Run faster over rockier ground.

Made for your morning run up mountain trails, the Salomon Men's XA Pro 3D Trail Running Shoe offers incredible durability, unbeatable traction, and cushioning so supple you'll have to look twice to believe you're on a scree field. An off-kilter asymmetrical Quicklace system takes the pressure off the top of your foot and lets you tighten the laces with a single tug. Quick drying and wickedly breathable, this husky trail shoe trounces trails and spits out unworthy bits of gravel as you get your mountain-goat on.

The mesh on top lets your foot breathe while providing a stalwart barrier against clods of hardened dirt. Sensifit and Endofit get a grasp on your foot and won't let go until you're loosening the laces with a beer within reach. Asymmetrical laces follow the natural contours of your paw and give your foot and ankle free range of motion. The 10mm drop protects heel strikers from brutish bits of boulder without forcing midfoot strikers to alter their gait. The 3D Advance Chassis system minimizes side-to-side rolling while smoothing the transition from footstrike to toe-off.

Even though the XA Pro keeps a low profile, the OrthoLite insert comes out and ample room remains if you choose to use a custom-molded insole. After one run, you'll become an EVA evangelical. Lightweight and soft, the EVA midsole mitigates your footstrike impact and offers a mere hint of stability. A protective toe cap lets you kick through piles of leaves without worry, and the Contagrip sole is downright greedy when it comes to grabbing the ground.

Awesome Shoes

    I bought these shoes randomly enough to wear to work. I go hiking and mountain biking a lot so I figured I would get a dual purpose out of them. I work as a paramedic and wear boots everyday. But with the weather being hotter than middle earth here in Georgia I wanted to get some shoes that were durable and cooler for my tootsies. These shoes have amazing arch support as well as withstand getting ran over by stretcher wheels on the daily. I will definitely be getting another pair next time I see them go on sale.

    Great for hiking

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: 9.5

    These shoes combine the light weight and low profile of a running shoe with the durability of a hiking boot. Before buying these, I hiked in running shoes. A light shoe that breathes well is more important to me than the added support of a hiking boot. But the problem was that most running shoes didn’t hold up to scrambling over boulders, maneuvering over tree roots at weird angles, traversing little creeks, or other variable terrain. These shoes solved that problem. The toe piece and heel are made of a synthetic/rubber material that offers better protection. The bottom of the sole has better traction. And over all the sole is more sturdy and the shoe is just tougher. Yet it still breathes like a running shoe, and it's just as light.

    Perfect for seniors.

    They are listed as a running shoe, but for me at age 75, I needed a light weight, very comfortable and stable trail hiking shoe. These fit the bill with excellent tread design and support. And they fit perfectly right out of the box. After 25 plus miles on them so far, I am very pleased with them.

    NEW shoes

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Bought these for my son but he didn't like them. Lucky we are the same size so I took them instead of returning them. Great shoes. love the lacing and comfort.

    Nice Shoe

      Product was what I wanted although I was surprised that I developed blisters on both heels breaking them in. After a couple of days and lots of moleskin, they finally broke in. Now they are comfortable, but I was surprised by the rquired breakin period.

      Trail shoe

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size

      I have had about 10 of this shoe and will always buy more. They are great for trails due to the awesome grip. I also love the draw stings instead of having to lace them up. BUY BUY BUY !

      I purchased these shoes for my dad - below is his review
      ______________________________________________________

      I’ve generally been a La Sportiva, Merrel, and Salomon shoe person. Each shoe has had its own set of problems but the Salomon XA Pro, for what it was designed for, has been a great sturdy shoe. No problems with the pull laces coming loose or the tongue moving. Great, true to size fit for my high arch narrow foot.

      Salomon footwear is on-point

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
      • Fit: True to size

      I bought these shoes as part of a "footcare-package" for my pops: hiking shoes, boots (Salomon Quest 4D) , and nice socks. The ultimate bday gift. He is ALWAYS raving about the big difference between these shoes and his old Merrell Moabs. They aren't as ugly as some people say, in my opinion-- I think they look great.

      One of the features I really like is the design of the heel cup. Lots of shoes have a flat, wide area for the heel with a 90-degree angle between the sole and upper.. These XA Pros are narrower and contoured for your heel, so they really cradle your foot. The result is a super comfy and secure fit. Despite having a narrower sort of profile here, my dad's wide feet have no problem with the 3D width.

      To top everything off, these shoes are among the most durable in their class. Pops wears them hiking, around town, and doing remodeling projects; after a few months they still look brand new.

      XA PRO 3D

      I have been buying this trail shoe for year, Salamon. What's up with the new tongue design??? You have made what was a great shoes into a disaster, I can hardly get them on!!! Please go back to a tongue that works, and a shoe that doesn't take minutes to get into , with a sho tree!

      I bought these and the X ultra prime, wear an 11.5 but ordered size 12s for toe room on downhills. If your going to be in rocky scrabble the xa 3d chassis are good, if the terrain isn't as tough I prefer the X ultra prime, more flexible and lighter. However both shoes fit well are comfortable and work fine. Used in mountains on Appalachian trail several times.

      Great Summer Hiking Shoe

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: True to size
      • Size Bought: 9.5
      • Height: 5'10"
      • Weight: 175lbs

      As my first pair of true trail running shoes, I am thoroughly impressed with this shoe. I basically just got tired of hiking in blown out skate shoes, and decided something stiffer and more supportive would make my hikes a lot more enjoyable for both me and my spine 10 years into the future. I have had enough heavy hiking boots in my day and I have never loved any of them. The breathable mesh upper on this shoe is ideal for summer hikes. Sure its not water proof, but an hour in the sun and your shoes are dry to the bone. Stiff sole makes hiking over rough terrain a thing of ease and the support keeps you feeling good all day long. As I said, my first real trail running shoe, but I'm glad I took the leap!

      Love and hate, but definitely 1 star

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times
      • Fit: Runs small
      • Size Bought: 14
      • Height: 6'3"
      • Weight: 195lbs

      Good: Beautiful.
      Bad: Fit is very snug, especially in hindfoot.

      This is a tough one to write. I did a lot of research prior to buying these and they get top marks and seemed to be worth the cost. I was recommended to try Salomon as an alternative to Innov8 which I have liked in the past.

      I live overseas at an FPO address and usually get things 2-3 weeks after they're shipped. I hike/walk a lot, and I was looking for a shoe with a moderately aggressive tread that was lightweight and fast-drying for extended multi-day trail use. These arrived after 3 wks. They are really nice looking shoes. The lacing design is really great and the construction seems pretty solid. I love em', right!

      But they're torture to wear. I do not have a very unusually shaped foot. I wear size 13 but will buy a 14 if I'm going to do downhill running so my toes don't get blisters on the end (the reason I couldn't wear my last pair of Innov8s). This was one of the few pairs Salomon had in size 14. I have a moderately high arch and sometimes I will have tight fit in the midfoot with new shoes but never anything that some wearing in and loosening of laces won't fix. I don't have a wide foot, I've never bought anything but size D (medium) width and I've never sent a shoe back for being too narrow. However, these are VERY tight in the midfoot and hindfoot and cause a pain by putting unusual pressure on the tarsals and heelbox. They are very narrow and form fitting with an arch support that pressed uncomfortably even on my high arch. The result is that after 2 wks of trying to break them in, taking out the inserts, adjusting the laces, they hurt worse than ever. Fit in the toe box is fine. Even stranger, they hurt worse sitting and walking than running. Yes, they hurt so bad that I can't even keep them on during lunch out, I kept having to take them off.

      If they fit I would give them 5 stars. They're beautiful, they lace really quickly and snug, they seem very durable (during a two week trial on road not trail they show very little signs of use). But now I'm 4.5 wks out, backcountry will not take returns greater than 30 days, and I'm out over $100 for a pair of shoes that I would rather wear anything (flip flops) before wearing these. Maybe I'll put them on a shelf.

      Finally, as far as overall impression goes, these are bulkier and heavier than Innov8's Talon-X, my last pair. They look like they would hold up slightly better (more rigid insole) but dry slower and feel much heavier. I hope that helps your decision-making.

      If you have anything other than a narrow hind/midfoot, buy these with caution and give them a good trial quickly and plan to send them back.

      I concur with Will B. I've worn a 10 Regular my entire adult life (I'm just shy of 50) and I've never needed a wide size in my shoe, ever. I picked up a pair of these at the Fort Benning PX in 10 regular and they felt good so I bought them. After wearing them routinely I discovered that they rub the outside corners of my big toes and I haven't even tried running in them yet. I wish I would have known that they are on the narrow side when I purchased them!

      Shrinkage

        Here is a side by side comparison of a 7 month old XA Pro 3D and a brand new one. You can see that there was some shrinkage which lead to pressure points on the outsides of my little toes.

        I have a pair of the Speedcross 3s and the same thing happened, only I can barely even put them on now. I like the venting especially on hot summer days, so I went with the non GTX shoes.

        Shrinkage

        Came back for seconds

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: True to size

        I ignored reports that I needed to buy shoes a full size larger for long distance hiking but absolutely loved the weight and support of my first pair on a week hike on the AT. So, I came back minus one toenail (four straight days of rain and double socks and my feet didn't fit my normal shoe size) and bought a second pair a full size larger. I will keep the first for dayhikes .



        This was my first experience with trailrunners for backpacking and I will never go back to heavy boots. I love that I can easily adjust the laces while hiking and traction was good on everything wet.



        I do plan to upgrade the insole to Superfeet for added support before my next week hike.

        Rock Solid

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 9.5

        The XA Pro 3d Trail running shoes fit a unique category, in that they're not a lightweight minimalist trail shoe nor are they along the lines super tough and rugged hiking boot. They fit somewhere in the middle as a shoe you can use for trail runs, hikes and everything in between. Solid grip for wet weather runs, sturdy enough for climbing around on some rocks, and light enough to find a rhythm while you run. Great one quiver shoe.

        Good shoes, yet again from Salomon

        • Fit: True to size
        • Size Bought: 10.5

        Personally, Salomon shoes fit my feet best, so I pretty much always buy Salomon shoes. I've been using the pro-3D line for awhile, ever since Appalachian Trail attempt saw me put a thousand miles on a pair and only had to toss them due to the smell (can't fault Salomon for that). My only gripe with the new version is the tongue, which seems to try to wrap too far around the top of my feet, which makes me have to adjust the fit after sliding my feet in, and doesn't seem to add to the quality of the fit. Other than that, solid fit, good support, and another well made shoe.
