We took the Saucony Peregrine 13 trail shoes out for a serious test on some trails around the backyard of Brisbane, hitting up hard packed fire trails, technical and rocky single tracks as well as sharp inclines and declines. I'm very happy with what Saucony have delivered here.
It was around 1 year ago I did a review on the Saucony Peregrine 12 trail shoes which only feels like yesterday. You wonder how a shoe as good as the 12’s could improve and I’m pleased to say Saucony has once again delivered. Named after the fastest bird on earth, I’m introducing to you the new Saucony Peregrine 13.
This shoe looks aggressive and is aggressive. The two things that catch my eye are the upper mesh and outsole. The upper has been minimised to reduce weight but has a pliable overlay to protect against the elements of the trail. You immediately want to turn the shoe over and check out the outsole.
It has a redesigned traction-rich PWRTRAC outsole to help you dig in and take off with speed, couple this with the rockplate and you’re good to go on the trails.
Another addition is the extra layer of comfort with a new sockliner made with PWRRUN+ cushioning, giving it a softer feel without a compromise on performance. I can see this shoe creeping into ultra distance territory.
This shoe really has been stripped back to have you flying across the trails with an average mens shoe weight of 275 grams and womens of 230 grams. I’m having a lot of fun in this shoe and really keen to hear how our customers are enjoying it.
We have the Saucony Peregrine 13 available now in Run Vault.
