Saucony Women’s Peregrine 11: first impressions

The Saucony Women’s Peregrine 11 comes in a range of eye-catching colorways, and we really like its retro looks. Okay, so style probably isn’t your first thought when shopping for the best women’s trail running shoes, but it can’t hurt – and the Peregrine delivers performance-wise, too. 

We tested out the non-waterproof version of the Peregrine 11, which worked fine for shorter runs, but if you’re tackling cold conditions or snow, a waterproof membrane might be your best bet, and Saucony have a Gore-Tex version (opens in new tab) of this shoe available for a few extra dollars.

Saucony Women’s Peregrine 11: on the trails

We found the non-waterproofed version quick to dry and to shed water, so they’re a good choice for warm but wet summer runs (see also: how to choose trail running shoes). 

A low drop and a combination of a good grip and a lightweight build (each shoe ways in at just 270g) make the Peregrine ideal for taking on more challenging, rocky ground and for going off-piste from more groomed trails – the trail feel (the feedback you get when making contact with the ground) is great.

These shoes feel light and freeing to wear, so no dragging of feet towards the end of a long trail run. We found the Peregrines’ fit a shade on the narrow side around the toes, so it may be worth trying on a few different sizes, or avoiding if you have wide feet or bunions (see also: how should trail running shoes fit?).

A men's option (opens in new tab) is also available.
