NEW! Saucony Omni 15 vs. Saucony Triumph ISO 3

The Saucony Omni 15 and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 fall in two different categories of running shoes, with the Saucony Omni 15 being a stability running shoe and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 a neutral cushioning running shoe.

ADVERTISEMENTS

Both the Saucony Omni 15 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 are running shoes that can serve bigger runners.

Bigger runners typically require a good amount of support in the upper and both running shoes can deliver that.

The Saucony Triumph ISO 2 The preceding link takes you to Amazon.com comes with broad overlays wrapping the midfoot in the form of ISOFIT overlays.

The Saucony Omni 15 provides a similar amount of support around the midfoot through the use of Sauc-Fit.

And unlike the Saucony Triumph ISO 2, the overlays on the Saucony Omni 15 connect the midfoot to the heel to provide a good amount of support from midfoot to heel.

Instead of overlays around the heel, the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 has a Support Frame that cups the heel to increase the amount of support.

The Saucony Omni 15 also comes with a Support Frame, but this only comes in the form of low bars on the lateral and medial sides of the heel.

Both the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 and the Saucony Omni 15 provide comfort in the forefoot by implementing very light no-sew overlays on the toe box.

While the Saucony Omni 15 is in the business of providing support and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 in the business of providing cushioning, the Saucony Omni 15 can still compete with the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 in the cushioning department.

According to running shoe lab tests, the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 provides a super soft ride to both men and women, but the Saucony Omni 15 does not lie far behind.

The difference in amount of forefoot cushioning is negligible in the two running shoes, with both having a very cushy forefoot.

Small differences can be seen in the amount of heel cushioning, but the differences are so small that they may be not noticeable to runners.

Both running shoes can be said to have a cushy heel, with the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 lying closer to the max than the Saucony Omni 15.

The biggest difference between the midsoles of the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 and the Saucony Omni 15 can be found on the medial side, where the Saucony Omni 15 comes with a large post and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 does not.

As mentioned earlier, the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 is for neutral runners, so runners who do not need any kind of corrections.

The Saucony Omni 15, on the other hand, provides pronation control to overpronators through the use of a medial post.

This medial post is long and runs high, so it is not surprising that running shoe lab tests rate the Saucony Omni 15 as providing almost a maximum amount of stability.

The amount of stability provided by the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 is above average, probably due to the fact that it provides a good amount of ground contact, which also somewhat increases the stability of a running shoe.

The rubber outsoles of the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 and the Saucony Omni 15 look quite similar in the forefoot as far as the pattern goes.

Their outsoles are well separated for shock absorption and contiguous enough to provide smooth transitions from heel-strike to toe-off.

However, running shoe lab tests rate both running shoes as being a bit stiff. The Saucony Omni 15 provides just a small bit more flexibility than the Saucony Triumph ISO 2, but can still be seen as stiff for both men and women. Such stiffness can be handled by bigger and heavier runners.

The women's version of the Saucony Omni 15 weighs approximately 9.0 oz (255 grams), and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 for women weighs 8.6 oz (244 grams).

The men's versions of the running shoes weigh 10.6 oz (301 grams) and 10.4 oz (295 grams), respectively, with the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 being the lightest.

Making a decision between the Saucony Omni 15 and the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 should be quite easy. Both running shoes offer a soft and smooth ride, so you cannot go wrong.

The main thing is knowing what kind of runner you are: If you are a neutral runner, the Saucony Triumph ISO 2 would be the one to look into, and if you are an overpronator, the Saucony Omni 15 can give you lots of support.

Note: The weight of a running shoe depends on the size of the running shoe, so any weights mentioned in this review may differ from the weight of the running shoe you choose to wear. Running shoes of the same size were compared for this review.
