A Solid Go-To Shoe for Anything and Everything… Including Trail Running
– I’d say there are only a handful of shoes that can be worn as your everyday shoe and you won’t be sorry. The Salomon XA Pro 3D can be worn as your work shoe, a thru hiking performance shoe, a casual town shoe, and of course, you can use it as it is intended – a trail running shoe.
Ski Haus has sold this shoe in all its variations for years and it remains one of our best selling go-to shoes. One of the best features is it is easy to fit. From wide feet to narrow feet it seems no matter what your foot shape you can get a good fit with these shoes. Owe this to the fact that Salomon makes some of the very best fitting Nordic boots, Alpine boots, hiking boots, and trail running shoes. Salomon has long history of getting shoe fit right.
Another feature we set incredibly high is traction. Salomon features Premium Wet Traction Contagrip. This is key when an afternoon shower cools your hot trail into a slick-fest. Wet rock and mud become no-brainers. Keep your confidence and pace intact.
We like Salomon’s Quick Lace System, too. Slide the toggle down to lace up your shoes in one easy motion or pull up for an easy out. The hidden garage at the top of the tongue is the spot to tuck the slider away along with any extra lace. You don’t want a runaway loop of lace to snag a root or rock and bring a sudden end to your run.
The reinforced toe cap, the 3D advanced chassis for great stability, Sensifit which cradles the foot providing a secure and snug fit, and EVA cushioning all add greatness to this shoe. Is this the stuff you think about when you’re wearing them? Not really. When a shoe fits great and preforms equally great – the last thing you think about are your shoes and feet.
Looking for a great shoe to handle the day as it comes to you? Check out the Salomon XA Pro 3D trail running shoe.
The XA Pro comes in a Goretex version as well and sells for $145.00. Keep that in mind as we work through a (hopefully) wet Spring.
