First off, here is what the Saucony website has to say about the shoe:
RUN - Natural
Building on its award winning pedigree, the Kinvara 4 is a perfect synthesis of celebrated design elements from previous versions. Kinvara loyalists will love the upgrade from ProGrid to PowerGrid in the heel landing zone for even smoother transitions and an improved overall ride (PowerGrid is a lighter yet more durable compound than ProGrid), in addition to the redesigned upper continuing to utilize FlexFilm for a lightweight, natural feel in the forefoot and toebox areas Weight: 6.7 oz. / 190 gm (size 8)
|If you wear bright shoes, you gotta|
wear bright running clothes!
- Weight - I was a bit worried that the 4 would not be as light as the 3...no worries there. This shoe feels like I'm wearing nothing.
- Heel to Toe - The heel to toe drop is a small 4mm which greatly helps me maintain my forefront running form. The greater the drop, the more I tend to start heel striking again...and this is not a good thing.
- Color? - AMAZING!!! I feel that the bright colors just suit my personality and am so glad that Saucony put out some great colors.
- Mesh Toe - so glad they kept the mesh toe box...it lets in air and makes me feel like I'm wearing a see-through shoe.
On a different note, as I was running past the school playground, I couldn't help to notice the new playground equipment. The first thought that jumped into my head was cross-fit exercises. Heather and I were talking about chin-ups and leg lifts (the key to tightening the lower abs) and I couldn't help thinking that this equipment would be perfect!
And finally....these little bites are going to be the death of me!!!! I can't eat just one...or two...for that matter!
What shoe are you in love with and why???
Do you have a secret snack that you can't live without??
