Saucony Triumph 10 Review #FindYourStrong

I admit, I am a Saucony addict. I have tried several other brands of running shoes, but the moment I slipped on my first pair of Sauconys, I was in love, and have never looked back. That said, I was BEYOND excited when given the opportunity to try and review the new Triumph 10! I have been running in Kinvaras for over a year, and was excited to see what the Triumph was like.

I tested these out on various distances from 2 miles to 12 miles, and my overall impression: TWO thumbs UP! Yet again, Saucony created a solid running shoe. So… the details…. the heel drop in these is 8mm, which is great for most runners, but, for me, switching from the Kinvara with a 4mm drop, I noticed it. My issue is that when I get tired on a run, I heel strike. More shoe in this area makes it easier for me to heel strike because I don’t feel it the same way I do with less distance between my heel and the ground. This is not a negative of the shoe…. just my preference. The arch support on these shoes fit perfectly to the arch in my foot. I mean perfectly. I couldn’t even feel it there. That is a sign of a well fitted shoe. The cushioning was great, but not too much, your foot felt hugged and cared for, without the sneaker feeling clunky on your foot. Also, the toe box was perfectly roomy. More than enough room for my toes to spread out and be comfy without being too big. The upper is fitting and not constricting.

Overall, this is a great shoe. For runners that are at that heel drop, or neutral runners looking for a new shoe to try, I highly recommend these. They yet again manage to give the perfect amount of cushioning, support, and flexibility in this shoe. These will be my short distance shoes in my sneaker rotation.

Roomy toe box
Good Cushioning
Flex Fit Upper (snug but not constricting)
Laces easily stay tied without triple tying them (hey, this is important!)
Arch support just right

Looser than other shoes, but fixable with how they are laced and trying them on for the right size/fit
Heel a little loose

Well… after raving about these, I am ready to lace ’em up and hit the road for a run!! Thanks Saucony for such great running shoes!!!
