Saucony Peregrine 7 was released in late 2016 and soon it was highly sought after. The fans know that the improvements on the new release must be breathtaking, or at least give them more comfort and enjoyment while wearing the shoes.
Reportedly, in early 2017 when the shoes were officially released, the price was up to $120.00. Such price is equal to the improvements the Company has invested into the pair of shoes.
Saucony Peregrine 7 Body Changes
The appearance of the body is the most noticeable change. There are some changes on the upper, midsole and outsole of the shoes. For example, on the upper part, Peregrine 7 is improved with TPU Exoskeleton.
This includes the more voluminous room in the forefoot, the additional length that should not be a problem for lower volume foot because the strong TPU Exoskeleton works magnificently locking the midfoot down.
Additionally, the Exoskeleton also offers protection for the forefoot to avoid stubbing. Covering essential improvements, the shoes are still light and flexible.
Then, on the midsole, the shoes provide EVA cushioning with full-length Everuntopsole which creates firmness, improving the speed and response while running.
Meanwhile, the outsole doesn’t experience any change. Saucony chooses to stick with the PWRTRAC outsole with EBO rock plate to help runners maneuver surfaces, such as snow, mud and anywhere else. At first use, the rock plate feels stiff and rock hard, but after a while, it becomes less stiff and more flexible.
Saucony Peregrine 7 improves the durability and effectiveness, which are reflected in the appropriate direction of the lugs.
A review said that the lugs on Peregrine 6 are very durable. Even after roughly 100 miles through muddy and dirty surfaces, the lugs show little wear. If the Peregrine 7 adopts this concept, then it has already been proven that they are worth buying.
Saucony Peregrine 7 Performance Review
Saucony Peregrine 7 is specifically designed to run on any type of terrain. Its light weight makes runner runs faster, even on rough trails like snow and mud, loose surfaces, or steep gradients. This can be accomplished because of the rock plate on the outsole.
Its consistency is very ‘grabby’, so you won’t be feeling the ground. Because of that, the shoe is pretty much stable during running.
Its excellent response makes you feel like you have to run faster. But when you run fast, the shoe offers an excellent performance on hard surfaces and miles of pavement. If you want to run less fast, the shoe also shows a wonderful response.
When the shoe is still brand new and you get it out of the box. It is quite stiff and seems uncomfortable. Once you break it, the stiffness disappears quickly. You will soon experience the improved molded padding in the heel which you didn’t find in previous versions of Saucony shoes.
Therefore, Saucony Peregrine 7 should be the top recommendation to anyone, either looking for a fast running trial or otherwise. The shoe is a high-quality shoe which is made compatible with just about any terrain. This should be your number one option in the store.
