I'm a huge fan of the Peregrine and Kinvara and have had at least 6 pairs of each and used them on runs of 50 miles. I was excited to try these and while they fit exactly the same of the Kinvara and Peregrine they don't work as well. The Peregrine and Kinvara are very flexible shoes and when I push off they flex with my foot and the heel cup remains firmly wrapped around my heel. The strike plate in these shoes is noticeably stiffer and when I push off my heel slips a bit. So far I've only done 5-8 mile runs and it hasn't been an issue but I worry about developing blisters on longer runs. If there are a lot of rocks on the trails where you run these are probably the way to go but if your trails are more dirt than rock I'd stick with the Peregrine or even the regular Kinvara.
I can wear this version!
I could not wear the first version due to a very tight toe box.Saucony listened and this version fits my wide forefoot perfect.My second run in them was a 11 mile "all trail" and had i no issues with blisters or anything.Although the traction is good the first two runs in them I hit a hidden root or rock and went head over hills!But I saved my Ambit watch!Haha Bottom line great trail shoe that makes you want to run faster!!Only thing I would recommend to Saucony is put the Peregrine tread under neath and it would be awesome!The Peregrine is the ONLY shoe I've found that works well on wet trails!
best trail shoe ever
I have been using kinvara 3 to run trail because I just love the ride on this shoes but they keep on tearing from the side due to rocks and roots , the kinvara trail has the same feel is the road version but seems a lot more durable so far I done 5 and 11 miles on this and so far so good.

Just ran a 50k in these. Very comfortable, agile, and responsive. Best trail shoe I have used. Haven't had it long enough to comment on durability. Works well on both smooth and rocky trails.

Big Improvements over Trail 1s
Slightly more narrow than the Kinvara road editions but they are much more spacious than the Kinvara Trail 1s. I like where this shoe is going, much better than huge clunky trail shoes.
Best trail running shoe I've had
Great shoe. Have been searching for the best trail running shoe for years and I found it with this one. Enjoy.
