Description

Comfort, grip, and no more untied shoelaces.

Unlike some kids, your boy spends his time outside building forts, jumping bikes, and climbing trees, which is why he needs the Salomon Boys' XR Mission J Hiking Shoe. The Sensiflex fit provides the optimal blend of foot hold and freedom of movement while the Contagrip sole gives him the necessary traction for bike pedals and muddy trails. Plus, untied shoelaces are a thing of the past with the quick and easy Breakaway lace system.

  • Highly breathable mesh uppers keep feet comfortable and dry
  • Sensifit lace system wraps around the foot for a secure slip-free fit
  • Sensiflex provides a secure hold while allowing freedom of movement in the forefoot
  • Breakaway lace system is simple, quick, and secure
  • Molded EVA midsole provides cushion and flexibility without compromising stability
  • Synthetic toe cap provides foot protection on rocky trails
  • Contagrip outsole utilizes a mix of densities and lug configurations to provide a secure grip

Great Shoe, Ridiculous Laces

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got these for my kids for hiking and a little trail running here and there. The shoes are awesome--great traction, sturdy and supportive. They have hiked in them for hours and their feet stayed nice and happy. After just a couple wears though the laces were done--completely useless. I put regular laces in so they could still wear the shoes. I hope Salomon will fix this issue and put together a great kids shoe.

Loved them until...

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

The shoes were very comfortable according to my 6 year old and totally in style but the lace broke only after a month. Also the laces were really long. Hate to say I will not be buying them again.

love this shoe but...

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

These are really great shoes - comfy, good looking, rugged, supportive. My 8 yr old son loves them but the laces broke after about the 4th use. Will buy again in hopes of the laces holding up. This has happened to two other pair of Salomons our family has ordered this year. I'm wondering if Salomon changed the lace formula. I tried calling Salomon directly but kept getting disconnected. Other than the laces, as mentioned, these shoes are bomber.

Kids love them

We bought these shoes for both of our boys, ages 9 and 7. They are interested in doing some light trail running and longer hikes. They are nice and light with a good tread on the bottom and seem to provide just the right amount of support. I like that they aren't too clunky, like a traditional hiking shoe. Run true to size and have a roomy toe box.
