Made for your morning run up mountain trails, the Salomon Men's XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoe offers incredible durability, unbeatable traction, and cushioning so supple you'll have to look twice to believe you're on a scree field. An off-kilter asymmetrical Quicklace system takes the pressure off the top of your foot and lets you tighten the laces with a single tug. Quick drying and wickedly breathable, this husky trail shoe trounces trails and spits out unworthy bits of gravel as you get your mountain-goat on. The mesh on top lets your foot breathe while providing a stalwart barrier against clods of hardened dirt. Sensifit and Endofit get a grasp on your foot and won't let go until you're loosening the laces with a beer within reach. Asymmetrical laces follow the natural contours of your paw and give your foot and ankle free range of motion. The 10mm drop protects heel strikers from brutish bits of boulder without forcing midfoot strikers to alter their gait. The 3D Advance Chassis system minimizes side-to-side rolling while smoothing the transition from footstrike to toe-off. Even though the XA Pro keeps a low profile, the OrthoLite insert comes out and ample room remains if you choose to use a custom-molded insole. After one run, you'll become an EVA evangelical. Lightweight and soft, the EVA midsole mitigates your footstrike impact and offers a mere hint of stability. A protective toe cap lets you kick through piles of leaves without worry, and the Contagrip sole is downright greedy when it comes to grabbing the ground.

I've reviewed the XA pro ultra 2 before and this is the newer XA pro 3D (they're SOOO unimaginative with their names). There are a few changes from the previous model that I would like to point out, so anyone who loved their old salomons will get a heads up. This new pair has a cleaner upper, making it less cluttered, and unlike the previous model, the tongue is more of a thinnly padded liner, which makes it even less bulky. These changes to the upper was enough to make me downsize half a size. (I wear 8.5 comfortably in the Pro 2, and 8 for the 3D) The difference between a half size I find with these shoes is very minor in the length and width, but a fairly large difference in the upper. The shoe is also more streamlined and not as flared out near the heal, which i don't like. This shoe looks not as stable as its predecessor, but has bigger "cushioning pods" (those white dots on the heel's midsole). The sole looks like they've gone back to the 1st XA pro, but the rubber...
I had the previous model and they served me well for a year and half . I work in a place that is scorching hot and gravel is everywhere. Difficult terrain to walk and very punishing on footwear of any kind. They are very comfortable and durable. Protects the ankle well although its low shoe. The ventilation is fantastic and they are feather light. Probably the best shoe of this kind and worth's every $. Very satisfied and I recommend them without any reservation.
Might be more of a light trail hiking shoe than trail running shoe. I believe some would consider it a little heavy for a running shoe. For what I do, which is light jogging and fast walking on whatever surface comes along, this works great. I have always thought Nike runs a little narrow, which fits my foot good. I have more room in the toes with this shoe. This works great for up and down hills. I would say it runs quite true to size. The heal cup and sturdy sides hold my foot in place quite well. Definitely a solid shoe.
