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 :-)))
My all time favorite shoe
I run a leisurely pace and only put in about 10-15 miles per week.
These shoes only weigh in at about 6oz's! REALLY?? Incredible, I put in a pair of gel sport inserts and it feels like i am running with bare feet on clouds!!
so enjoyable when i go out for a 3-4 mile run it is not uncommon i wind up putting in 5-6 and even 7!.
Love these shoes. And the shocking aqua blue and lime green color combo is awesome!
Thanks for making a great pair of shoes!
The best update ever!!
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.

Kinvaras never let me down
These are my third generation and fourth pair of Kinvaras. Just like other generations these needed no break-in. The first time I wore them was to run a hilly 15k. Comfy and fast, no pain during or after. I'm hoping they don't break down as quickly as previous versions but even if they do they are worth the purchase. Sounds like this is pretty typical of many low profile shoes.

home run saucony!
After the slight mess up on the Kinvara 3 over lay Saucony aced the upper on the 5! The toe box does not bunch up or create any blister causing folds on your toes and the extra support in the center over lay does a great job of controlling any unwanted movement from the mid foot. Not only that, the cushioning went from a comfy to Cadillac!
I was not impressed with this shoe out of the box, thought the arch was too high and color too bright. Previous 4 running shoes had been a version of Nike Free. Two factors led me to choosing a new shoe- running marathon in June and getting pain on little toe with running longer distance while in Free Flyknit. Last couple runs at 6-8 miles with Kinvara and my feet feel great.
Great shoe! Surprisingly great on trails
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 .
Fifth pair of Kinvaras
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.
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.
Good shoe to change to
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.
These were fabulous (even sockless!) right out of the box. I forget I have them on, they are so comfortable. I have shin issues with some shoes, but have had none with these--about 70 miles on them so far. Love love love.
Great Running Shoe
I have had kinvaras since the third generation and they have been great for me! I have had no issues with support or the structure of the shoe. I have used them for track and cross country.
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.
I had Kinvara 3s and these replaced them. I wear them with SuperFeet. I am very happy.

My favorite trainers!
Super comfortable and they weigh next to nothing. These are the best Kinvaras yet.
Great "serious" walking shoe.
