Comments: Love love love this update. Was not a fan of the 4's at all. These remind me of the 2's and 3's that I wore until they feel apart; the 4's were falling apart before I could even put 50 miles on them. The 5's fit is much better and more secure on the foot. Looks to be more durable, especially in the forefoot which was the area I noticed the most wear on the 4's. I don't know if any cushioning was added or improved but I am recovering from PF and I can run in these pain free. Love the lightweight feel, it's like running on air. Can't recommend them enough. The Green ones are awesome looking and I'd probably try to wear them just for that reason alone. Of course green is my fav color so I am boased. I really think it's a beautiful shoe.

Comments: Not happy with the update. I've had many Kinvaras since its introduction. I've never experience pain before from a new Kinvars. Ran in my Kinvara 4s today. What a difference!! Was really looking forward to the 5. Big disappointment!

Comments: I've been waiting for the Kinvara 5 to come out since the Knivara 3 was discontinued. Let me just say it was worth the wait. Perfect shoe for all distances. It's definitely going to be on my feet on May 19th when I pace the 3:05 group at the Cleveland Marathon. Wide forefoot, soft yet responsive sole.
