I hate to be the only reviewer, so far, who had a problem with these shoes. I tried them on, and they felt great! True to size and width, well cushioned, and supportive. I have problem feet and have had surgery several times. I tried them on at the end of the day (when my feet are really beat), and they still felt great. I wore them around the house that evening and decided they felt good enough to try for work the next day. I always wear shoes around the house for a few days before venturing outside, but these felt so good the first evening, I thought I had finally found my shoes. Sadly, the next day, my feet got progressively more sore and uncomfortable as I wore these shoes. It started in the left arch/inside ankle area (my usual trouble spot). When I took them off, my foot was throbbing, and even my toes hurt. On day two, I had the same exact pain in the right foot (not usually a trouble spot). By the time I gave up on day three, my feet hurt so badly that I was practically in tears. I called Saucony customer service to see if maybe these shoes needed a break-in period. Maybe I just over did it. They told me that their shoes are designed to be comfortable from day one and usually do not need a break-in period. Plus, any time that I have had to break in a shoe, it got better, not worse, with time. I used to wear the Saucony Integrity ST and did not have to break them in. Now, to the actual point of this review. The Saucony representative told me that this shoe is the update to the Triumph 8. The heel-to-toe differential has been lowered from a 12mm offset to an 8mm offset. That does not mean much to me, but any time an offset has been listed with a shoe I have worn, it has always been 12mm. The rep said that about 50 percent of the people who wore the Triumph 8 are having problems wearing the Triumph 9. I have never worn the Triumph 8, but I guess my feet are just used to a 12mm offset with other shoes. So if these shoes bother you, it may be the 8mm heel-to-toe offset.

I love Saucony, but these hurt my feet like no other pair of shoes that I have ever owned. I am very thankful for Zappos' return policy. I wore them around my carpeted house for the day and not even two hours in, I was developing blisters. The arch support is so poor that I could feel the ache in my arches the next day! I also felt that the back was almost digging into my heel instead of hugging it. I have had success with Saucony's wide sneakers in the past (I am between an 8½W-9W, brand dependent) but these just did not work out for me.

This is a fantastic shoe for my picky left foot that had two Morton's Neuroma surgeries and consequent nerve damage. I have tried many walking and running shoes to find something I can have on my feet for more than 20 minutes. Though I don't run but am attempting to get back to walking more, this is the only shoe of many brands and other Saucony shoes as well, that I can wear comfortably. It has a wider toe box than most. It has breathable and flexible mesh in the forefoot and it has flex in the forefoot. It surpasses the Asics Gel Nimbus 13, Nike Air Pegasus + 28, and various New Balance styles I have tried and sent back and the other Saucony ProGrid Ride 4. Before these surgeries I was a diehard New Balance person but all of those in my closet I can't wear now. I read a lot of reviews and chose the styles above by what others said especially on runners world.com which tests these types of shoes and the forefoot runners recommended them. This was the only one that was recommended that I could wear comfortably. I highly recommend it for others with issues in the forefoot and I am seriously considering getting a second pair. I got the gray, turquiose, and green and have had many compliments on them. I wish they had other colors besides the neon green or white choices.

These are awesome shoes! I usually wear the Hurricanes but decided to try these. They are so comfortable: the toe box, cushioning, heel stability, lighter weight, etc. My knees love them! The color is electrifying.

These are an awesome color; however, the insole did not have as much arch support as my other Saucony Echelons. Love Sauconys but probably shouldn't have paid the extra to get these.

These shoes are comfortable, but were wider than expected in the toe box. I sized up as suggested in other reviews and by Saucony. I usually wear a 7.5, I went with the 8.5 and they are very roomy width wise but not lengthwise. I think if I went with an 8 they would be too short.

So disappointed in these shoes. I have been buying Saucony for years but after only a month the side of both shoes nearest the little toe gave way and I was experiencing pain in my feet. Not much arch support either. Up until now I had no complaint about Saucony shoes and often recommended them. Rethinking that now.

Not only do I have a high arch, high instep and wide foot. I also have Plantar Fasciitis. This has been the most comfortable athletic shoe I have had in at least a decade. I didn't even have to break them in. I put them on and started walking! I couldn't recommend a sneaker any higher. I'm dying for another pair. (I selected "wider than marked" because they are a regular width but fit my wide foot comfortably.)

I have a very large foot and I am 5'10" 160 lbs and Saucony and Asics are some of the only shoes that will carry stock in a 11.5 or 12 that also can with stand my size and not break down quickly. I love my Saucony shoes. They are the most comfortable shoes. I used to wear Nike and when I found this pair I was amazed how much pressure and return shock it took from my back. I have severe back problems and this brand is I think the best shoe I have found for comfort and functionality. Great product.

Great replacements! I have been wearing my first pair of Saucony Triumphs for over a year and they are DONE! I was worried about replacing them however, because I'm 6 weeks away from a full marathon and concerned about any modifications Saucony may have done with the new model. Happy to report no issues and supreme comfort!! These have some slight heel drop difference but not enough to cause pain or issues running. And they're even cute!!

These are the very best running shoes that I have ever had. I tend to supinate or under pronate and I have wide feet, these Sauconys seem to be custom fit for my type of running and the shape of my feet. I am so very pleased as I have literally gone through so many different kinds and brands, Nike, Salomans, Asics and none have the comfort or the fit that these running shoes have. I did order Brooks Glycerin 9 and while they are rad, they were not wide enough either and not quite as comfortable - in my opinion. For a second pair of running shoes, I would order the Brooks Glycerin 9 if they become available in a wide size option. There is nothing worse than when your feet ache because the shoes are too tight and I also experienced shin splints because I ran in the wrong type of shoes for me. I am a marathoner and really stress the importance of finding the right shoe type for your running style and the shape of your feet. So if you supinate and have wide feet (or the beginning of bunions), I highly recommend these shoes.

I have never spent this much money on a pair of shoes but these were so worth every penny. I absolutely love them. Quite possibly the most comfortable pair of shoes I've ever had and I've a ton of compliments on them every time I wear them.

I love these shoes! I am training to walk a marathon and a half for a breast cancer walk. Walked over 26 miles this weekend in them on pavement, dirt/gravel paths, and uneven dirt/rock terrain. They are holding up great. I have had a lot of foot problems, but no pain in these Sauconys! I love the look of them too! I wish that I had bought two pairs of these instead of my back-up pair in a different brand, which causes a sharp pain to shoot up into my arch. These shoes are great if you have narrow heels. My heels do not slide out.

I recently went to Jack Rabbit Sports to get assessed on the right type of running shoes as I was experiencing major foot cramps. After trying on several pair of sneakers that they suggested, I settled on these. They are absolutely the best! I went up half a size to help with when I walk/jog in the park. These are the best sneakers that I have ever purchased.

Run true to size - do not order 1/2 size larger. Found this sneaker to have satisfactory cushioning. However, it just feels like brick on your foot. Not heavy but like you have a big sac on your foot. I didn't like the fit so I'm returning them. I still think these sneaker manufacturers are cheap with cushioning. This is supposed to be the premium plush sneaker and I said the cushioning was only satisfactory. I expect better but it doesn't seem to exist. I guess I shouldn't complain, the Glycerin 9 is actually firm. At least the triumph has cushion. My quest for a quality cushioned sneaker will continues.
