First look: Saucony Xodus ISO

The shoe: Saucony Xodus ISO

In a nutshell: Cushioned, protective and durable without compromising on grip.

The technology: 2015’s Xodus 6 gets updated with Saucony’s Everun cushioning tech in the heel and topsole to add comfort on uneven surfaces, along with their ISOFIT upper designed to adapt to your foot shape.

What Saucony says: “The Xodus ISO is our most advanced trail offering ever, surrounding you with maximum protection for a rugged, aggressive ride that’s still smooth and fluid.”

What we say: “Although slighty chunkier than their Peregrine model, my usual trail shoe of choice, the Xodus ISO’s protective toebox makes them a solid guard against stubbing-related injuries and their cushioning is like nothing else I’ve felt in a trail model. The deep outsole lugs provide excellent traction on wet, slippery surfaces. The Xodus ISO also feels natural on road, making it great for mixed terrain runs.” – Georgia Scarr, Deputy Digital Editor


The Xodus ISO is available from Saucony for £115.
