One of my all time favorite brands of running shoe is Saucony. My shoe of choice is the ProGrid Triumph. Recently Saucony contacted me to see if I'd be interested in testing out some of the new shoes in the ProGrid line. I eagerly accepted the opportunity and soon after, three boxes arrived at my doorstep. One box contained the new ProGrid Guide 4, the next box contained the ProGrid Mirage, and the final box contained the new minimalist trail shoe, the ProGrid Peregrine. It was like Christmas in March!
Below is a video review of my experience testing each shoe. Check it out. I enjoyed each shoe so much that they each receive 5 Dudes out of 5 Dudes on the RunnerDude Rating Scale. All three gave great rides. I particularly like the new Peregrine. It added a whole new experience to my trail running. For the first time, I felt like I was in control.
Win a Free Pair of the ProGrid Peregrine!
