Rarely do we review a performance runner simply because we find them less stylish than their lifestyle counterparts. For this shoe though, we are making an exception. Introducing the Saucony Kinvara 8 in black/noir.
Basically a fan favorite neutral with a sleek upgrade from the classic Kinvara runner, it keeps all the great features in, this time with a full-length EVERUN topsole for more energy return. The uppers are stripped down for a more comfortable form fit.
The best thing about this shoe is that aside from the comfort factor, one cannot deny that they look better with the streamlined look.
The side logo panels look really nice. Reminds us of blades or something futuristic. Of course the sleek orientation gives it a real wearable edge that’s not only fit for a marathon, it looks good on a casual get up as well.
As for the colorway, the black/noir really works as it gives the shoe a sophisticated look. Shorts or pants, this shoe will match your next outfit with no fuss. Not much hype yet packing in on features and understated style, we totally recommend this one.
