SAUCONY TRI­UMPH ISO 4

Canadian Running - - FALL SHOE GUIDE -

Men’s 306 g (10.8 oz.); Women’s 266 g (9.4 oz.); Drop ra­tio: 8 mm; $190

The Tri­umph has steadily found its groove over the last few years as one of the most re­li­able cush­ioned neu­tral t rain­ers avail­able. It’s now been out­fit­ted with Saucony’s pre­mium up­per fit sys­tem, iso, which does in­deed iso­late the foot in the shoe and keep it snug through­out the land­ing and toe-off of each stride.

The Tri­umph iso 4 be­comes the sec­ond shoe to get the full Everun treat­ment, mean­ing that in­stead of just the top sole, the en­tire mid­sole is made of the ma­te­rial. Everun is sup­posed to be three times as durable as eva and not as sen­si­tive to cold tem­per­a­tures (a ma­jor plus for Cana­di­ans).Like the other shoe cur­rently rigged out with full Everun, the Free­dom iso, our testers found it quite soft and an al­most bouncy toe off. This makes for a nice aug­mented ex­pe­ri­ence to an al­ready won­der­fully plush ride.
