Salomon XT Wings 3 Trail-Running Shoes - Men's is rated 4.3846 out of 5 by 13.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great all around trail shoe I recently used these shoes for a Rim 2 Rim 2 Rim run through the Grand Canyon. After 15 hours, 50 miles, and 21K feet of elevation change, I only had one small blister on my right heel. Otherwise, my feet felt great and the extra cushioning provided the comfort needed on the downhill parts of the run. The tread on the shoe worked fine, the quick lace system is fantastic, and the extra protection on the toecap came in handy. I usually run in a more minimalist type of shoe, but on runs over 30 miles I prefer a shoe like the x-wings that have a little extra support and cushioning. Currently, there are many companies making great trail shoes, but Salomon is definitely one of the best. If you enjoy trail running then you should give Salomon shoes a try. Don't be dissuaded by the price, the quality of the product is worth the few extra dollars.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Constructed The shoe has great features with toe guard, venting, but tight mesh not allowing dirt in, great grip, lots of control at heel keeping shoe under foot when on angled surfaces, but very flexible at front of foot and good feel under front of foot. The shoe does seem a bit tight, but really keeps out rocks and well controlled, the footbed is one of the best I have ever felt, no need for orthotics. I am actually moving to minimalist shoes for running, but use this for hiking / walking to keep my volume up. The grip descending is very good, and comforts your feet, much better than my trail gloves in that respect, so these definitely have their place in my casual fitness mix of hiking and trail running.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent Multi-Purpose Shoe To preface, my feet are about average width, but I have higher than normal arches. After trying most others in the store nothing compared to the support, comfort, breathability, and grip of this shoe. Prior to going on an 80mile backpacking trip with this shoe I took it on one three mile trail run. The shoe broke in quickly and felt very comfortable. Over the 80 mile backpacking trip we encountered everything from single track to light scrambling on sandstone mountains. The shoe provided excellent traction and support in all of these conditions, even when slightly wet. They dried out quickly after an accidental fall into a stream and didn't get overly wet from morning dew. I didn't encounter any noticeable hot-spots or parts of the design that stuck out as causing discomfort. All of the materials held up to this punishment quite well, with no failures to date. Additionally, the large toe-cap and high instep provided great protection from low lying rocks and ruts. Overall this shoe far outperformed my "Light" hiking Merrill Moab's in every category. They breathe better, are lighter, more cushy, have excellent lateral and fore-aft support, and deliver more grip. My toe never hits the front and the lace system really provides good pressure distribution and quick adjustments. This shoe will be great for those looking to hike Colorado 14ers, summer backpacking trips, and trail/mountain running. The only reason I didn't give it max stars was because the La Sportiva Raptor has slightly better grip for scrambling and a little more cushioning (although it wasn't as comfortable on my foot). For those with high arches I would recommend an insert, which I have now added, but for shorter distances you can get by without. Also, those with wide feet may find this shoe a little tight, as it provides a lot of lateral support.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Tall Shoe I have run in Solomon shoes for the past six years. My last shoes were Solomon XR Crossmax's. I dropped into REI and grabbed the XT Wings because they looked like the replacement for the Crosmax. However, on my first run I discovered they are much taller. They are very comfortable but the tongue and uppermost lacing eyelet is 3/4" taller than my old shoes. This produced intolerable chafing on the inside of my ankle until it almost bled. Great shoe, just not the same as my old ones and too tall for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love them, third pair For 3 years now I've used my dividend and 20% off one item to buy this shoe. I love it. I use it for everything but running. Traveling, hiking, bicycling. I buy at the store to make sure the fit is still right.
Date published: 2014-03-26
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good traction and light weight I picked these up as my first pair of official trailrunning shoes and they have been a great addition to my weekend runs. Very good balance between traction, cushioning, and overall weight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Excellent Shoe I wear the shoes daily, and have a long history of using Salomon shoes. These are the trail running version without the Gor-tex liner. They're great for dry weather, not so useful for other stuff. They are lighter weight than previous similar models. I love the lacing system.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like I've been buying Salomon trail shoes with one exception for like 10 years, and the exception was a mistake, so I'm back to Salomon. These shoes are great and wear well. The tread on the wings is nice especially in that it has nice grip, but is not so detailed as to be hard to clean or pick up lots of rocks.
