Saucony Kinvara 13
The Saucony Kinvara 13 continues the line’s legacy as a favorite in the lightweight daily trainer category. As the lightest version to date, the Kinvara 13 delivers a familiar underfoot feel and overall simple construction that is perfect for any kind of run on the road. With only minor tweaks to its legendary design, the Saucony Kinvara 13 has everything that runners are looking for in a lightweight daily trainer. The midsole of the Kinvara 13 utilizes the same responsive PWRRUN compound found in the previous version giving runners a nimble and peppy underfoot feel. The single-layer mesh upper is sleek and stripped down with some updated overlays for a better lockdown. Finished off with an exposed outsole with a few strategically placed rubber patches, the Saucony Kinvara 13 clearly continues its lightweight daily trainer legacy.
