Saucony Triumph 10 Sneak Peek

Saucony Triumph 10 Women's Running Shoe

Saucony Triumph 10 Men's Running Shoe

Saucony made some big changes when they introduced the Triumph 9, and the Triumph 10 is more of an evolution than a groundbreaking new model. It stays plenty light for the features it offers, and retains the 8mm offset introduced on the Triumph 9. PowerGrid cushioning also remains for maximum shock absorption.

Launch Date
November 2012


Saucony Triumph 10 Men's Running Shoe

What to Watch For

  • New Upper: Supportive underlays sit below wide-gauge open mesh. (The overlays are most clearly visible on the Men’s White/Green model.)
  • More Dynamic Platform: The redesigned crash pad features three decoupled pods for a smoother landing, while a fifth flex groove has been added to the forefoot for better responsiveness at toe-off.

    The Triumph 9 had a too-big fit. Have they tightened it up any?

  • Matt

    Thanks for the question, Mark. We didn’t hear about changes to the fit of the upper as part of the redesign. But we won’t know for sure until we can do a side-by-side comparison.

  • Nate

    I’m pleased to see they’re doing some work to make the 10 more flexible. That was my only dislike on the 9 when they switched to the new powergrid – plenty of protection but not as flexible as progrid. Should be interesting to try out.

  • Hal

    This looks like it could be a nice update, but I’m wondering if they adjusted the “Sauc-Fit.” Any word on that? As it is in the 9, I got blisters on both arches any time I ran more than 3 miles or so. Thanks.

  • Matt

    Thanks for the question, Hal. The Triumph 10 will continue to have Sauc-Fit, and the information we have is that the design is largely unchanged in the update.

  • Hal

    Thanks, Matt, for the quick response. That’s too bad, but I’m interested enough to check out the shoe when it’s available.

    According to saucony sweden, the heel cup should have the same approach as triumph 7, as many runners have problems with the hard heel cup.

  • Mel

    I ran in the Triumph 8 and now the 9. Overall I like the 9 better with one exception: the balls of my feet are fairly wide, and my left one actually hangs over just a tad and i repeatedly get a blister there. The 8s have a bit of the foam sole that extends upward that prevets that issue, while the 9s, the sole cuts inward, without that little extra bit. Does the 10’s inner forefoot sole, around where the big toe joint would be, more closely resemble the 8s or the 9s in that regard?

    I know this is unnecessarily complicated but it will be the difference between sticking with the shoe or jumping ship.

  • Alice

    Thank you for your question, Mel. We are expecting the Triumph 10 to be more similar to the 9 than the 8. If you are experiencing blistering because the ball of your foot extends past the footbed of the shoe, then you might want to try the shoe in a larger width. The Triumph 10 will be offered in widths.

  • Mel

    Thank you for your reply. I have tried wide shoes. Unfortunately, I have a narrow heel and they slide out of the shoes in the back and cause blistering that way. I think I need duck-foot shaped shoes :(

  • Alice

    I can relate, Mel! I also have the “pizza slice foot” (wide forefoot/narrow heel), as my RW co-workers call it. You might try the New Balance 1080 v2, which has a similar heel cup to the Saucony Triumph 9, but a slightly wider forefoot. Check it out here:

    You can also try using the ‘Runner’s Loop’ lacing technique to secure the heel of your shoe, demonstrated on our video here:

  • Aric

    The nb 1080 has a different last than saucony so hard to say that’s the answer. Nb1080 tends to supinate many high arched runners. Alice, have you tried Asics cumulus. You honestly need to visit your best local running shop and have them do a proper gait cycle analysis without shoes and then try you out with various models to find the right one.mbest of luck to you.

  • Alice

    Thank you for your input, Aric. If a customer would like to have their gait analyzed, they are also welcome to do an online gait analysis as well. Watch the video to learn how on our website here:
