Review: Saucony Peregrine 10

This was my first entry point into the well established Peregrine series from Saucony, so this review will focus on the overall experience as opposed to incremental updates.

Firstly, a little about myself and running style. I have been running now for 6 years and have since completed countless half marathons, a full marathon with others planned, as well as technical runs such as Mersea Round the Island - a 13 mile mixed terrain event including many miles along the beachfront. My typical weekly schedule involves 70% road, and 30% trail running clocking in around 40km each week. I tend to use stability shoes for road running, and neutral for trail.

The Peregrines 10 are lightweight trail shoe with a solid sole known as PWR Track, with large, deep lugs. My initial concern was that the sole was too solid - but as you will discover, this concern quickly went away.

In practice these are a very efficient trail shoe. I have been testing this on numerous mixed terrain runs over the past few weeks and my experiences have been mostly excellent. I chose courses that took included rocky paths, open fields, woodland and open field. The first thing that struck me was the level of grip they offer - which gives a certain level of confidence most noticeably when approaching muddy incline - it’s worth noting that I tested these shoes during a very wet December.

The lightweight upper offers excellent waterproofing performance, especially when compared to my existing trail shoes which allowed water to permeate from the toe box upwards. Despite the lightweight upper The Peregrines 10’s do offer solid toe protection.

I found the comfort levels to be just right. Some trail shoes I find to be too restrictive, as if you have to force the shoe to bend when pushing forward but these get the balance just right. Again, the lightweight upper play a part here. My only grip was when running on road. I found that the deep lugs added to perceived exertion - but as these are billed as primarily a trail shoe that would be an unfair complaint.

These are now my go-to trail shoes. The grip and waterproofing beat anything I have tried before, and the hill performance outstanding.

Their range of performance eyewear is made using bio plastic derived from the Castor Bean. The Castor plant is extremely hardy and grows where normal food crops normally perish. This process draws in atmospheric carbon and locks it away in the final product, rather than pulling up traditional oils from underground to make plastics with.
