Rated 5 out of 5Â by Beth Great Trail Running Shoe
Bought this shoe to run the toughmudder with. I bought it a week before the event. I went with saucony because I wear this brand in a regular street running shoe. I figured switching to a trail shoe and staying with Saucony made sense. Boy am I glad I did. Not only were my feet comfortable, but the 11 miles of dirt trails with steep hills, was accomplished with much more ease. The shoe gripped the dirt. As others slid and stuggled, my shoes protected me and my body the whole way. I will wear them any time I hit the dirt!

Rated 3 out of 5Â by Margarita96 Too Narrow
I've been running in Vibram Bikilas for years now and walking around in Merrell Pace Gloves, so I think my foot has actually spread. I'm just too used to having a good sized toe box and no seams to mess with. Sadly, Saucony's Peregrine does not fit that bill. The toe box is too narrow across the sole of my foot, and the top of the toe box comes down and pinches. Plus, I can feel that front seam. I appreciate aesthetics, but I'd love to see someone make a sock-like upper, no seams, maybe even velcro closures and get that toe box so that my foot can flex like it should.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by wrh Comfy and reliable shoe for all terrain
I have been wearing the Peregrine since version 1 and, for me, they keep getting better with each version. I didn't think the 3 could top the 2, but I was wrong! The 1 and 2 were similar, although Saucony improved the upper of the 2, making it much more durable. Then along comes the 3, a very different shoe from the 2. I thought I wouldn't like running in them when I first put them on; they felt a bit longer than the 2 (in the same size). After my first run, I was very happy. I think this version has a wee bit more cushion overall and I had zero "break in". I haven't had any durability problems like some of the other reviewers; I got about the same mileage out of each pair as I expected. I think they do well in any dry terrain (including very rocky, technical trails) and while they work in mud, it's not the shoe's best surface. I prefer the more subdued colors but will wear anything if it works for me (and two pairs of the watermelon-colored version are therefore on my shelf). My complaints are the same as I have with every shoe and really have to do with my weird left foot. Still, I ended up going through 4 pairs this year. I am hoping Saucony doesn't change the 4 too much!
