It has been well-documented on here that I love my Saucony Kinvaras. I just feel like they are the most comfortable shoe I’ve run in. But my first pair started to fall apart after about 150 miles and my latest pair is starting to do the same. The interesting thing is that my mom has had two pairs of Kinvara’s fall apart in the same way as mine.
My mom ended up contacting Running Warehouse and returned her shoes because they started falling apart so quickly. I kind of wonder if there is something slightly wrong with the construction of these shoes. Or maybe it’s something weird in both of our biomechanics that we break the shoes on both the left and the right sides of the shoes, just where the forefoot bends.
And despite this flaw, I still can’t help but want new pairs of Kinvaras. I mean… look at these lovely colors available in the Kinvara 2!
And there is the Kinvara 3, set to be released in May. (Save money on Amazon shoe deals when it releases in May.) Taking a look at the photos, the upper looks like it has been reinforced some, so I am curious if the problem would be alleviated. They’re still pretty attractive!
