Back in August at a trade show, Sarah and I got to try on a pair of the yet-to-debut Saucony Triumph ISO, a. After a long day of walking to and standing at booths, my feet felt like they landed smack dab in the middle of the best pillow ever. Truly, the Triumphs, which fit like a sock and feel like a million bucks, make you say, "Whoa."
We sat down, shoes still on, and went through the rest of the Saucony gear, but all I could think was, "I want these shoes. I need these shoes. I wonder if they'll notice if I walk away in these shoes."
Alas, we had to give them back, but I thought about the Triumphs ISOs often in September and October, especially when things started to go south with my foot. I wanted cush, pillowy protection under my zinging nerves.
Towards the end of October, Sarah and I were lucky enough to receive a pair. I immediately put the left one on, and once I got out of my (decidedly non-triumphant) boot, I've been wearing them pretty much non-stop (with my new orthotics, natch).
Don't believe me? Here's a little fashion show of all the ways I've sported my Triumphs...

Can be big (a PR!) or little (I ran on a Wednesday when I didn't want to!): Anything works.
As you ponder your answer to leave in the comments below, I'll leave you with my last, most triumphant look.
