I will start off by saying I bought these shoes out of my own pocket on a great recommendation from a friend. I had a pair of Peregrine 2`s and absolutely loved them from the moment I put them on, so was very excited to purchase the 3`s.
I purchased the P 3`s and put them on for my first run. A 40km trail run that covered multiple types of terrain along the Great Ocean Trail.
Specs: These shoes have a 4mm drop so on the minimal side. They have a little more cushion in them which is why I believe I have been able to wear these shoes back to back to back without pain in my feet. I have done a 120km training run on the Saturday and backed up with no blisters or pain in my feet for a 70km run in these shoes on the Sunday. They weigh around 300grams. They have changed the rubber sole of these since the P 2`s using a rubber that seems to have more traction, making these shoes even more stable over trail surfaces. I have run in mud, snow, slippery tree roots, dry trails and soft sandy beaches.
They have reinforced the toe box on the 3`s with some light rubber around the edges. The toe box is probably slightly on the narrow side but they do tend to stretch out a bit with running.
Drainage: This is probably the only downside to these shoes. It seems they have not quite worked out their drainage system with these shoes. They don`t seem to hold a lot of water but the extra cushion in the sole does not drain too well. Although the P 3`s are a lot better than the 2.
Lacing: I love the laces on the new P 3`s. They are using as thicker lacing system. Once they are done up that’s it I have not had to re tie them every 5 min when I trip over them.
I had a lot of trouble with the 2`s damn laces were always coming undone. They seem to have rectified this problem on the new ones.
