Runblogger.com reviewed the Kinvara 5, and said: "I’m pretty confident that they will wind up on my list of top shoes of 2014. I might go so far as to say that this is my favorite Kinvara so far".

Renata says: These shoes are so super light, it's amazing! I feel so much lighter and faster running in these shoes! I found the small heel to toe drop to be really noticeable. I am flexible, and I stretch my calves and hamstrings a lot, so I found myself transitioning with ease and speed, whereas the heels in other shoes always felt so big and bulky. I'm a neutral runner, so I don't need a support shoe, but I was careful, and I did take my time transitioning over to these shoes because they really have minimal support.

In the past, I had trouble with plantar fasciitis. To compensate, I tried running in more supportive shoes and I even used an orthotic insert. However , I found that the less structured the shoe was, the less my feet hurt! I admit, I don't put in a ton of miles, but I have not had any pain at all after switching to these shoes. This may not work for everyone, but it sure worked for me.

SUPPORT:

  • The Kinvara is a neutral shoe that allows your foot to run uninhibited.
  • The semi-curved last (the shape of the sole) is best for medium to high arches.
  • Updated in the Kinvara 5:
  • redesigned upper features a Pro-Lock lacing system for an improved fit around the midfoot and arch
  • redesigned plush collar provides a snugger fit around the ankle and heel for comfort and improved fit

COMFORT:

  • A lightweight and flexible triangular lug design allows your feet to "feel" the road as you run.
  • The PowerGrid™ heel insert absorbs impact and reduces shock for a smooth and resposive ride.
  • An advanced EVA+ midsole maximizes rebound while it minimizes weight; keeping you light on your toes.
  • The upper is made out of air mesh for breathability, with an endoskeleton to hold the foot more securely, and an EVA sockliner for cushioned comfort.

DURABILITY:

  • Strategically added XT900 carbon outsole offers traction and enhanced durability.
  • The outsole is beveled to achieve an even smoother transition.

SPECIFICATIONS:

  • 22mm heel, 18mm forefoot = 4mm drop
