A hearty bowl of awesome.

Not so different than the way you consume a bowl of hearty and savory beef stew after having spent the day out in the cold, the Salomon Men's X-Mission 3 Trail Running Shoe gobbles crusty trails for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Built to crush the inclines and ensure steady footing on the descent, this reimagined trail runner features a newly renovated high abrasion and wet traction Contagrip sole which utilizes strategically placed lugs and high density tread. This ultimately encourages paramount stability and grip when you need it the most. The breathable open mesh, durable Quicklace drawcord system, and SensiFIT system provides a comfortable, locked down fit but without the frequent friction hot spots and unsavory blisters. Not to mention, the X-Mission 3 is equipped with neutral support, SensiFlex, asymmetrical heel counter, and EVA injected midsole which cater to a smooth and comfortable ride.

Best Running Shoes I've owned

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: 10.5

I love these shoes, they fit my feet perfectly. I run about 50/50 trail to road and these work really well on both. I won't claim to be a running fanatic so I haven't logged a huge number of miles on these yet, but so far these look about the same as when I bought them. If you have a narrow foot with a high arch, these are the shoes for you.

Lightweight, breathable

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

A great distance shoe for a trail where a road shoe would be sufficient but you want a little more support and protection

Great shoe!

  • Size Bought: 9.5

Bought these as a gift for my buddy. Loved the fit around the heel of the shoe. Also was blown away by how easy and comfortable the quicklace is. Walked them around the house a bit and fell in love with them.

OK, not great for my purposes

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

Summary - great, lightweight shoe for fire roads and sandy trails. Not so great on rocky or uneven terrain. I use them for running on marked trails in the east bay hills of San Francisco. The trails are well maintained, but single track and fairly rugged in places.

Great, grippy sole
Fits my wide feet pretty well
The lacing system works well

Pretty flexible at the forefoot and not much torsional stiffness - not great on rocky or heavily rooted trails
The green is really ugly
The soles are so grippy that they occasionally catch when going over tree roots.

Narrow toe box

    Strong sole and solid lacing system. Grippy with great tread. Tongue stays in place. Toe box is a little too narrow for me. Insoles leave a little to be desired.

    Do very well with wide feet. I have large and wide feet, and these shoes seem to be more comfortable out of the box than any other trail running shoes I have tried(Brooks, New Balance). Those shoes did well, but were not as immediately comfortable as the Salomon’s. The sole is very wide at the heal and forefoot, providing great stability, I use these as my primary backpacking/hiking shoe. I also like the quick lace system, no laces wearing out or becoming untied.

    Solid shoe

    I've been wearing xr missions for about 2 years and love them! They were super durable, comfortable, and functional. The main differences I see from the xr mission to the x mission is the sole is different, it doesn't have the big pad on the upper right like the xr but I can't feel much of a difference with it not there. Also it seems to be a tad narrower. And lastly they are substantially lighter, especially on the feet, major difference. These shoes are awesome and I highly recommend.
