This is one of the first reviews of the new Saucony Kinvara 3 I’ve seen from someone who has actually spent some time running in the new shoe. What strikes me so much about this review is not just the glowing thoughts on Kinvara 3 (which sounds awesome), but how the author says that he had been unable to get more than 200-miles out of a pair of Kinvara 1s or 2s.
My first pair of Kinvara 1s lasted over 350 miles before they started showing significant signs of wear or breakdown. One of my current pair of Kinvara 2s has been through 2 marathons and 2 half marathons, and are well past 350 miles. Based on how well they are holding up, I’m thinking they will last at least until 400 miles.
In addition to this article, I’ve had some other local runners mention durability concerns to me, and I’m very curious as to why I’m not experiencing this problem.
Anyone else out there having durability problems with their Kinvara 1s or 2s?
