Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

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'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!

Annette Murano at on 10/04/2012

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.

Lori Ann at on 03/02/2013
I own the Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 and a part of the Amphibian Water shoes, and have tried on other Salomon shoes. I wear a size 9, and I know if I order a size 9 it will be true to size. The arch support is excellent, and are roomy in all the right places without feeling too loose. These are so comfortable!! I can wear these all day and forget I have shoes on. I also noticed the ability to walk longer distances and stand for longer periods of time without my feet, legs and back hurting. My search for good shoes is over!

I have two other pairs of Salomon for walking my dog in at times rocky, dirt road, uphill terrain. Like the other Salomons, these grip the ground far more securely than an ordinary athletic shoe. If my dog and I chose, we could walk the hills all the way to the Hollywood sign in these! The color and style are trendier than the other two pairs. However, these are a tad tighter than the ordinary lace ups by the same company. The regular lace ups are roomier and cheaper. Just so other buyers know. As always, Zappos provides wonderful, risk free choices!

I recently bought this shoe for my mom for Christmas, and she loves them. She is a Varsity Swim Team coach and stands on her feets walking laps and laps around the pool day after day and the support and traction these shoes provide are great for her.
I use mine for light hiking and trail running and find them very comfy and they seem to have great traction. I had them the entire summer and they are holding up great. I highly recommend this shoe.

Carly Clifton at on 01/06/2014

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.

mar4997299 at on 11/23/2011
I love these shoes! Definitely order at least a half size or whole size smaller, as they run big. I had to send the first pair back. I no longer have to wear my Super Feet inserts with these because they have great arch support. I work out in them and wear them everywhere. Very comfortable. I think I'll be buying Salomon for life now.
Anonymous - customer at on 04/26/2011

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 :)

ama2880435 at on 05/12/2012

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. does not have my color in a 7 1/2 so I ended up purchasing elsewhere.

Negative Reviews:

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.

dee3097901 at on 03/19/2012

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!

lovp12718 at on 10/11/2012

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.

geraldcf011103127 at on 04/23/2012

Neutral Reviews:

I live in South America and do a decent amount of hiking/trail walking, and some trail running. I tend to like to wear trail running shoes in the place of hiking boots or shoes. These shoes are well made and I like the way they look, but they are too clunky for me. I found that they felt heavy and big on my feet, and that definitely made my stride awkward when running. Ultimately I think they are a good shoe, just not for me.

rmg5635514 at on 07/12/2013

I loved these shoes for the first six months that I had them...and then the insoles broke down. I put new insoles in, but now the sole is starting to pull away from the shoe. They were very comfortable for my high arched, mildly pronating feet until they started breaking down. I've concluded that they are not good for daily wear, which includes both hiking and running, for more than a year (I've had them 11 months).

oldkitten at on 12/10/2013

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.
