From the ground up

As part of their line of minimal running sneakers, Saucony has just unveiled their Kinvara 3 running shoes. The lightweight and responsive running shoes feature the brand’s FlexFilm™ technology — a thin, flexible film welded onto the upper that stabilizes the foot while reducing layers. Here is a little more information about the shoe:

Minimal shoes are lightweight and minimally constructed footwear with a lower heel-to-toe offset.  The Kinvara 3 weighs only 7.7 ounces (based on a men’s size 9).  It 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 (which typically have a 12mm heel-to-toe offset) for the Gastrocnemius-Soleus-Achilles tendon system, allowing for a more powerful running stride.

The new Saucony Kinvara 3 will drop at select specialty running shoe retailers on April 26, 2012 and it will retail for $100.
