Salomon Men's XA Pro3D 2 Ultra GTX
Just what I wanted, and excellent price
I do a lot of running but want to branch out into trail running. I wanted gore tex, good looks, good grip and comfort with the addition of quality to provide durability as this type of footwear doesn't come cheap.
With these I got everything and the benefit of them being in the sale meaning I saved over Â£45.
I've now done several 10+ mile runs in them across rocky roads, through forest paths and across fields. They've accepted everything thrown at them so far and I can't be more pleased. Hopefully they will last the test of this type of running better than I do on occasions but I'm pleased with them in every respect.
Thanks Snow and Rock

A comfy sturdy trail shoe
I bought these as replacement for the worn-out predecessors. The black colour would not be my favourite, given all the other colours for other Salomon shoes. I like the Salomon lace system. I've just worn them in mud and puddles round the woods and they stayed dry and gripped well. I plan to use them as my main walking shoe for Lakes and Snowdonia in Summer when there is not heavy rain forecast (when I would wear boots). Also to walk round woods and less demanding walks in Winter. The size I needed was 1/2 size larger than my normal fit. They are very comfortable and I hope they serve me as well as the previous - green- pair. Recommended.

This is my third pair of XA Pro Ultra 3d GTXs so you can tell I quite like them. I wear them a lot of the time, I love the lacing system, they fit really well, are comfortable and they do pretty much everything. However, the shoes I used to buy in the 1990s for doing the same sort of thing (but more extreme) used to last me 5 to 10 years whereas I get through 1 to 2 pairs of these per year so I do not rate their durability (not that I have found anything better for this). I also would not use these for trail running as they are too heavy (I currently use Innov8s for running serious off-road and Saucony Jazz for mixed lighter terrain). In summary, for general use these are great but for more specialised use no more than adequate.

very comfy waterproof shoe
These must be good as it's my third pair after thoroughly wearing out the previous two pairs over 5 years.
Great pair of trainers.

I had a pair of the 3D ultra ones and the Ultra two is an excellent update.
Great approach shoe and also as suitable on the highstreet.
Recommend. Also great price and service from rock and snow.

great feel and stability
I always get these trainers. They give me stability and a good feel when running and as a gym shoe they are rock solid.
The only down side is the durability of the sole.

The Salomon XA Pro3D have been around for a long time and seem to improve with every new version.

These trainers are very comfortable but take a while to wear in
These are some of the most comfortable I've had but did take a while to wear in which left a few blisters. They are well made and can take a lot of abuse. Overall excellent
