Saucony Men's Triumph 17
The Triumph 17! Saucony has eliminated their ISO fit system for their 2020 shoes, so the Triumph goes back to a traditional naming scheme after 5 versions with the ISO name/system. Basically a complete revamp of the shoe, the Triumph 17 changes midsoles, outsoles, and uppers - creating an entirely different experience in the shoe. The Boost-like EVERUN is replaced by an even more Boost-like PWRRUN+ midsole, which is a little lighter, a little more springy, and a little softer.
Saucony Triumph ISO 5 vs Triumph 17
- Saucony has gone back to a more traditional lacing and fit system, replacing the somewhat polarizing ISO system with a technology that they're calling FORMFIT (that's a pretty simple and effective fit system, keeping your feet secure and comfortable), necessitating the name change
- While the change in name and fit system doesn't really make that much difference in overall feel, the rest of the updates do!
- Stepping into the shoe is much more comfortable - it's a really plush, premium experience
- The midsole has seen significant changes and the shoe is much higher, softer, yet also springier - the change in foam from EVERUN to PWRRUN+ is very noticeable
- Overall width is similar, but the toebox is much snugger - especially in terms of depth, but also width
- The revised foam and improved flexibility goes a long way towards making the shoe lighter - both on the scale and on-foot
