Rated5out of5byfromBest shoesThese are minimal lightweight shoes. I land mid foot and tend to supinate, so they work great. They are not for someone who pronates and requires more support.

Rated1out of5byfromNot what I neededShoe did not provide the support I wanted. Not much cushioning. I returned them.

Rated4out of5byfromSolid shoeSolid shoe. Lightweight and comfortable. Not very supportive, as it is a minimalist shoe. I had lots of problems (calf cramps, mostly) when I first started using the earlier Kinvara 2, but haven't had any problems since switching so I think I either got used to minimalist running or I was using the previous edition past their expiration date. I love how lightweight the Kinvaras are. Although my foot type needs more support I can't find it in me to switch over to bulky running shoes, especially when the Kinvaras are at a great price. And so breathable! My biggest complaing is that the heel tab does go up further than the Kinvara 2 (which I knew about before purchasing). As I wear socks that I pull up higher than the heel tab this has not been an issue for me. Barefoot users--beware.

Rated3out of5byfromDecent light runner.Nice lightweight running shoe, but has a higher back than I am used to. Took some breaking in and on initial longer runs (8+ miles) some blisters, but once broken in they are comfortable.
