THE SELL: Less shoe, more grip. A minimalist trainer with maximum traction. THE TEST: Like the idea of less shoe but timid about barefootlike footwear? Let the Peregrine play intermediary. Among the most popular shoes in our test, the Peregrine has a low heel—a nod to barefoot-running mechanics—and encouraged us to land on our midfeet instead of riding back on our heels (more like a Kenyan and less like a weekend jogger). Whether it was ten-mile technical trail runs in the Rockies, speed work on smooth dirt, or even a road marathon, this shoe felt light, nimble, and sure-footed enough for the challenge, with a big-toothed tread that stuck every landing. THE VERDICT: A great choice for minimalist converts who want a bit more shoe underfoot. 9.1 oz.
Support: 3.5
Traction: 4
Versatility: 4.5
