    It has a low profile design and works great not just as a running shoe but an everyday athletic shoe as well. That being said, the technology that is used in the Triumph is what makes it a first choice for distance runners time and time again.

  • 70 / 100 by Running Shoes Guru • Thomas Caughlan • Level 4 expert

    The Triumph is a full featured shoe with great cushioning in the same vein as the Asics Kayano and Brooks Glycerin.

  • 96 / 100 by Running Magazine • Running Magazine • Level 3 expert

    The Triumph feels like a lighter trainer but has the guts to survive many long runs. I’m happy that Saucony hasn’t changed much with this shoe, as there wasn’t much that needed changing.

  • 80 / 100 by The Running Shoe Review • Nick • Level 3 expert

    The Sauc Fit needs a tweak, as it can be irritating, but all in all, the shoe is excellent.

  • 84 / 100 by Running Shoes And Advice • Scott Stevens • Level 2 expert

    The Saucony Triumph is basically an improved version of the old Triumph. Even without vast changes, the Triumph offers many several subtle differences to improve comfort, feel, and durability.

  • 86 / 100 by Runner's World • Adam Winans • Level 1 expert

    The most notable feature in this shoe was the cushioning. No matter how many miles I’ve logged, the cushioning has remained intact, especially in the forefoot

Updates to Saucony Triumph 11

  • The Saucony Triumph 11 had minimal changes, but it offers an improvement in the feel, comfort, and durability. Saucony Triumph 11 is designed with a new upper. The upper is updated with additional welded overlays. This design improves the fit and reduces the weight. The heel collar offers a very plush feel and a pampering comfort in the upper.
  • The shoe also had a better iBR+ outsole, making the forefront more comfortable. A deeper flex groove is also made in the forefoot for comfort and flexibility, while the PowerGrid technology in the midsole enhances the plush feel.
  • This shoe was also designed with a new crashpad which comes with three fully-decoupled pods. This design offers a smooth landing in each stride and a very efficient transition from heel to toe. The SRC Impact Zone also helps in the smooth landing while reducing the pressure by absorbing shock.

Saucony Triumph 11 size and fit

The Saucony Triumph 11 is true to size with length on standard size, but with a wider fit. The toe box is wider and fits the medium to large mid-foot and forefoot. The heel is fit at medium size as well.


Outsole

The outsole of the Triumph 11 comes with the iBR+ rubber. This is a type of rubber that is light in weight and with more provision for cushioning. A premium carbon rubber XT-900 is placed on the outsole for excellent traction and grip and for the needed durability.


Midsole

The midsole of the Triumph 11 come with the PowerGrid technology. This is a full-length foam midsole that is the lightest and most cushioned EVA for shoes. Because of this, the shoe is lightweight, soft, responsive, and comfortable. The Grid technology also absorbs shock and reduces pressure.

The midsole are also integrated with SRC Impact Zone and Impact Interface that helps attenuate shocks while keep the heel protected.


Upper

The upper of the Triumph 11 comes with the Sauc-Fit, a Saucony exclusive upper design and technology that stretches to hug the mid-foot, and to allow the forefoot and the heel to move and flex naturally. Saucony also uses the HydraMax Collar lining for moisture management and for the reduction of blisters. The ComfortLite Sockliner serves as the contoured EVA sock liner for softer and more comfortable inner. The upper is also equipped with the HRC Strobel Board for comfort and the Supportive underlays are also used for a snug fit feel.
