Why We Like The Phantasm Running Shoe

Training our heart, lungs, and muscles to increase our speed is only half the battle. The other half comes from our shoes, and the Phantasm Running Shoe offers just the boost we need. Salomon's Energy Surge foam, Energy Blade toe, and rockered geometry set us up for success, blending their powers to provide scary-fast forward propulsion. The EVA-blend foam delivers springiness like never before, the rockered shape smooths out those forward motions, and the Energy Blade sends us flying on our toe-offs.

A little disappointing

I've used it several times
Size Bought:

Salomon shoes fit me really well. My feet are a bit on the narrow side and these are a good fit with a not too wide toe box. I am somewhat disappointed with, of all things, the lacing. They come with laces that are way (30 inches) too long. Slits instead of round holes were used so the laces were a challenge to change. Beyond that, the tongue is so flimsy it scrunches up when you tighten. they do look cool though.

WARNING - Used Shoes!

I returned this product before using it

I received a used pair of these shoes from Backcountry. In order to "fix" the issue according to Backcountry's said policies, I had to send in photographs to show that the shoes were used. Next, Backcountry wanted to charge me for a second pair of shoes and refund the money after I drove the old/used shoes to a FedEx location to ship them back. Backcountry will not provide at-home pickup or a discount on the replacement shoes to rectify their error. As such, i returned all items and will shop at Amanzon, REI and Dicks Sporting Goods to receive quality customer service. I have shopped at Backcountry for several years, but it is impractical to waste time and money on a business when there are competitors that can do it better.

Best shoes for the price

I bought theses bad boys when they were at 50% and they are the best shoes I ever had for the price. Feel super smooth and they run fast.

Crazy fast but too snug!

I love the energy blades but the heel counter is not well thought of. There's heel slippage and the toe box is too snug.

Comfort for feet issues.

I bought this phantasm hoping to solve my feet issues (faciitis), and it did solve my problem. I didn't feel the pain in my feet running using this shoes. Only the color of my issue since I need a black color for my reefing. Above all, this shoes is great.

Crazy fast but runs too tight

It's fast but there's heel slippage and too snug. It's hurting the lateral side of my toes.

A Great Daily Trainer

The Phantasm is a shoe with a lot of different road applications. It's worked great for me as an everyday easy run show, but also has enough life in it to pick up the pace and go long. If I'm not sure exactly what a particular run will bring, the Phantasm is always a safe choice.
