I think I’ve made it pretty clear on here that I really like my Saucony Kinvara. Well, they have about reached the end of their lifecycle.
I replaced them with a pair of Saucony Mirage, which are another pair in Saucony’s minimal line-up but with a little more stability. However, after running a 7-miler in them I came to the conclusion that I didn’t like running in them. The tongue keeps sliding to the outsides and that’s annoying. It’s too bad, because I REALLY REALLY like the appearance of these shoes!
So I went back to the Kinvara… upgrading to the latest model, the Saucony Kinvara 2 this time.
And I love them!
Recently a gal said to me, “You’re wearing Saucony shoes? I thought only guys wore those!”
Nope. At least not this
guy gal! I’m becoming a Saucony gal, at least in terms of shoes.
I loved my Kinvaras enough to continue into the next model release.
My trail shoes are the Saucony Peregrine, the trail version of the Kinvara.
I have the minimal Hattori that I really like, they’re pretty fun on a track too!
I only wish Saucony had size 8 in their last chance sale, they have orange and pink Kinvara 1 on super sale, just $55! And while they don’t have the orange in the Kinvara 2, they do have pink as well as groovy purple and lime green versions!
Legalese: The Saucony 1 were provided to me for review a long time ago, as were the Peregrine and Hattori. I bought the Mirage and the Kinvara 2 with my own monies.
