As you’ve come to expect from Saucony, the Kinvara is comfortable right out of the box. It feels like a skillful and seemingly impossible combo of plush cushion and bounce underfoot (that’s the addition of Saucony’s proprietary EVERUN topsole). What’s more, the toe-box is extra roomy, thanks to breathable engineered mesh that both holds the foot and stretches for optimal wiggle room and toe off. The cushioning and cut around the heel and ankle is so comfortable it goes without notice and, the flat laces and lightweight overlays work in tandem for an even lace-up from the top of the shoe to the tongue.
