When the trail turns steep with loose dirt and rock trying to throw you off your game, you'll be glad that you're wearing the Saucony Men's Powergrid Xodux 6. 0 GTX Trail Running Shoes. With an aggressive tread pattern, a Gore Tex waterproof membrane, and a protective forefoot plate, running in the Xodus is like tearing up the trail in an ATV. Built for serious trail running, the upper is equipped to handle demanding terrain with sturdy overlays, a molded toe shell, and a gusseted tongue to keep dirt and rocks from hitching a ride in your socks. A 4mm drop and responsive Powergrid sole make them an ideal choice for the non pronating runner seeking a more minimalist feel. And when the trails are really muddy, they feature a gaiter compatible design, so you can get after it in the deep and dirty.
