My initial impression is that these shoes are wonderful. They fit like a slipper and offer good support. The heel to toe drop feels just right as a trail shoe. Tractions seems adequate for an all everything shoe and the fit was as described so order a half size small. The jury is still out on actual durabilty and this has been my personal issue with salomons in the past. I am a short course off road triathlete and do most of my running on trails and forest service roads. They seem to be great as long as you stay away from the big mud.
Ok, after using this shoe for the summer on several trail runs, I have returned it as the lugs on the sole seemed to wear out much faster than advertised. I am a forfoot runner and the lugs around the ball of my foot were almost worn down to nothing, but the top of the shoe still looked new. I still loved the fit of this shoe, but the tread still needs some work.
