- Great all round off road shoes Review by David
Quality Price Value
The Peregrine 5's seem to have continued where the 4's left off. Comfortable from the start I was perhaps overly optimistic wearing them out of the box in a sweltering 27 mile trail marathon. The shoes were great until the later stages of the race where I began to suffer with blisters, more from excessive sweating in the humid 25 degrees temperatures than caused by the shoes themselves.
I again love the visual look look of the shoe and they are most at home on hard packed trail and light technical rock sections. Light and fairly responsive, the shoes have a relatively low heel to toe drop and although I think they may be marginally heavier than the previous iteration they are a good half way shoe between traditional stack height and barefoot style running shoes. The sole compound again appears very hard wearing and some of the upper wear issues I suffered in the 4's seem to have been addressed by a larger protective rand protecting the little toes on the shoes outer side. The integral rock plate again gives good protection against underfoot projections and the shoes fare well in all but the muddiest of conditions where perhaps a more studded Inov8/Saloman style sole is more appropriate. Not an out and out racer they are a capable high mileage shoe which can be pacey where required.
The sole pattern can collect mud in heavy conditions but at this time of year the shoes have not had to face the brutal mud of the traditional UK winter.
To date I have run approximately 100 miles in the shoes, (with at least 15000 feet of ascent/descent), and they look almost as knew with NO signs of wear and tear to uppers or sole. Very pleased to date with my latest Peregrines which as the 4's before them are my go to off road shoes and looking forward to many off road adventures in the coming months. (Posted on 14/06/2016)
