SAUCONY PEREGRINE 12: CONCLUSIONS
The first thing we would like to highlight in here is the big reduction of weight, from 310 grams on the Peregrine 11 to 275 grams in this new Peregrine 12. Which shows something, for many obvious, but which is a trend in almost all running/trailrunning shoes at the moment: get a shoe below 300 grams, balanced, stable and with a decent/good durability.
Well, based on thenumbers and what we have seen so far, this Peregrine 12 will fullfil the requirements of any trail runners who wants a shoe with long-lasting cushion, sticky traction and maximum protection for their trail runs. Moreover, will also be good for these who prefer wearing a low drop shoe during their training sessions.
And of course, it will delight all those longtime fans of the Peregrine series who want the same blend of quickness and protection, with new features to improve the experience.
