Saucony Triumph ISO 5 Review
For all you Saucony Triumph ISO lovers, you should be excited with the latest version of the Saucony Triumph running shoe. The updated heel, increased cushioning, and a updated upper design.
This shoe has continued to be a favorite for many runners and I’m confident that those runners will like the Triumph ISO 5.
At the time of this review, the Triumph ISO 5 has 2 different color combinations, both of which I liked. I would also expect to see a version made that will be sold at the New York Marathon expo.
Below are pictures of the Triumph ISO 5 shoes that were worn for this review.
Saucony Triumph ISO 5 Initial Thoughts
I have been a big fan of the Triumph ISO line since it was first released in 2015 so I had a feeling I would like the updated ISO 5 shoe. Having read about the updates to the upper, heel, and improved sole I figured I would really like the updates.
The one thing that I noticed right away was that the heel and cushion was one of the best I have felt in the past few shoe reviews. It’s incredible to see how this shoe has improved since the last time I wore these.
The redesigned upper and color of the shoe looked great. While there are only 2 color options to choose from, I was happy with the color combination worn for this review.
About the Saucony Triumph ISO 5
The Saucony Triumph ISO 5 is the fifth version of the Triumph ISO running shoe. The shoe continues to have the Everun sole and ISOFit technology, which guarantees comfort and support.
As mentioned earlier the enhanced cushion in this sole is something that all runners will appreciate, especially during those longer runs.
The new Triumph ISO 5 sole is tackier and should enhance traction in most conditions. I wore these shoes in dry conditions so I didn’t get a chance to see if traction was any better in wet

Saucony Triumph ISO 5 Sole
The updated Triumph ISO 5 sole has some added topsole underneath the footbed, adding some additional support and cushion. This includes 3mm of EVERUN, which is more than some of the previous versions.
The Triumph ISO 5 sole is now thinner and has a crystal rubber compound, which should increase durability and tackier than its predecessor. One of the cons I mentioned about earlier versions of this shoe was the durability of the sole. Hoping this version improves upon that.
Below are a few pictures of the shoe of the Triumph ISO 5.
Saucony Triumph ISO 5 Upper
One of my favorite things about Saucony shoes is the ISOFit and EVERUN soles. I am excited to say that the Triump ISO 5 ISOFIT construction was upgraded with this version to provide increased comfort and support.
In the past, I have struggled with the forefoot width of so many running shoes. When I have ordered a 1/2 size up with Saucony shoes, they have felt great and always provided plenty of room for my feet.
The upper of the Triumph has an updated breathable mesh upper that will improve breathability and keep your feet cool. You can see the mesh upper in the pictures below.
