Salomon XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoe - Gear Review

April 24, 2007

You don't know what you've got till it's gone Three years ago I bought my first pair of Salomon shoes thinking that I liked they way the looked and wanted to try out a shoe with the quick lacing system. Well, I was impressed but I don't think I quite knew what a fit this shoe was for me until last year when I bought another brand of shoes to try something different. I bought a comparable shoe with what was supposed to have a more ridged sole and a traditional lacing system. I then realized how much I missed the comfort, fit, breath-ability, and quick durable lacing system. So, this year I decided to go back to Salomon and try out their Salomon XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoe. This shoe is even better than my last pair of the same shoe. How I use the shoe I like to have a decent pair of every day shoes that I can take to the trails for a run and wear as my every day shoe. I am 6'2 and 195 lbs., and these shoes hold up very well. Features I like The toe piece has been redesigned to protect you from jagged rocks on the trail with an over the top toe-guard. I don't know about you but I seem to stub my toe at least once on every trail run. The look design on the heal is stitched in in such a way that makes it very easy to grab. Again, I use these as my everyday shoe and getting them on and off fast is a plus for me. The lacing system now is stitched in a little farther down the foot giving an even better fit up front. The breathable sandwich mesh makes this a very comfortable shoe for just about every weather condition and activities The sole is surprisingly well built and comfortable for how light the shoe is. There is plenty of support and shock-absorption. Buy Now: Search for Salomon Trail Runners
