  • 75 / 100 | Harold's Desk

    It's a nicely built shoe with great easy to tie (with gloves on) laces that should last several winters and is a good tool but needs to be used in the right way to get the most out of it.

  • 77 / 100 | The Tech Shop

    I can say it's one of the best winter shoes I've tried so far. My feet stayed warm, dry, and most importantly, because of the Arctic grip and PowerTrac outsole, I had that added confidence running through icy areas.

Updates to Saucony Peregrine 7 ICE+

  • Saucony presents an updated version of the Peregrine 7 that is intended for the winter – the Peregrine 7 ICE+. This running shoe is specially-designed to handle wet, icy surfaces and even deep snow roads. It is ideal for wearers who have a moderate to high arch.
  • The upper is made from a combination of synthetic and fabric that work together to give the shoe water-resistant and moisture-wicking capabilities. A thermoplastic urethane (TPU) exoskeleton offers support and protection for a secure fit.
  • The midsole features Saucony’s EVERUN™ system, which promotes an enhanced energy return. It sits on a PWRTRAC outsole that claims to give excellent traction on a variety of surfaces, as well as resilience to withstand the harshness of cold environments.

Saucony Peregrine 7 ICE+ size and fit

The Saucony Peregrine 7 ICE+ has a standard running shoe length, and most runners will find that it fits true to size. The width profiles available are D – Medium for the men’s version and B – Medium for the women’s version. The shape of the forefoot allows a comfortable fit for wearers with a low to moderate foot volume.

Outsole

The PWRTRAC in the outsole equips the shoe durability and strength to withstand not only tough but also wet and cold terrain. It is comprised of a sticky rubber compound to yield aggressive traction and abrasion resistance.

The high-wear areas of the outsole are covered with Vibram® Arctic Grip, which is an advanced gripping system intended for the chilly weather. With the Arctic Grip, the outsole clings to ice and prevents the foot from slipping. Unlike other shoes for icy surfaces that use metal spikes, Arctic Grip is entirely out of rubber; therefore, it is more durable and more surface-friendly.

Accompanying Arctic Grip is the IceTrek, another type of shoe grip that offers high traction and flexibility at low temperatures.

Midsole

Similar to its base shoe, the Peregrine 7 ICE+ also makes use of the SSL EVA – Saucony SuperLite Ethylene-Vinyl Acetate – as its midsole. This technology delivers a firm cushioning, thus guaranteeing a responsive sole. Compared to traditional EVA, the SSL claims to have a more extended lifespan.

On top of the SSL EVA is the EVERUN construction that ensures an energized ride. Together, these two midsole components implement a shock-absorbing quality, resulting in a bouncy and smooth stride.

Upper

The upper of the Peregrine 7 ICE+ employs FlexShell, which is Saucony’s signature fabric material that has a water-resistant property. FlexShell keeps the foot dry without sacrificing comfort.

Underneath the FlexShell upper is the RunDry, an internal lining made from mesh. This design aids in air circulation, as well as quickly evaporating moisture from the foot. RunDry extends up to the collar area of the shoe for overall coverage.

There is a TPU exoskeleton that gives optimal support and protection. It acts as a supportive framework to keep the foot secure.

The external heel counter enables additional protection through its foot lockdown ability. Meanwhile, the tongue and collar are padded to produce comfort.
