Now that winter is here, as well as switching out your shorts for thermal leggings, road runners should consider also switching to a trail shoe. The Saucony Peregrine ISO offers great winter traction and durability for roads and trails alike. You might call it a winter tire for your feet.

Whether running through snowy trails or doing intervals on slick roads, the traction offered by the Peregrine gives you a feeling of safety and peace of mind. City runners would do well to have a trail shoe for winter use, and the Peregrine is ideal.  

Now incorporating ISOFIT construction in the upper, which adapts to your foot, the Saucony Peregrine ISO gives you the same comfort as the Saucony Guide, Freedom and Ride ISO, minimizing hot spots and blisters.

Combining ISOFIT technology with Saucony’s EVERUN and PWRFOAM materials in the topsole and midsole, the Peregrine is light as well as comfortably snug. Weighing only 85 g more than Saucony’s racing flat, the Kinvara 9, the Peregrine’s aggressive outsole lugs and added structure weigh it down much less than you would expect. Whether it was during hill repeats on a muddy gravel path or taking a corner a bit tighter than usual, our tester felt the powerful grippiness of of the Peregrine’s highly durable, 78-lug PWRTrac outsole.

Like most trail shoes however, the Peregrine is not impermeable to weather, so it’s a good idea to have an extra pair of dry socks handy for after your run.

The Saucony Peregrine ISO is available on January 1, 2019.
