Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Kinvara TR Trail Running Shoe:

First off, I should say up front, I like this shoe and will buy another pair, but this shoe is not designed for really rugged single track, goat path running you do with friends in the middle of the night in a closed because of furlough national park!

When I bought this shoe, I was looking for a lighter, quicker, more flashy replacement to my saucony peregrines, which I love, but really, after getting them wet, you feel like your wearing bricks, and they fit that bill perfectly. Even after a 60 minute trail run in the rain, the kinvara TR's were nice and light on my feet. Sadly the things I don't like about the shoes, also happened during that 60 minute run in the rain. The first was chaffing from the tongue, where it is connected to the front part of the upper, since it is sewn in, it had a little left over, of about a quarter inch, and if you combine wet cloth with wet skin, you are going to end with chaffage in a bad way, and boy! Did I end up with chaffage. The second thing I am not happy with, is the wearing already of some of the nubs on the outside edge of the shoe, after my run in the rain, I took them off in my office to let them air dry and you could already see large patches of the nubs, starting to show wear.

Question is, would I buy them again! Answer most definitely
Question is, do I feel they are a good value! Answer yes I do
Question is, would I recommend them to my friends! Yes I certainly would

    At nearly "70" years old my knees lite up with too much road running. For trails and unpaved terrain this shoe was a real find and another great shoe from our friends at Saucony.

        This shoe is the only pair of Sauconys I didn't love (and I have owned a lot). Narrow toe box and toe turns up (like an elf shoe). I am giving them to charity.

          Maybe the best trail shoe I've ever had (40 years). 100% off-road runner/walker. Great fit, light, comfortable, good outer sole; rock-stop plate is a serious bonus. Almost always wear a 10 running shoe. 10 works here too.

            Train about 100 miles per week,switched from brooks cascadia to saucony kinvara TR in september of last year.It takes a little while to transition as this is as close to a truly minimal shoe you can get while still providing enough protection for long distance running.Definitely buy a half size larger than normal as it is a slim fit.Traction is amazing on all surfaces and the thin sole lets you feel what is under foot and re-act quickly.Can't wait to start racing in this shoe!

            Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Kinvara TR Trail Running Shoe:

            I was really excited to try the Kinvara TR. I'm on my 4th pair of Kinvara's (1's and 2's, have not tried the 3's yet). The TR has different tread, which is good for all the dry and rocky terrain I run on. The shoe is much narrower than the road Kinvara's. The heal sole area is narrow. The rock plate is not very effective, better than nothing but not by much. The tongue has an odd shape at the top and tends to come out of the shoe. I will probably go back to the Peregrine even with the added weight or possibly try the True Grit.

            Always been a fan of the Kinvaras, but was a little dissappointed when I put on my TRs. I always buy a 12.5, but a 12.5 in the TRs was a little snug and narrow. The shoes stretched out some after a few runs, but if I order these again I will go with 13s. Order 1/2 size up in these.
