Review of Saucony Triumph ISO Running Shoe

Triumph ISO Saucony
Running is a good physical activity that improves cardiovascular fitness, strengthens your bones and helps you maintain a healthy weight. It is important to have best-fitting running shoes to lessen the chances of injury (i.e shinsplints, plantar fasciitis, tendonitis, etc) . For me, the best pair of running shoes are those that just “disappear” from my feet when I run.

The Saucony Triumph ISO is the latest version of the Triumph line. These shoes are the Editor’s Choice for Runner’s World in March 2015. The Saucony Triumph ISO is the eleventh iteration of Saucony’s Triumph line. Saucony has not used a number for its new line but instead replaced it with ISO which stands for ISOFit. The ISOFit has taken a few grams of weight off the upper of the shoe. The next improvement is the PowerGrid for which Saucony’s shoe-lab has added more cushioning than Triumph 17. This allows more free movement for the foot.

I have bein using the Saucony Triumph ISO for long runs. I find them comfortable for my daily runs.

The following pros and cons can be noted about Saucony Triumph ISO

Pros

  • Delivers a richly cushioned running experience, and therefore it’s especially suitable for long runs
  • Provides a soothing feeling through the entire gait cycle
  • The inner sleeve is very soft, made from air mesh that is stretchable
  • ISOFIT fits closely to the feet giving a sock-like feeling
  • Available in various colors
  • Suitable for neutral foot motion– The PowerGrid plus sole is extremely light. The shoe weighs 255g only!

Cons

  • Price tag is on the higher side ($150) but is worth buying for high mileage runners
  • For speed work the cushioning is excessive

What others are saying about Saucony Triumph ISO

Review by Dave
I run around 20-30 miles/week and have used most of the top brands. I love the Saucony Triumph ISO shoe as it cushions like socks and the stack height is perfect for my long mile running.

Review by Kim
Saucony suggest to buy one size up as the shoes run smaller, but for me it was opposite. The shoes are the shoes are wider and larger as the ISO fit is very flexible and I have to tight up the laces firmly to get a good fit. The shoes are very lightweight and comfortable. I found them suitable for running, but for walking I felt something is wrong but my guess I need a lower size maybe will correct my walking experience with them.

Saucony Triumph ISO shoes are perfect for runners seeking a neutral shoe with an incredibly plush ride. The Triumph ISO provides the right cushioning and gives a good springing off the ground feel.
