Paint Peeled off in Single Use!

I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Size Bought:
5' 4"

I bought these shoes for my son's many adventures and he was very excited about them however, he only got to enjoy them one day! That's right, the paint came off the top front of the shoe. So disappointed! They are pretty comfy and my son liked the style so I will give it two stars for that. I will be returning them and looking for another type of shoe.

Not the best looking, but most comfortable!

I have three pairs because of how comfortable these shoes are, they don’t keep their shape unfortunately but they will be comfortable to wear. The particular green color is hard to match with regular clothes, but that’s just a minor compare to comfortability.

Second pair, great shoe

I use the Pulsars for outdoor work, lots of outdoor activity, and my first pair is still holding up fine, so much so that I ordered another identical pair for the coming year.

First trail running shoes

A nice look was my first choice, and that wrapped up feeling you get from wearing it is unforgettable. Love that feeling so much! Can't wait to take it hiking.

Comfort and cushioning

Longtime buyer of Speedcross 3-6 over the years. These offer way more cushioning, albeit not the aggressive traction, but these are perfect for walks and working out. So far durability is good.

Plush, comfortable and light

This is my first trail running shoe from Salomon. I have other road running shoes from New Balance and Saucony. I must say that this is probably the most comfortable running shoe that I have ever tried. The misdole is just right not too soft, but not hard as well.

So far so good!

I have worn these shoes for 7 or 8 walks of 3.5 - 4 miles, road and trail. I haven't been able to run in them yet since I pulled my hamstring and hurt my knee a couple of months ago. These shoes are comfortable to walk in and seem to be holding up well. Better grip on loose uneven terrain than I have experienced with other running shoes. I have had issues with blistering previously, predominantly along the transverse arch and specifically the mid met area. No such issues with these Pulsar Trails. Very pleased with the purchase thus far.

Comfortable and Sturdy

I run 6 miles, 3 times a week. These shoes are perfect for both moderate trails and asphalt. They are comfortable and give good support. I use the insoles that came with them but they are easily switched you want to use custom insoles. I've been using these shoes for a little over 1 month.
