The Peregrine 12 is the newest version of Saucony’s trail running shoe. These shoes are designed to help you run your fastest on trails. The newest version has added a new protective rock plate, a sockliner, and a redesigned upper and outsole.
The Peregrine 12 has a new PWRTRAC outsole with 5 millimeter lugs for traction. Saucony has added a new protective rock plate, which they claim creates a smoother and more flexible shoe that sheds moisture easier. The shoe still features Saucony’s PWRRUN cushioning, but they have added a PWRRUN+ sockliner for additional comfort. The new upper has been minimized to make the shoe lighter and has added overlays to protect against trail elements. The shoe is also gaiter compatible for added protection.
The Peregrine 12 has mixed reviews. Positive reviews found it very lightweight and loved the traction. They thought it was the best Peregrine yet. Negative reviews complained that the shoe was too narrow and uncomfortable. They thought the shoe felt stiffer and had less padding. They also complained about the durability of the shoe.
