For those who crave the ultimate in protective cushioning, the Triumph 18 is our most cushioned shoe and has been retooled to give long runs a new faster feel with all the luxurious comfort you desire.
Breathable Mesh Upper
Designed to provide lightweight, breathable support, the Saucony Triumph 18 Running Shoes have been constructed using a engineered mesh upper. The minimal, engineered mesh uppers will encase each foot in breathable comfort. The perforated mesh allows cool air to flow throughout the shoe to remove and uncomfortable heat build-up so you can remain cool, dry and comfortable at all times. The mesh acts as a lightweight second skin that create a perfect microclimate for your feet to thrive in. As well as this, FORMFIT technology surrounds the foot in a made-for-me feel which accommodates the feet giving them a feeling like these shoes were made specifically for you. Completing the upper is a lacing system which locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
Using their brand new innovative PWRRUN+ in the Triumph 18, Saucony has developed a midsole that will give you the next generation of cushioning. The PWRRUN+ midsole is 25% lighter than the previous lightest midsole, which will dramatically lower the weight of the shoe. As well as this, the midsole is three more durable than previous midsoles, which will improve the long-term functionality of the shoe, making it always feel the same mile after mile. The EVA used at the top of the midsole is extremely soft, and all impacts will be absorbed instantly and effectively, delivering an extremely plush ride which will reduce fatigue and make sure that you be protected from injuries. With double the amount of flexibility than previous Saucony midsoles, this will improve the responsiveness of the shoe, giving you an added spring in your step to push you on faster. The high-performing material within the midsole is also three times less heat sensitive than previous midsoles, which will mean that no matter what time of the year or what conditions you are running in, the midsole will always deliver a premium performance. The midsole of the Triumph 18 has been constructed using a new geometry which ensures added comfort and a faster feel.
Durable Rubber Outsole
Developed to be hardwearing and grippy, the newly updated outsole of the Saucony Triumph 18 Running Shoes has been constructed using a durable rubber outsole. This premium outsole offers exceptional traction and durability so you can continue with complete confidence. The rubber is able to form a solid connection with a wide range of different surfaces, which will give you one less thing to worry about. The strong connection with the ground will also provide a firm base for you to push off from, making your gait cycle more efficient. Reinforced in high wear areas the outsole will withstand long lasting wear. Lastly, multi-directional grooves are placed strategically to further secure your feet to the ground, and will also improve efficiency in takeoffs, landings and changes of direction.
In 1898, four young businessmen opened the Saucony Shoe Manufacturing Company in Kutztown, Pennsylvania. By 1910, they were turning out 800 pairs of shoes a day from their two-story brick factory on the Saucony Creek. Throughout the early and mid-1900's, running became the focus of serious athletes and at that time, there weren't any high-performance running shoes. Saucony were determined to make a shoe that could change the way people run. In 1969, Saucony found a new home in Cambridge, Mass and have been loyal Bostonians ever since. Saucony exists for runners as runners inspire them and bring them new ideas. They drive the design and engineering while keeping them competitive. This focus and passion fuels Saucony as they strive to create the best running shoes and apparel on the planet.
