Todd N.wrote a review of Salomon X-Wind Pro Road Running Shoe - Men's on June 30, 2015
Familiarity: I've used it several times
Fit: True to size
I think with all shoe reviews, one needs to be clear that the same shoe will fit different people in different ways, and what works great for one person may not work for another.
I have been an avid fan of the predecessors of these shoes. Unfortunately, Salomon, like so many manufacturers, chose to tinker with a well functioning product.
This new shoe lack a lot of padding (to save weight perhaps), and the consequence to me, is that the upper part of the shoe has rubbed my foot raw (through my socks), and I can no longer wear these shoes.
I have also come to dislike the lacing system which prohibits one from fine-tuning the fit, the way you can with laces.
I did not find the shoe to be all that narrow (and I need a wide toe box), but the lack of padding on critical areas has rendered this shoe unusable for me. I would not recommend this shoe (which I see on Salomon's web site has apparently been discontinued).
