Finally got it right again! I left Nimbus when Saucony made this shoe great around model 4.. Then, I left Saucony after the past several disappointing models and went back to Nimbus. I reluctantly tried the 8, and I love them. The cushioning is great and the transition is very smooth. Hoping Saucony doesn't mess a good thing up again.
I've been wearing Saucony for years, always the same size (1/2 a size up) and just bought my first pair of the Triumph 8's in December. It doesn't feel much different from the Triumph 7, which I really liked, but it does feel larger, and this is a bit of a problem. Side by side, it looks the same but when I run -- which I do every day, usually on the side of the road since the sidewalks are now covered with ice -- I've had near trips on several occasions. I can only attribute that to the slightly larger feeling at the toe end. Dropping down a size seems counter-intuitive so meanwhile, I'm alternating between my T-7's and T-8's and withholding final judgment.
I have 2 pairs of ProGrid Triumph 7s. I like them but they always felt too heavy. I wear them to the gym and to run as well. These ProGrid Triumph 8s are so much lighter and don't feel as big on my feet. I took them out of the box and ran 7 miles yesterday and they felt great. Today at the gym, the shoes felt so much lighter during step class. Great support and comfortable too!
so far so good
So far its good. The heel continues through the mid sole and I am not sure if that will always be comfy as it wears down
I do prefer prior versions w respect to the midsole. Forefoot
feels great. my orthotics work fine in them.
Good running shoe
I always buy Saucony and since the Triumph 4 I've stuck with the Triumph (I HATED the Triumph 1, 2, and 3). Interestingly, I seem to like every other model, most often the odd numbers. I have no idea why. My favs have been the Triumph 4, 5, and 7. The Triumph 8 is a good fit, but as I've run in them over the 6 weeks I've had them, I feel like they're not going to last very long -- they already feel like they're losing some life. For perspective: I run 4 days a week, between 20-30 miles total, and rotate my sneakers. I only run in these 1 or 2 days a week. I'm rotating them with a pair of Saucony Triumph 7s I had tucked away for that inevitable time when the sneaker companies decide to get rid of our favorite shoes in favor of new and "improved" models (grrrrrr!). Honestly, if I could get more Triumph 7s, I'd probably stick with them instead of the 8s. I do like the fit and the cushion of the Triumph 8, and they support my feet without getting in my way, but I wonder about their durability.

Quality shoe that keeps me running
As a middle aged marathoner, the quality of my shoes is very important. My joints do not ache when I run in these shoes because they provide a lot of stability and cushioning.
Can't stop running
Definitely a great update from the Triumph 7. Feels more reminiscent of the Triumph 6. Much lighter with great cushioning. I'm so happy to be back in Saucony.
Comfy and Durable
I have been running and working out in the triumph since model 5. I saw a big improvement from 6 to 7 due to the grid change, which was a good one for stability. The 8's have slightly more cushion than the 7's, which make for a more comfortable long run. While the triumph isn't the lightest shoe on the market, it is very durable and versatile between the road, gym, and trails. I really love the Triumph!
I love these shoes. This purchase was for my 2nd pair, so now I have 2 to rotate out. One gold, one blue. These are one of the shoes recommended for my feet using Shoe Dog. I tried on a few but these had the best balance: lightweight, supportive, and breathable. They are the first pair that have helped eliminate knee pain. I won't run long distances without them.
I love these shoes!
I have been wearing these (the various versions of the Triumph) as my trainer for several years. This version has better fit through the toe box. There are no annoying external designs that rub on the pinky toe (like one version did several back). Very comfortable, reliabe, and enduring.
The shoe is very comfortable to run in on various terrains. I do feel it does not last due to the webbing- but I can use the shoe for a good 500 miles and then a new pair! I do sometimes have problems with a feeling of my foot slipping in the shoe, esp on a treadmill.
great falls, montana
These shoes offered the most support of the three ones that I tried out. These have been great for long walks with my dog on hilly streets. I am thinking about inserts to make them even better for arch support but they are doing pretty good without so far.

Great improvements, Saucony!
I've been wearing the Triumph for over 2 years now. I love the 8! A nice improvement over the 7 in the box of the shoe and great cushioning and support. I hope Saucony keeps this shoe like this; it feels great!
I am a runner

I run from 3-18 miles at a time on trails or pavement. This is my third pair. I have tried others but I prefer these. They are so very light, flexible and comfortable. Love the cushioning.

Good fit and comfortable
I use this shoe for walking, but they're so buttery comfy that I can almost run in them. They are everything I wanted in a rec shoe, except they run about one-half size larger than marked.
San Diego, CA
Good, solid running shoe
These shoes are similar to Asics Nimbus 12. Comfortable and durable. I'm still in search for the perfect shoe...
