Saucony Peregrine 11 review: a beast of a trail running shoe

The Peregrine 11s take everything Saucony has learnt from its road-running exploits and bolts on bespoke trail running touches. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Saucony delivers what it refers to as a FormFit upper, which is essentially a snug fitting body that keeps the foot locked into place. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
A PWRTRAC sole features rows of aggressive lugs that are built to grip on to anything underfoot, while their tough rubber construction means they last. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
Both the tongue and the upper of this shoe are heavily padded, which is a welcome addition given the punishment the feet take when scrambling over rocky earth. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
A chunky heel height of 27mm allows plenty of space for additional cushioning, which does a great job of shock absorbing. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
The additional weight and the weather resistant upper means they aren’t the most breathable and when paired with some thick running socks, things get hot. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
We very quickly fell in love with Saucony Peregrine 11, simply because they shroud the foot in such a way to promote plenty of confidence on the trails. (image credit: The Gear Loop)
