      These are the best trail shoes I have owned. I am 6'00 195 lbs and run 30-35 miles per week, about half on pretty technical trails. These shoes have the right amount of flexibilty and cushioning. I was able to wear these right out of the box and have had some great runs in them.

        Comments about Mens Salomon XT WINGS 2 Trail Running Shoe:

        This is a great shoe. Salomon may just not be my brand (size 9 is a bit too small, size 10 is a bit too big and I have to improvise with different socks' thickness to solve the issue) but in other aspects I like their shoes. They feels comfortable, provide needed protection and seems like you can run in them forever (looged over 1000 miles on first pair and they still serve well).

          Comments about Mens Salomon XT WINGS 2 Trail Running Shoe:

          I was trying to find the right trail running shoe for off road in an environment with a decent amount of rocks and sand. Just finished trying the New Balance 910. Although good shoe, it was boxy wide in the toe area so RRS rep recommended I give this a try. Glad I did. Toe fit felt natural and secure. Though the internal arch support is fine, I recommend purchasing a pair of your own arch support inserts. The shoe supports inserts very well. Nice match, indeed. The standard insole was way too flimsy for me. At first, the shoe style and lacing system feel as if the laces will cut through the top of your foot if you have to run more than 2 miles. I assure you they won't. After 7 1/2 short miles, I felt as if I were almost wearing comfortable snug slippers. The shoes eliminated any foot fatigue and the lacing system was non existent. Nicely done, Salomon. I was amazed with how well the shoe conformed to my foot instead of the other way around. I had to check, on a few occasions, to see what shoes I was wearing. Side gravel and larger rocks- no problem. Trail running requires confidence in your ability to maneuver around and through obstacles. XT Wings 2 ensures you do. Although you do feel the ground below you, you also realize you are protected from debris. I needed under belly protection in the arch area and these Salomons provided it without feeling too soft or stiff like a board. These shoes seem to work well with Wright Socks. Just slip them on and go. There is no sliding around in these 'gloves'. I have been running in these on the same trails as used for the previous shoes and there is a difference in the construction, feel, breathability and support. If you have been looking for something that is missing in other shoes, I think you will find these may fill in that hole. These are my first pair of Salomons and it feels like a good relationship to have in the future!

            Comments about Mens Salomon XT WINGS 2 Trail Running Shoe:

            I run the great percentage of my mileage on fairly technical trails in the Wasatch moutains. I've never had a shoe that felt as secure. With this shoe, you can really bomb the downs, it feels like, no matter what you land on, the shoe helps your foot land right. Great traction, flexible forefoot making getting up on your toes on the most steep uphills easy. The lacing system I can see being nice on those cold days when one's fingers might be too numb to tie a lace. Not the lightist shoe, but that is totally made up for in the security I feel running in this shoe.

              Comments about Mens Salomon XT WINGS 2 Trail Running Shoe:

              I have been running trails in the Adrenaline ASR, which I've been pretty happy with. However, they seem to lose their life pretty quickly on the rocky, technical trails I run on. So, I decided to check out a pair of Wings 2. I don't have enough miles yet on them to see how they will hold up. But wow! They feel quite "runnable" for such a substantial shoe. But it is on the downhills that they come into their element. They have such a feeling of stability, you can confidently let gravity do the job, every footstrike seems stable on the most gnarly, scree- filled trail. Let's hope they are durable, but in the meantime, these shoes are serious fun to run in.
