Rated 5 out of 5 by from I Like Them.......A Lot! About 10 years ago I stopped running because of pain in my knees. About 6 weeks ago I decided to give it another try (no surgeries or therapy on the knees though). I figured I would keep my running to treadmills where I would have a nice soft landing. After a few weeks of no pain I was willing to give trail running a go keeping that to no more than two days a week. I chose these shoes strictly based on the thumb test on the inside heel of the shoe. These had the softest heel. So far no pain at all in my 67 year old knees. I have high arches and normally have trouble with a good fit in athletic shoes but these have turned out to be very comfortable as well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Comfy shoe but small toebox and doesn't last These are my everyday wear shoes. The toebox was quite tight, even on a wide shoe, but after about a month everything stretched out enough to give for a very comfortable wear. I do a lot of urban walking and an occasional trail and found they are very stable and comfortable shoes. CAUTION: These have terrible grip on wet terrain like rocks and cement. I bought the shoes six month ago and the insides and exterior mesh are already falling apart. Thinking about returning. Makes me sad as I would have overall been happy with them if they had lasted at least a year.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Was hoping for an improvement This is my 4th or 5th pair of these shoes and they have gradually gotten worse. My last pair wouldn't stay tight which led to the heel cup getting worn out. This pair has the same problem. I called Salomon and they offered to sell me a new set of laces to attempt to fix the problem. The rep said that it would somewhat improve the security of the laces. I really wanted to love these as I loved my old ones but it seems that isn't going to happen. For what its worth, the new soles seem to grip better and the lace pocket is a lower profile.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fell apart within 200 miles I have been hiking in Salomon trail runners for a few years now and they have been great, until now. A couple of month ago I bought the XA Pros and within 200 miles the soles were literally falling off the shoes, the heel cup had split and the mesh was tearing at the flex points. These are not the quality shoes that I am used to and I am disappointed with their short life span. From the reviews contained here I can see that I am not the only one and I can only hope that Salomon gets back to making quality, lasting products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Used to hike in Northern New Mexico I purchased these about 2 months ago. I didn't have much time to break them in before heading off to Red River, NM. I hiked in them almost every day. I was pleased with the grip and comfort. I did however develop a blister on my left heel after an aggressive hike up to a mountain lake. I think this had more to do with me not breaking them in properly than the shoe being an issue. Pros: Comfort, quick laces, grip Cons: stay away from water* *these are the non water proof ones and they are not lying. heavy dew in the morning will get the socks damp.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Harder than expected to put on I looked forward to having these shoes because they tighten without shoelaces. However, their process for doing so is NOT convenient compared to replacing regular shoelaces with elastic shoelaces, as I've done with other shoes. In addition, I was surprised to find my feet hurting on my first 4.4 mile hike in these. No blisters or lasting damage, but enough discomfort in enough toes that I'll avoid them for longer hikes, at least until they are fully broken in. On the bright side, I needed a pair of black shoes for our local emergency preparedness group uniform, and these were the best choice for that I found at REI.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from They don't last Bought these a couple years ago, after retiring an old pair of Montrail's I loved. Initially, I was concerned about going lace-less, but it proved to be a non-issue. Never had a problem with them loosening up. I did, however, notice the soles wearing prematurely, as well as the inside of the shoe, around the heel box. Cheapie insoles then wore out, and given the narrow heel box design, I can't find any replacement insoles that will fit. So, they're heading for the trashbin. Given the fact that I got perhaps 10% of the hiking/running out of these shoes when compared to my previous pair, it's safe to say I won't be trying Salomon again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not durable anymore Inside of the shoe (heel) tears very soon. Prepare for blisters because of heel slipage. This is my second pair. Was very happy with the first one but now I'm looking for something else. Not the same shoe as it was!

What are the differences between the Standard Width and Wide Width version of these shoes?  Is the overall shoe a bit wider, like in the midsole and heel area? Or is it just a bit wider in the toe box?  Any info would be appreciated, Thanks!

Asked by: daniel denver
These seemed wide in the midsole, but not wide in the heel or toe box. I compared them to some regular width salomon trail runners and they don't seem that much wider in my opinion.

What are the major differences between this shoe and the earlier XA 3D Ultra 2 which I loved but can no longer find?

Asked by: robusto
The shoes are fairly similar, but the updated XA Pro 3D Trail-Running Shoes have Endofit internal sleeves and are a little lighter weight.
