Saucony Kinvara 5: Forty Mile Update

2014-05-02-12.56.08.jpg

A few weeks ago I published a first impression review of the Saucony Kinvara 5 after taking them out for an initial 11 mile run. I’ve now run a bit over 40 miles total on the shoes, and I just returned from a 14 mile run in them earlier today. I though I’d share a […]

Saucony Kinvara 5 First Impression Review

2014-05-02-13.02.09.jpg

The Saucony Kinvara is one of my favorite running shoe models. It’s basically everything that a shoe should be – pretty simple in construction, lightweight, and relatively inexpensive compared to other shoes on the market. I’d go so far as to rank the original Kinvara up there among my favorite shoes of all time – […]

Saucony Grid Type A6 Sizing Update

Saucony A6 Sizing

Several weeks ago I posted a first impression post on the Saucony Grid Type A6. In that post I mentioned that the shoe seemed to fit longer and narrower than the A5 (I had both in size 10.5), and I indicated I was hoping to get ahold of a pair in size 10 for comparison. […]

Saucony Mirage 4 Running Shoe Review: Good Choice if You Like a Firm Shoe

I’ve been struggling a bit with how to approach this review of the Saucony Mirage 4. On the one hand, there is a lot that I love about this shoe. On the other hand, it’s simply not been a good match for me. As such, this is going to be a review in which I’ll […]

Saucony Peregrine 4 Red

It’s not very often that there is a bright side to getting injured.  While visiting Performance Health Spine and Sport Therapy to have my Ant. Tib. Tendonitis worked on by Brett, I had a chance to visit with Pete and geek out about shoes for a while.  He asked me if I had any interest […]

Saucony Grid Type A6: First Run Review

2014-01-29-12.46.52.jpg

I loved the Saucony Grid Type A5. Loved it. I might go so far as to say it’s the best shoe I’ve ever run in. I’m not exaggerating. As I wrote in my review of the A5, what I loved about the shoe was its simplicity. I like shoes that aren’t stuffed to the gills […]

Update: This shoe is now available and I have posted a Saucony Kinvara 5 review here. Earlier today Saucony posted a preview of the Kinvara 5 on their blog (thanks to Marc S. for the alert!). I was disappointed by the Kinvara 4, with my main issues being the tight forefoot fit and lack of […]

Saucony Kinvara 4 – A Disappointing Update

Saucony Kinvara 4

It pains me to write what I’m about to write, but sometimes you have to be honest and tell a good friend that they are headed in the wrong direction. So, Mr. Kinvara, I apologize for being critical. I know we’ve been through a lot together, but we need some time apart until you get […]
