Updates to Saucony Peregrine 8 Ice+
- Along with the completely redesigned upper, the new Saucony Peregrine 8 ICE+ features a new midsole. It utilizes the PWRFOAM, which makes the midsole more responsive. With this update, the shoe now has an additional 2mm stack height.
- Another obvious enhancement is the new upper material which aims to provide a more customized fit. It features a Runshield water-resistant upper that keeps the foot dry even on dry winter running sessions.
Saucony Peregrine 8 Ice+ size and fit
The water-repellent version of the Peregrine 8 fits true to size and has a medium measurement in the heel and midfoot sections. The panel-style midfoot holds the foot securely while running, and the toe box is spacious enough to give medium-footed runners comfortable fit. The shoe is available in medium width for both men’s and women’s versions.
In the outsole is the sturdy Vibram Artic Grip material which is designed to give unmatched grip on icy surfaces. With the help of the Wet Ice Tech, the outsole clings to the ice and prevents the foot from slipping, especially on uphill and downhill runs. It also gives maximum durability on high-contact areas while giving increased flexibility.
The midsole of the Peregrine 8 ICE+ is composed of the notable EVERUN Topsole and PWRFOAM cushioning. The combination of these technologies is meant to give a consistent, smooth, and responsive ride.
The EVERUN Topsole is an innovative midsole technology from Saucony. It extends the entire midsole which gives a springy underfoot cushioning. It also delivers enhanced energy return for a smoother transition and stronger toe-off.
The PWRFOAM, a midsole compound, aims to distribute the pressure evenly in every step for a smoother ride. This midsole foam gives added underfoot comfort while enhancing the overall responsiveness of the shoe.
The upper of the Saucony Peregrine 8 ICE+ features an updated design and material. The Runshield upper offers water-resistant coverage, which allows runners to run confidently even on icy running conditions. It keeps the foot dry while maintaining a breathable environment.
FlexFilm overlays are attached to the upper for a more secure fit. The overlays are made of thin film, which also gives structural durability and added stability while running.
The shoe also features a panel-style midfoot which is specifically designed to hold the foot in place. It secures the foot comfortably while running. It also enhances the overall fit of the shoe.
The Peregrine 8 ICE+ has a padded tongue and collar which delivers added comfort. The collar has a Rundry lining for moisture-free running, and the gusseted tongue prevents stones and other trail debris from entering the shoe.
