Saucony Kinvara TR, reviewed by Running Product Reviews

Saucony Kinvara TR

Running Product Reviews reviewed the Saucony Kinvara TR, for today's review...The reviews by Running Product Reviews are done by Cregg Weinmann. 

Round 2 of the Kinvara TR continues with a familiar profile and performance, with a few tweaks and some new approaches. The midsole is the same, in profile, but the meat of it is a drop in element under the Strobel board which has been upgraded from ProGrid to PowerGrid, a more resilient foam that offers a livelier feel.

The outersole continues as before, a toothy profile of rubber with crescent shaped perforations through the sole revealing a rock plate to shield the foot, but the toe is now protected by a new up-swept bumper. The upper is a minimesh with an interior that is smooth, the tongue thinned of unnecessary material - gusseted for fit and keeping debris out, and a full-length web of Flexfilm overlays to support the foot. The Kinvara TR 2 delivers the original promise of its predecessor, and pushes performance to the next level.

"Nice snug fit. Good contact with the ground, responsive feel, and has great grip. Totally at home on the trail."
