    • Good shoe , a little long in the toe
      Reviewer: Tony

      7/4/2013

      Excellent cushioning and comfortable spacious fit. The toe is long . I actually use these shoes for work. They are too roomy to run in since I like my running shoes a little tight . A lot of room in the toe for all day wear. If you are looking for a highly cushioned shoe with a more snug fit look at the Brooks Ravenna 4 or the Nike Pegasus 29. I run with both of these.

      This is my second pair of Triumph 9 shoes. I wanted to get another color before they were gone. These are very comfortable running shoes.The provide the support and cushion that I need.

      I have run in Saucony shoes for years, starting with the triumph 3 shoes all the way up to the triumph 7. Unfortunately the triumph 7 introduced a new, slightly porky mid sole connecting the forefoot and heel with a relatively stiff chunk of rubber. I tried a pair, but returned them after a few short, but painful heel-striking runs. I stocked up on Triumph 6's, ordering as many as I could, hoping to weather the storm until the next shoe. Unfortunately I run a fair bit so shoes only last a few months before they reach the 400 mile retirement point. With the triumph 8, things were improved, but not perfect, the shoe still felt like it had a slightly heavy awkward heel. Nearly out of triumph 6 shoes, I found myself shopping for other neutral + shoes. After trying nearly every brand, I found some good, workable shoes but nothing that rode or fit as well as the triumph 6 shoes. As soon as I saw the triumph 9 show up as available online I eagerly purchased a pair; the specs are impressive, nearly an ounce lighter than the triumph 8's, with new features such as 8mm offsets and an ibr+ rubber compounds. The smell of new shoes wafting out of the familiar red and brown box I pulled the new triumph 9's out. They look like an entirely new shoe. Gone is the characteristic Progrid "window" on the bottom; instead in its place is a simplistic Powergrid logo. Most importantly the awkward mid sole material that was added in the triumph 7 and 8 has been dramatically changed. First impression on fit is that the toe box is pretty big (actually just average compared to other brands). Gone are the round laces, instead the triumph 9 has flat laces. Shoe flexibility is good - much better than previous triumphs. Overall the shoe feels light, and somewhat minimalistic. Fabric padding in the heel is much less prominent than in previous triumphs, but seems to be strategically placed. After the first 15-mile run I was reminded why I like the triumph line of shoes so much, they provide an excellent, balanced, and plush ride that has great upper shoe support. The triumph 9 has the traditional arch lock / support that is characteristic of the triumph line. Gone is the heavy hoofed heel of previous triumphs; in its place is a plush, balanced, cloud like ride. Given the new lighter weight materials it will be interesting to see how they hold up as the miles add up. Update: After about 2 weeks running in these (about 150 miles) it is apparent that after some longer 20+ mile runs they are not for me. I have unfortunately started to feel it in my knees. I had to stop running in these shoes. These do still feel ok on shorter runs, they just don't work for me for the long distances.

    • mixed feelings...

      I liked the cushion, feel under the foot and transition during strides. However, the 'sauc-fit' strap on the outside of the instep of the shoe has caused blisters, and I've never had any issue like this before with any other Saucony shoe. Shoes should feel better with miles, these got worse. Nice idea, but poorly executed as this feature causes the shoe to be incredibly uncomfortable. I tried 2 different sizes of this shoe, same issue. The size/shape/etc. of this feature should be changed. I returned these shoes to the store. Change this design and I will buy this shoe again.

    • Wider toe box
      Reviewer: Keith

      3/18/2012

      I have run in Saucony for 25 plus years, the triumph specifically the last few....the toe box had become narrower. I had to special order the wide, and the fit was off. The new triumph thankfully is back to a wider toe box, they feel great...like the sauconys of old. I am thrilled, the best shoes I've had in quite a few years. THANK YOU SAUCONY!!!!

      I have put about 100 miles on these shoes and love them. Took me about a week or so to get use to the lower offset. But I won't go back. I look forward to putting them on.

    • Great Shoe, I recommend!
      Reviewer: BCFinck

      I started with a pair of the Triumph 6's loved them. I hated the 7's and had to switch brands. I ran all my distance events last season in the 8's and bought multiple pair and ever ran my first full marathon in them. I picked up a pair of these 9's and ran a full in them right away and they performed great the heel to toe ratio took a little getting use to, but I'm def a big fan of that change and them being noticeably lighter and more comfortable. I've worn my 8's just for the gym or casual wear and now don't find them as comfortable after wearing these. The duribility seems to better,too. I'm a believer and would definately recommend them. i run half and full marathons.
