A hearty bowl of awesome.
Just like how you chow down on a hearty bowl of chili after a long, cold run, the Salomon Men's X-Mission 3 Trail Running Shoe gobbles crusty trails for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Built to crush the inclines and ensure steady footing on the descent, this reimagined trail runner features a dual compound Contagrip outsole with both high abrasion and wet traction rubber. Strategically placed lugs and mutli-density tread give you stability, all-surface grip, and long lasting performance.
The breathable open mesh and Sensifit design provide a comfortable, locked down fit that minimizes friction hot spots and unsavory blisters. Salomon's Quicklace drawcord adjustment system lets you easily adjust to changing terrain, while Sensiflex technology supports a natural foot flex for comfort and performance.

seconds on them
Bought as a gift for a family member who'd owned them before. Back for a round two must mean they are doing something right. He says he's always thought they were really comfortable and held up a long time.

Firefighter loves em'
I got these for my husband so he could start training for fire season! He loves them! He actually won't take them off they have amazing support for even just wearing on a day to day basis and he loves the ankle support as well. Thinking about picking him up another pair!

This shoe is perfect. I got this as a gift for my brother. He loves how light and flexible they are. His favorite part is the mesh toe that allows for great ventilation. I myself, have the women's version and i love it!

light, good support, super comfortable
Love these shoes. Lacing system makes it much easier to get on and off quickly. They have good ankle support, are very comfortable and lightweight. Unlike most shoes the color is discrete which makes them good for wearing around the office.

I got these as a gift for my brother and this is what he had to say: These shoes are like slippers! Very comfortable and offer good support for running. The toe box is a little loose feeling, but they do not feel sloppy. I would recommend for people with wider feet.

These Salomons are good looking and super comfortable. They run a little bit Small, I had to get a 1/2 size bigger than I normally wear.

The X-Mission 3's have performed beautifully. I have used these as my primary hiking and trail running shoe this summer season. The ContaGrip doesn't lack grip or stability in rough or wet terrains and the Quicklace system makes them easy to tighten up or loosen in given circumstances. I typically wear a 10-10.5 and purchased the 10 in these are they fit great. Overall I definitely recommend!

Great all around shoe
The his shoe gives the right combination of weight, traction, cushion and durability. I am a repeat user of these trail shoes. Other shoes are too soft and unstable on the trail and/or slippery. These bad boys stick to the ground and provide the right balance between cushion and performance. My feet are not tired after long runs and yet I feel very stable and glued to the trail. Given the lightness they work fine if you have to run on a road to get to the trail..

I am NOT a runner.
(Got this as a gift for my brother -- Here's what he has to say!) I prefer trail runners as my lightweight hikers. I cannot give any feedback as to how they perform as running shoes, but I CAN give feedback as to how they fit, feel, and function. I just got these to replace a pair of XR Mission 1 Salomons (an earlier generation of this shoe) that have been my go-to hikers for four years. I love Salomons because they generally fit my feet like a glove. My foot is just about as average as it gets. Average width, average to slightly high arch, and Salomons have always fit well. These are no exception. They felt familiar right out of the box. I like the new tread pattern on these compared to the XR's, and they feel a little lighter but slightly stiffer in the sole. It's hard to say how they will break in as they get wear, but they're comfy and functional for what I need them for. And if anyone is unfamiliar with the kevlar chord quicklace, you shouldn't be... it's a game changer.

Best Running Shoes I've owned
I love these shoes, they fit my feet perfectly. I run about 50/50 trail to road and these work really well on both. I won't claim to be a running fanatic so I haven't logged a huge number of miles on these yet, but so far these look about the same as when I bought them. If you have a narrow foot with a high arch, these are the shoes for you.

A great distance shoe for a trail where a road shoe would be sufficient but you want a little more support and protection

Bought these as a gift for my buddy. Loved the fit around the heel of the shoe. Also was blown away by how easy and comfortable the quicklace is. Walked them around the house a bit and fell in love with them.

OK, not great for my purposes
Summary - great, lightweight shoe for fire roads and sandy trails. Not so great on rocky or uneven terrain. I use them for running on marked trails in the east bay hills of San Francisco. The trails are well maintained, but single track and fairly rugged in places. Pro: lightweight Great, grippy sole Fits my wide feet pretty well The lacing system works well Con: Pretty flexible at the forefoot and not much torsional stiffness - not great on rocky or heavily rooted trails The green is really ugly The soles are so grippy that they occasionally catch when going over tree roots.

Narrow toe box
Strong sole and solid lacing system. Grippy with great tread. Tongue stays in place. Toe box is a little too narrow for me. Insoles leave a little to be desired.

Do very well with wide feet. I have large and wide feet, and these shoes seem to be more comfortable out of the box than any other trail running shoes I have tried(Brooks, New Balance). Those shoes did well, but were not as immediately comfortable as the Salomon’s. The sole is very wide at the heal and forefoot, providing great stability, I use these as my primary backpacking/hiking shoe. I also like the quick lace system, no laces wearing out or becoming untied.

I've been wearing xr missions for about 2 years and love them! They were super durable, comfortable, and functional. The main differences I see from the xr mission to the x mission is the sole is different, it doesn't have the big pad on the upper right like the xr but I can't feel much of a difference with it not there. Also it seems to be a tad narrower. And lastly they are substantially lighter, especially on the feet, major difference. These shoes are awesome and I highly recommend.

will you be able to use a custom orthotics with this shoe

Jason, You would be able to remove the insole and use a custom one no problem. Some custom insoles will change the support of the shoe.
