How well is it made?
Are there any bad Saucony shoes? Having tried many over the years and enjoyed every pair, be it road or trail shoes. The Peregrine 11 are available in three varieties, The 11, GTX and ST. Our 11 tested here is perhaps the great all rounder. The GTX features a Goretex upper and the ST features deeper outsole lugs and a lace debris guard.
The 11 we looked at features 5mm lugs on the outsole. These are aggressively designed and offer very good traction on trail, rocky and mud terrain.
The outsole is Saucony’s PWRTRAC and offers reliable grip which is very evident in the wet. The midsole is PWRRUN featuring a woven carbon-looking rock plate to add extra protection. A well padded tongue and achilles area add comfort and keeps your foot locked in.
The toe box area feels sturdy and tough. This might be a bit thick for really hot days.
The fit feels very secure with little foot movement. The Peregrine 11 is very supportive and keeps the foot secure. The heel tab is a thick elasticated loop that sits flush to the heel area out of the way and won’t snag.
Is it worth your money?
The Saucony Peregrine 11 is another great Saucony shoe. As ever it’s well made, solid and supportive. It has an attractive appearance and delivers on the grip front. Where it might fall down is on front foot breathability as the toe area is so well protected you might get a little warm on really hot days. That issue aside, it’s a great feeling shoe and if you’re in the UK 95% of the time you’ll be grateful of the extra toe protection and additional warmth!
In short, yes, it’s another worthy Saucony trail shoe that should definitely be on your wish list.
