Awesome shoes excellent track and very comfortable. It should have been a 5 star if there is lining inside the shoe so no draft. I think this shoe is for summer and not good for winter.
Does Salomon make a GTX version of these or are they planning to at some point? I love these and would really like to have the gore-tex version for early spring/late fall hikes where the temps drop and a few flakes fall.
The only one I could find is this one here.
http://www.amazon.com/Salomon-XA-Pro-Ultra-GTX/dp/B0073OU4YS But I'd be a little careful amazon sometimes has inaccurate descriptions. But as it's sold by amazon and not a third party I wouldn't worry to much.
I really seem to have a problem finding a shoe size to fit me comfortably. Mens 12US is to short, 13-14 US. Usually to long.Do they make a 12.5? Thanks :-). Most of the time I wind up getting a 13US. New Balance. Triple-EEE. :-)
I'm in between a 11 and 11.5. Should I buy the larger or smaller size?
I always go a 1/2 size bigger on Salomons and they fit great.
These are the best hiking shoes I have ever owned; I'm on my third pair, and I use them for everything from easy day hikes to 15+ mile days to overnights with a 30 pound pack. They're so comfortable I don't bother bringing camp shoes. A couple of tips: Superfeet Green insoles add just the right amount of support and stiffness for my tastes. Also I use a light trail running gaiter to keep the junk out and to cover the lace system, (The tongue pocket is kind of a pain). Third, I use Rocky Gore tex socks and just walk right through creek crossings; they drain quite quickly. My only complaints are price and durability. I go through about a pair of year, but that's the price you pay for such a lightweight shoe.
A no buy warning. The shoes by themselves appear to be very good; however, the Quicklace system just wont stay tight and turns into a nightmare shortly into the run. One of my shoes is far worse than the other, but both eventually have become loose. Backcountry support said to put an overhand knot in them - so much for the Quicklace. It's really hard to tie and even harder to get out (10 minutes or so digging through the mud, per shoe), but they don't come loose with a knot just above the slider. Backcountry has graciously offered a refund even though I've run through the mud with them more than once trying different methods to get them to stay relatively tight on my feet.
Working in a warehouse, walking miles every night on very rough floors, climbing racks, pushing heavy pallets, hot, cold, wet, dry these shoes take it. Camping, fishing it does not matter. These are the best shoes I have ever owned...
I love these shoes!!! The best trail shoe that I have ever worn. I have wide feet and these provide plenty of room for my toes. I did an adventure race last weekend in these shoes and was really impressed with the shoe's ability to shed water. I have had Salomon shoes before and now I have the perfect fit for my feet with the addition of a wider size.
While these are great on the trail, protecting you from all sorts of unpleasantness like rocks, they are horrible the minute you step off onto a paved surface. The lacing system takes a lot of trial and error to get the right tightness and they require a good bit of break in.
Are these shoes specifically for wide feet? "Salomon Men's XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 M+ Trail Running Shoes and give your wide feet some protection for miles "
Yes, The M+ version is the wider version of the XA Pro 3d Ultra.
Will you be getting any size 11s in soon?
More are expected within the next couple weeks. Once they have been received, they'll be available under the 'select options' drop-down menu. Keep checking back!
