You know that a review on running shoes is just a subjective opinion, because different runners like different things in different amounts of their shoes. However, there are some areas where a shoe can impress almost objectively, and one of them makes a quick run easier, or at least easier, than you would expect.
On almost every run I carried the Saucony Triumph ISO 5 I occasionally looked at my GPS watch and usually discovered that I was running faster than I thought. I'm near the end of a marathon training cycle and I'm running on most days. I think I have a pretty good idea of my pace. That's why I'm rarely so surprised. So I will praise the Triumph ISO with great praise, with the resilient Everun technology in the shoe claiming the lion's share of the credit.
Evercon is Saucony's proprietary cushioning technology, using similar materials as Adidas boost foam and as such has similar energy-returning properties. The Triumph ISO 5 features a full-length Everun midsole and Everun outsole, and although it's a fairly heavy, well-padded shoe, it still has the spring to run fast.
This is particularly impressive The Triumph ISO 5 is undoubtedly a shoe that is designed primarily for the highest wearing comfort. It has a plush padded tongue and heel, a breathable yet close-fitting upper with a lacing system that adapts better to your foot, and a thick padding on the bottom.
Other comfort-first shoes such as the Brooks Glycerin 1
The Triumph ISO 5 is by no means an absolute Speedster, but I would definitely say something that most runners would like to wear for a half or full marathon as a comfortable shoe in which you can still keep up a high pace. That said, Everun is also available in Saucony's Ride ISO and Freedom ISO 2 shoes. Lighter than the Triumph ISO 5. Therefore, runners who focus solely on PBing may find a better choice for racing in Saucy's lineup.
Saucony has nailed the highly padded running shoe with the Triumph ISO 5 extremely comfortable ride and yet plenty of speed, so you do not have to add another shoe if you want to increase the pace.
