About a year ago I reviewed the Exodus XO minimalist sandal from Exodus Sandals. In that review, I noted that, "One thing I'd like to experience with the Exodus is a foamier Vibram sole—perhaps something like the Luna Leadville. Why? Well, mostly for a little bit more of a plush ride for all-day wear."
Ryan, the founder of Exodus, must have had a similar idea because earlier this summer, he crafted another XO for me to test and review on BirthdayShoes. With an exclusive first-review, may I present the Exodus XO Heroes!
The pair I'll be reviewing today feature a grippy, 10mm Vibram Newflex sole that is lightweight, transmits a great deal of groundfeel, and provides just enough "cush" for all-day wear. What more, the XO Heroes I'm reviewing were outfitted with a deerskin footbed!
How'd the fare? Want to know more? Well, you're going to have to read on!
