SAUCONY PEREGRINE 13 GTX:
WINTER TRAIL RUNNING SHOE FROM THE PEREGRINE SAGA.
The winter trail running version of the family. The most logical, perhaps, for those who like to run on wet terrain, rainy conditions, cross puddles, cross from snowfield to snowfield and always stay dry.
For them there is the Peregrine 13 GTX, which stands out for having the latest breathable technology, the Goretex Invisible Fit. The membrane is waterproof and windproof, but with this version it is lighter and fits the foot better, so the cover remains flexible and light, unlike other more basic GTXs that add more weight and rigidity.
In addition, it maintains all the benefits of the Saucony Peregrine: PWRRUN midsole and the PWRRUN+ insole to have the best Saucony cushioning. And the PWRTRAC rubber sole and a rock protector to be able to run on all kinds of trails. And don’t forget, like all its sisters, it maintains a 4mm drop.
