 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Saucony Peregrine 3

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • March 2013

 

The Peregrine 3 delivers a lightweight, low to the ground trail shoe ideal for varied terrain.  Saucony redesigned the Peregrine 3 upper features FlexFilm for a sleek, seamless feel, while the bedrock outsole plate protects the foot from sharp surfaces.

This shoe weighs only 9.9 oz and has a 4mm heel-to-toe drop.   The shoe has good traction making it safer to run on varied terrains.   These provide a minimalist type of trail shoe but feel well cushioned too.

These are for runners eager to run more minimally on the trails, the Peregrine is an ideal stepping stone.  While still a lightweight trainer, it offers a tad more cushioning and outsole protection than many of the contemporary trail shoes.

The Saucony Peregrine 3 combines great performance with rugged durability.   It is designed with a low heel-to-toe offset, in order to keep you quick on your feet, while an aggressively lugged outsole and an underfoot rock plate make sure you're feet are well cushioned and protected in the diverse rocky terrain.   There are  seamless film overlays which protect your feet from blistering while securely holding your feet in place, and underfoot ProGrid cushioning ensures high mileage protection.

These shoes felt good for mid to long trail training runs.   These were a good option for making a translational shoe in moving from a normal trail shoe to a more minimalist trail shoe. Also, I have used them for a few half marathons which the shoe felt light and fast.
