Saucony Peregrine ISO
298g (UK 7)
The ninth edition of Saucony's all-rounder offers a very smooth ride thanks to a great mix of cushioning, durability and grip. Our tester took them for a spin from the door, out on to a gravel track and then on to some thick mud. We had no problems staying on our feet on the latter, though you'll probably want something a bit more aggressive if you're going to be focusing on boggy fells and parkland. The low-profile 4mm drop meant they were great on a faster-paced run and added to their responsive feel. Coupled with the now well-established ISOFIT upper, which helps mould the shoe to your foot, this made them a joy.
Verdict: Adaptable road-to-trail favourite with great comfort.
