The Salomon Men's XA Pro 3D CS WP Trail Running Shoe is built to bust through wet and muddy conditions with ease. When your evening trail run turns into a muddy suffer fest, you'll be glad you have the XA Pro 3D on, because with the Climashield waterproof membrane, it will fend off moisture, and with the Quick-dry mesh upper, it'll dry quickly when you stomp through a puddle. The Ortholite midsole provides a comfortable platform for your foot to come down on, while the shaped EVA footbed cradles your foot over miles of trail. The midsole implements three technologies to provide your foot with optimum cushion and to propel it forward. Dual-density EVA and compressed EVA work together to save on weight and offer increased stability over variable terrain. Meanwhile, the 3D advanced chassis is designed to provide a more comfortable take-off to keep your feet moving forward. The Contragrip sole handles everything from mud to rock, and a toe bumper provides additional protection when you're navigating extra rocky terrain.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
A couple of additional comments pertaining to the shoes and some of the other comments previously posted:
a) Size and fit: were both just fine and "Sized as Expected" but the shoes definitely needed a couple of hours of wear to break-in - especially in the arch and toe box area
b) the waterproofing material used in the tongue definitely has a "crumpling plastic sound" for the first couple wears
c) BEWARE!!!! The shoes are great on the whole but I will forewarn you that the "WP" or waterproofing feature of the shoes renders them completely unbreathable. I wore them for 3 straight days with a good quality, light weight SmartWool sock and my feet/socks were literally wet to the touch when I took the shoes off at the end of the day. I've never had this issue with a pair of shoes, ever! This made me return them for the same pair of shoes but without the waterproofing.
The shipping was lightning fast. The shoe is very nice, with a great fit. I like the lacing system, whereby you can hide the lace lock under the tongue. Additionally, the ultra thin laces snug up quickly without having to tighten each individual eyelet section. My only negative is what was mentioned before; the fabric is noisy. As I walk it makes a crunching sound as though I was stepping on a candy wrapper. It's not very loud, but it is audible. Several times I looked to see if I had a wrapper stuck to the shoe. I'm not sure if this will go away, but it does take getting used to. Perhaps this noise will serve as a bear deterrent in bear country? Hehe. Anyway its not a deal breaker, and feel that the pluses of this shoe far outweigh a little noise. Finally, I like the self cleaning, semi-aggressive thread design. It's rubber is not too hard and, unlike my Merrill's this Salomon repels mud rather effectively. I really like the shoe and would have given it 5 stars were it...
Well made shoe, a bit heavy and stiff for light mountain hiking. They did not fit "my" foot. After a mild 7 mile walk my feet were very sore and I had a blister on the inside of my foot. I've already purchased a pair of North Face for future hikes.
