Saucony Kinvara 3

By Barefootdaves
Saucony Kinvara 3 Saucony (Sock A Knee) unveils the all-new Kinvara 3, the industry’s most highly anticipated shoe of the season and the third update to the brand’s award-winning natural motion running shoe. Saucony continues to inspire runners to find their personal “strong” through running with the much-anticipated arrival of Kinvara 3. The all-new Kinvara 3 is the third edition of the iconic Kinvara, a minimalist shoe that is renowned for being lightweight and highly responsive

“Of all the shoes released by Saucony, runners and retailers are especially excited by the new Kinvara 3,” said Chris Lindner, chief marketing officer for Saucony. “The Kinvara was among the first natural motion running shoes available in the marketplace and positioned Saucony as an industry leader in the category. The Kinvara 3, an even better technical running shoe than its predecessors, delivers more than a great shoe: It inspires an incredible running experience. People just can’t wait to get it on and go”

The next-generation Kinvara, weighing only 7.7 ounces (based on a men’s size 9), is a performance training shoe with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset that positions the runner’s foot during impact in a way that creates a greater range of motion than traditional running shoes (with a 12mm heel-to-toe offset) for the Gastrocnemius-Soleus-Achilles tendon system, allowing for a more powerful running stride

My Thoughts
Will I recommend it to a non-minimalist runner? Yup! The design philosophy makes sense. I believe it is a very good shoe. I'd even pick this over Skora and EVO II. This offering is for those who seeks some level of cushion. If you seek a lighter shoe there's Type A5 and Hattori
Will there be a shoe review? Yes! I will ask Meowth to help me on this one
