The Saucony Triumph Iso 3 is a well-cushioned neutral trainer ideal for logging plenty of kilometres at any speed.
The new Saucony Triumph Iso 3 is the latest version of this popular and plush neutral trainer. Offering plenty of cushioning without any added weight, this shoe is ideal for logging lots of mileage at any pace.
Available October 2016 (i.e. now), this neutral running shoe offers a soft and smooth ride using Saucony’s EVERUN technology, a lightweight and well cushioned material that gives the Triumph an almost bouncy feel. And while not designed to specifically provide added stability, the cushioning certainly gives the feel of a more supportive shoe without the stiffness or added weight.
Weight: 10.5 oz (Men’s size 9); 9.2 oz (Women’s size 9)
Offset: 8mm (Heel 30mm; Toe 22mm)
Most of the changes made to the Triumph 3 versus older editions are subtly made to the shoe’s design and construction–including a re-engineered ISOFIT mesh upper that reduces friction and minimizes chafing– but a major cosmetic change comes in the form of reduced overlays which keeps the top of your foot feeling secure but also less obstructed.
The forefoot also seems to be a bit softer and more flexible than previous versions of the shoe and uses Saucony’s TRI-FLEX outsole design that provides both greater ground contact and optimal flexibility.
We got our feet on a pair of these and managed to accumulate over 300K within just a few weeks. We took them for long runs, tempo runs, easy runs and even speedwork. While a bit heavy for track work and racing, the Triumph Iso 3 is an ideal training shoe for logging serious time on your feet. We can’t get over just how soft and cushioned they feel, even after a month of regular use. They are beyond comfortable and are a great option for those looking for a neutral shoe that nonetheless offers an abundance of cushioning.
