Here's what others have to say...

I am 300 lbs and just starting to work...

I am 300 lbs and just starting to work out. Would these shoes be good for me on cement ground? And will they stay together? CL

Responded on

Hey Carl,

Its better to use road shoes on trail rather than the other way around. Trail shoes typically have a softer more tacky rubber for better traction on trail and if you bring them onto cement or pavement then you are going to wear the soles out rather quickly.

Might I suggest a pair of Hoka One One's that will really help get you up to speed by providing the right amount of support and cushioning while the rockered midsole guides your stride and helps you develop a more natural gait.

Love these shoes

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

I bought a pair of these a year ago and have put in over 1 million steps in them. So comfortable that I wear them everyday in addition to hiking in them. Ive never had a blister or anything except extreme comfort for my feet.
I wasn't sure how I would like the quick lace system, but It has become a favorite of mine. I am still able to get the snug fit I need where I need it.
Love the gore-tex rainproofing. They still look great and almost like new.

Quality decreasing sharply

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

This used to be my favourite shoe for running on soft terrain (woods...). Not anymore. This shoe is not he same it used to be 5 or 6 years ago. My first pair lasted for 4 years, gave me no blisters, was very comfortable and gave me great stability. It was never the best shoe for running on hard terrain, because cushoning was never good, a bit on the thin side. New pair gave me constant blisters on the heel, heel was slipping out and after a few months inner fabric on the heel was already torn. In a year you get to the plastic on the heel. The sole also almost dissapeared in a year. Not buying them again. They are still very stabile and lacing system is great, however quality is not hte same anymore.

So this happened the other day - the fabric eyeley broke. Per my review, I have had them for 28 months; this shouldn't be happening...along with the other issues outlined. Yeah, they are comfortable as hell right out of the box, but this is ridiculus - too many points of failure.

Best shoes I have ever owned!

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size

Im not going to lie I am a boot guy. However a pair of boots in 80-90 degree summer weather is not the best thing. I like these shoes because when I wear them I feel like I'm getting the same comfort/protection that a pair of boots gives me. And when I say these shoes are comfortable I mean it! I plan on using these as my casual shoe for when the weather gets hot this Summer. Im also planning on bringing these out west with me in July. Over all quality is incredible and I would not have gotten these if they weren't on sale here:) I am proud to say I am now a Salomon fan!

Good shoe, not great; 3.8765 stars

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

I bought a pair of these about 28 months ago, and they have been good shoes. Pricey as hell, but good, not great. Granted, I have worn them almost daily for the occasional trail run, hike, and general go-to athletic shoe. The lacing system is solid & convenient and has shown very little wear,with no give. They are still waterproof with no cracking where the soles meet the uppers, but there is quite a bit of wear at the point where the heel/achilles tendon meet the shoe. The ankles are fraying big time, and I can see that being a big problem soon. There are also some micro-cracks in the material just past the arch towards the toe box. Again, no leaks, but I can see issues coming from different areas of the shoe. The tread is highly worn, as well. I would give it four stars, but for the kind of money I spent I can't. I wish there were fractions - it's really a 3.8 - 3.9 shoe. But alas....

Not the same shoe

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
  • Fit: Runs small

I had a previous pair of Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 GTX (what a mouthful that is!) shoes. They were the best trail running shoes ever. When they went on sale, I decided to buy another pair. They are not the same shoe. The bed is much narrower - a claim made about other Salomon shoes as well - and just feel tight. Backcountry should inform buyers of these kind of changes made by the manufacturer before transacting the order.

Get these over Synapse WP

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am ordering another pair of these after trying the Synapse WP. I have had these for almost 2 years and they are great. Look forward to another pair. I have hiked all over Colo and UT with this with numerous 10 + mile hikes in them.... Amazing shoes.

Great trail shoe

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

Planning on using on future Appalachian Trail hike. I went size up for the hike because of feet swelling on the long hike. Shoes are light and waterproof. Couldn't ask for a better shoe!

lose waterproofness

I'm Disappointed Brand

Very nice design, nice pattern, but the materials, manufacturing is very regular. I have these shoes just a year and half ago and hardly use them.
The sole comes off very easy. It trozan easy. Not perform well in wet soils. It slides and falls easy one. Too bad such a recognized brand through this.

Loved the shoe

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

They keep my feet warm because they allow good air flow* My feet stay dry because of the waterproofing *They keep me standing excellent support and traction* Kevlar laces are perfect. I have had three pair, just wished the soles did not delaminate in a year . Yet the two year Solomon warranty keeps me satisfied, but it is getting old.

Not the same shoe as before.

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

This is my second pair and I am disappointed. The build quality of the shoe is far less than the pair before. It has worn through the material by the laces in under a year which never happened to my first pair. The lace system inevitably begins to fail over time and will not stay tight.

I plan to look elsewhere for waterproof shoes after this most recent experience.

Not the one I had grown fond of....

I concur with the fit and blister commentary. I had a pair of these, purchased three (3) years ago, which were virtually perfect. The new ones, which I am returning, seem to be produced by a different vendor. The upper heel cup is much less stiff, and tends to collapse. The achilles rubbing, causing abrasions and blisters, is intolerable. This is a shame, because the previous pair served me well.

Awesome for everything, except running

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

First off, in comparison to the Salomon SpeedCross 3 Climashield shoe, These fit seemingly wider and I think more true to size. These shoes are great, they have good tread, the goretex liner is killer, and keeps you bone dry. For hiking and approaches they have plenty of support, and are even awesome for walking to class on wet days. However, has a running shoe- there are many better options. These shoes are on the heavier side of things, and feels "clunky" if you while running. It may be just my opinion, but these are definitely not my dedicated running shoe.

Not for Low profile ankles and tendons

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

Great shoe if it fits your foot right. Unfortunately my ankle is too low and constantly rubs on the neck of the shoe causing terrible rubbing and ulcers on my fibula condyle. Aside from that solid shoe great quality and cool lacing system. My only negative is that it is really heavy so not good for someone concerned about weight.

Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 GTX Shoes

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

Gone are days when your 10 miles into a trail run, you just hit your runners high and then suddenly you notice one or both of your shoes have become untied. Nothing brings progress to a halt like stopping. After tying your shoe laces it always feels harder to get back into the groove and it seems like your chasing what you felt before you stopped. When you put these shoes on and tighten them not only do they stay snug around your feet as a whole reducing friction, the cause of annoying blisters, they stay that way. These shoes in particular can be used for anything from backpacking for people that want a sturdy supportive breathable shoe that don't like boots to marathons. It is a shoe that looks good and performs even better. Salomon has cornered the shoe industry in my opinion and due to it's sheer innovation and manufacturing quality. For most people you will wear yourself out before these shoes do.

I like 'em

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I used them as everyday shoes and for backpacking trips (I don't like boots!). They offer better arch support than the same model I purchased about four years ago (yes, it was time for a new pair!). They held up just fine over 40 miles of rocky and sometimes swampy trails. My feet felt fine after walking over rocks for hours and hours, and they had no leaks while walking though minor water and swampy areas. I don't really like the pull laces, and I found with my last pair they tended to wear through the fabric near the toe. So, I plan to put a regular set of laces on the shoe, but that's no big deal. My feet are a bit wide, and these fit fine.

Great shoe,but...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I got my pair about a year and a half ago and they were great for a while. These are my everyday shoes and also for hiking/mtn. biking. After about a year, it's almost as if someone hit a self-destruct button. The sole started to split from the upper and some other minor rips here and there. Overall, they were a great shoe.....just until they gave out. Beware.
