Canadian Running - - TRAIL SHOE GUIDE -

The lat­est ver­sion of Sau­cony’s do-all trail com­pan­ion gets a to­tal re­tool­ing, al­though some of the tweaks are mi­nor. Sau­cony added a nice soft top­sole of Everun in the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, and that re­mains. But the de­sign­ers have switched up the EVA un­der­neath with a more pre­mium ma­te­rial called PWRFOAM. It’s more re­spon­sive and durable. The other big change with the ride of the Pere­grine is that it’s now much more flex­i­ble. The rock plate is gone, and tooth­ier 6 mm lugs are put in its place to add trac­tion and pro­tec­tion. Flex grooves are also added to make the Pere­grine 8 a much more dy­namic run­ning ex­pe­ri­ence.

The up­per also gets a sim­i­larly thor­ough yet non-in­va­sive re­work­ing. Now, Flex­film over­lays add an over­all bet­ter fit. Af­ter all this tweak­ing, the Pere­grine 8 is a touch heav­ier than the pre­vi­ous ver­sion, but it’s also a bet­ter, more widely ap­peal­ing shoe.
