Matthew R.wrote a review of Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 M+(Wide) Trail Running Shoe - Men's on March 16, 2012
These are the best hiking shoes I have ever owned; I'm on my third pair, and I use them for everything from easy day hikes to 15+ mile days to overnights with a 30 pound pack. They're so comfortable I don't bother bringing camp shoes. A couple of tips: Superfeet Green insoles add just the right amount of support and stiffness for my tastes. Also I use a light trail running gaiter to keep the junk out and to cover the lace system, (The tongue pocket is kind of a pain). Third, I use Rocky Gore tex socks and just walk right through creek crossings; they drain quite quickly. My only complaints are price and durability. I go through about a pair of year, but that's the price you pay for such a lightweight shoe.
