Awesome Running Shoes for A SUPER AWESOME PRICE!!!

This is my 2nd pair cos i cant get enough of them!! The comfort and support you get from these shoes is really amazing and its incredibly lightweight which makes my running sessions a breeze. And i must say they are pretty fashionable too goes well with most of my outfits.

Dear Dinesh,

Thank you for your purchase of the 8519137 - KIPRUN KS LIGHT MEN'S RUNNING SHOES - BLACK. Indeed the shoe has very good comfort, support and is lightweight. You may like to know that the patented K-Ring located in the heels help to improve cushioning in the rear and spread the shockwave to protect the body. Kalensole improves cushioning and energy return when compared to conventional foam. The exclusive K-Only technology and denser foam located under the first metatarsal means you no longer need to know your stride type: over-pronator, under-pronator or neutral.

Hope to see you real soon.

Thank you.

Great shoe for long and recovery runs

The KS Light is for me the perfect balance of a good support to prevent injuries and fatigue during a long run plus a light and comfortable experience for up to 20km. Sorry, for longer my legs do not carry. I love the comfort and fit of the upper which prevents friction and blisters. The rubber on the back heel wears off after 800km.

Cushioning , Stability and Propulsion

I have Under Pronation. Used in 2 Half Marathon and 10KM run 7 times. Good Cushioning , Stability and Propulsion.

Near Perfect (for me)

I spent many hours researching running shoes. It's so important to get it right. You won't find many 5* rated ones out there because it's so subjective. What's good for me won't necessarily suit you. This was my FIFTH attempt to find the best compromise. They DON'T offer huge support but offer my poor knees great cushioning and are so light I can hardly feel I have got them on. Very happy.

Not very strudy

In have been using Kiprun long. I decided to go ahead with Kiprun light. When I used it for long runs above 21 kms, l found following issues with Kiprun light 1) My right feet was not getting firm support while landing. It appeared shoe is not very sturdy. 2) Inner side is very thin. Therefore not getting firm support while doing long runs. Therefore I have shifted back to Kiprun long which is a great shoe.

Hello Sir,

Thanks for taking the time to write to us,

We are really sorry that Kiprun KS running shoes didn't meet your expectation, as this shoe key focus is on lightweight for the runners looking for lightweight shoes for better performance and its wide sole at the heel ensures better stability, Regarding the mid-foot support, it doesn't have any such features in this shoe but can be done by adjusting the lace.

Thanks for your valuable feedback, we will look into it during our future development of the product.


Top of foot started hurting on my first run

Bought them in July for my upcoming road race in august in leh laddakh region of india. Walked in them couple of times to break them properly. Then came the race day, I started wearing them but after 23-24 kms i started to feel pain on top of my right foot. Now don't know what to do with these. My shoe size is 8 and I bought 8.5.

Super comfortable

Very light weight! Also the cushioning if great compared to the Kiprun Long

Good trainer comfortable and light

very comfortable fit and feel light. I dont think it is suited for more that 1hr run though as front under foot gets a bit sore after longer run.

durabilidad de la suela

Buenas tardes. Soy un cliente asiduo y defensor a ultramza de la marca y de los productos de decathlon. La zaparilla en si me ha resultado muy cómoda. No le veia fallos. Muy contento con ellas. Suelo hacer dos o tres salidas a la semana. Las compré a finales de febrero y con el confinamiento las he usado poquísimo. Mi sorpresa ha estado al mirar la suela que tiene un desgaste bastante grande para el uso que les he dado. Suelo desgastar por el exterior la suela por mi apoyo. Y suelo cambiar de zapatillas cada 10 meses o 1 año. Pero por el camino que voy creo que la suela por esa zona es exagerada. No me habia ocurrido antes ni con zapatillas mas economicas. Estoy intentando que se me pueda dar una solución...pero no encuentro manera de ponerme en contacto con el servicio tecnico....para ver que puede hacerse. Muchas gracias

Buenas tardes Orlando

Primero que nada sentimos las molestias que te haya podido ocasionar el desgaste de nuestra KS. Nos alegra saber que eres un corredor regular con Kiprun, y como habrás visto a lo largo del tiempo, parece extraño el desgaste prematuro de la suela. Ahora cuando podamos abrir nuestra tiendas sin problema puedes acercarte y comentarnos que ha ocurrido y vemos cual es la mejor solución para que continúes corriendo de la manera más satisfactoria posible.

Un saludo y mucho animo en estos días!

Me las recomendaron como una primera opción para empezar, ligeras cómodas y bien amortiguadas en talón, quizás algo menos en zona anterior!

Repito zapatillas

Me han dado muy buen resultado, y tras valorar otras marcas, finalmente opté por mantener el par más usado para entrenamientos, y combinarlo con un par nuevo.

excesivo desgaste zona externa talon

Pues en un principio estaba bastante contento, pero estoy viendo excesivo desgaste en zona externa del talón en comparación ...por ejemplo con las kiprun long(par gastado anteriormente), contando con que las ks light llevan 500km yy a las long les hice 1200 kms. Con 500km se le ve ya ,en zona talón externa de la suela, la goma blanca que hay bajo la goma negra de la suela. No se si es defecto de fabricación o de que se trata. Al leer preguntas sobre el producto dice que se le pueden hacer 1000 km con facilidad(con las long y modelos anteriores sin problemas), . La verdad , no iban mal, pero ese escándaloso desgaste excesivo me parece demasiado, para 500km (2 meses y 10 días de uso).

Excelente zapatilla

Excelente zapatilla,buena amortiguación y adaptacion al pie,de momento supera mis expectativas

icon-circle-checkmark verified purchase

Zapatilla muy cómoda y transpirable para pasar muchas horas con ellas en el pie, muy buena amortiguación, y buena sujección gracia al arco estabilizador.

Why choose a lightweight shoe?

The research and development studies have shown that a lighter shoe improves running performance by reducing the amount of energy consumed. To design the KS LIGHT, there was no compromise in terms of comfort and durability and the decision was taken to use lighter components and an optimized sole design. Result: The KIPRUN KS LIGHT shoe is 12% lighter than the KIPRUN LONG. Its weight: 10 oz in size US 10/EU 43.5.

The importance of the cushioning

In order to run long distances and provide excellent comfort and performance, we have devoted special attention to the sole using 2 technologies: - K-Ring: ring located in the heel to improve the cushioning at the rear and spread the shock wave in order to effectively protect the body (joints, back, knees, etc.). - Kalensole: improves cushioning by 34% and energy return by 25% when compared with conventional foam and lasts up to 600 miles.

Did you say stable?

A stable shoe that facilitates the roll-through of the foot and reduces the effort needed to control the foot and the heel for a more relaxed foot motion. We have increased the surface supporting the foot and added reinforcement at the back of the heel.

The comfort of the ks light

In order to run regularly over long distances, foot comfort is of utmost importance. We have therefore sought to improve the level of comfort with the following: - a new collar at the rear of the sock liner holds the heel securely in place in the shoe so that it feels extremely snug. - a preformed sole made of open-cell PU (polyurethane) foam. - a reworked forefoot area for more comfort. - a seamless, single piece of fabric to reduce friction.

Excellent road-holding ability on wet roads and bends

Our sole was designed like a car tire for effective running without any loss of control when it rains. The new geometry of the sole combined with a new rubber component provides the KIPRUN KS LIGHT with excellent grip on wet terrain, even at top speed.

Adapted to all types of strides

Thanks to the exclusive K-ONLY technology and denser foam located under the first metatarsal, you no longer need to know your stride type (over-pronator, under-pronator, neutral)! A 6-month study conducted with the Luxembourg Institute of Health* showed that the K-Only concept suits all strides. The key figures of the study: - 372 runners - over 12,558 training sessions - 12,094 hours of running - 72,528 miles covered

The Kiprun KS Light is the fruit of the lessons learned over more than 10 years at Decathlon. Caroline and Pierre-Emmanuel (product managers), Stéphane (project engineer) and Nicolas (designer), who are running enthusiasts, develop your Kiprun shoes with the help of a network of ambassadors: the runners at Decathlon, sports coaches and you!
