Saucony Xodus Iso 3
366g (men's UK 9) £140
Dare we say it, but these shoes love a bit of road! Don't think they can't cope with mud, though – indeed the reverse is true thanks to the deep-lugged dual compound outsole. And such is the cushioning thanks to Saucony's wonderfully soft Everun technology, it's a shoe that definitely can cope with long stretches of tarmac before you venture off-road. The Xodus is an interesting shoe because it works off a low 4mm drop and does feel responsive and low to the ground, yet that cushioning creates a suitably cushioned response when you drive off. The uppers are soft and flexible thanks to the trail-specific Isofit dynamic upper.
Verdict: For long, lazy days where pace isn't an issue but comfort is.
