  • Welded Sensifit harness wraps the foot in a precise and secure fit
  • Ortholite sockliner combines a proprietary foam with an EVA heel cup for superior cushioning
  • Quicklace system offers easy on-off convenience and a more even, comfortable fit
  • Stretch garage on top of tongue tidily stows the lace system, while tongue cover keeps out debris
  • 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
  • Toe bumper protects your toes from trail hazards
  • Aggressive Contagrip sole offers secure traction on rough trails

Best running shoe I've owned in my life.

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

The only thing that I would change is the laces are a little too long and it feels like your shoe is untied sometimes when the pull strings hit the side of your shoe . But not that big of a deal

Great Kicks

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

Had a pair of XT Wings 2s and have worn them smooth, so I got the XT Wings 3s to replace them. I love how lightweight they are and how stable they are on ascents and descents. The mesh drains water well so your feet don't stay wet for very long when you splash through rivers and creeks- even up here in the Pac NW. I usually replace the insoles in all my athletic shoes due to a dropped arch in my right foot that usually gives me problems, but the Ortholite Insole on my XTWings2 and these give me all the support and control I need - an added bonus in my book. No shoe is going to be perfect in all conditions, but these are a great all around trail runner.

Amazing shoes!

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

The XT Wings 3 are the best shoes I've had on my feet. I also love the XA Pro 3D Ultra (not the GTX version) and am on my third pair of those.

I have discovered that I need pronation control because of constant shin splints. The XT Wings 3 have been the very best, in my case. I find that I also love to just wear them around the house, as they are so comfy and supportive.

I had written to Salomon about how much I love the XA Pro 3D Ultra but was looking for a lighter weight version. They recommended the XT Wings 3. I am very happy to have gone with their recommendation.

And to add.... These shoes are very well built, giving me the impression that they will last for quite a while.

Light, comfortable, decent grip

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

I wore these shoes for the first time this weekend on a short 2 mile hike. On the plus side they are very lightweight, have great cushioning and are comfortable shoes. Of course I love the Quicklace system and how quickly they lace up and how solidly they stay tied.
The one downside I had with these shoes was the grip on the bottom. I have been wearing the Speedcross 3 trail running shoes and have grown accustomed the the killer grip on the bottoms. My hike took me through mud and over snow, and I nearly fell on my face a few times with the XT Wings.
Great shoes for summer/dry hiking conditions but for slick trails I plan on sticking to the Speedcross 3 and their burly traction.

I'm on my second pair of these now, given how much I loved my first pair. They are comfy,solid. I love the speed lacing system- never had any issues.
Very fun shoe

Do they have high arch support?

Do they have high arch support?

Responded on

Yes, the XT Wings 3 have great, comfortable arch support, which is good for people like me who need that extra amount. It's not an extremely high arch but more so than some of the other Salomon models, IMO. They feel fantastic.

Not recommended for heavy duty wear

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Cushion is good and those shoes held up to a lot of abuse such as running and hiking for the first two months. Then the mesh started to wear away and tear at the toe. Now returning for lack of durability.

so here's the deal. I can't really classify...

Posted on

so here's the deal. I can't really classify myself as a real runner - on pavement I've done only 5 half marathons. On trail, only 2 halfs. My normal running routine is a couple times a week, some where between 3-9 miles. The rest of the time I am doing powerlifting and/or HIIT training. While I know all shoes are made for one specific sport, I am kind of looking for a shoe that will work in all three arenas: some trail running, some pavement, and some HIIT training. Any recommendations

Responded on

These shoes' tread will wear quickly if you run on pavement with them.

Super light!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These are so light it's ridiculous, they are comfortable and perfect for cross training.

Awesome for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Amazing shoes, used them for the first 460 miles of the AT (Springer to Damascus) and have zero complaints other than I wore them out!

Lee, What'd your pack weigh? I an really wanting to try the trail running shoe for backpacking, my pack weighs in around 35-40 tops. whatd ya think?

Responded on

Sorry for the slow response. Mine was 30-35 lbs depending on how many days of food I was carrying and I had no problems with supporting that weight in these shoes. I love trail running shoes for backpacking in everything but the most off trail routes.
