The Xodus has been hit­ting the trails for nearly a decade, and it re­mains ev­ery bit the tank it’s al­ways been, with trail-pound­ing tread and footcradling pro­tec­tion. The third it­er­a­tion has been re­fined and gets a brand-new mid­sole. Sau­cony’s Everun foam now cush­ions the en­tire length of the Xodus – dish­ing out a sur­pris­ing amount of en­ergy re­turn and com­fort for a shoe this rugged.

Plus, Sau­cony thinned out the sole a bit for a lower pro­file that keeps you closer to the trail. Our testers noted no loss of horse­power. The one knock: it’s be­come rather heavy. The shoe has packed on 85 grams over the last two up­dates; but our testers say it doesn’t feel that beefy, and they’re will­ing to trade the weight for the trac­tion and dura­bil­ity it of­fers.
