For the last couple of years, the trend in running footwear has leaned heavily towards a minimalistic and/or barefoot approach as the “new” thing. Saucony has always been at the forefront of performance running shoes, and for their entrance into the minimalist style, they took their time and used research from some of their top athletes to make sure everything is on point.

The Saucony Progrid Kinvara is their first entrance into this area as noted in the video below. It features additional forefoot and midfoot cushioning, making it a natural in assisting you to make the transition from running in traditional runners to giving natural or barefoot running a try. We all know that it’s easy to take on too much at once, and the Progrid Kinvara aims to be the middle ground between both worlds.
