I have been running in the Saucony Peregrine trail running shoes since the Peregrine 5s came out. They are hands down, the best balance between ruggedness, traction, durability and weight. With a 4mm drop they have just the right balance between heel and forefoot and the stack height is perfect for keeping the sharpest stones from ruining your run.
I have run these shoes through torrential summer downpours in the deepest mud, over technical mountain trails and through snow and ice (learn the secret of screw shoes). No shoe drains better while protecting your dainty piggies and the traction is tank-like.
If you can afford the latest version, go for it. You won’t be sorry. If you are looking for a discount (I always am) look for older models that are just as great at a significant discount. Click on the shoe below to get started on your search for the perfect model and price.
