LEXINGTON, MA (August 4, 2008)
Although it was announced two months ago, I think its still worth mentioning it and letting the running community knows about how solid the Triumph 5 is. At the time when the shoe was launched it won the coveted "BEST SHOE IN UK" by Runners World UK.

“The Triumph is like the best hotel mattresses: soft and springy, but not mushy,” raved the Outside Buyer’s Guide editors in their review of the winning road shoe. “Articulated outsole lugs and a five-layer sandwich of foam, rubber and thermoplastic in the heel absorb the impact of each foot strike while retaining responsiveness,” they added.
Wear-testers remarked that the plush interior and pillowy tongue make running in the Triumph 5 feel “like walking barefoot on shag carpeting.” Testers also noted that Saucony’s exclusive midfoot Arch Lock™ delivered extra security, translating into speed: “Tempo runs were a breeze,” they raved.
