CUSHIONING

  • Energy Cell 2 is a full length composite foam designed to attenuate heel strike energy and provide increased energy return.
MIDSOLE
  • Dual Density Eva provides underfoot cushioning and helps control overpronation.
  • Pronation Control uses higher density foam in the medial midfoot to minimize overpronation
  • 3D Stability uses a thermoplastic unit layered in the midsole to provide a smooth heel to toe transition while reducing lateral movement. 
  • 3D Protection is a thermoplastic unit in the heel for added heel stability.
UPPER
  • Anti-Debris Mesh is a breathable mesh upper that keeps debris out of the shoe.
  • Protective Rubber Toe Cap keeps toes safe from bruising on trails.
  • Asymmetrical Quicklace made from durable Kevlar fibers provides easy shoe entry and exit and a secure fit.

  • Contagrip is a uniquely designed outsole of differing densities for grip and durability, creating increased traction over varying terrains.


Comments: I have had these shoes for 6 months now and they have held up great for the purposes of what I use them for. I have always had wide feet and an notoriously hard on shoes. I have had no luck with the 2E Asics as I blow out the side and top of the toe box in a matter of weeks. The Brooks Beast fair better at 3months in the 2E and but blow out only on top near the big toe. The Salomons however are going on 6 months with no quality issues. They provide a great amount of lateral support and the hard rubber toe keeps me from busting out of the top. I wear them mostly for work in healthcare and working outside, but with 4 kids under 5 I can't actually say I have time to go run trails but I can imagine they would fair well considering I wear for nearly everything. They also come with a one year warranty which is great considering I think I can get a year out of them. No blisters to report like precious reviewer, but did take a couple days to break into what I would consider comfortable. I also had no issues with the 11 2E size that I wear. It fit very comparable to the 4 pair of Brooks Beast I have had. I would definitely buy again.

Comments: I usually run in Asics Kayano and Saucony Hurricanes. For trail runs I wore the Salomon Wings. I loved the Wings 1 and 2 but never bonded with the 3. Because of this, I tried a number of other trail shoes that either failed to provide enough stability or enough protection for my toes. Anyone who has kicked a stump or root while running will know what I am talking about. Just when I was ready to give up, I tried this shoe and loved it. It is exactly what I was looking for. I ran 5 miles right out of the box and it was love at first run. I have since done 10 miles in them and I know that they will be perfect for the two 50Ks I have planned before the end of the year. For what it is worth, I use Superfeet inserts in all of my running shoes, these shoes included.

Comments: I bought this shoe, ran 3-4km's, got three blisters, went home, sold them. They fit quite narrow in the mid foot, and i would not recommend these for a person with a wide foot. They even hurt to walk in. there is a lot of structure/seams/ribs in the shoe that cause rubbing. The toe box is big but still managed to give me a blister. For the record, i'd have to go back about 15 years to remember a time that running shoes gave me a blister, so i was hugely disappointed with this experience. narrow/average width feet only.
