A Running Shoes Guru reviewer put the Pegasus35 through the paces saying, "I took this shoe on a long run as well as doing 200s onthe track, and it performed very well across a wide spectrum of paces.

2mm, which makes these shoes a little less ideal for intense speed work orrace day wear.
A tester from Running Shoes Guru says, "thelight construction of the shoe was great, but the higher drop really had me overworkingmy quads at times.
" Despite this, they still consider the BrooksAdrenaline to be a shoe that, "continues to improve each year.
" While these may not have as much responsivenessas a truly lightweight shoe, they make up for that with a smooth and comfortable ridethat will help prevent fatigue even on long runs.

Great support, comfortable run, durable design.

The versatility of the Saucony Peregrine 7will deliver, whether you have an adventurous spirit that loves mountain races and ultra-running, or you're simply looking for a way to lose the suit and tie and unwind with a run onthe trails.
The Peregrine is a fast and nimble neutralrunning shoe, but it has the ruggedness and durability to conquer almost any type of terrainwhile protecting your feet.
It comes as no surprise that versions 4 and6 claimed the It comes as no surprise that versions 4 and6 claimed the Runner's World Editor's Choice Award, and the 7 claimed this year's BestBuy award for holding a steady price even with new updates.
Building on this foundation of success, thePeregrine 7 features a redesigned upper that allows for more room in the toe box, as wellas a full-length Everun topsole that allows for a more cushioned feel throughout the shoe.
The Peregrine line of shoes typically takessome time to break in, but the updated topsole helps reduce break in time.
These shoes weigh in at 9.
8 ounces and havea fast and responsive feel that make them an ideal shoe for trail racing, but theirdurability makes them a great daily trail shoe as well.
This durability extends to the rugged outsole, featuring aggressive lugs that make these shoes able to handle loose terrain includingmud and snow.
Road Trail Run gave these shoes an excellentreview after testing, noting that they do especially well on steep gradients and roughtrails with their versatile outsole.
The rockplate in the outsole was also appreciatedwhen running over rough terrain.
The TPU exoskeleton of the redesigned upperwraps around the entire forefoot, providing a better fit and holding the forefoot in place.
This exoskeleton extends to the toe bumper, which is one downside as it offers very little stub protection.
The insole can also have a tendency to slidewhen it gets wet, but testers from I Run Far recommend gluing this down if it does becomean annoyance.
Luckily, Saucony doesn't shy away from makingupdates where needed, so this could very well be remedied in the next version of the Peregrine.
While some runners found that the Peregrine7 ran slightly small, once they sized up, they were able to find their perfect fit andpraised the comfort and lightweight feel of the shoe.

And for our last pick we have the best lightweightmen's running shoes which go to the Saucony Freedom ISO 2s.
Saucony makes our list again with a neutralshoe called the Freedom ISO 2, an upgraded version of the revolutionary Freedom ISO.
A few small changes were made to the originalversion, resulting in a more comfortable and natural feeling ride.
The added comfort makes this shoe even moreideal for every day runs than its predecessor.
It can handle both speed work and long runswith ease.
The midsole of the Freedom ISO 2 is made entirelyout of the bouncy material known as Everun.
Saucony has been using this thermoplasticpolyurethane (TPU) in other shoe models, including the Saucony Peregrine 7, but this is one ofthe first running shoes to use it for the full length of the midsole.
The Freedom ISO 2 has some similarities tothe lightweight Saucony Kinvara, but the addition of the full-length Everun midsole is whatgives the shoe a bouncier, more energetic feel that not only makes it effective forspeed work, but also keeps you feeling fast on those longer runs.
While the Everun midsole creates a slightlyheavier platform, but any weight it adds is offset by the sleek, stripped down designof the upper.
The ISO 2 features an upper made from a Sauconymaterial called ISOKnit for even more breathability and comfort — a nice addition to the ISOFITtechnology which is designed to give runners a comfortable fit.
They are slightly heavier than the FreedomISO, but the men's model still weighs in at 9.
1 ounces, keeping them well within the lightweightrange.
The stack height of the ISO 2 has been raisedby 3mm because of the increase of Everun in the sole, but this is what makes for the morecomfortable ride.
The outsole features a grooved crystal rubber, a transparent and durable rubber that masterfully handles the abrasion of road and track alike.
While some feel that the Freedom ISO 2 sacrificesa little of the snappy response for the added comfort, most didn't notice a difference betweenthe two.
This reviewer from Running Shoes Guru whosays, "to be frank, on my first run if I was not told that the shoe on my foot was a differentversion of the Freedom, I'm not sure I would have noticed the difference.
" The best kind of running shoe update is oneyou don't notice at all, or if you do it's because of the benefits — not any drawbacks.
In this sense, the Freedom ISO 2 is a successfulupdate to a successful original.
This amazon reviewer says, "If you liked thefirst edition of Freedoms, you'll like these.
Sizing is truer and there is more paddingon the upper ISO.
" If you want to make a statement on the road, these shoes will deliver with fun colors and a two-toned outsole.
It has a fun design, but even more importantlythis shoe is also fun to wear.
It has a responsiveness that begs you to pushthe tempo, and the versatility to handle speed work as well as longer runs.
You can even pretend you're Usain Bolt asyou're flying around the track.
We won't tell anyone.
