Peregrine ISO

  • Upper gives you a virtual custom fit
  • Deep lugs provide fantastic traction on everything

Known for its deep lugs and stellar traction, the Peregrine has long been a favorite among our test team. Mud, snow, ice, and slippery rocks are no match for the shoe’s burly outsole. This iteration of the shoe adds Saucony’s ISOFit upper, which straps down tight to the foot via wings connected to the laces. The midsole strikes a nice balance between soft cushion and connection to the trail.
