Even though I’m pretty much a Saucony guy all the way, I’ll have to admit the upcoming Nike Flyknit line looks extremely intriguing. Having a material that will provide a “sock-like” fit without the need for overlays sounds pretty cool. Remains to be seen how this will effect things like durability, breathability, etc. The weight of the trainer version is going to be extremely close to the Saucony Kinvara at 7.7 oz for a men’s size 9. The racer version will be over 2 oz less at 5.6 oz. This shoe was worn by several individuals competing in the US Olympic Marathon trials in January. Might be a possible alternative to the Kinvara for me if Saucony ever ruins the design.
What do you think?
