Protection on the trail.

Haul down trails in the stable and highly protective Men's XA Pro 3D Gore-Tex Trail Running Shoe by Salomon. A Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining maximizes this shoe's breathability without hindering Gore-Tex's tried-and-tested waterproof protection. SensiFit utilizes a ventilated mesh upper with bands that wrap around your foot for a precise fit, and the QuickLace ensures a snug feel from toe to heel. There's a pocket for the lace so it doesn't flap around while you run.

The XA Pro 3D also features Salomon's trusted Contagrip sole for excellent grip, durable longevity, and lightweight comfort. A layer of injected EVA gives the compressed EVA midsole extra cush as well as support, and the Ortholite footbed has a 3D Advanced Chassis for extra stability. Salomon also added a mud guard, toe cap, and tongue cover for extra protection from the trail ahead.

Dearly Beloved...

  • Fit: Runs small

We are gathered here today to honor the life of a great shoe. From the mountains of Montana, to the repeatedly kicked wires under my desk, to the depths of Moabs Canyons. These shoes have served David far longer than they should have. Though David couldn't bare the thought of letting them go, the day finally came when they just couldn't hold on any longer. Incredibly, though the soles David had almost worn completely through, the speed-lace held up to the very end. (He thought that would be the first to go...). This is a much older model, and they were his everyday shoe. Maybe, just maybe there is a place where old shoes go to run one last time. A place where they no longer stink, where the fabrics are restored, and they can make someone happy for the first time again. Though the body of the shoes will no longer be, the sole will live on in the many adventures had together.

You will be missed....

10-Mile Hike Right Out of the Box!

    Maybe the most comfortable pair of shoes I have ever owned. I was able to do a 10-mile hike on the first day I got them. Day two in them was even better. My first hike in them was in the snow and ice in Ohio. My feet stayed dry and did not get cold. The way these shoes tie is incredible. When tightened, the inside of the shoe kind of forms around your foot. So, the Fitbit perfect without being tight or uncomfortable. I have wide feet with a titanium screw in a bone on the outside of my left foot. So, there are a lot of shoes I can't wear. Because the shoe kind of forms around the structure of your foot, I experience no discomfort from the screw at all. The treads on the shoe are made of good, durable rubber. Great shoes and worth every penny!!

    I've had 3 iterations of this shoe. for me the quick-lace and gore-tex rock, durability is marginal, fit is roomy for my flat feet superfeet insoles adapt the way. The inner lining has given out early on me, they wear right through; the heel mostly. returned the most recent pair after a couple hundred miles because of a stitched seam in the midline of the heel cup just wouldn't wear in. 3 months and the liner wore through and I couldn't shake the blister when pushing it. Took em back. Gracefully Salomon replaced them. Onward

    I wear these every day and will never wear another shoe. These are actually my second pair after my first ones gave out after 3 years. I've worn them in the snow, sand, and rain and they've held up great. The waterproofing holds up really well, and they're supportive where they need to be. Mine have taken me from Mt. Katahdin in Maine to half dome in California and back to the office every Monday.

    A bad a$$ shoe run a little narrow.

    When I first purchase these over a year ago I really didn’t know what to think. They were tight on my toes and not too comfortable. I now use these as my weekend hiker and I love them. After a year, of use the lugs are still strong the waterproof membrane is intact and there are no visible cracks in the sole. The shoe is in good condition for the amount of hell I’ve put them through. I still am not going to go any farther than 6 miles. Overall, I really like the shoe and they look great. I might have purchased something else only because the narrowness and the time it took to break in.

    Excellent for hiking

      Used on all terrain - and climbing. Lightweight, firm steps. I really like the pull string laces - no worry about shoe laces coming undone and when you tighten them they tighten across the whole foot. Very comfortable

      I am biased because Salomon shoes fit me better then any others (especially with the cinch lacing system) - but these rock. And ice. And mud. And sand. Wore through slush and frozen roads this winter. Also in Utah on a recent trip- dry happy supported feet. I have a similar version in non gortex for summer. Previous generation in hospice as my lawn mowing shoe. The sole is semi-flexible (I have run on worse- this is Goldie locks of flex for a winter off road show) but even across gravely berms and rocky beaches I haven't had any issues with stone bruises. Have tried others with water repellant- and had cold sad feet.

      good shoes

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I bought these for my son and found that it's pretty on par with what others have mentioned on them. The sole is stiff which he didn't always love. Several good hikes and I can see the soles wearing a little on the fast side. That being said the sole's grip solid and secure and I've found a really good sole to wear out a bit faster than one that does not.

      third pair; wish that they lasted longer

      I admit to being a trail runner/ approach shoe junkie and this is my third pair of these. The latest pair, while true to size for me, has slightly less volume than the previous two pair. My only gripe is that the soles just do not wear as well as the rest of the shoe. The soles are down to no cleat long before the upper would be shot. I agree that the shoe is tortionally stiff but really like that part...

      So far so good.

      Got these for hiking and disc golfing in the PNW winter. Been using them for about 2 months now, and can report back-- pretty good. They do take some breaking in (got hot spots on my Achilles and pinky toe) and they are a little on the bulky side. I would not use them for running, as they are too heavy for my taste. Moreover, as I am a forefoot striker, they have too much of a heel-toe drop to comfortably run. However, they have kept my feet dry after walking through some gnarly muddy/wet conditions, and they are quite grippy on most surfaces...mossy and wet logs/rocks might be the exception to this rule, but that's true of every shoe I've ever owned.

      runs about 1/2 to 1 size smaller

      I have found that the newest version of this shoe runs about 1/2 -1 full size smaller than a previous pair(s) that I have owned from about 3-4 years ago. I little annoying as my previous pair(s) are some of the comfiest hiking / trekking shoes I have owned. I'm going to be returning in hopes of getting a larger size.

      I hiked in the Inca Trail in Peru this past summer and purchased these as compromise between train runners and hiking boots. They held up great and I really liked the quick lace up system. They were tight on my feet which was an absolute Godsend as the Inca Trail has tens of thousands of stairs that are all different widths and heights, with uneven surfaces. The traction was phenomenal. I chose the Gore-Tex models over the CS WP ones because these will also be my normal backpacking shoes and wanted the H20 protection (which was excellent. I walked in several streams to test it). That being said, they didn't breath as well as one might hope. The other thing I noticed was while the support was good, the cushioning wasn't very substantial. Given that I was walking on stones all day my feet were sore by the 5000th stair or so. This may happen with any shoe on that trail, but I might invest in some insoles to save me feet a little in the future. Overall, it's an excellent shoe with good support, tight fit, arch support, and good waterproofing. I've already recommended it to both my dad and best friend for a lightweight hiking shoe.

      Breathability and waterproofness

        I just did some comparing between these and the Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 GTX Trail Running Shoe and the Gore-Tex Extended Comfort lining in this shoe has a better waterproof rating and breathability.


        An evolving shoe....

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times
        • Fit: Runs small

        This is the second pair of Salomon's that I have purchased, in the last two (2) years. The first set is ready for retirement, after reasonably strenuous use. The new pair is quite similar, but with a few important deviations.

        First, for those of you not familiar with this variety of Solomons, they may be defined as a cross between a low cut hiking boot and a running shoe. My sense is that they tend a bit more towards the former: sturdy, with a protective, moderately stiff sole and excellent side support. Without question, they can be utilized for moderate distance hiking. However, I am not in the category of the strenuous, long distance hikers. My experience has been limited to light treks in the Alps and some of the challenging trails at Acadia.

        If you are an experienced runner, trying trails for the first time, the shoe may seem a bit disconcerting: it is heavier than street running equipment. On the other hand, it provides protection from one of the nastiest trail elements: rocky, uneven terrain. I tried using a pair of good quality, New Balance street shoes on a rugged trail; not fun. I could feel every rock and pebble. Not so with the Solomons. One gains protection, along with weight.

        You will either like the quick lace system, or find it an annoying curiosity. I have grown used to it; a kind of bemused tolerance. However, I have recently learned, through a Backcountry associate, that Solomon sells a re-lacing kit. This probably falls into the category of "assembly required". For me, this causes little difficulty. I merely, politely, ask my wife to undertake the task.

        The major difference from prior incarnations is the arch; it is what would be termed "high". For my anatomy, it is very noticeable. I have a low arch or, to be politically incorrect, flat feet. While the shoes seem to be breaking in, nicely, it will always be a trait of the footwear. My only suggestion is to try it for yourself. BTW: the Gore-Tex is excellent.

        Yeah I agree, great review and I just wanted to say if you have trouble with the lacing kit most REI and Salomon store employees can help you with that. I always do it free of charge for people who visit our store and the lace kits always run for no more than 5$. Youtube has great tutorials as well, I would just recommend having scissors, a needle, and lighter on hand to get the job done. Cheers!
