I bought the earlier version of this shoe to trade off with my Brooks Ghost and Brooks PureFlow 1. I really liked the shoe in terms of cushioning and durability, but found that it slipped on my heel all the time. The only fix was to knot the laces all the way up using a specialty knot I found online for just this problem. The issue was that the shoelaces weren't long enough, so I had to buy another pair of longer shoelaces to meet my knotting needs. My feet would sometimes go numb due to this, but I loved the shoe so much that I tolerated it. I put almost 500 miles on the shoes and still loved them (except for the knotting issue). Then, the 11's new/current version came out. I don't know exactly what they changed, but the heel slippage issue is gone!! I didn't need to change shoelaces or knot them in any special way for them to fit comfortably. My feet no longer get numb. Plus, I still get all of the comfort that I received from the last version. Yay! Even though my older pair were not worn out, I pitched them as soon as I tried the new version. I just LOVE the new version so much more than the older ones, though there isn't a huge difference in feel--only fit in the heel, at least for me.
I wear these shoes as daily trainers, although I rotate them with the new Brooks PureFlow (3). I run about 40 - 50 miles a week and I am 43 years old. I have a somewhat high arch and I weigh about 120 lbs. I am a mid-foot striker who can't wear a shoe that has a huge heel to toe drop without it bothering my achilles tendon. These are medium in that regard (I think the drop is somewhere between 8 - 11 mm), but I am still able to wear them comfortably despite the larger heel/toe drop. I can wear these on my long runs (~ 10 - 12 miles) without feeling a lot of wear and tear on my legs.
Saucony, please do not change this shoe! I love the updates and need this shoe for my longer distance runs.

Finally, I found a pair of Sauconys that work for me again. I've been running in Sauconys for more than 20 years and I struggled to find a pair of running shoes that didn't cause injury since Saucony changed the heel to toe drop height a couple of years ago. I have loved Saucony shoes because I have ankles that tend to turn easily and the heel support is amazing! I ended up trying different versions of Sauconys and even changed to a pair of Asics after trying on several other brands that should have worked too. All eventually caused pain in my knees when I would run more than about 2-3 miles a day and I was experiencing hamstring problems.
I finally read something that made me believe that these might be different and I decided to give them a chance (thank goodness for the VIP return policy). I have a slight movement in the back by the heel but overall these shoes are great! I'm back to running 5+ miles daily without problems.
I'd still lobby to make some shoes with the 12mm drop height (please listen Saucony), but these have allowed me to run without the injuries that were plaguing me for the last few years. If you are struggling with the heel to toe drop change, give them a try. Hopefully, they'll help for you!
Best shoe of my life!
Am a 5'5" 110 pound, 65-year-old suppinator with high arch and narrow heel prone to knee and hip problems. This shoe fits me well after the previous year's model felt uncomfortable. Only the most heavily cushioned sneaker that throws my outside heel inward while allowing my whole foot "freedom" will do for the rough landscaping work I do. (I can no longer run.) I thought I was in heaven the first time I put these on my feet.
For many years I had been a successful wearer of Asics high-end neutral shoes until they narrowed the women's toeboxes across the board so that I couldn't wear them. Then I tried and failed with the Brooks Glycerin 11 because its tongue was sewn to a sleeve inside that, because it did not adjust well, made my foot go numb as it expanded throughout the day.
I can say nothing bad about the Saucony Triumph 11 and hope the company NEVER changes it.

Great shoes for beginner marathoner
I was sold on the Triumph series when I began training for my first marathon in June 2013. Since then, I've bought 4 pairs for training and for the race itself. The 10's worked out well during the marathon, having survived the heat and rainstorm that bombarded the race! The 11's don't feel much different to me than the 10's, which is totally a-ok, since I loved the 10's. They are very comfortable and I've had much less pain in my knees and feet since switching to them from Mizunos. They're also very durable -- though I buy a new pair every 4-5 months, I still switch out between the old ones for shorter runs and workouts at the gym.
Lightweight, nice support
I wore the Saucony Hurricanes for fifteen years until the newer models got too "mushy." I have neuromas in both feet, so I need a wide toe box. The Triumphs are just wide enough not to squeeze and irritate the neuromas after I broke them in. It took a few runs. I have a high arch and that support was better than most shoes. I am 5'9", 155 lbs and run 3-6 miles 2-3x week. Slow, recreational runner. I usually wear a 7.5, but always buy Saucony in an 8. These shoes are nicely lighter weight. I've worn these shoes for 2 months now and they are fine. I don't love them, but they are the best I've found for my needy feet.
Glad they are endangered!
I never rate products but...I've been wearing Triumphs for years. This version for me is terrible. The 2 pairs I've had have both ripped inside, at the back of the heel. I'm always careful putting on/taking off my shoes because they are so expensive (thank goodness at least for VIP discounts). This is the only version this has ever happened to. First pair lasted 6 wks, 2nd 8wks...naturally a new pair arrived BEFORE the 2nd pair ripped otherwise I wouldn't have bought them. My other Triumphs had the same innersoles/orthotics in them so that's not it; my mileage has gone down. What is the problem? I am very disappointed because overall these shoes FEEL good when I run...until they rip!!!
I've been wearing Sauconys for decades because I have wide feet and a high arch, and they always had such nice big toe boxes. I know about ordering a half size up, which I always do. I don't know what changed, but the last two pairs I've ordered have been way too narrow - almost like old Nikes. They also feel too short, but that may be because my feet are squished sideways. I ordered yet another pair this just now because I'm going to try yet again to get a pair that fit, but it's not looking too good. I'm tired of returning shoes, even with RRS's service.
This is my first time wearing Sauconys. I've been a Newton girl for the last 3 years but then started developing plantar fasciitis and achilles tendonitis so was searching for something with more support and stability. I don't necessarily think these offer superior support and stability (I would say average) but they do provide good cushioning, breathability, feel for the most part fairly lightweight and overall they get the job done. I run anything from 5ks to marathons and would choose this shoe for any of my training and events.

Stocking the Closet
This shoe felt right from the first time i put them on. Much improved over the Triumph 10 which i did not care for at all. I am mostly a mid foot striker who averages 50 to 60 miles a week and these shoes last for a good 400 miles. Some reviews stated that they were lose around the heel, but I have not had that problem when tied correctly.
Much Better than the 10
I have had every Saucony Triumph. I am 5'8" and weigh about 140 pounds. I have a narrow heal, high arch, and wide toes. I did not like the 10, as the toe box felt tight. I decided to give this a try and have run over 100 miles in it. It took longer to break in and felt stiffer than others. However, after a few short runs, I found it to be a great shoe.

Not nearly as good as Triumph 10
I loved the feel and fit of the Triumph 10 and was looking to try the 11 in a colorful combo. I expected the fit to be the same or better, however it was not. My feet hurt after walking 2 miles in the Triumph 11. Could also feel the Saucony logo on the side of foot which was odd. Returned them and luckily found the Triumph 10 in my size in a different color.
I really like these running shoes. I bought a pair after a Saucony rep brought them to a local run for testing. I've always run in GEL- Nimbus or Kinsei. I ran 24 miles in them the first three uses and I had no issues. I did choose to exchange for a half size up because my normal size felt just a little restrictive.
The '11's' are excellent. They feel like the '9's' but better. No heel slip!!! I always put in extra arch support on top of the shoe's insert and they still feel great...I hope they do not change the design.
I walk briskly a minimum 20 miles a week. Love these light weight shoes that offer great cushion and nice size toe box. I have a medium to wide foot and very high arch and in step. I highly recommend.
Love the shoe!
I run about 30-40 miles per week. I order new ones every two months. They are great for the first few weeks but do wear out very quickly.
I walk several hours a day on a gym floor running after kids. I added the special molded inserts and my feet no longer hurt.

I need a wide shoe. This is almost too wide, but works well with my orthotics.
Feels like a slipper
Lightweight and great support
