First, let me say that all my hiking boots are Salomons, as well as casual winter boots (Jaws) and my nordic boots. Needless to say, I am sold on Salomon, except the XA Pro. I don't have a wide foot, but the side supports dig into both the inside and outside of my foot. I get terrible blisters on my arches. I can't wear them for anything other than a casual shoe, when I know I won't be walking or on my feet too much. I love Salomon, but this shoe is horrible.

The best trail shoe I have ever worn, now on my third pair. Running 70 miles a week and racing 50 milers not a problem.

I've worn these shoes in the gym and on the trail for months and the equivalent of hundreds of miles. Carried @20lbs over several days and over 2000'+ up and down in the Harper Creek WSA in NC, and most recently on a one afternoon 15-mile wet hike down the Cattaloochee Divide over Hemphill Bald and via Caldwell Fork to the Boogerman Trail and out. I like 'em so much I'm getting a non gore-tex pair for the gym and dry-hot weather. By the way the XCR gore-tex keeps the feet dry and comfy inside AND out. The kevlar lacing is also very convenient.

WOW! It's like running in waterproof, or should I say bulletproof, slippers. Soooo comfy. If you live or train in an enviroment like I do in the Northwest these are the real deal.
