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.
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.
