I appreciate all of the response to my question a couple of days ago regarding incorporating barefoot type running into my training. As a follow-up. I have been using the @Saucony Kinvara since last fall and am slowly transitioning to it as my full-time trainer. For those of you who run in Kinvaras….
- Am I negating the benefit of the Kinvara if I replace the insole? I typically use the Lynco 405, and have been using this with the Kinvara.
- How many miles should I expect out of the Kinvara? I have only been using them once or twice per week so far, and my first pair has around 200 miles on them. They appear to still be in good shape, but I’ve read a lot about durability issues.
- I have completed a 1/2 marathon in the Kinvaras, and they were great (Though my feet were sore the next day). Has anyone tried using them in a full marathon? If so, what are your thoughts (trying to decide about using them at Chicago in Oct)?
