User Review: Salomon Men's XA Pro 3D Ultra
Price Paid: $110
Hiked 11 hours on the Florida Trail in high temperatures (getting lost added a few hours to the hike). Ran the last hour to escape lightning bolts from an incoming storm. Exhilarating!
Foot check at the car showed no blisters at all. Hiking in these shoes without socks will cause major blisters, especially a certain area on the side of my foot. But hiking with wool socks does the trick.
Also took these on a big hike in Colorado up rugged and rocky Flattop Mountain. Performed well.
Overall, I highly recommend these as hiking shoes (haven't run much in them yet).
