Why We Like The Saucony Xodus Ultra 2 Trail Running Shoe

When collecting miles, we lace up with the Xodus Ultra 2 Trail Running Shoe. Equipped with a plush stack of Saucony's pebax-based superfoam, this shoe's platform is lighter, hardier, and bouncier than standard EVA-based midsoles, softening the ground while propelling us into new personal bests. Through the ups and downs of the trail, the 3-piece outsole adapts to the terrain for more ground contact, and its multi-directional lugs chew up the earth, delivering solid strikes and powerful toe offs with every stride.


  • Cushy, responsive trail shoe for distance runs on technical terrain
  • Engineered mesh upper is breathable, durable, and flexible
  • Integrated lace keeper to prevent snags and trips
  • 6mm drop encourages a natural gait and midfoot strike
  • Ultralight, lively foam for a fast, springy ride that lasts
  • PwrRun frame offers light medial guidance for a healthy stride
  • Sticky, hardwearing rubber for reliable on-trail traction
  • Multi-directional lugs for bite up and down hills

Smaller than their predecessor

I have a pair of the original Xodus Ultras that I LOVE and they have taken a beating, so I figured it was time for a new pair. Unfortunately, these don't fit like my first pair. After my first hike in these my toes were so sore from jamming into the front of the shoe, an issue I never had with my previous pair. I'm not sure if the whole shoe is smaller, or if they just decided to trim down the toe box, but it is super disappointing. Here's hoping that they'll eventually pack out. =/

Solid shoe, terrible traction: 3.5 stars

Overall I really love this shoe, but there are a few significant shortcomings. Overall the shoe feels incredibly comfortable, with a great deal of flexibility for a trail runner. It feels more like a road shoe, which I love. It's very lightweight, and feels easy for long trail technical trail runs. I have a significant bunion on my right foot, which limits my big toe mobility. These shoes give me space to comfortably splay my toes, and don't aggrevate my bunion toe at all. Huge win. However there are two significant shortcomings which *almost* have me looking to try a competing brand. The main issue I have is that the outsole is not at all grippy on wet rocks. Like... at all. I am located in the north east and all of the trails around here are incredibly rocky. Running on wet rock in these in nearly impossible. You just slide all over the place. I've previous worn the Brooks Caldera. I hated almost everything about that shoe, except for the fact that the outsoles were SO grippy. You weren't going anywhere. Pair that with the fact that the lacing system in these makes it almost impossible to keep the laces really tight, and you have a true technical trail challenge. Saucony if you fix those two things you'll have me screaming about these shoes from the rooftops!

My go to running and exercise shoe came thru with a great light weight trail hiking shoe. The toe box is a bit narrow, so consider sizing up for long runs or hikes.

Perfect for hiking

Bought these shoes specifically for a hiking trip in Arizona. Could not be happier. They are very comfortable even after 10+ miles! Traction is excellent and got me over some very slippery bare rock faces on the trails. Highly recommend!

Narrow Toe Box of Doom

The Xodus Ultra was so perfect. So so good. I’ve put so many miles in multiple pairs. So I was really excited about the Xodus Ultra 2… until I put them on. The updated mid of the upper is nice for technical terrain, but WHY the narrow toe box? 7 miles and I’ll never wear them again, just total foot destroyers. I can’t imagine trying to run 100 miles in them like the originals. A truly disappointing update to what was almost the perfect shoe.

Disappointing Toe Destroyer

Ohhhh I really wanted to love these because I love my Saucony road shoes. But these destroyed my feet. I do not understand why more shoe companies producing trail shoes don't get on the big toe box thing. Nobody's feet are tapering to a narrow toe box after 6+ hours of trail running. Two stars because they do have good cushioning with the rock plate. But I'll be sticking to my Topos for trail runs.

Ultra race tested!

I have a wicked heel-spur and needed the extra cushion for a 50K. The sole was sturdy and handled the rubble and technical trails beautifully. I completed the race with no additional pain. It does add an extra couple of inches to your foot, so remind yourself to pick up your toes!
