They are Kinvara 2's by the way. Two training partners of mine wear 3's and really like them!

They're very good for neutral, forefoot strikers. They also don't have a lot of heel drop, so if you're prone to calf and achilles injuries, it's probably best to switch it up a bit with a different shoe.
I'm also agree that they are not for those who may be less than biomechanically sound. Much as I have loved running in kinvara's, I feel they may have contributed to my battle with the dreaded runners knee.
I feel the same way... 3 pair of Kinvara 3's and I just can't bring myself to throw away my highest mileage ones even though they stink and have worn down the tread. They just get better with age.

its so interesting because had the opposite reaction to the virratas...I thought they felt TOO high compared to the Kinvaras. I've had 4 pairs of K2s and 3s and they were/ are my recovery run/ mid distance shoes and thought the Virratas would fit in nicely as a compliment but they just seemed overly plush and I personally felt a disconnect to the road.
