Good Running Shoe for Supinators: Consider Saucony Triumph 8



Here is a view of the Saucony Triumph 8 from the side. The shoe is a neutral shoe, which for supinators can be too soft and unstable, but this one seems to work well. As the video says it has some good qualities that make it stable. One of my patients EB brought this shoe to my attention. It works very well for her and she is a significant supinator.

Here is EB in the Saucony Triumph 8 left shoe from the back view. You can see how vertical it holds her foot, although she has an insert to stop some of her supination.

     Running shoe stores can tend to use to many generalizations and one of them which has always bothered me is that supinators need neutral cushioned shoes. Many supinators, with orthotic devices to correct some or all of that supination, due the best in stability shoes. I am always fighting these neutral shoes when trying to stablize an unstable foot. So, I hope this Saucony Triumph 8 stands the test of time.
