- Worth the money. Review by RT
Price Value Quality
This is the first Salomon product i have purchased and even though it is pricey, it was definitely worth the money! It is the highest quality shoe i have ever purchased , it is extremely comfortable and the lacing feature is very convenient.
However i do feel they are a little big. I usually wear a size 10.5 and will be being a 10 for my next pair of Salomons!

- Good shoe. Good company. Review by DW
Price Value Quality
I just received my Special Edition Camo Salomon XA Pro Ultra 2 GTX trail running shoes. They fit me just as well as my standard (non-camo) version of the same shoe. They are comfortable and I can stand, walk, run all day without foot strain. I am a fan of the unique lacing system and when I travel, they are my shoe of choice for the ease getiing them on and off at airport security. I agree with the other review that points out the brown color is very subdued and the shoe is mostly green - not a problem for me since my other Salomons are the green version. Salomon has a great warranty service if you have any issues with their shoes.
I am pleased that I stumbled upon US Elite Gear and they are my first stop now when looking for certain gear/equipment. Good company and I highly recommend.

- Overall a great low GTX show for dynamic activity. Review by BornFREE
Price Value Quality
I had a pair of Salomon XT Wings from 2010 and they are still going. The chassis of the XA Pro 3D is a little different, it makes you feel closer to the ground. I also own and use the Quest 4D GTX boots which have the same chassis like the XA.
Salomon has been known for being THE trail/mountain running shoe. Meanwhile Adidas has brought out some great shoes as well, and La Sportiva have always been great.
However, Salomon has listened to the requests from military forces and produced shoes in corresponding colors.
THIS ONE IS IN REALITY MORE GREEN THAN IT APPEARS. In the displayed picture it seems to be more brownish (FDE-like). So, if you want a shoe that's rather brown than green, think twice.
If you own Arcteryx LEAF clothing (Wolk or Croc) this show will go along those colors pretty well.
Now here's my own personal perspective on how this shoe fits. While it has the same size like my XT Wings, it seems not to hug my feet the same way. I have narrow heels and if I don't pull the laces tight enough, the heel slips out slightly. If I wouldn't want the heel to slip out, then I would need to go with a smaller size, which then would put my toes right at the front of the shoe ... and this is not an advisable thing because when you run downhill you will damage your toe nails.
Other than that the shoe is as expected. Great traction in both wet/slippery situation or rocky landscape and it provides enough arch support.
I have learned that the insole Salomon provides is really the best that goes with their shoes. While I use insoles in other shoes, I let my Salomons with their original one.
If you need a more neutral shoe, go with the XA. If you want more stability then go with the XT (now called X Ultra GTX).
