Technology

4MM

Saucony 4mm Technology

Shoes with a 4mm heel-to-toe offset deliver a more natural ride, letting your feet and body do more work while relying less on the shoes’ cushioning and stability features.

ALL-TERRAIN

Saucony All-Terrain Technology

High traction outsoles, protective overlays and rugged construction take the performance of our RunAnyWhere line to the next level. This is what happens when real runners make trail shoes.

EVERUN

Saucony EVERUN Technology

A breakthrough in cushioning. Livelier and more responsive, with smoother landings and stronger takeoff.

PWRTRAC

Saucony PWRTRAC Technology

Tacky, durable rubber providing exceptional traction and abrasion resistance.

Cushioning

The underfoot feel and amount of impact protection provided by the compressing materials between the foot and running surface.

Support

The level of pronation control built into the shoe. Pronation is the inward rolling of the ankle through the gait cycle.

Offset

The difference in height between the heel thickness and forefoot thickness of the shoe.

Has gone backwards I've ran in Peregrine 6s for a good few hundred miles of hill running, trail running, occasional hard packed and road. Mix of mud, snow, rocks, ice, roots, single track and double track access routes. Apart from the upper wearing out at the side of the foot/toe joint on both shoes, these shoes were awesome... all I could ever want from a trail/hill shoe for multiple conditions. Natural progression for me was the Peregrine 8. The shoes are very comfy, in a long distance road shoe (thinking Triumph ISO) kind of way. They are more plush than the Peregrine 6 for sure. However, they are also more cumbersome feeling. The thicker padding around the heel, the thicker tongue, the material of the upper. It's like an easy miles road shoe no a off road sole. There are two major issues for me here... the tongue is too short, as are the laces (more about the laces later). When I attempt to lock lace my shoes to give more ankle purchase, the laces want to creep over the top and off the tongue... it's just too short! The laces are also not long enough for proper lock lacing. This is a major thing with trail shoes. Now, onto the running. There's no doubting that these are a very plush feeling and comfortable shoe to run in, on flattish trails. The midsole feels awesome and is very comfortable. Removing the rock plate was a bit of a mistake from Saucony though, despite the thicker tread and more midsole material, these just don't offer the same protection as the Peregrine 6. Roots, rocks and other debris are felt way more than previous. Fine on grass, single track and more hard packed trails, but as a hill running and trail running shoe for the Scottish climate, it's a big step backwards in this regard. Now, back to the laces... last nights run took in all of the conditions mentioned above including snow. Due to the type of lace (soft, and not flat like those on the Peregrine 6) they suck up a lot of water/moisture. By the time I got home after a 10 mile hill run, I couldn't actually get one of my shoes off as those soft squidgy laces had soaked up a lot of moisture that had then frozen into a solid block of material... only way to get it undone was to get the hair dryer out!!! This may not have been a problem if the lace was longer though as there was virtually no lace left to pull on to undo. So, to sum it up. Nice comfortable shoe, still awesome grip from that sole design, but everything else is not as good as the Peregrine 6... a bit of a disappointment. A longer tongue and proper off road laces would fix many of the issues.

As good as it gets! Ive not run in Peregrines before so cannot compare to previous models but these were a joy to run in today. Ordered yesterday and promptly arrived this morning (10/10 for promt service!) and so i took them out for a ten miler round the cotswold hils. Here are my findings. 1.) Wide toe box - I have really wide feet and so have always struggled to get decent fitting shoes. These were snug but comfy on me and should be fine for most people. I suffered no discomfort over 10 miles or any rubbing around the little toe. Compared to my previous inov8 roclites these were positively roomy. 2.) Traction - Brilliant! Given all the melted snow we have just had and the muddy conditions these gave positive grip through the slush, over icy tarmac and up hill through open fields and on muddy single track. Up hill, down hill and sharp turns all done with confidence. 3.) No Rock Plate - No problem. The run I've just done was over rocky single track and forest trails with roots. The shoe was secure and I felt no sharp pain from landing on rocks. Yes you can feel them obviously but no discomfort occurred from repetitive bashings! 4.) Ride - Fast! Because of the grip and lightweight build of the shoe i was able to drop the hammer and really go for it in confidence over quite challenging terrain. The shoes are very flexible swell and really allow for quick running. The parts of my route that were on tarmac were equally comfortable and I could have been mistaken for wearing my Freedom ISOs Overall a really great experience for my first 10 miler in Peregrines and I would recommend to anyone. Whilst not as stiff as Roclites or other Inov8's they are infinitely wider than my salomon sense Pro's and are great for typical English countryside trail running. Comfortable, fast and grippy. Winner!
