Love the minimalist sandals! I'm ready to pull the trigger on my first pair, looking at the Pah Tempe or Exodus Heros. They would be a one does it all, hiking, running, and occasional kayaking. Not a huge fan of the toe post. Any info you could lend would be great in aiding in my sandal selection. I've been married to Five Fingers and Chacos for so long, I can't wait to get these on my feet!

@Stephen,

So if the toe post is going to bug you (and note that the toe post on the Exodus is more forgiving/less irritating than on huaraches and overall, I'm down with it), you might veer to the Pah Tempe. My only advice on the Pah Tempe would be to steer clear of the cork footbed as it seems to degrade the flexibility of the sole. Makes sense in light of cork being a dense, firm material and it's not a ding on Pah Tempes as it's easy to just get the standard footbed.

Good luck!

Thank you for the great review! My husband is a youth director and all of his kids are crazy about Chacos but I just can't see trying to strap a brick like that to my foot. I've been trying to get started in the minimalist sandal area (I've had a pair of $8 flip flops that are 3 sizes too big as my only pair for the past 2+ years). I tried a pair of Luna's and unfortunately they just aren't working for me. I went tradtional (which may have been my downfall) and no matter how tight or which way I tie them, my heel slips around and off the edges. So, close but no cigar. Now I'm just about settled on these as replacements with the pre-molded footbed, but before I take the dive, I'm wondering your opinion on the footbed options. I live in south Texas and it's hot and humid 8 months out of the year, and I'm worried about the resulting sweat and slip and stink on the plain soles. One of my draws to the Luna's was the MGT, so with the XOs would upgrading to the gripster soles or would that be overkill? (And I'm little worried it may be too rough and irratating) The deerskin seems to be out, since it seems like the humidity would just make the tackiness tackier. Any ideas?

Hi there! So glad you found this review and are interested in a pair of XO's!

I think the Gripster footbed is a good option an though it seems aggressive, you don't feel it as much as you'd think.

However, I have another footbed option I have been looking to test and
would be willing to talk it over with you to see if you are interested. It is similar to the current Gripster but less aggressive. Get in touch with me here and let me know if you're interested!

Thanks!
Ryan

Great review, and I like the 10mm thickness too.

Did you try out the "gripster" foot bed?

BTW Animated gifs make me dizzy, and very difficult to read the article. I know it's trendy now, but it will pass.

@Jeremy,

Have yet to try gripster -- very curious about it though.

Tried to make the gifs about 75% smaller, which might alleviate some of the obnoxiousness of them! Thanks for the feedback!

With all the great reviews that came out lately, it's getting harder and harder to make a smart decision. It would be nice to have a buyer's guide where we can easily identify which products are best-in-class for our different needs (road running, trail running, fitness / crossfit, winter running, golf, multi-use, casual).

are these no longer available? All my searches come up with dead links?

Sad to find out that yes, indeed, Exodus is closed for business. Bummer -- loved their design and sandals.
