  • Agile Chassis midsole combines extra-rebound cushioning layer with 3D+ Advanced Chassis that assists forefoot propulsion to power you through your stride and delivers joint-saving stability
  • TPU toe bumper protects your toes from trail hazards
  • Sole's flared skeleton creates plenty of surface area for the shoe to contact the ground as well as adding to the shoe’s stable ride

  • Fit:True to size

I've been running in these shoes for over a year now so I got plenty of use in them. Trust me these shoes are awesome. I cannot say anything negative about these shoes. They grip so well that you don't become a p_$$ when going down hill or jumping over obstacles. It's time to replace mine. I'm thinking of getting the Ultra Sense. What do you guys think should I or should I just stick to the same model?

Pretty awesome

I haven't run in awhile and was worried about my weak ankles and the stability of this shoe was perfect and ankles are fine.

They are durable and male me feel fast, so I am.

Lace system works well, and stores in the tongue out of the way. Never loosens.

Awesome shoes overall!!!

    My very first trail shoes. I bought then after several months of research. My concern was I over pronate and I need to use stability shoes. Running with Zoot shoes (which are the greatest road shoes ever!!!) since 2010. Salomon XT S-Lab 5 is actually between neutral and stability but it claims to have great stability. I called the manufacturer itself and they were gracious enough to help me with my decision so I went ahead and bought them. suggest buying it half size smaller than your regular shoes and so were they right. The shoes felt perfect right out of the box and stability sure is fantastic. I have ran around 15 trail miles with them already and I love this shoes, way worth the money. Awesome protection for toes and solid grid. I'm using them to run the Bera Mountain 50mi race in May. I'm 5.11", 160 lbs, male. I've been running for over 5yrs. I'm a marathoner and ultra marathoner.

    I'm Sold....

    Let's try to upload this review again....

    Me and the trail type I run:

    6-1, 197, 45 yrs old, 10 1/2 foot, low to mid volume. Sand and loose trails that mix into blue groove sand stone, some steep climbs (20 degree).

    For comparison, I also have had over the past few years three different Speedcross 2 and 3's with the GTX and the climashield. Also currently have the Fellcross.

    I am digging the stoke on the XT S-Lab 5! This shoe in comparison to the Fellcross is more stable, as it's a little bigger footprint underfoot. It's not nearly as "fast feeling" as the Fellcross, but more of a journeyman shoe. It's solid, stable and has good traction in most conditions. The Fellcross and Speedcross had incredible traction in loamy conditions, but suffered in rainy conditions on blue groove trails that became slick. Not so with the XT5. Last night it was raining and I tackled a 20 degree hill that's about a 1/4 mile, and it was getting loose. Going up was no issue as long as I picked my line carefully. On the return, I thought, "oh boy, here we go. Slip and fall time!" Not so...downhill breaking was better than expected, and they packed mud but it wasn't a huge issue. I could feel them getting heavier but still, the traction was good enough. I was surprised how well the shoe threw mud off the bottom.

    So far, very impressed with the shoe and it fits my style of slow going trail running better then the Fellcross. I don't feel the rock impact nearly as much as the Fellcross. Great shoe!
