Every gentleman needs an athletic outlet to combat the pressure of looming work deadlines, romantic relationships and visits from out-of-town family.  (Understandably, your parents want to crash at your place: it is the epicenter of style and sophistication in your city.)  Are you tense? Go to the gym. Or, hit the pavement. Whatever you do, find a release for your pent up aggression.

We at G@H care. We want your workouts to be satisfying. Some people contend that queuing up the proper playlist is essential. Others swear by precise diets or exotic supplements. We believe in finding the right shoe.  And, we wholeheartedly recommend the Saucony Kinvara 3 for all of your running needs.

The Kinvara is a lightweight, comfortable, durable shoe. It weighs only 7.7 ounces.  The shoe’s upper is constructed of seamless mesh and Saucony’s proprietary FlexFilm, which replaces traditional stitching and conforms to the contours of your foot. This, the third generation Kinvara, has an upgraded outsole.  Saucony enhanced the carbon rubber on the outsole’s toe and instep and added a decoupled and beveled heel. And, the shoe’s internal heel contains memory foam pods. While the rest of your body gets its burn, your heel enjoys cushion first developed by NASA.

Notwithstanding these features, the Kinvara’s best attribute may be its price. You can snag a pair for about $75. At that price, you can buy several and alternate based on your mood. Orange for happy.  Silver for mellow. Citron for your brother paid you a surprise visit and his dog just ruined your zigzag wool rug.

Don’t fret. Slip on your Kinvaras, turn up that Carly Rae Jepsen playlist and slip out for an anxiety-reducing run.
