  • 87 / 100 by Fleet Feet Syracuse • Fleet Feet Syracuse • Level 1 expert

    They have so much traction with these... I was surprised.

  • 85 / 100 by Red Fox Outfitters • Nathan • Level 1 expert

    Overall, it has a stunning grip. It really works wonderfully. The only problem, though, is that if you're not putting your weight on this grip here and you're putting it in the center piece, you're not gonna have a whole lot of traction there. So, you still have to be careful if you're gonna be on that ice.

    As a roadrunner, I haven’t taken these on the trails yet, but thought I would still point it out. Also, don’t really notice it as I find these shoes quite comfortable and flexible.

  • 85 / 100 by Get Out There Magazine • Chris • Level 1 expert

    Out on the trails and snowy or icy roads, this shoe performs really well.

  • 84 / 100 by OCRAddict • Joe Difiglia • Level 1 expert

    The form, fit, and function of the shoe are excellent as well as the build quality. If you are the market for some winter running, look no further, the Peregrine ICE+ is an excellent choice.

  • 60 / 100 by The Runner's Plate • Michelle • Level 1 expert

    The bottom of the shoes have the Vibram Arctic Grip that is supposed to provide traction on slick surfaces, but they didn’t perform the way I thought they would. I did not feel they provided any traction while running on icy or slippery surfaces. I found myself slipping just as much as I would have wearing my regular road running shoes!

Updates to Saucony Peregrine Ice+

  • The Saucony Peregrine Ice+ is a trail running shoe that’s optimized for icy surfaces. It features some technologies that are very helpful when it comes to tackling the unpredictability of cold and damp surfaces. Structurally, it bears a resemblance to the standard Peregrine series of shoes, especially the more recent ones. It uses blue hues as the colorway of its façade and external tread.
  • The upper unit utilizes water-resistant fabrics in order to ward off splashes and water absorption. Most of the overlays are thin and fused onto the main cover system, but some stitched overlays are used, as well, particularly in the heel and forefoot areas. The RUNDRY Collar Lining wicks off moisture, thus maintaining a dry interior environment for the foot.
  • The mid-sole unit of the Saucony Peregrine Ice+ has the full-length SSL EVA, which is a premium foam compound that’s lightweight, responsive and long-lasting. An EVERUN Heel Insert provides additional cushioning for the rear of the foot, and it’s helpful when it comes to receiving impact during the landing phase. Protective layers have been placed between the mid-sole and the outsole. They shield the foot from rocks and jagged surfaces.
  • Saucony has made the outsole unit in partnership with Vibram. In this model, they have utilized the Arctic Grip, which is a rubber compound that’s able to hold onto slippery surfaces with ease. An aggressive outsole design called the IceTrek ensures traction and flexibility, even on slippery surfaces.

Saucony Peregrine Ice+ size and fit

The Saucony Peregrine Ice+ has a standard running shoe length. It comes in sizes that adhere to the regular preferences of most runners. The width that is available for the men and women’s versions is medium. It accommodates those who do not have wide feet. The semi-curved shape of this product mimics the natural shape of the human foot.


Outsole

The outsole unit of the Saucony Peregrine Ice+ features Vibram’s Arctic Grip, which is a high-quality rubber compound that’s able to cling onto many types of surfaces, particularly slippery ones. It ensures confidence and stability over icy paths.

The IceTrek outsole construction has an aggressive, multi-lugged design. The outsole clings onto the ice with ease, but it doesn’t sacrifice the flexibility of the foot.


Midsole

The SSL EVA or the Saucony SuperLite Ethylene vinyl acetate is the main mid-sole material used in the Saucony Peregrine Ice+. It’s a lightweight material that offers comfortable cushioning and responsive takeoffs. It’s also long-lasting.

The heel area of the platform has an EVERUN Insert. This material provides shock attenuation during the landing phase, as well as energy return for more efficient strides.

Layered between the mid-sole platform and the outsole, right in the mid-foot section, is the External Bedrock Outsole or EBO. It’s a protective measure that prevents rocks from causing injury to the underside of the foot.

The forefoot area of the platform has a nylon fiber rock plate. It also provides protection against harsh surfaces and other hazards on the trails.

Additional cushioning is given to the underfoot in the form of the Profile Sock Liner. This add-on is made with Ortholite technology, which also offers antimicrobial and anti-moisture properties.


Upper

The upper unit of the Saucony Peregrine Ice+ features a mesh material that’s protected with the FLEXSHELL technology. It’s water-resistant. It won’t make runners worried about getting the shoe or their feet wet when running on ice.

The Flex Film Overlays are thin films that are welded to sections of the upper unit. They adapt to the tightening and loosening of the shoelaces, thus giving a snug and secure fit.

A RUNDRY Collar Lining manages moisture from the inside. It basically prevents moisture from permeating inside the foot-chamber, therefore maintaining a dry environment for the foot.

A Gusset Tongue is designed to stave off rocks and other small debris from entering the shoe from the front.

An external heel counter locks the rear of the foot in place and prevents it from exiting the shoe unintentionally. It’s helpful when it comes to keeping the foot stable in the foot-chamber. The presence of a rubberized toe tip ensures durability and protection from potentially injurious surfaces.
