Seth Osprey Schumacher wrote a review of Salomon XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoe - Men's on January 16, 2008
I took this shoe with me on my thru-hikes of the Appalachian Trail and Continental Divide Trail. I LOVE THEM. In the entire 3700 miles I had 2 blisters, both on the AT, and have used four pairs. They last forever and keep me extremely comfy. They grip the trail great, a bonus in Maine and New Hampshire where the AT scales near verticle boulders in the trail, and they vent like no other and dry in a flash. I also run my ultras and relays in them on both road and trail and have never run in a better shoe.
