Comments: I have been wearing these shoes since they 1st came out & love them. I've ran in Brooks, New Balance, Merrell, Nike & none of them stand up to everything like this shoe. Especially on long runs. I was running an extremely hot & humid trail marathon this past august while trying the Nike Wildhorse trail shoe & those suck. They felt like the bottom was coming apart & they do not drain well at all, were killing my feet so I had to take them off. The only thing i had available were my original Peregrine that i retired from running, wear to work & have about450 miles on them & they still kicked butt. Nothing compares.

Comments: Just finished running a Ragnar trail relay in the Saucony Peregrine 4s and overall the shoe is very comfortable even with pulling off multiple runs within a 12 hour period. Shoe fit was spot on for me and I didn't notice/have any hot spots develop during a break in period. It is a relatively flexible shoe but still has plenty of protection for the trails. The lugs look very aggressive but I was surprised that the grip wasn't as good as my Montrail Mountain Masochist IIs; especially on steep descents over hard earth covered with silt sand. I would definitely purchase this shoe again just on the comfort and heel-toe drop characteristics alone.

Comments: I felt like the fit was too small. I have run in the Mirage 3 and currently run in the Mirage 4 and the Peregrine 4 was much more snug in the forefoot than the Mirage 4. Sadly, I had to send the Peregrine's back.

Comments: Ok, here is the scoop. I have run the Peregrine since the first model and I must say this...if you are a serious ultra runner, this shoe is for you. I have run many other shoes (Pearl N1, N2, Solomon Ultra, Hoka, ect) and these are my go to shoes for every long run. Perfect amount of cushion, great grip on all trail types (no shoe is good on wet rock Dave), they drain well, good toe room, the heel to toe is perfect, and the semi firm ride gives good trail feedback.. and the looks are not too bad either. My current shoe has 300 on them and I just threw down a 50 mile race with them....might be time for a new pair! (just don't tell my wife)

Comments: Fit is good. True to size - I wear a 10.5 in the Mirage 3 and Peregrine fits a just a bit roomier. I was wearing Montrail Rogue Racers but was looking for more foot protection but still looking for a lighter weight shoe. I have worn them now for several trail runs and here are my observations. 1. Midsole/rockplate makes the show less flexible right out of the box. They are just now softening up a bit. 2. I feel they have a good bit of protection with an aggressive lug pattern. 3. Unfortunately this lug pattern is HORRIBLE on wet rocks - there is not enough surface contact. I ended up in in a stream twice. I am not family with earlier editions of this shoe but I do enjoy the protection these shoes provide, I would just wear them in dry conditions.
