Saucony’s Progrid Kinvara is now available in a handful of colorways. With barefoot running becoming popular, and designs that emulate barefoot running also increasing in popularity, the Prodgrid Kinvara is a minimalistic and lightweight running shoe that lands in the middle ground. Quite literally.
Although natural running may be on your list of to-dos, going from a traditional running shoe to running barefoot is not exactly the best idea. The potential for injury is greater due to your body being accustomed to landing on your heel with traditional running shoes, whereas running barefoot or in a natural-type running shoe causes impact to be shifted more towards the forefoot.
This is where the Saucony Progrid Kinvara comes in, the Kinvara features additional forefoot and midfoot cushioning making it a natural in helping you make the transition from running in traditional runners, to giving natural or barefoot running a try. Unlike a traditional running shoe there is less variation in height from the heel to the midfoot. The Kinvara also features a breathable upper to keep your feet nice and cool.
