Trying to replace a Saucony Kinvara 3 which is no longer available. Since that shoe was a little too narrow, I thought this one with a larger toe box would be perfect. It is a totally different shoe. Way more arch support and much wider. I hate this shoe. The color irl is quite astonishing. I think it may glow. It makes my ankles hurt and the nerve between my middle toes ache.

I love these shoes for running! I had the cohesion 5 before and loved them and was happy to see so many color options in the 7! Got the blue and pink and they are great! I have a very high arch and am a supinator and these shoes are just right! I run an average of 12 miles a week and I don't have any foot pain or knee pain. My running buddies all buy shoes that are much more expensive and I am glad I found these and love the price! Shipping was so fast; ordered 2:00 PM on a Monday and received them at 11:00am the next day! Thank Zappos for another pleasant transaction!
Kinvara 4's are good shoes for a short amount of time. I've owned version 2 and 4. This iteration is extremely light and flexible. It molds to my foot, doesn't slip, or constrict, and they also come in a multitude of styles which look damn sexy. Unfortunately, near the outside toe box, where the mesh material meets the sole began unraveling after only a few months of moderate use, which was the exact same problem with the K2's. I've owned cheaper sneakers which have held up better after rougher use. I run 1-3 times a week, usually 10 miles max over mixed terrain. My pinky toe is almost showing out of the shoe and they certainly are not that worn out! The other thing about these is I feel like the cushioning, after a while, becomes too soft. My running steps seem too squishy, as if the spongelike quality of the rubber does not expand as much as it compresses after every step. All of this indicates the life of theses shoes is far shorter than your typical running sneak, under average usage, which is why I've switched after my 4's.
In 1977, after many long years being kept a close secret, Saucony® men's shoes and women's shoes were recognized by a small group of serious runners and received an award given by a US magazine. Stemming from that day, Saucony® shoes and clothing have built a reputation for high quality and innovative technical performance for which it is known today.
Four years later, the Saucony® Jazz O, the most popular Saucony (now Saucony® Original) shoe to be made, was launched and in 1991, offered a midsole comprising both cushioning and stability-GRID® resulting in men's and women's shoes that delivered a superior ride.
At Saucony®, they exist for runners. Runners inspire them, bringing new ideas and force the Saucony® brand to be better inside and out. They are the inspiration behind the design and engineering of Saucony's best-made products. Runners keep them competitive, hungry and driven but mostly, honest.
Whether in a conference room, or out on a lunchtime run, Saucony® employees are constantly talking about and arguing about their running clothing, shoes and accessories. They are passionate about their products and run in every product they make. This focus and passion fuels them to create the best Saucony® running pieces on the planet. And they keep an eye toward the future when producing Saucony® kid's shoes. Doing so allows them to come to work each day knowing they've done everything to make runner's lives, regardless of age, just a little bit better.
At Saucony®, a good day is when they get to run. A great day is when they inspire someone else to run.
