Salomon S-Lab Sense review by Gabe
Familiarity: I’ve put it through the wringer
I’ve tried on lots of running shoes over the years but none have ever fit my odd ball foot as good as these. For you other running nerds out there… I have a narrow heel, high arch, wide forefoot, and generally low-volume foot. There protection isn’t super, but I’ve found it sufficient for such places as the Wind River Range, Big Horn Mountains, and San Juans. The price is disgusting,even embarrassing, but I have to say for me it was totally worth it.

The Saucony Peregrine 3.0 is the middle child in Saucony’s family of 4mm heel-to-toe offset trail shoes, which also consists of the Xodus and the Kinvara TR. As the middle child, it blends the low-to-the-ground feel of the Kinvara TR with the more substantial protection found in the Xodus. We found the result to be a versatile trail option.

The Peregrine’s upper feels substantial, with a tough overlay pattern that wraps the foot and offers a locked-down fit. The closed mesh upper material provides protection from the elements but as expected doesn’t offer a boatload of breathability; runners in colder climates have the added benefit of a bit extra warmth in this shoe.

The midsole of the Peregrine offers up a moderate amount of cushioning; the shoe has a bit of bounce and responsiveness to it while maintaining a close to the ground feel. We think the Peregrine 2 is a great option for runners who want to get a little closer to the trail but still have a nicely protective platform underfoot. The rock plate does make the shoe a bit firmer, but stops poke-throughs and minimizes bruising.

After running to victory in the 2011 WS100 and UTMB, the Salomon Men’s RX S-Lab Sense Trail Running Shoe hardly needs to show anyone its credentials. S-Lab is Salomon’s moniker for elite-level shoes designed for top athletes. This shoe is low, lightweight, fast, and it allows for natural foot motion and forefoot running on the trail.

Open mesh uppers are breathable and well ventilated for hot-weather running
OS Tendon provides dynamic cushioning that enhances propulsion through the end of the foot strike and allows for natural foot movement from toe to heel
Seamless construction (2nd Skin) means that the textile upper glides over your foot without chafing

Runners enjoyed the Peregrine’s outsole design, aggressively lugged for multi-directional traction on a wide range of terrain types. Though the Xodus is still our favorite for boot-like protection on the most demanding trails, the Peregrine is a winner for the runner looking for a low profile, yet versatile trail shoe that can perform like a champ on most terrain.

Saucony Peregrine 3.0 Review
“Many minimal trail shoes don’t offer the protection for anything longer than 30k. The Peregrine 2 delivers a balance of cushioning and a fast, low profile feel for solid performance at longer races.” – Erik

Saucony Peregrine 3.0 Review
“I would prefer a more open and flexible upper material for a more forgiving fit; however, this aggressive outsole is what I would want when running technical and rocky trails.” – Taro
