Saucony Kinvara

(repeat posting from January2011)
Saucony has jumped on the minimalist running bandwagon with the Saucony Progrid Kinvara, a 7.7oz training shoe that has a heel-toe offset of only 4mm (heel height=18mm, forefoot height=14mm thus heel:forefoot ratio is 1.2 !). The upshot: with it’s relatively flat sole, its well suited to promote a midfoot/forefoot footstrike. IF your foot type is appropriate for the shoe ! Key point !
