5-9 150 lbs heel striker & underpronate, 20-30 miles per week. within 100 miles with these shoes developed achilles tendonitis in both feet and plantar fascilitis in my right foot. had to take 3 months off of running. heel cushion is minimal for a neutral cush shoe. no previous problems in supernova cush and nimbus.

I started having plantar pane at 125 miles in this shoes, which is unexceptable. The nike air max moto is a much better choice. I have put on more than 150 miles with no pain! I think I will stick to nike and asics from now on. Not good if you are an overpronator. I would stay far away from this shoe.

Excelente zapatilla. Muy flexible para toda la amortiguacion que tienen. Estoy muy contento con ellas. Ya tengo tres pares y por ahora no hay quejas. Mas blandas que las Asics Nimbus, que eran las que usaba hasta ahora. Y desde luego mucho mejor que las Nike Vomero 3, que compre un par y tuve que dejar de usarlas. Para mi tipo de pie eran muy rigidas. Tengo arco alto, mido 174 cm, peso 72 kilos, y entreno unos 35-40 km a la semana. Estoy preparando el Ironman Lanzarote (En las Islas Canarias, Spain)

By Walt

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Triumph 5 Running Shoe:

I've worn nothing but Sauconys for almost twenty years now; some good, some excellent, none really bad. But, generally, new "editions" have been improvements. Not so, now. The Triumph Four is/was the best shoe I've ever worn. I bought four of them. But the Five is far less supportive. Even in general wear (not running) I find I've sore legs just wearing it all day. [Judging from the reviews of the Six...we're not out of the woods yet. I'm with Bob in the Six reviews; just waiting to see/wear Seven... and hoping it's a return to the outstanding qualities of Four. And I hope Saucony reads these reviews; that they're not just for RoadRunner customers.]

By Kevin

Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Triumph 5 Running Shoe:

I moved to the Triumph5 from Nike's Structure Triax and absolutely fell in love with these shoes. My foot is a bit wide, but still fit in a D width. These shoes are a bit wider than others, which was great for me. I also tried on the Tri6's but didn't like the narrower feel. Very responsive and my shin splints disappeared after running with these. Heel cushioning is very good, and the shoe hugs your mid foot comfortably. First run, I put 10 miles on them without any pains or complaints.

Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Triumph 5 Running Shoe:

This shoe is a mixture of good and bad. Relatively light, decent forefoot cushioning, excellent flexibility, and good tread pattern. Fit requires vast improvement. Fit is sloppy all over and best for a runner with an extra wide foot. For a narrow foot, it's a poor choice. If this shoe was sized for a narrower foot, I think this shoe would be a good choice for a long distance trainer.

Just finished the Chicago Marathon in these. I trained in them and have found them to be a great pair of running shoes. Tried on the Triumph 6 at the Expo--they are more cushioned than the 5, but I'll move to the 6b when the 5s are no longer available. Until then, I will stock up on this shoe--great for distance running.

This shoe did not have enough coushining for me. As well, rocks were constantly getting in the tread which was a bit annoying. Suggest either the Brooks Glycerin or New Balance 1062.

I am a 190 pound midfoot striker with a real high arch..an an orthotic wearer in my left foot only...I normally wear a nine ..had to go to a 9.5 in these...real comfortable out of the box..not as soft as the Vomero but a little too soft for my personal taste..I agree with the reviewer who commented that it doesnt actually support the arch but rather allows natural motion and then controls the midfoot torsion...I think these would be ok for a slight overpronator but mild overpronators might want to look elsewhere..For me..I am sticking with the Mizuno Creation...although the TRIUMPH 5 is a great fit for my foot shape..IN SUMMARY..above average shoe for the right biomechanics...

Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Triumph 5 Running Shoe:

I am into my second pair of these and I notice the wear on the outersole (midfoot) area is not holding up well only after 75 miles. I run on pavement mainly long run. I like these better then the 4's lighter, more flexible. But if your looking for firmer, more cushioned, more stable shoe then the 4's triumph over the 5. 4 stars only cause of the short life. Im lucky if I get 200 out of these.

Comments about Mens Saucony ProGrid Triumph 5 Running Shoe:

I had been running in Glycerins for a couple of years. My doctor recommended getting something more cushioned because I have some sensitive nerves on the ball of my right foot--when I run on trails and step over rocks, I get a sharp pain up my entire leg. I decided to give these a try and boy am I a happy runner now. I had tried the Triumph 4's but had problems with rubbing in the arch area. These fit like gloves and are very, very nicely cushioned without the marshmellow feel of other softer shoes--Vomeros come to mind. Great shoe. Please don't change this Saucony.

I just recently started running again, after a long hiatus and typically do around 25 miles a week and wow this shoe is great. I was running in another brand that didn't do my legs justice and I had a lot of knee and shin pain. After two runs in these shoes, the pain is gone and these shoes have done the trick. The shoe is very lightweight with great heel cushioning, it feels like I'm running on air! I'm not a distance runner, I just run to stay in shape and for enjoyment, these shoes have saved my legs, thank you!

I don¿t understand Saucony: ¿If it's not broken, don't fix it!¿. Triumph was a great shoe since model 2 through 4 with minimal changes, mostly esthetics.

I lamented the change from the 4 to the 5 a few posts down the thread. If you are looking for the feel of the Triumph 4, then look no further than the NIKE AIR VOMERO +3. Same fit and cloudlike feel of the Triumph 4. Saucony lost an former fan.

Good shoe with above average cushioning. The jury is still out on the "Arch-Lock" system. The system seems to support the medial part of foot rather than the arch itself. I have a high arches and I'm not super impressed with the arch support. If it had a bit more cushion and a more definitive arch support, I'd give them a 5. Overall, a good to very good running shoe.

Actually, these so far are much better than the 4's. I have about 100 miles on them, and they have been great. The 4's felt like bricks on your feet. These feel much more light and nimble while maintaining great cushioning.

Arrrgghhh! Why do they insist on changing the models. Absolutely loved the Triumph 4...ran thru 3 pair. The new model is a bit of a disappointment. Toe box is too narrow and does not have the same cloud-like feel of the 4. Will likely go back to Asics for my next pair!

Saucony...why have you forsaken me??? You perfected the shoe with the Triumph 2, but have fallen way short since then. I keep trying your latest models, but continue to be disappointed with your "upgrades". Can you make the Triumph 2 again? I'm 5'10, 210 lbs and have crushed the 3, 4 and 5 within one week...help....

Avid fan of the 4; 25-35 miles per week. Fit great out of the box with little break-in period. The split heal intrigued with added flexability upon contact. Unfortunately the 5 just did not feel quite right for me. The reduced weight created instablilty during transition. The toe box became too soft and expensive generating a mushy feel. The might work for some; it left me longing for my beloved 4's.

Have put about 25 miles on these shoes and I love them. I am over 200 lbs and blow through the Trigon rides in about 250 miles. If you ever tried the Triumph 4 but wished they were softer, this is your shoe. My kudos to Saucony for this model.

Way better shoe overall than the nimbus, but I would highly recommend the saucony trigon ride. Better fit, better cushion.

Ran Marathon shortly after buying these as they needed little break in. These shoes do fit with orthotics well. Highly recommended for cushion shoe with orthotics they also have a nice wide toe box.

This is a great running shoe right out of the box. I normally wear a size 13 shoe, but I found this shoe to be a little undersized. Definitely go with 1/2 to 1 size more than you usually wear.

These shoes are so soft and comfortable that they did not even need to be broken in right out of the box. So light and breathable it feels like you are running barefoot. Not much support, so non-neutral runners might encounter some problems. Reccomended for anyone who wants to put on the extra miles without feeling it in their feet.

Awesome update. I'm 6', 190lbs, run 30-45mpw on fire roads, trails, and the road. This shoe is fantastic out of the box. Fit is true, plenty of room in the forefoot and toebox (I normally wear a 2E, but the D fits well). I had a problem with the "4" rubbing my heels raw, so we'll see how this compares, but great shoe. I switched to this shoe on a doctor's recommendation coming off of broken foot.

Got these after trying the Triumph 4 and I am very pleased. These shoes have just the right balance between cushioning and support and they seem very light and durable as well.

This shoe is too soft for heavier runners and the toe box is very narrower. I'm going back to the nimbus by asics and i never should've tried switching

I am loyal to the Triumphs, and this model (5) keeps me coming back for more. The shoe is noticeably lighter with enough cushion for long runs. It is also not nearly as stiff as the 4's.

Tried a pair and was pleased - firm but enough cushoning so feet don't get sore after long runs. They feel fast and light, also.

I purchased these at an RRS store at the recommendation of a salesperson there. I have orthotics that do not fit well in most shoes, but they fit great in these. The heel is designed to decouple landings and makes for a smoother heel-toe transition, and it was very noticeable. The cushioning lasts through each run. Very enjoyable shoe to run in.

I ran a 1/2 marathon 2 weeks ago and got a PR in these shoes. I just finished the St. Jude Marathon today and got another PR. The cushioning never let up. I am a firm believer in Saucony's slogan, "loyal to the sport" as I am to Saucony after wearing this shoe!

Only had this shoe for a couple weeks and I love the cushion. I'm 6'2" 210 lbs and it definitely supports my larger frame. Better than the Triumph 4.

not enough cushioning for larger runner over 180, and forefoot is much narrower every time this shoe gets updated its a brand new shoe, completely different from last model.
