Saucony Progrid Peregrine Review

There is something special about trail running. For me, it is the thought of being able to make my own tracks, the feeling of freedom and letting each stride take me there.

Robert Frost captured trail running best,
“The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.”

Being able to run for a long period of time on trails requires a natural running style, so I was pleased to try out the Saucony ProGrid Peregrine trail running shoe. The flat sole not only looks sweet but it brings your foot closer to the ground to accomplish a natural running style for a longer period of time. The low-profile design also features a memory foam heel pods for customized cushioning. The XT-900 sticky rubber outsole has multi-directional lugs for traction that works great on challenging terrain. After mile 5, I started to notice the lightweight shoe also has a breathable mesh liner. It works great on dry trails but if it’s rainy or damp outside, it lets moisture in.

For an overall look and performance, I’d give this shoe a 4 out of 5. The Saucony ProGrid Peregrine is a great looking low-profile shoe that provides a natural comfortable fit for trail running.

Saucony says:

RUN - Neutral Stability

Trail runners helped pioneer the minimalist movement, so it was only "natural" to introduce the ProGrid Peregrine. Built on the same foot-form as the Kinvara and featuring a 4mm heel drop, the Peregrine is a must-have for any trail running enthusiast. Multi-direction lugs provide a sticky grip, so you can focus and feel your way through any terrain.

• The trail blazing shoe that's a must-have for the outdoor runner
• Minimalist, low profile and incredible responsiveness on uneven surfaces
• Multi-directional lugs and sticky rubber for amazing traction and grip
• Weight: 9.1 oz
