Saucony Peregrine 4 Review
-The incredible stability of the midsole makes it great for hard terrain conditions. Peregrine 4’s outstanding tread lets the user easily run on wet, dry, muddy terrains. Finally, the durable outsole and upper protects the user from debris and rocks.
-Some users complain that the stack height is too high, and it makes the shoe slippery on steep terrain. The Peregrine 4 lacks flexibility, proving it hard for steep trail runs. This pair of running shoes is too heavy for its category, and it is really slow for race runs.
Saucony has been loved by athletes for its durable and stable trail shoes, but runners often complain about the cramp toe box design. Hopefully, Peregrine 4 might change these runners experience. This Saucony Peregrine 4 review points the aesthetics, pros, and cons of the running shoes.
The Upper: The heavy-duty upper, at first glance, looks rough and uncomfortable. However, Saucony incorporated seven of their prime technologies in the Peregrine 4’s upper, thus maintaining their reputation for crafting high performance shoes, without sacrificing its comfort. The Gusset Tongue protects the running shoes from debris during runs, without sacrificing breathability. Furthermore, the Molded Toe Cap covers the toes from debris. The toe box has more space than the previous Peregrine models. To ensure that the foot fits perfectly, Saucony embedded thin films they call Flex Film Overlays to the upper. Additionally, a heel counter is placed to make sure that the entire foot is secured. Ultimately, a premium sock liner and the HydraMax Collar lining are placed for excellent breathability, and to keep away unwanted moisture from the foot.
Midsole: Apart from the durable upper, Peregrine 4 offers a powerful midsole for extreme trail runners. The midsole is made of durable SSL EVA for excellent responsiveness and energy return. Moreover, the HeelPower Grid helps provide the midsole a responsive ride for users.
Outsole: Saucony created an incredible outsole, and it made Peregrine 4 a powerful pair of trail shoes. The tread is made of high traction rubbers which optimize traction and grip for any terrain. An external bedrock outsole, which is embedded in between the outsole and midsole, protects the runner’s mid foot from sharp rocks. Additionally, the Nylon fiber mesh rock plate provides flexible protection from various trail hazards.
The Peregrine 4 is definitely an excellent pair of running shoes, but everything has a weak spot – including the Peregrine 4. This part of the Saucony Peregrine 4 review points out the pros and cons of the running shoes
