A little bit of everything.
Most days, you're never quite sure where your time outside will take you. A long day in front of a computer screen might mean an evening trail run at a blistering pace is just the thing you need, but exploring new places on the weekend may result in fast-paced hiking and a little jogging downhill. The point is, you don't have to have a trail shoe for each activity if you already own the Salomon XA Pro 3D.
This sturdy, versatile shoe is a mainstay in the brand's line for a reason. It adapts as well to a quick tempo run as it does to a day hike with a QuickLace design providing a secure fit in a hurry, and a stable EVA midsole absorbing impact on longer days. Capable outsoles with a lug profile designed for wet days give the shoe the all-wheel drive traction in case the skies open up too, making sure you stay on your feet no matter what the day has in store.

- Q & A
Great shoe, tough tread!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I purchased these as an all around shoe for working in a fulfillment center and also hitting the trails. The shoes are very comfortable and I love the quick lace system. The toe box has ample room. The tread is aggressive and helps me maintain grip on wet cement and slick fulfillment floors. This shoe has held up for an 18 hour day without making my feet tired. The only complaint/downside is that the toe box is reinforced to help with trails. However, because of the stiff reinforcement, the right shoe rubs on my little toe and makes is uncomfortable. I've found wearing seamless socks helps with this problem.
