I say this because I did not entirely warm to the lovely neon Kinvara 3s and today returned them to their home at Run4It. It wasn't really their fault. I did like their flashiness and they were very comfortable for walking but I came to the conclusion after several sessions on the cross-trainer and a very brief jog on the treadmill that it will take years before my achilles tendons and calves relax enough and are strong enough to tolerate running in 4mm drop shoes. And, given how impatient I can be, I didn't trust myself to resist the Kinvara temptation and to not push things faster than was good for me. Plus, the toe box was a bit big and I needed to tighten the laces so much that I created a big puckered crease of shoe. Very unsightly.
