Everything is fine except ...

By Rob

from Undisclosed

Comments about Mens Salomon XA PRO 3D ULTRA Trail Running Shoe:

Everything is fine except for the lace stays. The bottom two are half the size as the upper 3 rows, and are unreinforced. So, they rip through. After 4 months, one on each shoe has torn through. If they were as robust as the upper three rows, this may not have happened. Frustrating. Bad Design. Meanwhile, my five year old Merrells, similar design, but tougher, are still going strong. The Solomons were purchased to replace the Merrells, but now the Merrells are back on my feet. beware.

    Comments about Mens Salomon XA PRO 3D ULTRA Trail Running Shoe:

    Felt good on 1st run of 16ish mi. on a rooty, rainy, wet, muddy trail w/fair amt of up/down. Very comfortable but I wonder if they will cut it on the longer runs -- the cushioning is lighter and the sole more flexible than I am used to and this feels great on a mid-teen run, but may not be enough support and protection on a longer run.

      After my second time running in these shoes I was convinced they had the best traction of any trail shoe I have ever worn...12 miles on single track mountian bike trails in southern Indian in a heavy down pour...did'nt slip once!

      This is a great shoe. I wore these through a 50 mile trail race in rainy conditions, and my feet felt wonderful. Pretty good on roads as well, but only if you are on your way to the trails.
