The Saucony ProGrid Kinvara
The Saucony ProGrid Kinvara

Here is the review of the Saucony ProGrid Kinvara. After running in the shoe for awhile, I do have to say that I like it and think it’s a fantastic reduced running shoe. The Kinvara does a lot of things well, but not everything right. As a hugely affordable entry into the reduced running shoe market, I would highly recommend the Kinvara. While I’d still choose my Newtons over the Kinvara, it represents a possible surge in running brands filling the void of minimal and reduced running shoes.

If this is a sign of products to come, I full heartedly support the push! You really can’t beat the price. I ended up spending $58 on my pair from online retailer, at the beginning of the year. I include the Kinvara in my training arsenal as the shoe I don’t mind getting beat up on trails, in weather or on shorter runs. I’ll throw it into the mix maybe once or twice every 2 weeks.

If you’re just getting into forefoot/natural running, don’t hesitate to check out the Kinvara. (note: I did not recieve my pair for free)
