The Kinvara takes hybrid to new levels. With a heel-to-forefoot ratio that resembles a racing flat, the Kinvara promotes midfoot and forefoot striking associated with faster paced running. The low-profile midsole height is comparable to most lightweight trainers, while the cushioning feel is soft in the heel yet responsive in midfoot and toe-off. The result is a neutral shoe, that is great for daily training, tempo runs and long races.
