Greatest shoes ever!

I feel compelled to write a review on these shoes because of how well they performed during my last marathon. I recently ran the Los Angeles Marathon under the worst climate conditions any runner can possibly expect. A torrential rain came down on all of us before the race had even started and the rain did not stop for the rest of the day. My shoes got soaked wet from the very start but they did not lose any of their cushioning, traction or support during the race. The rain came down so hard at times that it created ankle-deep puddles and rivers of water along the way. I ran through them and these shoes did not become untied, not even once. After the race,I removed my shoes and socks and was surprised to see that I had not developed a single blister on my feet. I have been running marathons for 13 years and I have never used a pair of shoes that are so well built and comfortable such as these. They performed great during my training runs and they surpassed my expectations during the actual marathon. I haven't tried the Triumph 8 yet but when I do, I hope that they are just as great as these. I started using Saucony shoes about 4 years ago because their shoes are well designed and built with good quality materials.

Back to what makes Triumph best

5

10 years ago I developed heel pain. Since then I have been running in Triumphs. RRS recommended Triumphs because they are high cushion and promote a quality heel to toe roll without a significant toe break. Triumph 2s were great. Used 2, 3, 4 and went back to 2s because I liked them better than 4s. But now I have a new favorite, these 7s are terrific. Though they are cushioned, the heel is strong and stable with a gentle roll to the toe. Add Superfeet inserts and heel pain will be gone forever. Speed runners with no heel pain may prefer a quicker toe break but to keep heel pain away Triumph 7s are the best.

A little narrower than the Triumph 6

Tough crowd on RRS! This update isn't that bad. I actually really liked the Triumph 6. The 7 feels a little firmer and slightly narrower. But overall it's a highly breathable shoe with a decent amount of wiggle room in the toe box, which I like. I'm a former pro athlete and a little on the heavy side (6'3", 235 pounds) for running, but I run in these and the Asics Gel Nimbus 11, and couldn't be happier with both. First half and full marathon later this year!

Comfortable great fitting shoe.

I have a wide foot and a narrow heal. I've been described as having a "Saucony Foot" by a footwear salesman. This shoe runs small so size up 1. I normally take a 13 wide but the 14 medium fits perfectly. I chose "feels true to size" because it fits as I expected but it does run small. This is my 5th Triumph model out of the 7 versions and 4 have fit perfectly including the 7. I really like the cushioning and the shoe overall.

Tread wore out at 120 miles

Saucony got every thing right, but the tread. Great support, cushioning, breathable, all around awesome trainer. Thought this shoe could be "the one." But, the black tread on the heals wore down to the red cushioning at 120 miles. I'm not even a major heal striker either. I had these shoes for 26 days before I replaced them with another pair of training shoes. Too, bad.

Great Shoe!!!

This is my fourth pair of Progrid Triumphs. I am 5' 8" and have gone from 184 to the low 170's running in these shoes. Just tried the Progrid 7's today and loved them so much, I ordered a second pair! I have gotten 500 miles out of every pair of Progrid's so far, and I am sure this shoe will hold up as well as thier predecessors.

Bringing back a great shoe??

I am 180lb runner logging 20-25 miles per week. Loved the Triumph 3's and 4's, hated the 5's and 6's. This 7 is getting closer to the old shoe design. The only complaint is the toe box feels narrow at first. Seems to be stretching after several weeks. Like many, I'd love to see shoe companies leave the great shoe designs alone. Oh well....

No complaints!

[...] recommended these to me for arch support because I was starting to have pain in my right arch and feared that it would be a long term problem. Well, she was right and the added support for my high arches has proven to do the trick and the pain is no more. Good cushioning, fairly light and comfortable. I also have a narrow foot and the fit is great.

Great recommendation by Road Runner

5

I am 230 pounds with super high arched size 15 feet. In just getting back into running I had not purchased shoes in a while. These shoes are perfect for me as they are enabling me to get my stride right back with the way they land and move on the pavement. Very good and stable shoe for people with very curvy high arched feet.

Great Shoe!

Great shoe - durable and remains comfortable as I average 25-40 road miles per week and change at approximately 500 miles. I have been running in this shoe for the last couple of years...great with my prescription orthotics as this is the shoe my doctor recommended.

Great shoe

Ran in Saucony Triumphs for years,thought it was time for a change. Tried Nike Vomero 4 and Brooks Defiance. Immediatly got hip pain, right hamstring and heel pain. Changed back to Triumph 7 and am pain free again. When somethings not broken, don't fix it. I learned my lesson !

The good just became better

5

I use these shoes 4 times a week for about 1 h. They are just great. I moved from my old Triumph 5 to the 7, and they are even better than the 5 I loved so much. Great support, great traction, they last for ever and they have a great cushion (at least for a my weight: 155 lbs)

Best training shoe I've ever had

5

Regular Saucony wearers (high arch, narrow heel types) should love this shoe. Has more forefoot cushioning than the Ride 2. You'll need to double-knot the laces, but that's all I can come up with. I hope the Triumph 8 is this good, as I'm on my second pair of 7s.

Great cushioning and responsiveness

5

Switched to the Triumph 7 after using the Ride 2. Love the Ride, but love the Triumph 7 even more. Snug supportive fit and very responsive. I'm 180 lbs. so that may be why I like this and actually preffered the Ride 2 to the Triumph 6. This will be my goto distance shoe.

Comfortable Shoe.

My initial impression was not good, and I almost sent them back; it felt tight/narrow, and a little stiff. That all changed on my first run; the narrowness did not bother me at all and it had great balance between cushion and rebound. I will definitely consider these for my next running shoe purchase.

Great for high-mileage runners

5

Great shoe especially if you don't have wide feet and an average arch. D size is more like a C DO order a half size larger - I had to move from a 9 in the Triumph 6 to a 9.5 in this model Holds up well for about 400 miles

Great shoe; a bit narrow

4

This is a comfortable neutral-plus shoe that is fairly well balanced: not too springy but not too soft either. I find it runs narrower than most shoes and is less well-ventilated than my Mizunos, but otherwise I was happy with it.

USE CAUTION IF YOU HAVE ...

2

USE CAUTION IF YOU HAVE LOW ARCHES! I was wearing Asics and upgraded to these because I was getting toe rub on my middle toe and these have a larger toe box. I will say that these are very comfortable and stable, but I have two issues: 1) I have average size 9.5 feet (extra .5 in a runner) with low arches (not flat feet). The shoes fit ok in the store, but after the first and all subsequent runs, the arch lock causes the edge of the shoe and insole to rub my arch where it becomes very uncomfortable and nearly rubs a blister. 2) I got the shoe because I am a slight supinator and these were supposed to be very forgiving shoes good for correcting supination. Because of the narrow arch and arch lock, it forces me to supinate to compensate for the excessive, uncomfortable pressure on my arches. I have tried trimming the stock insoles and a new pair of gel insles with no success. All in all, probably a good shoe if you have narrow feet and high arches, but supinators and wide

Great shoe for a big runner

I'm 6'2", 205lbs and I wear custom orthotics. I'm a big fan of this shoe. The fit is much better than the Triumph 6. I've tried almost every running shoe out there and this one works for me.

2

Trained for marathons, and went though about 6 pairs of the 6's. I looked forward to the 7's coming out, but I am displeased. The fitting of the shoe is completely different as indicated by every other review I have seen. the arch lock of the shoe definitey does its job, but is much more narrow than the 6's I have developed pain on the top of my tarsals and meta-tarsals on my right foot from the pressure. Also if you look at the sole of the 7's it is a solid piece where as in the 6's there is a gap between the forefoot and the heel of the shoe. This added section has increased the weight of the shoe and decreased the flexibily of the shoe. I am more of a forefoot stiker and the decrease in flexibility creates a more solid impact on the forefoot and less of a roll. At this point I will have to look for another shoe to keep on logging my miles. Hopefull Saucony will see the light and Go back to a model that is similar to the Triumph 6.

I have run on the Progrid Triumph since version 4 or 5. Although this shoe is narrower than previous versions it still fits me well. After 30 miles I'm happy with the shoe. As a heavier runner (230) this shoe supports me well.

Another great product by Saucony. Saucony continues to put out a product that can go from box to a 10-miler without any/little break-in. If Saucony continues to field shoes like this one, I'll continue to buy them.

2

The loose heel problems that came with the change from the Triumph 5 to the Triumph 6 have been fixed in this new model but the toe box feels narrower and the shoe overall feels VERY, VERY hard and stiff. I've done one 4 mile run with them and it sounded like I was running in wooden clogs at every foot strike. I might send these back and try the wide width size, but right now I'm more inclined to send them back and try another Saucony model.

If they're any thing like the triumph 6's I will not buy them either. the 6's were so stiff it was like running in the less expensive Rides. There was no cushioning to speak of which added to my plantar faciitus and made if feel like there was a stone bruise in my forefoot. The heel was so stiff it almost felt like a stability shoe which caused calf tightness. Sorry Saucony. After 3 years and aobut 7 pairs I've moved on to Asics.

A nice solid shoe for training. Excellent fit, great cushioning and good responsiveness. HUGE drawback--this shoe is very heavy. It may be only 'a few ounces more', but they feel like ski boots sometimes. This is true if you're like me and used to lightweight trainers. Still when you switch to racing flats, it may be a psychological boost.

An average shoe. Fit initially felt very tight/small but after a couple of runs loosened up and now fits pretty well. Cushioning is very mediocre - just feels OK, nothing special. Overall this is an OK cushioning shoe, but compared to some on the market (Nimbus, Vomero, Creation) it's hard to see why you'd pick this one. I'll probably keep going until they wear out, but then look somewhere else.

Saucony must have changed their sizing because there is significantly less room in the toe vs. the 3, 4, 5, & 6. Also, the shoe is heavier and stiffer. Wore them for a week and went back to the old 6's (a great shoe). After several years with this series, will have to check out other brands.
