Saucony Triumph ISO 5 ($160)
The Saucony Triumph ISO 5 is a premium daily neutral trainer featuring a full Everun TPU midsole and an ISOFit upper.
This update ups the comfort and cushion game with 2mm more Everun underfoot, a very soft and roomy new Jacquard mesh ISOFit upper, and a redesigned TriFlex outsole of mostly Crystal Rubber. The last is the new broader forefoot grippier heel flavor first found in the Ride ISO. The result is a softer very forgiving shoe top to bottom with a truly commodious upper and which despite its considerable weight is also easier to transition, even at slow paces, and easier on the legs than its predecessor and other plush heavy weights. The ISO 5 maxes out comfort, and yes weight at well over 11 ounces, but can still move along.
