The Women's XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 Shoe from Salomon is a lightweight, durable trail running shoe that has proven itself among athletes around the world. The Sensifit™ system works to provide a precise and secure fit and is optimized for a woman's foot. The body of this shoe is quick drying, breathable mesh which ensures ventilation as you push your limits digging up the trail and jumping over logs. Not limited to running, this is also a solid option for ultralight hikers whose pack-weight doesn't require extra ankle support. Just slip these puppies on, cinch the Quicklaces and you're ready to go. The extra lace tucks into a pouch on the tongue (I had these shoes for over a year before realizing the laces tucked into a pouch. Learn from my mistake).
Note: This product comes NEW and in un-used condition, but, may not come in the original manufacturers packaging.

This is the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. It is very sturdy, offering protection for my foot and support for my ankle, while being wonderfully lightweight. Thanks for Backcountry.com's amazing return policy I ordered this shoe in a 7.5 and 8 and Salomon Exit Aero 2 Hiking Shoe in an 8. Many Solomon reviews have said order a size/half-size down, I completely agree. I didn't even try on the Exit Aero 2 because just looking at it in the box I didn't like the way the toe area was shaped. (Which is why I was drawn to trail runners in the first place, but because of the return policy I decided to go for some hiking shoes just in case.)
These shoes didn't need to be broken in, but I wore them everyday for a week before my trip. These shoes were first tested at Yosemite on the Mist Trail (to the top of Vernal Falls) on very steep, wet, steps and steep dirt paths. The shoes provided great traction and breathed well to keep my feet from getting soaked while stopping for numerous photos on the wettest part of the trail.
Two weeks later I was in a completely different environment hiking through Arches National Park. In the 100 degree heat and sand these shoes breathed well to keep my feet from getting too hot and the traction was amazing for crawling up and down smooth rocks. Hiking though sand was incredibly though, especially in the heat and sun, but these light weight shoes helped out a lot. My only complaint is towards the end of my hike on the they're-not-kidding Primitive Loop from Devil's Garden, I was collecting a lot of sand in my shoe. I read that the Gore-Tex version prevents sand and little rocks from entering your shoe, but living in Southern Nevada I cared more about breathability. I ended up stopping twice in a mile to pour sand out of my shoe, but I think that was because I was too tired and just shuffled my feet though the sand at the end.
Long winded review, but I hope It encourages others to purchase this shoe. Thank you Backcountry!
I had picked up a pair of these on S&C a few years back and it was instant love. I wore them everywhere for everything and they were always up to the task, and kept me comfortable while doing it. Imagine my dismay when the quick lace finally wore through one of the eyelets and I could no longer use them. Finally I decided the time had come to replace them and it was like a cushy homecoming for my feet. The ortholite system is really comfortable and the type box is nice and roomy for running in. I was worried about the size based on other's reviews, and decided to go half a size down (also half a size down from my old pair). I'm glad I did, as they are a perfect fit. Also, they've added plastic to the eyelets, so I can't destroy them by pulling on the laces. Buy them, you won't regret it!
I have high arches and very narrow feet. It's difficult to find comfortable trail shoes that fit. Some of Salomon's other styles are much too wide for my feet. This style, however, is great!!! I normally wear a US size 7, but I ordered these in a 6.5 and they are perfect. I do a lot of walking on varied surfaces from pavement to fairly maintained trails and these shoes are stable, yet very comfortable straight out of the box. I love the lacing and find it highly adjustable to comfort level. I hope Salomon continues to make this style. It's one of the few I can wear. Love them.
I bought these hikers before a trip to Havasupai, AZ. They felt like I was walking on a cloud from the moment I put them on! I hiked 45 miles in 4 days and never even thought about getting a blister. Even wore them through the river and they dried out and were fine for another 10 miles the next day. The lacing system is a snap. Awesome shoes.
This is a very sturdy shoe. I love slipping them on because they are something my feet can rely on for comfort and stability. The quick lace system is awesome now that I'm used to it. I got them to take with me on my 11 month, 11 country backpacking trip. I'll report back in a year or so with how they hold up! :)
Great shoe; light weight, generous toe room and the extended outter sole is fab for ankle support, took 3 tries to get right size, but backcountry staff was great! Free return for size exchange... I was 1 & 1/2 to 2 sizes smaller than usual. Was worth the 3 tries! They were on sale last time around AND a free runners cap...TY BC :)
size down! I bought these same shoes a few years ago and was replacing them with a new pair. However Salomon has changed up the sizing. Now a size 8 is too large for me so I had to return them. Backcountry.com does not have my color in a 7 1/2 so I ended up purchasing elsewhere.
I am disappointed that these shoes are too big. I have ordered Salomon in the past and 7.5 was right for me. Not so in this shoe. Too big. I needed to add a insert and even then its not working out so well. I did see a similar post about this and should have listened!! Bummed.
This shoe had extra high arches and they didn't seem to be in the correct place. One was further back than the other. I found them to be very uncomfortable.
Very high marks to Backcountry for a stellar return program!
I read the reviews that this shoe ran big, so I hoped that it would fit my rather wide foot. No such luck. I had to send them back.
These were too tight for me. I should have ordered a half size larger. So, I gave them to my daughter, who wears an 8 1/2 size shoe. :( This was a real dissapointment to me, since I have previously bought Saloman hiking shoes and love them.
