REVIEW: Saucony Peregrine 10 ST – a great trail shoe for the muddy and technically challenging terrain

Om Laura By Laura Nijhuis


Are you looking for a true racer for your very muddy runs? I have tested the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST, which is a trail running shoe for the soft and muddy terrain. Get my review of the trail shoe here






Saucony Peregrine 10 ST is a trail running shoe built just like the Saucony Peregrine 10. The difference between the two models is the type of terrain, as the Peregrine 10 ST is designed for the technically challenging terrain.

ST is an abbreviation for soft terrain, which, as the name suggests, means the shoe is designed for running in soft terrains. 

Peregrine 10 ST is the Saucony trail shoe with the most aggressive studs. This is an advantage if you are running in soft terrains, as you truly need to dig deep into the mud or other types of soft surfaces, like snow




The midsole of the Peregrine 10 ST has seen an improvement and now has Saucony’s PWRRUN material. This ensures great comfort and a protective feeling throughout the run. Trail shoes are generally firmer than a regular everyday trainer for firm surfaces, but I do not notice this when I run in the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST. The midsole feels shock-absorbing and the studs deliver a good landing and an optimal toe-off.



The Peregrine 10 ST is the best trail shoe from Saucony for the soft terrain, as the studs are now even deeper and more directional, which provides for a noticeable difference in relation to traction and getting a good grip with the surface. The studs, however, are not so hard that they prevent me from running the short distance of asphalted roads to and from the forest.

Saucony Peregrine 10 ST now overtakes the Saucony KOA ST to become the Saucony shoe with the most aggressive grip.



The upper is made from a durable mesh material that is both breathable and water-repellent, so you can avoid getting water and moisture inside the shoe when you are running

In wet conditions, I could clearly see how the water was prevented from getting into the shoe and instead clustered into small droplets. My feet were kept dry – even though the shoes were covered with mud and water sometimes. This is very comfortable, as there is nothing worse than running with cold, wet feet – especially not on the long-distance runs.

The Peregrine 10 ST uses Saucony’s FormFit technology, which allows your foot to stay in place in the shoe instead of twisting around. This is as close as you can get to a stability shoe when it comes to trail running, as there is no such things as stability shoes for trail running

A stability shoe is pointless when it comes to trail running, as the uneven and varying terrain forces you to compromise your style of running.  

Some may think that the extra deep studs and the durable upper may affect the weight of the shoe. However, the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST feels relatively light and the fit is incredible. It feels like my foot becomes one with the trail shoe, which makes the run feel natural and effortless



With the improved midsole and studs, the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST is fantastic for the very wet and technically challenging terrain. For the more dry and firm terrain, I would recommend the Saucony Xodus or Saucony Peregrine 10 that are both more versatile in relation to the terrain.

The Peregrine 10 ST is a versatile trail running shoe, as it is good for the long-distance runs, but it also performs really well for the short and fast runs, in my experience. I see the Saucony Peregrine 10 ST as a great all-rounder for the soft and challenging surface.
