Summer Shoe Guide 2013
"'Don't mess it up!' That's generally the plea of runners who have fallen in love with a particular shoe. Kinvara faithful, rejoice. The fourth version of this lightweight, cushioned trainer remains mostly unchanged, though subtle tweaks make this already solid shoe even stronger. First, the shoe gets an upgrade in midsole foam; lighter and higher-quality material results in slightly softer cushioning. Wear-testers report that the shoe remains firm enough for faster-paced workouts. The most apparent change is on the upper. The visually prominent overlays that wrapped from side-to-side have been replaced with just a few strips radiating out from the end of the eye row (near the base of your toes), giving the shoe a cleaner look whit still providing enough structure.
