It’s been over a decade that I have been using XERO Shoes. Needless to say, I’m a big fan.

The outdoor activities that I enjoy the most rucking and hiking. I’ve logged a heck of a lot of miles rucking and hiking with my XERO Shoes. I always found them to be comfortable but when it came to slippery, muddy and sandy terrain, my XERO Shoes didn’t offer much as far as traction. The good that the XERO Shoes offered me out-weighed the con of not having traction so I always opted for my XERO Shoes.

A few years ago XERO Shoes introduced their TerraFlex model. The TerraFlex offered all the specs that I enjoyed from my other XERO Shoes models but it removed the one con that I had which was the lack of traction. The TerraFlex offered lugs or cleats on the bottom that gave excellent traction regardless of the terrain.

TerraFlex II NOW AVAILABLE IN ‘2022!

I recently received an email from XERO Shoes introducing me to their new 2022 models. As I read through the email I saw that there was a new, TerraFlex II model! I contacted XERO Shoes and they opted to send me a pair of the new TerraFlex II for me to review.

I received the TerraFlex II shoes and as soon as I unboxed them, a smile came over my face. These were lighter, more durable and even looked better than the original TerraFlex model.
