Customer Reviews

Comments: this is a Kinvara and feels like a Kinvara. Lightweight, small drop and a lot of feel. However, contrary to what the shoe fitter says, it does NOT fit like the regular Kinvara. The gore tex layer is inside the shoe and takes room. I would recommend at least half size more (would be great to update the shoe fitter as well to avoid bad experience like mine and ordering the wrong size)
