      I bought this shoe for my daughter after she began having trouble with a different brand shoe. She wore that type of shoe for 2 years without problems and after her 3rd pair began having some issues with her arches. She has been wearing this shoe for the past month with no problems.

        This is the perfect shoe for me. I have a light frame, a mid to forefoot strike, and my longest run each week is 10 miles; the others are 3-5. I have been running for 35 years and have had only one injury in my life. Not sure how it would work for the biomechanically "challenged" heavier runner.

          I love this shoe for speed training. It is light, and felt completely comfortable from the moment I put them on. It has noticeably less cushioning than what I would wear for a run over 10 miles. My feet get really achy anyhow, but for shorter faster runs, the Kinvara is fantastic.

            I bought these running shoes as a gift for my wife since she has the Kinvara 3 and Kinvara 4 and I thought it would be a nice addition for her collection. She is very happy with this new version of the Kinvara, she told me "these shoes are very confortable, light, they breath nicely and provide great support for short and long runs". I defenitely will buy a pair for me a soon as I need them.

              These shoes are fantastic. They are light without being completely unsupportive -- they feel cushy yet quick. I had originally intended to use these for shorter runs, but after putting a few miles on them, I definitely intend to run my fall marathon in a pair of these.

              Comments about Womens Saucony Kinvara 5 Running Shoe:

              The only thing I can say about these is I wish there was more cushioning in them. BUT, I just slip in sport gel inserts and they are -OH MY GOSH!!!

              When I first put them on I honestly thought "my feet feel lighter." Just what I was looking for. I have a pair of the Kinvara 2's and really need to thow them out but they are also so light I didn't want to until I found a replacement pair. These fit that bill perfectly.

              I have OA so I really need the extra cushioning but so many shoes add so much weight with that option. I also have 2 pairs of the Asics Gel-cumulus 15's and love those also and they are my "long run" shoes. Although tomorrow is my long run day and I may just have to wear these :-)))

                I bought these on the recommendation of a soldier turned triathlete . And, he was right, they are great . I have done 6 miles of speed training and 9 miles on mountain trails. They have performed perfectly. I will be wearing them in an upcoming 10 k trail run as well as a half marathon in the next two weeks .

                  These shoes were super comfy right out of the box. Have a sock like feeling. No blisters and so light weight its like nothing on your feet, yet enough cushion so you don't feel rocks etc. Love them.
