This is my First (1st) Pair of SALOMON Running Shoes, which I Purchased ON-LINE on May 20th, 2015. Currently, I RUN/WALK-HIKE over Twenty-Eight (28) Miles per Week, Year-round. The Sophistication of the SALOMON Brand begins the moment one opens the Shoe Box. The Inside-Top displays the Information necessary to DOWN-LOAD the SALOMON CITY-TRAIL full Application! At a Weight of 10.2 Ounces per Running Shoe- the SALOMON X-MISSION 2 is 01.2 Ounces Lighter than my ASICS GEL-CUMULUS 14s at 11.4 Ounces and 01.9 Ounces Lighter than my ASICS GEL-SCOUTS at 12.1 Ounces per Shoe. The COLORS, especially the TOMATO RED and the DEEP Bright ORANGE (Flea) have already drawn numerous Positive Comments! The Materials & Fabrics are Pristine and the Workmanship is also Superior with NO TEARS to-date. The Running Shoe is Manufactured in INDIA. For me, the most Important TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION is the Simple and Brilliant One-Pull Tightening QUICK-LACE SYSTEM! The SALOMON X-MISSION 2 feels slightly Tighter in the Toe Box and also Narrower than my existing ASICS GEL-SCOUTS and/or my PUMA FAAS 500 TRs (TRAIL). Overall,the Technological Innovations in the SALOMONs are far Superior to my existing GEL-SCOUTS and/or PUMA FAAS 500 TR (TRAILS).
