The Triumph is the premier Saucony neutral shoe and the epitome of their technology and smooth ride. This is the third round of their simplified approach - focus on geometry and only add the necessary components to enhance the ride, a combination of foam and textiles to wrap the foot comfortably.
The upper continues with wide open air mesh - altered slightly from round 10, trading the traditional synthetic leather overlays for pre-shaped plastic toe bumper and heel support, alternately for a roomy forefoot and a snug fit in the heel. The midfoot is closed mesh with a medial support that links to the Sauc-Fit stretch panel, and shores up the medial side while still flexing with the foot.The midsole has an 8 millimeter drop, middle ground from a traditional 10-12 millimeter drop to those even flatter. The Powergrid compound, an EVA blend proven in round 10, offers resiliency and responsiveness, a hallmark of the Triumph, though this round is a touch firmer than previously. The XT-900 carbon heel and injected iBR+ forefoot, remain unchanged thanks to their effectiveness. The essential point is that the Triumph 11 continues to deliver plush, high mileage performance.
