Trail running generally involves a lot of uphill hauls, which is when a lightweight, responsive trainer like the Saucony Men's ProGrid Peregrine 2 Trail Running Shoe really lends a helping hand. Low in weight, low-profile in the upper, and minimalist in its offset, the Peregrine 2 helps you experience the thrill of racing up and down trails without feeling weighed down by a lot of unnecessary features.

- Backcountry.com refers to the men's version

If a dirt trail sounds like a refreshing change from your normal pavement pounding running route, then slip into the Saucony Progrid Peregrine 2 Trail Running Shoes for men. These minimalist shoes have a tiny heel-to-toe offset, keeping your feet close to the ground, and letting you run with a more natural stride. The multi-directional sole offers traction on rugged trails. The mesh upper feels lightweight and breathable, and the Ortholite footbed, thin EVA midsole, and Bedrock outsole will cushion your feet just a little, while shielding them from rocks, sticks, and other trail debris.

- EMS refers to the men's version

Saucony ProGrid Peregrine 2 men's trail-running shoes offer a neutral platform with exceptional grip and a low-profile, responsive ride for great feel and traction on trails. Lightweight, flexible and highly breathable nylon uppers boast synthetic leather and thermoplastic urethane overlays for structure and support. Uppers feature a loop for gaiter compatibility when you need extra protection; gusseted tongues help keep debris out when not using gaiters. 4mm heel-to-toe drop encourages a shorter, lower impact stride than traditional running shoes do. Padding beneath laces helps relieve lace pressure for extra comfort. Nylon linings breathe well, wick moisture and dry quickly to keep your feet cool and comfortable. Cushioning system in heels works in tandem with lightweight EVA midsoles to offer maximum cushioning and enhance efficiency and response. Strobel board construction boosts responsiveness and stability on uneven terrain. Thermoplastic urethane plates supply lightweight support and help protect feet from stone bruising. Sticky rubber outsoles on the Saucony ProGrid Peregrine 2 trail-running shoes are aggressively lugged for exceptional grip.
