Although I used to be a 100 percent Asics girl, over the past few years, I’ve become a little more brand agnostic
I branched out and tried some Brooks Adrenalines (which weren’t my favorite) and then moved on to some Nikes to train for the San Francisco Marathon last year-
They worked like a dream….then I (or rather my legs) broke down.
After returning to running earlier this year, I decided to come back to Asics and tried the Gel Blur 33, which were a great all around (and very bright) shoe.
Then earlier this year, I started seeing a lot of buzz about the Saucony Kinvara 4, so I decided to try it out.
And I’m SO happy I did.
After months of feeling so-so about running and doing nothing more than three or so miles, I feel like I have found my strong. Okay, the longest run I’ve done is five miles, but that feels like a marathon at this point
So you must be wondering what makes these shoes so special aside from the fact that they’re BRIGHT purple.
Here are a few of the many amazing features that make the Kinvara 4 so amazing:
- The booty-No, not that booty. The interior of the Kinvara 4 is constructed so that it has a nice sock-like fit and a HydraMax collar keeps your foot sweat free.
- Light as a Feather-The Kinvara 4 is made of EVA foam, which is lighter than rubber and helps the shoe clock in at just under 7 ounces.
- Flex It-The upper of the shoe is constructed of FlexFilm, a strong material that adapts to your foot with fewer layers.
I could go on and on about how much I love my Saucony Kinvara 4s, but we’d be here for days an no one wants that. For more info, click on the image below to check out the official Runner’s World video review-
