Saucony Kinvara 10: A classic in running shoes $110
The Saucony Kinvara is a classic. Historically the Kinvara is a very light, but exceptionally powerful shoe that is great for long-range and short-range runs. This 10th version has a few key innovations, while still keeping the shoe its usual light, breathable and FAST self.
The Kinvara has been a shoe for running fast and light with it's low profile 4mm drop. It was one of the first styles on the market to have such a low drop, and it caught on like wildfire. We still have fans at JackRabbit who reminisce about their first pair of Kinvaras (the originals!) with the look of love in their eyes.
The great news is Saucony also recognizes the impact the first Kinvaras had on so many, and are launching the tenth version with limited-edition colors of the original shoe! Grab these ones quickly Kinvara fans as soon as they arrive, because we don't expect they'll hang around for long.
Random Kinvara Fact: Want to impress your friends at your next Sunday long run? Did you know the Kinvara is actually named after a town of the same name in Ireland? Well, now you do! To celebrate the launch of the 10th edition, Saucony went on an expedition to the Emerald Isle for some photographic inspiration for us all to get our run on.

What's new with the Saucony Kinvara 10
The latest edition of the Saucony Kinvara features some new improvements. The FORMFIT performance contoured footbed is built from the foot down for better connection to your run. The top layer is a soft sockliner that conforms to your footshape - popular for a reason. The middle layer of the Kinvara 10 is EVERUN topsole, while the lower layer is the midsole that contours and adapts to a variety of foot shapes and sizes.
The upper is now an engineered mesh upper that is designed to be supportive and breathable, locking in your fast feet. And let's not forget the heel. The achilles of so many runners, the internal heel pods in the Suacony Kinvara improves the lock-down fit ensuring the heel is snuggly in place.
What remains the same?
The Saucony Kinvara 10 still features has EVERUN topsole, Saucony’s legendary material that is lively yet adaptable, giving supremely smooth transition. No reason to change what works.
Also remaining in the tenth edition is the Flexible EVA+ midsole for an energetic ride that propels you forward as you race along
