Solid 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.
Feels true to size
Feels true to width

Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
