Review: Saucony Peregrine 14

Saucony Peregrine 14

Running is arguably the most accessible sport in the world: all that’s really needed is a pair of shoes. And when taking to the steep mountain trails around Bozeman, I want to make sure I have a good pair. The Saucony Peregrine 14 is a trusty, comfortable, everyday shoe that is versatile enough for any trail run or hike ’round here. Rocking a 4mm heal-to-toe drop, they fall in the sweet spot for trail runners. For someone with an average foot shape, they fit great right out of the box—no need to crank down on the laces to get them tight and potentially cut off circulation. After a couple break-in runs, they start to feel even better. I especially like the combination of thick cushion and aggressive tread. Additionally, a plush midsole keeps them comfortable for the longer days, while the outsoles provide enough grip and stiffness for pushing the speed limits. Instead of being distracted by uncomfortable shoes, the Peregrine 14s allow me to keep my head up, be in the moment, and enjoy the mountains. $140;
