Saucony Kinvara 6 – RM399.00

The lightweight performance trainer, at a 4mm offset, is the continuation of previous models that has been the cornerstone of the lightweight performance trainer category. The upper of the Kinvara 6 is keeping the comfort and performance feel that is expected of the Kinvara. The lightweight AirMesh is framed with FlexFilm which makes it light, comfortable, and fast feeling around the foot. Maintaining the Pro-Lock , a midfoot support piece that is on both medial and lateral sides of the shoe, it ensures an improved fit. On the outsole, there is PowerGrid in the heel just for initial point of contact for cushioning and smooth transition to the forefoot at toe-off.

The outsole strategically employs X10 at high wear areas and lighter material at the forefoot for an ideal toe-off. The Barely-There upper pattern frames the foot perfectly with minimal use of overlays to deliver a smooth ride and an ideal support for a longer and farther run.
