Saucony Shoe Reveiw and Contest!

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!

Oh that is so like Christmas in March!!!! I have 4 sisters and not ne of them understands how I would so much rather buy a pair of new running shoes over a pair of "pretty shoes". New running shoes makes me all giddy!

Hey Rob. I don't like "pretty shoes" either. LOL! Happy Running!

RunnerDude said...

Thanks for the gear reviews! I haven't tried on any Saucony's since about 1983 when I had trouble with a pair. Sounds like it's time I give them a fair chance since it's time to replace my New Balance Trail Runners.

Have you ever given anything less than 5 Dudes out of 5 Dudes?

RunnerDude said...

Yes. I give the product what I believe it deserves. Luckily I've be given great products to review. I have given a 4 Dudes rating before to BodyBottle. To do a review and not give my true opinion rating would be a disservice to my readers.

I SO need a pair of Peregrines! My only running shoe is the Saucony A4, but have been wanting then to make an A4 Trail. Looks like the Peregrine is the answer.
