Who should buy the Saucony Peregrine Ice+
Saucony Peregrine Ice+ is the solid shoe for you if:
- You want a reliable shoe that can be optimized for trail running on icy surfaces
- You want a visually appealing neutral running shoe to use for long-distance running or marathons
Vibram’s Arctic Grip on Saucony Peregrine Ice+ outsoles
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.
Responsive takeoffs with Peregrine Ice+ midsoles
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 midsole 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.
Dry feet even on ice with the Peregrine Ice+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.
