Saucony Xodus 10
- Max. comfort at long-distance-running
Saucony Xodus 10 has max. shock absorption and max. comfort.
The upper is a trail-specific version of the popular Formfit-upper which we are are already familiar with from Sauconys normal running shoes. It has an amazing fit around the midfoot but at the same time there is plenty of ventilation by the toes.
There is also plenty of padding around the heel and the tongue below the laces is also thick which combines to make it very comfortable.
Sauconys premium shockabsorbing material named PWRRUN+ is injected into the midsole which provides a soft, protective, pleasant and very bouncy feeling.
There is also a so-called ”rock plate” embedded into the midsole – A solid and semi-hard plate to protect the foot against sharp stones and roots in the surface.
Its perfect for ultra-running, long-distance running or for the runner who just wants max. comfort in various terrains. With Saucony Xodus 10 you get protection and comfort in a class of its own.
