    Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Kinvara 3 Running Shoe:

    I have run in all editions of the Kinvaras. I have also ran in Nike Frees and New Balance 1400 in the search for the perfect shoe. The Nike Free was not enough cushioning for longer runs while the New Balance had too high a heel drop (11mm). The Kinvaras are the perfect balance for someone looking to go faster, run closer to the ground, but not give up all of the cushioning. The toebox on the 3rd edition is a bit larger. Which for me, was a blessing considering the pinch I would feel with the 2nd edition.
    Great shoe. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Kinvara 3 Running Shoe:

      i'm a neutral runner. i mainly train for, and run marathons in this shoe. i wear it frequently on dirt roads. If i remember correctly, the Kinvara 3 was supposed to be an improvement over the Kinvara 2 by providing more durability and widening the toebox a bit.

      However, for my foot, it is a little bit too wide. I'm a fairly efficient runner, and i've gotten over 700 miles out of the 2's, so i haven't seen a big improvement in the outsole durability. the upper seems to hold up a bit better. The 1's used to tear by the toe box.

        Good shoes for the gym and moderate running (up to 12 miles per week), but do wear out a little quicker than I'd like. This is my second pair though. The fit and lightness doesn't get any better.

            The shoes fit well, ordered half size larger based on sizing information from road runner. Like the soft spongy heel when going down hill. The shoes are very light and provide solid comfort and stability.

              Lightweight shoes that I can run forever wearing. I bought three pairs when I learned that the Kinvara 3 wasn't being manufactured anymore and there aren't yet plans for a Kinvara 4. I've been wearing Kinvaras since the first generation. Not only would I recommend them for a friend, I just bought a pair for one. He loves them too.

                This is an awesome shoe! I'm not a small guy, so I was hesitant to get a light weight, "minimalist" shoe. But this shoe has exceeded all my expectations. My knees actually hurt much less than in my previous shoe which had a much thicker sole. And I actually feel faster with these shoes!

                  I have run a full marathon, a half marathon and a few 5Ks with this shoe. I use it for everyday training, long runs, speed work and hills. I find this shoe to be the perfect balance of cushioning and low drop (4mm) to help with toe/mid-foot striking.

                  I have purchased my 3rd pair and have switched to this running shoe after using Asics 20xx series for over 15 years.

                  I was looking for a lighter shoe with a 4mm drop that still had ample cushioning to use on a daily basis. The Kinvara fits the bill. The toe box feels great and has helped reduce blistering and toe nail issues. I will be continuning to use the Kinvara for the foreseeable future.

                        Kinvara purchase is my second pair of 4mm offset shoes (Brooks PureFlow 2 was my first). I really like the flatter 4mm shoes and am looking to find my 'long term' solution. Both shoes are very good and offer a similar mid-foot strike for my running style. Both are very light (Kinvaras weigh slightly less) and comfortable. The primary advantage of the Kinvara is wet surface traction - particularly wet hard surfaces. The Brooks provide more cushioning and I have grown to like the feel of the offset lacing with the semi integrated upper.
                        Bottom line, the Brooks will remain my everyday and longer distance shoes. Kinvaras for wet days, speed work, and racing.
                        One caution...if you are new to 4mm offset shoes, I would recommend a gradual transition.

                          Two years ago I made the decision to start transitioning to lighter shoes from my Asics Gel 2170's. I'm a older runner (60) and a mild pronator who typically runs over 50 miles/week. After trying Nike Free's I put on a pair of Kinvara's and was hooked from the minute I put them on. Initially I only used them for intervals/tempo runs but last fall I ran a half marathon in them and this spring ran a 30k race. They're a great lightweight trainer offering some conditioning and support.

                            I Run 40-50 miles a week on pavement in this shoe. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no transitional period to switch to a minimal running shoe.

                                Have been running in the Nike Free model. With the sole on these (Frees) unable to run on crushed gravel trail. Decided to give the Saucony's a go. Good shoe with added cushioning. Will use for trails and longer runs.

                                    I use these for races or fast runs.

                                    They don't provide enough support for everyday training runs, but I love wearing them.

                                        This a great shoe. I own 3 pair. This is the shoe I had been looking for. It allows the foot to do what it wants to do naturally.

                                          I've gone through at least 10 pairs of Kinvaras since their initial release several years ago. I've always loved them. I was drawn to them after a botched attempt with vibram five fingers. They seemed like a good middle ground between extreme minimalist and clod hopper. I've run as long as 50 miles in them with no issues. Between the version 1 and 2 nothing really changed. This version is more of an overhaul. The uppers seem a little more durable and the midsole keeps the same characteristics as the original. Still love this shoe.

                                            Use this for normal walking and for yoga exercises. The shoes look greta and I love the color.

                                            I wore this shoe in a half marathon yesterday and it was so light if barely felt like it was there. My feet and legs felt great after the run. I would recommend this shoe, but might suggest going for a wider size.

                                              I got this shoe about a month ago and not regretting it. They are very light and durable with out cutting down on cushioning. I love the Progrid and it gives me a lot of traction even in wet conditions. If u r looking for a minimalist shoe but like a lot of cushioning then this is the shoe for u.

                                              With about 30 miles a week and 8 weeks into the season on a mix of roads, sidewalk, gravel trails, and single-tracks I am overall quite happy with this product. It is very light, cool, fast, and comfortable. I used this for practices and 5k races and I could say that the quality is sub-par. The out sole, or lack of, for there is pretty much just a foam mid sole that is making contact with the ground wears out very quickly and has little traction, this could be due to the transition period between my previous shoe and some of the dynamic stretching that can be hard on the shoe. This can be a problem on wet, muddy, and/or steep dirt surfaces. Another point of wear is where the the pinkie toe meets the toe box, after a race (it was dry and rocky) I noticed 2 adjacent, 2mm tears in between 2 strips of the flexfilm between the strip forward of the bottom of the laces and the forward-most strip on the right side of the right shoe. Other than those 2 problems this is a awesome shoe and if only Saucony made a shoe in between the Kinvara and the Kinvara TR I would be in heaven. Bottom line, this is a great shoe, but it could be better.

                                                Great shoe! Light weight, true to size and roomy in the box. Downside the shoe just wasnt the right one for me. Loved them right out of the box and no need to break in just start running!!! After several weeks I had to send back, impact was felt a bit in my knees and lower back. To little shoe for me I guess. Went from a stability PLUS to this as I wanted to try a minimal shoe... BAD IDEA

                                                  I am training for a marathon and wanted a durable, light and easy on impact shoe, I think i founded such with the kinvaras, however I feel they give up some of the speed of other lighter shoes. I am not sold on the high heel cushioning support structure,I feel to much pressure on the back of my heel.
                                                  I recommend them for recovery and slower runs.

                                                    I use my Kinvaras for my long runs.
                                                    Feet feel fine after the run (that's a first).
                                                    No knee (or any) injuries since converting to Kinvaras.
