Saucony Peregrine 10 Review (ST) – 350KM update

Here is a quick Saucony Peregrine 10 review update for the ST variant.

Over the past two months, I’ve racked up a good 350km of distance on these light trail running shoes. I’ve run in a variety of different conditions and trails, and so thought it would be good to post an update on how I’ve found them.

Saucony Peregrine 10 Review Update

I’ll cover three aspects in this update post. Comfort, drop, and how they’ve handled the various weather and trail conditions I’ve run in over the last two months.

Comfort

In the first Saucony Peregrine 10 ST first impressions post I mentioned that the backstay was uncomfortable to start with. It caused blisters on the backs of my heels initially. This was expected though, and comes with the territory often when purchasing new shoes.

I’m happy to say that the backstay softened up nicely after a few more runs. I just made sure to wear socks that had higher heel coverage initially.

Drop

The shoe ‘drop’ or ‘offset’ of 4mm is something I’ve come to appreciate with these shoes. As mentioned previously, I was predominantly running in shoes with a much higher drop.

The 4mm offset has helped overall with general trail running where I’m not climbing very steep sections all the time. Basically, these are much better suited to general purpose trails.

Conditions

I’ve managed to use these shoes for quite a bit of trail running from the end of Summer, into Autumn. As a result I’ve run through a lot of different weather conditions. These shoes have gone through dry and dusty gravel trails, to wet and muddy slushfests.

Of course they have no issues with the dry and dusty conditions. The tread has hardly worn down at all after 350km, and the cushioning has felt just right to absorb the occasional sharp stone impact.

In mud, the grip does well. I haven’t had any slips, even in a particular muddy 90 degree corner I like to fly around (with a lot of sideways momentum!)

A particularly wet and muddy run, and the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST’s were just fine. Just avoid those deep mud sections!

Waterproof-wise, they’re not the best. You will absorb water if you submerge them in mud or water past the point where the breathing mesh starts. This was to be expected though as they are not specifically built to be waterproof, and don’t have a Gore-Tex material construction.

Final Thoughts

If you’re looking at these as an option, I hope this Saucony Peregrine 10 review update is helpful. Overall, these are great general purpose trail running shoes that do well in most scenarios.

They offer good stability, a nice offset size, and are comfortable to use as a daily trail running shoe. They’re priced reasonably too.
