Like 'em...with one minor issue

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: True to size

I fell in love with Salomon after I took a recommendation to try the Quest 4Ds for work use. Those are the most comfortable things hat have ever wrapped my feet. I decided to get the XA Pros for more of an every day walking around shoe. When I got these I was initially disappointed because there was a noticeable lump in the middle that pushed on the bottom of my foot. I gave them the benefit of the doubt and hoped the bump would even out. After about two weeks of no luck I tried taking out the Ortholite foot bed. It looked ok so I tried positioning it I little forward of where it was before. Its an improvement, but its still not perfect. Other than this minor issue, these shoes are awesome, I would definitely get them again...I just might have to replace the Ortholites.
