Why We Like The XA Pro 3D V8 GTX Shoe

The Salomon XA Pro 3D V8 GTX Shoe is a versatile trainer that readies us for race day. It's a do-it-all performer that we wear everywhere from race day to rainy day hikes.

GORE-TEX gives it reliable waterproofing fit for muddy trails, and the minimally-cushioned EnergyCell midsole focuses on stability to keep you sure-footed, whether the trail is muddy or full of rocks. Contragrip rubber gives solid purchase in alpine terrain so feel free to run up to higher altitudes and back; whatever it takes to perform your best on race day.

  • Training shoe readies you for races going up and down mountains
  • GORE-TEX membrane keeps out moisture without packing heat
  • Contragrip outsole offers traction on muddy trails and slick rock
  • Protective toe cap guards the forefoot from unexpected roots
  • Mesh upper delivers breathable airflow and comfort in the heat
  • Midsole chassis adds stability for uneven ground and loose trails
  • Item #SALZ950

Not Good XA Pro 3D V8 GTX Shoe

Not good !!! Have always owned Salomon XA Pro 3D Trail, but they changed something here. This shoe rubbed my outside ankle really bad and also started to feel the lace cords also rubbing across my toes. I wore these shoes 2x for a total of say 2hrs. Very disappointed with Salomon and will now have to switch brands after years of purchasing Salomon's.

These shoes are a go to for every day activities from light hikes/trail runs, to casual outings. I got the black on black and love the look. These are a great travel shoe because they can do it all- only need to pack one shoe for an entire weekend worth of adventures. The quick lace is also super convenient and functions great.

Very light shoes. No cushion at all. Seemed to transfer all vibration into my hips.

I've had many of the XA pro 3d gtx's & had absolutely no problems at all. The new V8's rubbed from the start. Rubbed on my Lt. insole, sore behind the toes on both feet, then yesterday rubbed raw below outer ankle bone. Today rubbed raw both feet wear the cable crosses over the knuckle before the big toe. What did you do w/ my favorite hiking shoes???

These are a great improvement over the previous XA Pro 3D. Much lighter, less bulky, and the grip far exceeds the previous version on wet/slippery terrain. With the Brannock Device I measure US 11, these are true to size. I ordered a US 11, fit is perfect.
