Saucony Kinvara 2: Minimalist Trainer

The subtleties of a runner’s evolutionary predilection toward minimalist shoes is slowly, and surely, percolating into ever erratic footwear preferences that take shape and fritter away as fast as they summit. So here’s the next big thing RunSociety predicts will take the Singapore running circle by storm: minimalist trainers – where cushioning and the pull of gravity find balance.

In light of this, Saucony has recently released its latest Kinvara 2 performance training shoe. At 218 g (US 9), it is equipped with memory foam heel pods and Heel ProGrid LITE technology (lightest version of ProGrid that absorbs impact, dissipates shock, and sets the foot for a smooth transition); bootie mesh construction allows it to fit like a glove; moves through the gait cycle uninhibited, achieving an incredibly responsive and dynamic ride thanks to its triangular lugs that work as pistons.
