Saucony Kinvara 2
WHAT'S NEW? Memory foam in the heel for a softer landing; a more durable mesh and a skeletal layer to beef up the structure around the foot.
WE SAY It was a dead heat between this and the Asics Gel Landreth 7 (top left) for the Best Update award. The key to successfully updating a shoe is to know which bits to leave be and which to tinker with, and Saucony has done that superbly here. The weight is the same, as is the midsole construction. Our testers noticed the added internal structure, which locked the shoe over the foot, while the cushioned landing from the memory foam was much appreciated by those who were trying out a lighter weight, lower profile shoe for the first time. A job well done.
