I am really impressed with the grip and support these shoes provide in muddy conditions. No excuse not to go out in the rain now!
This is my 2nd pair of XA Pro's my first being the Goretex version and both have been excellent. I use mine for running cross country as well as roads and they are good all rounders and very durable. My only criticism of Salomon's is that I tend to find they all come up snug fitting around the toes and I wouldn't say I have particularly wide feet. That said it's not enough of a problem to put me off buying them.
Review of black Saloman shoes
Fantastic pair of trainers. They look amazing, are comfortable, lightweight and cool. Plus, I've had a similar pair before and know that they are durable.
