Another solid salomon shoe
on 20 December 2014
This is the 5th pair of Salomon XA Pro 3D's i have had, and i will continue to buy them until they stop making them. It fits incredibly well, is snug but not too tight and the quick lace system makes it easy to lace up when you're off the paved path. I wear them as an every day shoe, and as such do get through them quickly, with a pair lasting me a year and half on average (i do give them some abuse though) but i often retire them to gardening or painting duty, so realistically i get another year or two out of them after that.
This new generation has moved to an elasticated tongue material, which at first felt weird but now im used to it i prefer it, as it cuts down on tongue volume and increases breathability.
