Saucony Kinvara 8


$110, Roadrunnersports.com

The draw: Dries in a flash

The popular Kinvara continues to evolve for the better with a few more tweaks that have given it more versatility and energy return. The newest version serves up an even more responsive ride, thanks to a new full-length layer of resilient foam. It also has a re-engineered mesh upper with laser-cut perforations that offer a very breathable—and quick-drying—featherweight sensation, and thin film overlays for support and a snug fit. Light, fast and cushioned, the Kinvara can do everything.
