Saucony ProGrid Peregrine 3 Trail Running Shoe - Men's - $109.95

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. - $109.95
