Saucony Triumph 19 Performance Review » Believe in the Run
Saucony Triumph 19 Conclusion. ROBBE: Overall, this is a really solid shoe, especially if you’ve run in past versions in the Triumph and liked them (or conversely, found them to be lacking). It’s not going to blow your mind, but it will get you a ton of miles in comfort

Saucony Triumph 19
Marathon shoe for a 8’48” min/mile 5’25” min/km pace
Honestly at this pace, I'd just wear a well cushioned daily trainer rather than a plated racing shoe.

The toe box is wide, sure, but the middle part is very narrow. Still somehow, the shoe still had a very loose feeling on my feet and it sometimes felt like the whole shoe could rotate on my foot (if that makes sense).

They are nice shoes, but size is smaller than the usual
I bought the 8.5 which is the size I used to buy. When I first tried on, I felt a little bit tight, thought I will get used to it. Everything went well during a 5 miles running, shoes work perfectly.

Fans of Early Saucony Kinvaras Will Dig Its 12th Version
I gave the 12 an overall rating of ‘7 out of 7’ because it is everything that I look for in a shoe. It continues to be my lightweight and responsive go-to and I feel like I can put a ton of miles on a pair and they will still feel like they do in the beginning. (That said, I’m aware that my smaller body frame and running mechanics make it a little easier for the shoes to endure my ride
