Worst Running Shoe I've Ever Purchased.
on August 7, 2012
I have had 7 pairs of Saucony Triumphs over the years and typically they have always performed very well. This pair of Triumph 9s was a HUGE expection to that. I purchased the shoes back in June of this year and put 187 miles on them as of last Saturday. My shins have been sore the last few weeks after my runs, but I didn't think much of it since my shoes were fairly new. However, while sitting at a car wash this weekend, I decided to inspect the soles a little more closely and discovered that the tread on both shoes was COMPLETELY worn to the sole of the shoe. I was shocked. I have had the shoes less than 2 months and put almost 200 less miles on this pair than past pairs of Triumphs. I was told they re-designed this version to make it lighter, but it makes me think that maybe they skimped elsewhere on the quality. I am extremely disappointed with Saucony and the Triumph 9s. I will probably not purchase another pair of Saucony's after this experience.
