The fit and comfort is consistent with what I had come to expect from the Kinvara 4's, and I am very happy with these shoes. The only change I've made from my 4's is that I also bought a set of Xtenex elastic laces to go with them because I have a tendency to over tighten my laces which causes me discomfort when my feet swell from running.
I can't think of anything that I would consider a negative with the switch to the Kinvara 5 if one likes the 4's.
8 MONTH UPDATE- I've worn these shoes about as long as they're going to last and have decided to deduct one star from my former review. As you can see from the pictures, the heels are worn pretty severely after approximately 250 miles. Granted, my form could have something to do with this wear, and I do run primarily on asphalt, but 250 miles seems pretty low for a running shoe.
I also found that I do not like the tongue and Pro Lock changes as much when compared to the Kinvara 4, but it isn't a deal breaker, but I think for the money, I'd would have been just as happy buying two pairs of the 4's for the price I paid for these.
I'm going to try some Hoka's as my next set of shoes, as I plan to increase my mileage and would like to get more use out of a pair of shoes that are billed as road shoes.
Just to add to my review after using these shoes for last four months - they have started to tear up a bit, especially on the inner side of the toe box on both the left and the right shoe. I can still run well in them but I am not sure these Kinvaras will be a long lasting one.
Just to add to my review -
I have been using these shoes for >9 months and they have reached that stage where I have to replace them. They have worn out and showing really bad tears in the upper .
