If you pay attention to my Instagram at all, then you’ve probably noticed some obnoxiously bright coral shoes. These beauties are one of my favorite pairs of running sneaks, and today I’m popping in to tell you all about them! Any by running sneaks, I mean, walk-or-jog-with-the-baby-or-maybe-go-to-the-gym-for-a-hot-second-running-sneaks.
As a thank you for some blog work I did over the winter, I was able to pick out a pair of shoes of my choice. I decided to stick with a pair that would be great for both running, casual workouts, and hauling Adeline around town – the Saucony Triumph ISO 2.
This is not my first rodeo with the Saucony Triumph ISO. This is the second version they have come out with, and after loving my first pair so much, I knew I’d probably love these just as much. Remember when I worked with Finish Line to share a few Saucony items a couple years ago? You can view that post HERE.
The Triumph ISO 2 is a neutral shoe, meaning it’s meant for runners who don’t necessarily over-pronate or need extra stability. I’m a “neutral” runner, and prefer the fit of neutral shoes.
The Triumph ISO 2 comes loaded with technology, which is why the fit and feel of the shoe is so amazing. It’s by far one of my favorite running shoe simply because of how lightweight and comfortable it is. I’m not a huge fan of running shoes that feel bulky or loaded down with too many bells and whistles, so I feel like this one hits the sweet spot.
To break it down, the cushioning is constructed with EVERUN, which is a responsive foam cushioning material in the topsole and heel. This cushioning is incredible, and truth be told I wear these shoes barefoot more often than not. Is that gross? Maybe, but they’re so dang breathable that I totally don’t care! The outer sleeve of the shoe is made with ISOFIT which is a stretchable air mesh that practically molds to your foot and holds it comfortably in place. The sole of the shoe is made with iBR+, or Injection Blown Rubber which is 33% lighter and provides more cushioning than standard rubber soles. Basically, the Triumph ISO 2 has great technology without weighing down the shoe or “overdoing” it.
I have been wearing these most days when I take Adeline for a walk/jog, or when I go to the gym on my lunch break. So far, I’m still as impressed with them as I am the first model. Although, maybe it’s because my first pair is more worn it, but I swear it feels like my first pair is a tad bit lighter. I also would probably not run long distances in these either, but that’s just me. I think they would be perfect for shorter, faster races.
*I was not asked to review this shoe, nor was I compensated to do so.
Do you wear Saucony? What’s your current favorite running shoe? Do you have a “running shoe” you like to wear casually?
