Distance: 3.6 miles (concrete/asphalt) in PM; 4 miles treadmill (AM)
Arch type: Average/Normal
Foot type: Neutral
Height/Weight: 5'6", 140 lbs
Saucony size: 7.5 (Dress shoe size 6.5, boot size to accommodate thick sock 7)
Offset preference: 12mm
My favorite Saucony shoe has always been the Cohesion, specifically the model #7. I don't like the changes made with the 8, 9, and 10 (the shoe seems snugger, a bit stiffer, and lost the responsiveness of the #7, which was perfect) and wanted some more cushioning as I get older so I decided to check out some more options. Unfortunately, the only Saucony shoe with a 12mm offset is the Cohesion. I tried a Mizuno "cushioned" shoe with a 12mm offset and had to return it (see review). So I decided to try the Triumph. This is one seriously cushioned shoe with a nice flexible midsole/platform. It's not as responsive as the lighter weight Cohesion but it has a nice feel to it. If you ever doubt the cushioning and flexible midsole, just try this on with a pair of Mizuno Enigmas or other shoe. The difference, at least to me, was amazing.
I love the design--the tongue is "attached" to the upper so it's not free floating and thus the shoe fits like a glove. It feels nice right out of the box, nice as in there's no breaking in period. I did have to forgo my cushioned sock due to the snugger fit but this shoe has so much cushioning with the Everun technology you don't need a cushioned sock. I docked it a star for not being a 12mm offset (the Triumph has a 8mm offset) and because my legs felt a bit "heavy" after a week of running in it. I've since started rotating it with the Cohesion and find this combination works for me.
(Side note: I was reluctant to try the 8mm offset after a negative experience with the Saucony Ride, which is nowhere near as cushioned or flexible. I experienced a hip/ankle injury after two runs in the Ride and thus went back to the Cohesion. I've been injury free in the many years I've run in the Cohesion and hope to stay that way with the Triumph in rotation. Time will tell. I'm not sure if the different offset is to blame but just pointing it out for other runners who have run in a particular offset for years and experience issues when switching between them.)
The offset is 8mm so I have to work my way into these shoes from some of the others. If you don't know what offset means, don't worry an 8 mm drop is a nice in-between that you really wont notice unless you're running more than 25 miles a week.
The original price is a good indication of the quality of running shoe so it is clear that you're getting a good buy with this shoe regularly priced in stores at $160. It is simply an older version, but that is fine.
Not a lot changed in this version of the triumph. I love the soft design of the shoe tongue and area around the ankle. The upper is a nice stretch material.
As a college coach, I go through shoes quickly because I wear them for practice and for running, so the price and high cushioning makes these great!
