilles-chaffing-issue they suffered with the 3, but they also reduced the flexfilm on the shoe’s forefoot upper which may have lead to some premature wear-through. They shoe doesn’t suffer from what most manufacturers do when they have a good thing and that’s ruin it. By no means is this shoe ruined from the 3. It’s a solid predecessor that should replace your Kinvara 3s as soon as they are worn out (or after you buy every last Kinvara 3 in your size for half the cost of the Kinvara 4).
