Amzazing shoes, doesn't feel like your touching the ground. Didn't need breaking in, first week ran a 10k race

Very comfortable, these shoes replace my Mizuno waverider 14's which saw me through the London Marathon. I suffer from Planta Fasciitis in my left foot but since wearing these Saucony's I have been able to run pain free. They are fairly light, very well cushioned, great ventilation. I never feel like I've had a hard run, looking forward to their big test running Edinburgh marathon next year.I have also worn them for a days PE lessons (five in total)and they were brilliant.
Don't really have any, maybe a little pricey but still worth every penny.
I have run for several years and tried many different brands of trainer but I have never found any that give me the comfort that these Saucony's do. I would recommend them to any one who likes a cushioned trainer.I will definitely be puchasing a second pair.

Best running shoes I've ever had. Hands down. Worth buying two pairs.

Very comfortable, good flexibility with plenty of support, and very breathable.
I bought my first pair of saucony in 2004, and ever since then I've been buying the upgraded version of the shoes. These shoes are seriously worth having two pairs around the house. I've put over 600 miles on them so far, and they still feel as good as new.

Good weight/cushioning compromise. Quite expensive but well made and durable

This is my second pair of Triumphs - previously had the 6 which are still in tip top condition despite the hundreds of miles under them. These fit like a glove and the tongue stays put (my only gripe with the 6). The laces are much improved too and the breathability is better too. If you have Asic shaped feet try these as an alternative. If you're a Mizuno or Adidas shaped foot then these are probably a little too wide to feel secure.
Maybe a little expensive but I've found them down to £90.
Top quality training shoe for neutral runners looking for a comfortable and durable product

High quality, well fitting shoe

Since buying these shoes for road running 3-6 mile distances as a casual jogger, I have found them to be an excellent fit, with great cushioning. They have a wide sole and are fair1y light. They were recommended to me as I have had a broken ankle with pins inserted and wanted maximum cushioning. They offer more protection than previous Nike shoes I tried like Lunarelite.
Fairly expensive at £100. No complaints with the durability after the first 5 months running about 10 miles a week. Still look new.
Worth the investment for a quality, well fitting, cushioned shoe with a hardwearing sole.

Putting them on makes you desperate to run.

On RunnersWorld.com, this shoe is identified as ideal for heel strikers, but as a firm forefoot runner I found this shoe very good as well. Put 60 miles on them in two weeks, with no signs of wear. Suitable for track, road and dry trail running. Great support for high arches, which has been a problem with shoes I have had before. Light and comfortable. You can run almost silently in these shoes.
I have been blistering quite badly just below the ball of my foot on the right foot. Not sure if it is the shoe, or the fact that I only changed from heel striking to forefoot running a few months ago. It is a diverse shoe, but don't take it through muddy or wet terrain as there just isn't quite enough grip and then you risk injury.
Quality shoe. Saucony continue to impress me. Suitable for any distance and most terrains.
