Previous older version of this shoe was AWESOME. I have had three pairs in the past two years and on all three the soles have come unglued from the shoe within about 4 months.
The soles keep separating from the shoe on mine — 3 pairs now.

I've used these shoes as one of my adventure racing set-ups for about three years now. I like the lacing system. It allows you to get a loose or tight feel while still be a very comfortable and good traction shoe. The shoes also drain very well. I finally have worn them out and my next pair will be Salomons again, though I don't believe this particular model is still available.
Here's what other sites are saying:
These high-performance trail running or adventure-racing shoes feature the Quickfit one-pull asymmetrical lacing system with Kevlar® laces. It provides a secure glove-like fit that adjusts easily for foot swelling during long runs. Uppers are multiple mesh layers that are breathable, quick-drying, and reinforced in high-wear areas. Gussetted tongues keep out scree and debris. Midsoles are dual-density EVA with race tuned flex plates. Outsoles features multi-hardness rubber that balances grip and durability. Forefoot flex grooves, well defined toe-off and braking lugs provide secure performance.
