Saucony Triumph ISO Review
There were minimalist shoes and then there were maximalist shoes. Maximalist shoes are the epitome of super plush, cushioned running shoes. The Triumph ISO might be Saucony first attempt to break into the maximalist market. That being said let us discuss the pair in detail with our Saucony Triumph ISO Review.
If you are a neutral runner and is fond of cushion, then Saucony Triumph ISO might be your ideal next pair of running shoes. Like what other Saucony Triumph ISO review will tell you, the pair is great for high mileage runners. You could get away to ride sockless because the upper of the Triumph ISO is nearly seamless. It has a great fit, a bit narrower than other Saucony pair, which is good because Saucony shoes tend to run a bit wide. The PWRGRID+ sole technology that comes with the Triumph ISO is designed to provide 20% more cushioning than previous Triumph models. It feature an 8mm heel drop so those inkling for low to zero drop should take note. Traction is great on pavement and gravel road. It is worth to note that compared to other running shoes, it has really great grip especially on wet pavement.
This Saucony Triumph ISO review applauds how comfortable this shoe is. It gives your feet ample support without being constrictive. It is also true to size, so no worries about that. The seamless built on the upper provides less friction and blisters. For a well cushioned shoe, it is lightweight at 10.3 oz. Out of the box it seems to be a big shoe, but does not really feel like it when worn. It is actually more lightweight than one would image. It is designed for long runs and works well with it. The additional cushion around the mid-foot and heel area still allows excellent, natural movement. However, because of the level of cushion, those who do fast running and speed workout may not find this pair desirable.
Another con our Saucony Triumph ISO review will point out is the price which is a bit steep depending on how you utilize it. It may be a deal breaker for some, but for long runs like marathons, it might be worth the price.
