Saucony® Peregrine 11 ST Named Editor’s Choice by Runner’s World in Spring 2021 Shoe Guide

Press Release:

Global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony is excited to announce that the Peregrine 11 ST has been named Editor’s Choice in the Runner’s World Spring 2021 Shoe Guide. The Peregrine 11 ST is the mud-shedding, muck-loving model of the Peregrine11Collection, a triad of grippy, protective trail shoes that deliver both an aggressive and responsive ride. Named for the fastest bird on Earth, the Peregrine Collection includes the always capable Peregrine11 with grippy versatility to handle nearly every trail; the Peregrine11 ST for muddy, sloppy conditions; and the Peregrine11 GTX® with waterproof protection. The Peregrine11 Collection is available at saucony.com and select running specialty retailers globally.

In his review of the Peregrine 11 ST, Runner’s World test editor Jeff Dengate said, “What sets the ST apart is its muck-loving outsole and upper, which are built for a full send along swampy single track. The toothy lugs are 1.5mm longer, with more spacing between each to shed mud quickly, and the upper is switched to an abrasion-resistant mesh outfitted with quick lacing. To secure the shoe, just cinch the skinny bungee cords and stow them inside the tongue—there’s no fiddling with wet bunny ears. Plus, the entire shoe is cloaked in its own mud guard; if that’s not enough splatter protection, you’ll find additional loops to add your own gaiters.”

“The Peregrine was exceptional across the board,” said one Runner’s World tester, “wonderfully responsive and capable across deep mud and loose gravel to snow, with an amazing fit that needed none of my usual lacing tricks.”

“Slush, mud, snow, or muck: there are no limitations to the Peregrine 11 ST,” said Katie Pyle, product line manager for Saucony Trail. “Winning this award from Runner’s World speaks to the powerful momentum we continue to build in our trail category, creating a game-changing running experience for off-road runners everywhere. The Peregrine 11 ST is a clear result of the innovative and dirt-power spirit of the whole Saucony team and we are extremely proud of this prestigious recognition.”

About the Peregrine11 ST:Go off trail. Not off speed.

When the ground gets soft, the Peregrine 11 ST shines. Taking the responsive feel of the Peregrine 11, the ST (soft terrain) version is modified to excel in sloppy, muddy conditions. It’s equipped with deeper lugs, spaced out to dig in and shed mud fast. The rock plate on the Peregrine11 ST is enclosed for underfoot protection and to safeguard from mud. Up top, a debris-resistant mesh upper with 3D-printed overlays protects against trail hazards and is finished with a tight mesh shield over the tongue for a final measure of defense.

Multi-Award-Winning Heritage

Since the Peregrine’s original debut in Spring 2011, the franchise has now been named by Runner’s World as “Editor’s Choice” five times.

ASICS ANNOUNCES NEWEST ADDITIONS TO ENERGY SAVING SERIES WITH LAUNCH OF GLIDERIDE™ 2 AND EVORIDE™ 2

[February 5 2021 – KOBE, JAPAN] – Today, ASICS announces the launch of GLIDERIDE™ 2 and EVORIDE™ 2 models, the newest editions to its popular Energy Saving Series designed to help runners go for longer, faster and easier.

Built on ASICS’ GUIDESOLE™ technology, the new shoes make running feel easier, reflecting ASICS’ ongoing commitment to help everyone achieve a sound mind in a sound body through sport.

GLIDERIDE™ 2

Building on the success of the hugely popular GLIDERIDE™ shoe, GLIDERIDE™ 2 shoe is ASICS’ latest premium, energy saving shoe, offering an even smoother and more cushioned ride.

Once again centered around GUIDESOLE™ technology to deliver superior energy saving for the runner, a key new feature of GLIDERIDE™ 2 shoe is gender-specific tuning, with a lower density foam for a softer feel underfoot offered for female runners – placing ASICS’ spirit of personalization at the heart of the shoe’s updated design.

Meanwhile, a widened midfoot base and reduced underfoot cutouts offer a smoother transition from heel-strike to toe-off for greater running efficiency. A newly engineered 3D-printed mesh delivers an improved upper fit and added comfort from the first mile to the last.

EVORIDE™ 2

EVORIDE™ 2 shoe is ASICS’ lighter, more affordable energy saving shoe. Building on the success of last year’s EVORIDE™ shoe, the shoe’s updated design features a lower density FLYTEFOAM™ material. This makes it more lightweight with an even softer feel than its predecessor.

EVORIDE™ 2 shoe is also based on ASICS’ GUIDESOLE™ technology, helping runners propel forward more easily at toe-off through a specially-designed angled midsole that provides extra support at the ankle. What’s more, GLIDERIDE™ 2 is perfect for more environmentally conscious runners too, with approximately 20% of the shoe’s upper made using recycled material.

KENICHI HARANO, Executive Officer, Senior General Manager, Institute of Sport Science at ASICS said: “In 2021 and beyond, everything we do will be geared towards championing the positive impact of sport on mental wellbeing and inspiring people all over the world to achieve a sound mind in a sound body. As we continue to invite runners all over the world to experience the uplifting power of sport by moving their mind at sunrise, launching the next generation of our popular GLIDERIDE™ and EVORIDE™ silhouettes is the latest step on this journey. There’s no better way to experience the two shoes’ incredible energy saving benefits than joining us on this mission and moving your mind at sunrise.”

Both GLIDERIDE™ 2 ($150) and EVORIDE™ 2 ($120) models are available for men and women from ASICS retail, online stores and specialist running outlets globally from February 5, 2021.

“This shoe was designed for the individual who tries to balance it all, but refuses to compromise when it comes to making time for their run. As a result, they are often lacing up their shoes long after the sun sets – or before it even rises,” said Emily Mullins, Director Product Float, Reebok. “As a fitness company it’s important that we’re creating products that help individuals train at their best – no matter the conditions or circumstances. For this particular shoe we wanted to deliver something that would allow individuals to train safely at any time of day. To do that, we utilized a 360-degree reflective midsole and reflective hits on the crosscheck side stripe.”

Reebok Unveils the Nano X1, the Official Shoe of Fitness

Press Release:

BOSTON, Mass. – January 13th, 2021 – Today, Reebok unveils the highly anticipated Nano X1, the official shoe of fitness. Designed to be the most supportive, comfortable, and versatile training shoe the brand has ever made, the Nano X1 is ready to take on and tackle any fitness demand thrown its way.

A silhouette born more than 10 years ago that was originally created to meet the unique demands of athletes within the box, Reebok has continually evolved the Nano franchise over time to adapt with the fitness landscape and service the growing needs of the wider wellness community. The Nano X1 is the most refined iteration of the popular training shoe, designed to be as versatile as today’s passionate fitness lover it was created for.

“Just like any great athlete who’s always looking to hit their next PR, we are not going to stop trying to set a new one either when it comes to creating great product.  And we’re confident, the Nano X1 is our best training shoe yet,” said Tal Short, Reebok Senior Product Manager.  “During a time when fitness is so critical to not just our physical, but more importantly, our mental well-being, we’re incredibly proud to be able to support the fitness community with a product that can help individuals and athletes of all levels train at their best.”

In celebration of its launch, Reebok has enlisted an elite collective of athletes, trainers, and leaders within the wellness community from around the world to bring to life the Nano X1’s ‘Official Shoe of Fitness,’ campaign.  Here, partners ranging from Rich Froning Jr., fitness legend and 4 x Fittest Man on Earth, to Camille Kostek, an advocate for self-acceptance and former professional dancer, bring to life the Nano X1’s versatility through their own playful and dynamic “Official Shoe of” adaptions based on their unique fitness passions and training demands.  Additional brand partners featured throughout the campaign include the likes of Chyna Cho, Terron Beckham, Lexie Brown, Haley Adams, Jason Khalipa, Taylor Rae Almonte, TJ Watt, Kristin Holte, Erin Maw, Kenta Seki, and more.

“Whether it’s putting in the work during an intense bootcamp or just having fun trying out the latest dance craze, Reebok’s new Nano X1 gives me the support I need,” said Camille Kostek.  “I love how lightweight and comfortable it is for any type of exercise, yet stylish enough for all day wearing.  In a time when I’m especially missing the in-person support I rely on from my favorite group fitness classes, it’s been the training partner I’ve needed to keep me motivated and feeling my best.” 

Designed to be the official shoe of fitness, the Nano X1 fuses the comfort of a running shoe while maintaining the performance credentials of a superior training shoe in order to meet the demands of the modern-day fitness landscape. Whether it’s HIIT, bootcamp, cardio, dance, boxing, or functional training, the Nano X1 was engineered to perform.

Key details include:

  • Comfort: fuses Reebok’s Floatride Energy cushioning of a running shoe while maintaining the performance and stability of a training shoe
  • Speed: the sleek shape and design allow for maximum speed and runnability
  • Control: provides designed stability to support varied workouts

For the first time, the Nano will be available in multiple upper material options at launch – Flexweave Knit and Flexweave Grit – that consumers can choose from based on their individual training needs and preferences.  The Reebok Nano X1 features Flexweave Knit, a soft yet strong, style-driven upper that consists of an all-new knitted material, providing max breathability; while the Reebok Nano X1 Flexweave Grit features an ultra-strong, lightweight and durable material that’s built to withstand the most extreme workouts.

While the Reebok Nano X1 will be available in a wide range of color selections on its global launch date of February 3rd, a limited-edition release is available today, exclusively for UNLOCKED members on Reebok.com.  The “I’ll Call You Back Nano X1 celebrates the individuals who are consistently making the time in their day to shut out the background noise and distractions and put in the work for their own personal development.  Available in a sleek, triple black colorway with reflective detailing, consumers will have access in select sizes starting today for this special limited release.

ultraboost 21: latest edition of the iconic franchise delivering incredible energy return with every stride

Press release:

A team of our leading designers and product developers worked closely with the adidas running community and testers to create the new ULTRABOOST 21 silhouette, which reimagines the original ULTRABOOST to deliver a bold new design combined with the latest in performance technology.

The core development in ULTRABOOST 21 is the redesign of the shoe’s torsion system. The new adidas LEP (‘Linear Energy Push’) provides a 15% increase in forefoot bending stiffness for a more responsive stride. This works alongside our proprietary midsole BOOST technology, which packs in 6% more BOOST through an exaggerated heel curve, providing runners with incredible energy return and comfort in every step.

We have always believed that through sport, we have the power to transform lives and ULTRABOOST 21 embodies its commitment to bring energy to people to drive positive change and self-betterment. Arriving at a time when cities around the world have been heavily disrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, running has continued to be a constant that has kept cities and communities moving.

A global study, commissioned by us, highlighted the power of running to aid positive transformation and improved physical and mental wellbeing in communities. Runners were shown to be 20% more likely than non-runners to experience increased energy levels, while over 40% of respondents that increased their running frequency, also said that they developed a more positive outlook on life. Over 1 in 3, meanwhile, identified the mental health benefits of running as one of their core motivating factors.

“ULTRABOOST has consistently been a unique and sensational blend of iconic design, revolutionary innovations, unparalleled performance and unique consumer experience. BOOST and PRIMEKNIT have created and elevated new industry standards, while PRIMEBLUE has set a new benchmark of sustainability and adidas LEP is setting new standards of performance. ULTRABOOST has always been a “first”, a ”pioneer”, delighting millions of worldwide users every day, winning their hearts and minds and changing the way they see and feel running.” Said Alberto Uncini Manganelli, General Manager/Senior Vice President, adidas Running.

Saucony® Introduces All-New Peregrine 11 Trail Collection

Press Release:

Global performance running lifestyle brand Saucony has unveiled the all-new Peregrine 11 Collection, a triad of grippy, protective trail shoes built on a trusted foundation of PWRTRAC™ rubber lugs and PWRRUN™ cushioning that feels both aggressive and responsive. Named for the fastest bird on Earth, the award-winning Peregrine Collection includes the always capable Peregrine 11 with grippy versatility to handle nearly every trail; the Peregrine 11 ST for muddy, sloppy conditions; and the Peregrine 11 GTX® with waterproof protection. The Peregrine 11 Collection will be available at saucony.com and select running specialty retailers globally beginning Feb. 1, 2021.

“With new runners and more traditional road runners taking to the trails in record numbers, the award-winning Peregrine is a trustworthy companion that excels in all that matters: traction, cushioning and durability,” said Katie Pyle, product line manager for Saucony Trail. “The 11 builds on the shoe’s winning formula of dirt-power goodness, being equally at home on the sandstone slickrock of Utah or at a 5K mud fest in Vermont. We know the Peregrine 11 Collection will inspire runners of all levels to revel in the challenge and joy of off-road running, elevating their running experience while forging a deeper connection with themselves and the great outdoors.”

About the Peregrine 11 Collection

The latest generation of the renowned Peregrine extends the limits of performance innovation on many levels. All three shoes of the Peregrine 11 Collection (Peregrine 11; Peregrine 11 ST; Peregrine 11 GTX) offer aggressive lugs made of PWRTRAC tacky rubber that conform to dig in and confidently grip a wide variety of terrain. PWRRUN midsole cushioning provides more flexibility, durability, responsiveness and protection to push uphill and drive downhill with confidence. A rock plate provides additional underfoot protection from trail debris while a mapped outsole guides runner on where to perfectly place studs or drainage holes. The Peregrine 11 Collection is designed with a 4mm offset, allowing the foot to move naturally and uninhibited while increasing the runner’s proprioception and balance over tricky trails.

Peregrine 11: Hit the trails at peak speed.

Runners will love the responsiveness, sticky traction and teeth-like tread of this fast trailblazer. A new, dynamic upper uses a durable ultralight top layer to protect feet from trail debris. Saucony’s most versatile trail shoe, it’s packed with everything runners need to move fast over rugged terrain.

Peregrine 11 ST: Go off trail. Not off speed.

When the ground gets soft, the Peregrine 11 ST shines. Taking the responsive feel of the Peregrine 11, the ST (soft terrain) version is modified to excel in sloppy, muddy conditions. It’s equipped with deeper lugs, spaced out to dig in and shed mud fast. The rock plate on the Peregrine 11 ST is enclosed for underfoot protection and to safeguard from mud. Up top, a debris-resistant mesh upper with 3D-printed overlays protects against trail hazards and is finished with a tight mesh shield over the tongue for a final measure of defense.

Peregrine 11 GTX: All trails. Any forecast.

From summer squall to snowstorm, rain and snow, feet stay dry and comfortable in the waterproof Peregrine 11 GTX. Starting with the brand’s most versatile and most trusted trail shoe, the GTX version is packed with everything runners need to move fast over rugged terrain. A GORE-TEX upper is added for lightweight, flexible, waterproof protection.

Multi-Award-Winning Heritage

Since the shoe’s original debut in Spring 2011, the Peregrine has been named by Runner’s World as “Editor’s Choice” four times.

Peregrine 11 Collection Availability

The Peregrine 11 Collection will be available at saucony.com and select running specialty retailers globally beginning Feb. 1, 2021. ThePeregrine 11 will be available in men’s sizes 7-13 and 14, and women’s sizes 5-12. The suggested retail price of the Peregrine 11 is $120.00; the Peregrine 11 ST is $130.00; and the Peregrine 11 GTX is $150.00.

The Nike React Infinity Run 2 and the Nike ZoomX Invincible Run: Keeping You Strong and Carrying On

Press Release:

A goal as ambitious as reducing running injuries can be approached in two ways. One is to refine an existing silhouette to make it even more effective. The other is to introduce a fresh solution. To that end, the Nike React Infinity Run 2 and Nike ZoomX Invincible Run continue the mission from Nike Running to crack the injury-prevention code, serving everyday runners by creating a new relationship among cushioning, stability and rocker geometry.

The iterative step is the Nike React Infinity Run 2, which features an updated Flyknit upper to help promote more strength and support in the toe, eye-stay and foxing, and with more breathability in areas like the vamp and the midfoot (Nike Flywire cables have also been added throughout the upper to help increase support). The collar is also updated to feel more plush without adding weight or bulk.

A new step altogether in the search for harmony among cushioning, stability and rocker geometry is the Nike ZoomX Invincible Run. The midsole is made with responsive ZoomX foam, which returns more energy underfoot than any other Nike foam.

Created for long training runs, the Invincible silhouette includes more foam in the midsole than React foam in the Infinity, creating a soft ride while returning more energy for improved running economy. The rocker geometry and the wider nets in the forefoot help create a more stable ride and fluid stride transition (compared with the more springy transition of plated running footwear), making the Invincible ideal for higher mileage runs.

The Nike React Infinity Run 2 and the Nike ZoomX Invincible Run release globally beginning January 7.

RunEASI wearable enables runners to train and rehabilitate more efficiently

The wearable is worn around the waist.

Being able to exercise without pain or injury: it’s every athlete’s dream as well as the goal of RunEASI, a new spin-off of KU Leuven. RunEASI’s wearable measures the impact experienced by runners and provides scientific feedback that can help them avoid and recover from injuries. The spin-off is supported by the Gemma Frisius Fund and the Freshmen investment fund.

Runners typically use a heart rate monitor, but this device does not offer insight into how the body responds to the impact caused by the feet landing on the ground. And yet, this impact is precisely what determines the risk of injuries. RunEASI – which originated from a collaboration between movement and computer scientists at KU Leuven – has therefore developed a wearable application that does assess these important parameters.

This is achieved using a sensor that is attached to the lower back with a belt and is connected to an app. The sensors measures the impact on the body while running and detects any movement compensations that may occur. The app provides feedback to improve the running pattern. RunEASI is the first application that can perform such an analysis and intervention in a scientifically validated and efficient way. The application will be available on the market as of mid-February 2021.

Stability, symmetry, impact

“We are trying to establish the link between the way in which someone runs, the associated impact loads, and the risk of injuries,” says Professor Benedicte Vanwanseele from the Human Movement Biomechanics unit at KU Leuven. “Three parameters are key to this: stability, symmetry, and impact.”

“Research has shown that trunk instability increases with a runner’s fatigue level. When this is combined with high impact loads, this creates a compensatory pattern that increases the risk of overuse injuries. Symmetry shows whether the impact is equally divided between left and right: after an injury, for instance, a runner may favour one leg without realising it. Last, but not least, the impact parameter shows how the body responds to the shocks that occur when the foot strikes the ground.”

“Our tool intervenes when the data show that the runner has a harmful running pattern,” says computer science professor Jesse Davis. “AI allows us to analyse when the body is exposed to the most severe impacts. This can depend on the surface, the pace, the duration of the training, the runner’s fatigue, and other factors. On the basis of this analysis, coaches and physiotherapists can proactively adjust the runners’ training.”

More insight and better support

“With RunEASI we want to help runners, whether it be professional or recreational ones, to achieve their goals with less risk of injury,” explain co-founders Kurt Schütte (CEO) and Tim Op De Beéck (CTO). “The way our sensor is attached is unique and was developed in cooperation with the orthopaedic experts at Steunzoolpunt. It enables us to measure our new movement metrics very efficiently and accurately. Physiotherapists can use this scientific analysis to better assess when someone is ready to resume training after an injury.”

“We strongly believe in digital tools that improve a person’s quality of life, and this ambition is also reflected in RunEASI,” says Steven Spittaels of the Freshmen investment fund. “It’s an application that, thanks to its scientific feedback, can be of great added value to runners and professional healthcare providers. Athletes obviously want to know how to stay injury free and we want to support RunEASI to help them achieve this.”

“We are extremely grateful for the belief and financial support of the Gemma Frisius Fund and Freshmen Fund,” responds CEO Kurt Schütte. “With their support, we can fulfil our mission and ambition to make the world run better.”

Amendment to development shoe rules in international competitions

Press Release:

World Athletics has approved a change to its rules governing development (prototype) shoes following requests by all major shoe manufacturers and the industry body that represents them, the World Federation of the Sports Goods Industry (‘WFSGI’).

The amendment to the rule will allow development shoes to be worn in international competitions and competitions sanctioned by Member Federations where World Athletics rules are applied, prior to their availability to other athletes, upon approval of the shoe specifications by World Athletics. These shoes will have to meet the same technical specifications as all other approved shoes.

Development shoes can continue to be worn in any competition where World Athletics’ competition and technical rules are not applied.

The amendment, approved by World Athletics’ Council on 4 December, applies with immediate effect, to competitions sanctioned by World Athletics, Area Associations or Member Federations at which World Athletics’ Competition Rules and Technical Rules are enforced, but will not be permitted to be worn at the World Athletics Series or the Olympic Games.

The development shoe can only be worn for a 12 month ‘development’ period.

A list of approved development shoes will be posted on the World Athletics website stating the date from which the development shoe can be worn and the expiry date for approval. To date there is a list of 200 (spikes and non-spikes) approved shoes listed and published on the World Athletics website.

This new proposal will be complemented by an athletic shoe availability scheme for shoes which is being developed by a Working Group on Athletic Shoes with representatives from shoe manufacturers and the World Federation of the Sporting Goods Industry (WFSGI).

World Athletics CEO Jon Ridgeon said: “The use of competition to complete the final testing of development shoes by manufacturers has always been an important part of the shoe development process. This year has been a difficult one for both shoe manufacturers and athletes with significant disruption to manufacturing and reduced access to competitions for athletes around the world.

“With shoe manufacturers agreeing to our new process of submitting specifications and shoes, if required, for approval ahead of being worn in competition, we are confident that this amendment will not impact the integrity of competition.”

Summary of notes relating to the new rule:

“Development shoe” means a shoe (i.e. spike or road shoes) which has never been available for purchase but which a sports manufacturer is developing to bring to market and would like to conduct tests with their sponsored athletes (who agree to test the shoe) on issues such as safety and performance before the shoe is available for purchase.

Development shoes are not required to be made available for purchase or subject to the availability scheme provided that, prior to being worn for the first time, the development shoe meets the following conditions:

  • the athlete (or their representative) must submit the specification to World Athletics and, where requested, provide a sample of the development shoe for further examination which includes, if necessary, cutting up the shoe, and provide the date and event of the first competition at which the athlete wishes to compete in a development shoe
  • confirm the latest date upon which the sports manufacturer will make the final version of the development shoe available for purchase which must be not be later than 12 months after the first time the development shoe is worn in a competition.
  • the athlete (or their representative) submits to World Athletics a list containing the date and event of the first and all subsequent competitions at which the athlete proposes to wear a development shoe within the 12 month period. The athlete (or their representative) must notify World Athletics of any changes to that list.
  • the athlete (or their representative) has received prior written approval from World Athletics that the development shoe complies with the requirements of Rule 5 of the Technical Rules and is approved for use in competitions.
  • Subject to compliance with all rules and regulations (including this Rule 5 of the Technical Rules and these notes), performances achieved by an athlete wearing a development shoe will be valid. After the conclusion of a competition a development shoe must be handed over by the athlete on request by World Athletics for further investigation by World Athletics which includes, if necessary, cutting up the development shoe.
  • World Athletics will publish from time to time on its website a list of approved development shoes stating the date starting from which the development shoe can be worn and the expiry date for approval. No technical or proprietary information belonging to a sports manufacturer will be published.
  • After the expiry date specified the shoe no longer qualifies as a development shoe and can no longer be used in competitions. The shoe will be removed from the approved list after its expiry date and, subject to compliance with all rules and regulations (including this Rule 5 of the Technical Rules and these notes), results achieved by an athlete wearing the development shoe will remain valid.
  • In accordance with the rules and regulations, World Athletics reserves the right to classify a result as ‘Uncertified’ (‘UNC TR5.5’) or declare the athlete’s performance as invalid for non-compliance with Technical Rule 5.
