I ran in the new Saucony Peregrine trail shoe today. All I can say is ………..awesome! The Peregrine is lightweight and flexible plus it has a rock shield in the forefoot. I used to be an Exodus fan but I am switching over to the Peregrine. Our trail started out rocky but the Peregrine allowed me to skim right over them. No barefoot running here! I like shoes. I don’t like having to worry where my feet will land or having to pick my way through a dry river bed.

Recently, we got in the new Saucony Guide 4 stability shoe. Now, I am not in the stability category since I am neutral runner with high, rigid arches, but I have to admit this shoe feels good. Honestly, I am not really a Saucony fan because I think they feel too stiff, but the Guide […]
