Which is better for me, Solomon XT Wings...

Posted on

Which is better for me, Solomon XT Wings or XA PRO 3D: Planning an AT thru 2013, very heavy guy+ 45lb pack (need the weight to pack enuff food!), total 300lbs on feet but big shoe, size 13 to spread the load.
1: Need quick drying shoe, as they will get wet every day.
2: Need support.
3: Need durability.
Thanks for any advise.

For hiking with a pack, I would recommend one of Salomon's hiking shoes instead, especially for the load you'll be placing on them. The Wings Sky GTX 2 is the same chassis as the XT Wings except in a high-top boot. It will be more supportive, more durable, and be totally waterproof to your ankles. http://www.backcountry.com/salomon-wings-sky-gtx-hiking-boot-mens
Happy traisl!

As a through hiker I would have to go with the XA Pro, I have done gortex and non on the trail and would say that non gortex is the way to go. I hiked the trail in barefoot shoes but had a few friends that got around 1,000 out of the XA Pros. Your feet will be getting wet every day no matter if you have gortex shoes with gators or just regular trail runners. As far as your weight, you will loose a little off your pack and your body. I got down to a 20 LBS pack and dropped about fifteen pounds on my body. Hope this was helpfull.

Have a good hike man.

Great shoes -on trails

I have just restarted running at 55--these shoes are great on a trail-They feel a little soft to me running on hard surfaces. I wore them on an 11 mile 14 er hike and they were great for this-and they are spectacular at griping running down hill. A friend who had some felt the heels stuck out too far and could catch on rocks but I haven't felt this. My heels are a little sore but I think that it is from just getting back into the sport. The sale price mad them a great buy

Flat Feet

I have very flat feet. After hours and hours of research I settled on these shoes. Unfortunately, they hurt my feet from the moment I put them on. I even purchased SuperFeet inserts to try to help...no luck. They shoes were very nice, just didn't work for my flat feet.

Salomon changed the shoe color some

See the attached photo as you'll actually be getting this shoe with the yellow laces and slightly different coloring in the side panel strips. However I actually like the changes so I'm keeping them.

As with just about all Salomon shoes I've owned they fit comfortably right out of the box. Looking forward to many happy miles in these. Thanks Backcountry for the awesome price and free 2 day shipping!

Happy feet

Second pair of XT wings, and they just don't disappoint! Light weight with great cushion, support, and breath-ability.

Salomon's are great shoes.

The shoes are perfect straight out of the box. There was zero break in and they felt great. This is my second pair of Salomons in the past year. I have approximately 80 miles on these and they fit like new. I really like the quick lace system and they breathe very well. I completely trust this brand and will continue to buy them.

Love these

Some of the most comfortable running shoes I've owned!

Flat feet, is this the trail running shoe...

Flat feet, is this the trail running shoe for me?

Responded on

I am not the shoe expert, but I can say I have flat feet, and this line of shoes is my favorite, and works well for me. If they don't work, send them back and try something else. The beauty of Backcountry.com.

Awesome shoes!!!

went ahead and ordered 10.5 just like my N B's and after my first run I am very impressed. These shoes fit like a glove with exceptional support and balance. Don't look now but I have a new favorite pair of running shoes.

My favorite shoes, but...

I have the XT Wings (not 2) that I got off SAC for a screamin deal. Definitely my favorite pair of shoes that I own. Theyve got countless trail miles, some road, and tons of everyday and gym use. They can truly do anything.
They've been supportive, light, and nimble, but I hate to retire them for something as silly as breaking the lowest outside eyelit. I like them so much that I'm giving them 5 stars even though they ate through a pair of laces and broke an eyelit after a year and a half. It looks like the left shoe is about to do the same too. I decided to upgrade to the XR Crossmax Guidance because of the pronation control and reinforced eyelits, but I still use these shoes daily.

Update: I retired my Crossmax's after a few months because they just did not work for me. Bought another pair of XT Wings 2 and love them just the same!! Seriously feel like I can do anything in these shoes.

Excellent Everyday Shoe

I mostly use these as everyday shoes (I have the Goretex version, too). They are extremely comfortable and supportive. The Salomon lacing system works amazingly well in terms of fitting the shoe snugly around all areas of the foot. This version has a slimmer fit than the GTX version; not quite as comfortable for my feet, but still excellent.

Love the shoes

I was hooked on the Salomon XT Wings comfort since the first time I put them on. I'm 6'2" 185lb and found the shoes to be a good balance between some of the minimalist shoes on the market that felt like wooden dutch clogs and the moonboots I've seen others wearing at some of the local trail run races. Since purchasing the XT's I've put over 1,000 miles on them including the Speedgoat 50K trail run at Snowbird Ski Resort in Salt Lake City, UT this past weekend. After this much mileage on the shoes they're beat up...but to my amazement they actually held up thru the race. The race has some extreme conditions including nasty downhills on gravelly and rocky trails, running thru and down rivers, and negotiating some sweet glacial glissades. Due to the above average snow year, parts of the trails were actually rivers...and I had no blisters after running 31 miles in wet feet. For me these are the shoes of choice as long as Salomon doesn't mess to much with the design or price. Each of my pairs has ripped in the same place - up near the joint of my big toe...but other than that the shoes have held up well. Shoes run a bit small...I'm normally a 10.5 but wear an 11 in the salomons. Love the lacing system..quick to adjust. Given the stink that they've now accumulated, my wife has hidden them in the garage somewhere or I'd show you a picture. They stink, look nasty, and the entire toe box is about to rip thru...but after this many miles and hard pounding ultramarathons can't bring myself to give them up. Have another race this saturday and need to find a new pair of shoes and to be honest...I'm getting lost in all the Salomon derivatives of the original XT shoe and pricing seems to be skyrocketing. I love the shoes...hope I can find similar ones to purchase.

no more running scared

Got 'em on Monday and have run them every day since, both trail and pavement. I've torn up one ankle badly and sprained the sh*t out of the other a few times, and these are the first shoes I've worn since my surgery (fifteen years ago) that really feel secure. I never thought I would be able to stop running scared. I love them. No twitches, no soreness. If your form is great, you're light-footed and secure, you might prefer a faster shoe with more feel (Speedcross in Salomon or S-Labs for the truly hard-core or deluded). But if you're a normal, beat-up guy who just wants to run, these just might be your sole-mates.

Sweetness

Bought these for mountain biking as they have a laceless system. Had them in all types of conditions ranging from heavy mud to being completely submerged, hose em off and toss em on the boot dryer and they look like new. Great support for everyday wear. Great grip for biking. All around great shoe. Next time I'm getting the gortex variety.

Where have you been all my life?

First run and already i know these are the ones I live in Australia and these cost $245. The exchange rate is in our favour at the momen too - and such a shame that I couldnt purchase them through backcountry. I do all my gear reviews here and am fed up with being ripped off in OZ! Free up trade. I would love to purchase all my gear through you!!

Great shoes!!

new love

Haven't felt like this about a pair of running shoes since my first pair of Huaraches circa 1992. I believe these are better and I hope they last longer. Not sure I would want to take these on a serious mountain trail, they are real thin around the toes. Road running and cross country running seem to be a perfect fit. These breathe awesomely, on take off I had the sensation of little fans blowing on my feet with every stride. I think the boys and girls of Salomon broke into my place while I was sleeping and took my measurements the night I ordered these, perfect fit. I generally wear a 9.5 or 10 depending upon the brand, 10s were right on. Great traction better than the XA PRO 3D ULTRA and they don't feel flat like the ULTRAs.

I will be picking up the Gortex version of these for cold/wet weather running.

How do Salomon's go in terms of width? I often buy sneakers 1/2 size too big to accommodate the need for extra width.

Responded on

My experience, they are slightly wider than average. I never find myself needing to size up with Saloman where other shoes I typically need to.

Responded on

I have to disagree. I think you'll find pretty much consensus that Solomons run narrow. Not sure whether sizing up will give you a proper fit, however.

Responded on

I found this version to be just slightly wider than previous ones. I have a narrowish foot and they are still fine for me, so probably size up unless you like 'em snug.
