These are my second pair of this model (third overall, I had a pair of 3's prior). I ran 370 miles on my first pair of 4's and liked them so much I decided to get a second pair! If you already have a pair of 4's and are looking to replace them, these are the exact same as the regular model, but with more reflective material.

I just got done with my first run on these and they feel and fit the exact same! As with my last two pair of Kinvara's I assume the slight tearing in the top will occur again, but I haven't found that to effect the fit wear of the shoe at all. I also expect the rubber on the bottom to wear the same. If I were to judge how much further I could run on my last pair of 4's on the wear of rubber/EVA, I would say they could make it well into the 500 mile range (see my pictures with old and new side by side).

If you are simply looking to replace your last pair of Kinvara's, you should be happy with this brighter option. If you have never owned a pair or Kinvara's or are new to running, you should visit a running store to get professionally fitted.

Not as good as the Kinvara 3. This shoe is really still and I get hotspots and achy feet after only 3 miles. I used to love the Kinvara line. This might be my last pair of Saucony shoes for a while. Only plus I can say is that these are really reflective.

I am currently training for my second marathon. The first race I trained primarily in the Kinvara 3 and the Mirage 3, both were great but the Mirage was a little too much shoe for my taste. I loved my Kinvara 3's and ran in them for almost a solid year on both road and trail but was sad to have to retire them. When I started training for this race I cheaped out and bought a pair of Asics Gel Lyte33's that are comfortable and all but after about 5-6 miles my feat would start to shift around and inevitably a couple blisters would show up. After a few weeks of this I gave up and grabbed a pair of these Kinvara 4s. They fit and feel just like my 3's, the color combo is just the right amount of flashy and the extra visibility is great for my weekday runs after the kids go to bed. I was so excited when I got them I made the bold move of breaking them in on a 12-mile long run. No blisters, no hot spots, no sore feet. I've run in most of the major brands/models but the Kinvara is by far my favorite shoe.

If you're on the fence, just get a pair. You won't regret it. Thanks Saucony for keeping me stoked for my long runs!

Great shoe - just bought my second pair. Have been very durable and I am hard on shoes. I have a wider foot size 13 and they fit good, are comfortable, and are great to run in - had a very short break in period. Would highly recommend them.

I will start with commenting on the viziglo as that is what sets this shoe apart from the other Kinvaras. Most shoes have some reflective elements in the heel area and maybe a sliver along the side or top. The viziglo models from Saucony are covered with the stuff. In the dark, when hit by light, the viziglo kinvara absolutely lights up. I have dozens of running shoes and nothing come close other than the viziglo ride 6's. The kinvara I would say outshines the ride 6 with a bit more reflectivity.

The orange and silver is decent looking in the daylight. Not counting the silver the ride 6 looks better with its more 50/50 balance of glo orange and yellow, where as the kinvara is about 95% orange with just a hint of glo yellow.

I have several kinvara 2's and skipped the 3's. The 4's feel like the 2's do to me at least and look similar. I have normal to narrow feet though and couldnt feel it but and side by side I could see the Kinvara 4 had been narrowed in the forefoot.Size 12 in the 2's for me and still a size 12 in the 4's which I think run true to size. That is a good thing they look and fell like the 2's as the 2's are one of my all-time favorites. I am 6'3" 210lbs and these things are wonderful on pavement. Cushioned, yet flexible. I only run 3-4 miles at a time but these work great and are the perfect balance between lightweight and cushion.

I have used the Kinvara 4 for about a year now, four pairs, about 700-900 km each. I used these for a 50 miler last fall with no unexpected issues (only one black toe nail on each foot is better than my previous shoe)

Great shoe for the value. Not as good a running shoe as my Asics (Cumulus). It doesn't seem to have as much support as the Asics. Overall a great shoe to wear every day, even great workout shoes, but not for running.

My husband loves these shoes. He love to run in them or just wear them casually around. These are go-to shoes!
