The Saucony Peregrine 2 has been replaced by the Saucony Peregrine 4 - Women's.
The Peregrine 2s are a great transition-to-barefoot shoe. They are lightweight and responsive, making them a great racing or just general trail shoe. They have an aggressive enough tread and protection to tackle the roughest trails, but they perform well on pavement too. The low drop and high sensitivity put the Peregrine in the transition-to-barefoot category. Compared to the other transitional shoes we tested such as the Keen A86 TR – Women's and the Salomon Speedcross 3 – Women's, these shoes have the most varied capabilities. While they did not score the highest in any one category, they did perform well overall and therefore received the Best Buy Award for being an excellent deal as well as an excellent performer.
