The Saucony Triumph 18 is a top of the range cushioning shoe with fantastic never ending plush comfort while retaining a fantastic amount of energy return. The 18 has a more simple upper to improve fit and comfort, and the midsole has a smoother heel to toe transition. The 18 is a very good improvement on the already good Triumph 17.
The Saucony Triumph 18 is everything you need for churning out the long miles at an average pace. The ultra plush upper and responsive midsole make this a luxury product that does not feel like a clunky brick on the foot. The outsole is very hard wearing and midsole is max-cushion territory ensuring runs even over 30 were easy to handle.
Replacing the Triumph 17 after only 6 months on the market it a strange decision but Saucony are overhauling and have improved their whole range at a rapid pace, so to keep up with the competiton the Triumph 18 has a brand new midsole and a leaner upper that has been on a bit of a diet for 6 months!
The new midsole is fatter and more plush but the upper is way more deconsturcted that previous version to balance out the weight gain. This high mileage training shoe is build for long lasting comfort and durabilty and delivers a package well worth the asking price.
Big, soft and plenty of energy return packed up in a much more balanced and responsive way that something like the new Adidas Ultraboost 21. The PWRRUN + midsole is superb, and the shape is well balanced from heel to toe. The toe off feels snappy when you pick up the pace, which isnt the main reason to buy this shoe, but the balance of both cushioning and energy return is brilliant.
A thick soft tongue that oozes luxury as you slip on the shoe sets the tone for the rest of the upper. The jaquard mesh is covered in a seamless print that creates a great looking product but delivers support where needed without the need for any intusive overlays. The upper is reasonably breathable but did get hotter on warmer days, and the stiff and solid heel counter locked the foot in place and lockdown was greatly improved over the 17.
The upper looks and feels premium from every angle and there are some nice badging details on the heel.
Built to last, without being overly heavy or restrictive. A full coverage of hardwearing rubber, cored out in all the right places to allow flexibility but easily able to deliver enough durability for a high mileage training shoes good for 100's of miles of enjoyable running. There is no compormise on durability over weight which is refeshing for a modern running shoe.
The balance of incredible cushioning, delivered in a responsive way, makes the Triumph 18 a stand out running shoe on the market for anyone looking for a brilliant ride that eats up miles with ease but still has enought snap in there to bring a big smile to your face.
