Saucony Unveils the New Kinvara 3

The most popular, natural-motion, minimalist running shoe of Saucony has just been unveiled in the Philippines last October 12, 2012. Renowned for being lightweight and highly responsive, Kinvara 3 - a performance training shoe, is an update that has been taken to a whole new level and better technical running shoe than its predecessors (Kinvara 1 and 2).

Weighing only 7.7 ounces based on Men's US 9 size, it delivers more than just a great shoe as it inspires to an incredible running experience in the minimalist shoe category. Check out the full technical details below:

So Much Technology, So Little Shoe

  • Weight: 7.7 ounces based on Men's US 9 size.
  • Offset: 4-mm Heel-to-Toe offset - positions the runner's foot during impact in a way that creates a greater range of motion allowing for a more powerful running stride.
  • Heel Pods - anatomically countoured memory foam heel pods in the collar to ensure an ultra-secure ride.
  • EVA+ (Ethylene Vinyl Acetate) - high-abrasion exposed foam midsole allows for lightweight protection underfoot while maximizing rebound and flexibility.
The Update

  • FlexiFilm(TM) - a lightweight, highly dynamic flexible film seamlessly affixed into the breathable mesh upper that adapts to your foot.
  • XT-900 - carbon rubber pods strategically placed on parts of the outsole for enhanced durability without adding weight.
  • ProGrid Heel - More responsive than EVA that provides incredible cushioning on a lightweight package. The re-engineered outsole also includes a beveled heel to better facilitate a secure, stabilize, natural rolling movement from heel-to-toe.
