Canadian Running - - GREAT STRIDES -

Many Cana­di­ans opt to go with trail shoes in or­der to bat­tle the el­e­ments dur­ing win­ter. It’s not a ter­ri­ble idea, as many trail de­signs trans­late nicely to ice and snow. With the new Pere­grine 6 Ice+, Sau­cony takes its neu­tral trail main­stay and win­ter­izes it per­fectly. Up top, the Pere­grine’s up­per is coated in their “Shield” DWR, which, while not quite as breath­able as Gore-Tex, does keep the foot dry. Sau­cony’s Flex­film de­sign keeps your feet ir­ri­ta­tion and blis­ter-free, and is in­deed quite flex­i­ble. The game-changer for Sau­cony is the ad­di­tion of Vi­bram’s new Arc­tic Grip out­sole. Sau­cony and Mer­rell have ex­clu­sive rights to the ma­te­rial, and it’s an in­cred­i­ble in­no­va­tion for Cana­dian run­ners un­in­tim­i­dated by win­ter out­door run­ning. The grip pads feel like a fine grain sand­pa­per, and grab onto black ice like it’s dry tar­mac. If you want to run with­out fear this win­ter, con­sider the Sau­cony Pere­grine 6 Ice+, or its more heavy-duty sib­ling, the Ra­zor Ice+.— CR
