More streamlined than ever for extra response.
At just 9.9 ounces the Saucony Men's ProGrid Peregrine 3 Trail Running Shoe delivers plenty of protection and cushioning that can save you during long trail runs deep in the woods. The upper features a sleek, seamless feel and the flexibility that allows your foot to move naturally during footstrike. Lightweight midsole material provides all the cushioning you need for heavy footfalls on rough terrain, and the rebound required to quickly explode up hills or over obstacles. High-traction rubber and a protective outsole plate fends off damage from sharp rocks and roots and there's just 4mm of drop from the heel to the forefoot.
Saucony offers a range of other trail runners, but the two that most closely compare to the Peregrine are the Xodus 3.0 and Kinavara TR. Both of these shoes offer the same 4mm offset (heel-toe-drop) and aggressive trail design, but the more-flexible Kinavara is a few ounces lighter than the Peregrine while the burlier Xodus a few ounces heavier. Focus on the Peregrine 3 if you want a shoe that feels light when you're climbing, smooth when you're descending, and nimble when the trail throws anything else your way.
- Minimalist Flex Film upper uses welding to reduce seams and overall weight and helps secure your foot in place
- HydraMAX collar lining provides light cushioning around your ankle for comfort and protection
- Premium sockliner reduces friction inside your shoe and it offers a small amount of additional cushioning
- HRC+ Strobel Board is covered by an additional 3mm of foam to give the midsole a buttery smooth ride
- Low, 4mm drop (heel-forefoot offset) means that there's just a 4mm difference between the measured height of your heel and the measured height of your forefoot
- This low drop creates a natural foot position inside the shoe, encourages proper biomechanical flex, and allows you to more easily utilize a mid or forefoot striking style
- TPU heel counter offers improved lateral stability during heel strike, which makes it easier to handle uneven or rough terrain
- High Traction rubber and External Bedrock Outsole (EBO) combine to offer steadfast traction and protection whether you're running on loose, loamy hills or descending along hard packed singletrack
- Other features include a molded toe cap, gusseted tongue, and gaiter compatibility

Rocked these on a 50 miles Ultra. 50% roads, 50% trails. Man did they perform. As I said before, watch the roads, but expecting the stride differential, I made up for it and ran like I was in flats. So comfortable. I was among the only of a 100 person field that didn't change up my shoes at the transition zone from trail to road. I had confidence in the shoe, and it paid off.
Grab em up. What a fantastic shoe. And the color is BA!!
Very Nice, Very Nice

I have put around 30 mile son these since purchasing them. I purposefully did a half road half trail route to see if I could break the shoe down.
The off road traction is wonderful. Super sticky, the lugs are both forward and rearward facing. It offers great grip both up and downhill. The shoe breaths very well and the cushioning is prime. I would say it is a true minimalist hybrid. IT certainly has more support than the 0 drop shoes, but the 4mm drop is great for trail feel. Watch them on the roads though. I wasn't quite prepared for the minimal transition and dealt with some tendon strain until I changed my form to accommodate.
The materials seem high quality.
Overall, I look forward to grinding in these for a couple hundred miles.
