At the same time, it also launched the release of the much-awaited neutral running shoe, Ride 7 (another article about this shoe is coming out soon!)  The shoe was selected as “Editor’s Choice” by Runner’s World 2014 Summer Shoe Guide.

Another Saucony model that created a buzz at the launch, and considered as one of the anticipated running shoes of the quarter is Kinvara 5.  It’s a natural runner’s best friend for a high-mileage performance.  Kinvara 5 was also hailed as the “Editor’s Choice” of the Runner’s World 2014 Fall Shoe Guide.

Completing Saucony essentials is its Total Run System apparel line, engineered to help runners move with ease in any type of weather.   It uses breathable materials and advanced functional textiles that can be layered depending on the environment.  RunDry for sweat management, RunWarm for insulation, and RunShield for protection from the wind and water are the three components of the System.

Press Release: Saucony Launches Kinvara 3rd ed.

Industry’s Most Highly Anticipated Shoe 
of the Season is Now in the Philippines

Saucony unveils the all-new Kinvara 3, the industry’s most highly anticipated shoe of the season and the third update to the brand’s award-winning natural motion running shoe.  Saucony continues to inspire runners to find their personal “strong” through running with the much-anticipated arrival of Kinvara 3.  The all-new Kinvara 3 is the third edition of the iconic Kinvara, a minimalist shoe that is renowned for being lightweight and highly responsive.
“Of all the shoes released by Saucony, runners and retailers are especially excited by the new Kinvara 3,” said Chris Lindner, chief marketing officer for Saucony. “The Kinvara was among the first natural motion running shoes available in the marketplace and positioned Saucony as an industry leader in the category. The Kinvara 3, an even better technical running shoe than its predecessors, delivers more than a great shoe: It inspires an incredible running experience. People just can’t wait to get it on and go.”
Saucony is a top name in running, an authentic performance footwear brand.  Throughout the years, Saucony has become legendary with its trailblazing innovations and cutting-edge technological expertise, including pioneering the minimalist shoe category – the buzz in the running community today.
Kinvara 3: So Much Technology, So Little Shoe
The next-generation Kinvara, weighing only 7.7 ounces (based on a men’s size 9), is a performance training shoe with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset that positions the runner’s foot during impact in a way that creates a greater range of motion than traditional running shoes (with a 12mm heel-to-toe offset) for the Gastrocnemius-Soleus-Achilles tendon system, allowing for a more powerful running stride.
Saucony has taken the Kinvara 3 to a whole new level with a precision engineered upper that is lighter and more flexible thanks to FlexFilm™ technology, a lightweight, highly dynamic flexible film affixed onto the breathable mesh upper that secures and stabilizes the foot throughout the gait cycle. Memory Foam heel pods in the collar ensure an ultra-secure ride.
Saucony’s high abrasion EVA exposed foam midsole allows for lightweight protection underfoot, while maximizing rebound and flexibility. After studying wear patterns on thousands of test shoes, Saucony adjusted the outsole design on the new Kinvara 3 to increase durability and promote an even smoother transition. XT-900 carbon rubber pods were strategically placed on parts of the Kinvara 3’s outsole for enhanced durability without adding weight. The reengineered outsole includes a beveled heel to better facilitate a natural rolling movement from heel to toe.
