Saucony® Unveils the Kinvara 12

Featherlight and fast, the Kinvara 12 is further refined to make the most of less


WALTHAM, MA (Feb. 4, 2021) – Global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony announces the launch of the Kinvara 12, the latest iteration of its award-winning, athlete-loved running shoe franchise. Featuring the brand’s exclusive PWRRUN™ cushioning technology, updated geometry, and a simplified upper, the Kinvara 12 is featherlight and fast. The Kinvara 12 is now available at select specialty running retailers globally and at saucony.com.

“With an almost cult-like following, the Kinvara remains our trusted go-fast running shoe,” said Shawn Hoy, Saucony’s senior vice president of global product and innovation. “PWRRUN cushioning keeps it light and fast to be a racing flat but it’s supportive enough to be an everyday trainer. We also simplified the upper design and improved the durability. We know the Kinvara 12 will be a trusted companion for runners who want a sleek, fast-looking and fast-feeling running experience.”
