What a beauty! This fan favorite from Saucony has an updated look and is ready to run. Saucony has made some small changes to the shoe that made it so good it was named Runner’s World Editor’s Choice. Heres’ what we love about it:

The heel counter contains woven support to keep your foot locked down without adding additional bulk. This version of the shoe is 0.4 oz lighter than its predecessor. Now, 0.4 oz doesn’t seem like that much – but in a shoe like this it makes a huge difference in the way the shoe feels!

The mesh upper is lighter than before as well, which helps take out weight and makes the Kinvara feel lighter on the foot.

Version 9 has increased flexibility in the forefoot for a smooth and fast toe off. The shoe contains a full-length EVERUN topsole for a great step-in feel, and this topsole is layered on top of an EVA midsole, giving you a ton of pop and energy in the shoe.

The Saucony Kinvara 9 ($109.99) is available in men’s size 8-13 and women’s size 6-11 in all Marathon Sports locations and at
