Saucony Women's Triumph 19 Running Shoe, Medium
About this deal
Many fans of the Triumph 18 may have noticed that the platform of the Triumph is nearly identical. The T19 midsole has a generous amount of PWRRUN+ foam that is capped off with, to the best of my knowledge, a thin layer of Everun. Despite the trend in running shoes to completely scrap a shoe after each iteration to try something new Saucony has leaned into the if it ain’t broke… approach.

The Velocity is clearly biased towards the more dynamic side of the spectrum and is lighter by 1 oz, but I find that its heel EVA layer kind of mitigates the otherwise fantastic Nitro foam. Jeff: I know we’ve said it a few times in the last six months, but this year’s shoe is virtually identical to last year’s shoe under foot. Busting out the calipers, I can’t find a difference in proportions anywhere, and it’s easy to see that they are incredibly similar.

Overall: B+ (A solid option for the premium daily trainer in the neutral category. Some stability and transition elements could be refined but overall a good option out there.)
The update to the upper was needed. Not only did it help the shoe drop a considerable amount of weight, but it’s also made the shoe more breathable.
