The Xodus has been the flagship of Saucony’s trail line, and has just received a complete overhaul to highlight its new approach to the category. The upper is a closed, engineered mesh with no-sew overlays, and now uses the ISO fit system long seen on Saucony’s high-end road models.
Salewa has a long history in outdoor products and footwear, but it’s new to trail running.

By offering a little something for everybody, New Balance has carved out a niche in the trail running category. The Gobi is the first Fresh Foam trail shoe, merging two logical New Balance strengths. The upper is an engineered mesh with no-sew overlays and the requisite Toe-Protect™ for toe protection that’s up to the job.
