Peregrine flies high with Fifth Editor’s Choice Award
WALTHAM, MASS. (Feb. 24, 2021) – Global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony is excited to announce that the Peregrine 11 ST has been named Editor’s Choice in the Runner’s World Spring 2021 Shoe Guide. The Peregrine 11 ST is the mud-shedding, muck-loving model of the Peregrine 11 Collection, a triad of grippy, protective trail shoes that deliver both an aggressive and responsive ride. Named for the fastest bird on Earth, the Peregrine Collection includes the always capable Peregrine 11 with grippy versatility to handle nearly every trail; the Peregrine 11 ST for muddy, sloppy conditions; and the Peregrine 11 GTX® with waterproof protection. The Peregrine 11 Collection is available at saucony.com and select running specialty retailers globally.
In his review of the Peregrine 11 ST, Runner’s World test editor Jeff Dengate said, “What sets the ST apart is its muck-loving outsole and upper, which are built for a full send along swampy single track. The toothy lugs are 1.5mm longer, with more spacing between each to shed mud quickly, and the upper is switched to an abrasion-resistant mesh outfitted with quick lacing. To secure the shoe, just cinch the skinny bungee cords and stow them inside the tongue—there’s no fiddling with wet bunny ears. Plus, the entire shoe is cloaked in its own mud guard; if that’s not enough splatter protection, you’ll find additional loops to add your own gaiters.”
“The Peregrine was exceptional across the board,” said one Runner’s World tester, “wonderfully responsive and capable across deep mud and loose gravel to snow, with an amazing fit that needed none of my usual lacing tricks.”
“Slush, mud, snow, or muck: there are no limitations to the Peregrine 11 ST,” said Katie Pyle, product line manager for Saucony Trail. “Winning this award from Runner’s World speaks to the powerful momentum we continue to build in our trail category, creating a game-changing running experience for off-road runners everywhere. The Peregrine 11 ST is a clear result of the innovative and dirt-power spirit of the whole Saucony team and we are extremely proud of this prestigious recognition.”
About the Peregrine 11 ST: Go off trail. Not off speed.
When the ground gets soft, the Peregrine 11 ST shines. Taking the responsive feel of the Peregrine 11, the ST (soft terrain) version is modified to excel in sloppy, muddy conditions. It’s equipped with deeper lugs, spaced out to dig in and shed mud fast. The rock plate on the Peregrine 11 ST is enclosed for underfoot protection and to safeguard from mud. Up top, a debris-resistant mesh upper with 3D-printed overlays protects against trail hazards and is finished with a tight mesh shield over the tongue for a final measure of defense.
Since the Peregrine’s original debut in Spring 2011, the franchise has now been named by Runner’s World as “Editor’s Choice” five times.
