Salomon Sizing Chart
4.7 out of 5
October 31, 2010
I really enjoy these Salomons for trail running and paintball. When they snug up, they snug up evenly thoughout the lacing which makes them like butter on your feet. I love the Gortex feature so I can splash through puddles all day without a worry. I will for sure get another pair when I these wear out-if they do.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Great value, waterproofed!

I am on my 6th pair of XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX's. They are one of the best shoes I have ever owned. Only one drawback: I like my shoes laced VERY tight and that tends to wear the first grommet that holds the laces fairly fast. They last for about 6-9 months. However, I wear my shoes everyday and I am always moving... All in all, not a big enough deal to not give 5 stars!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX
November 10, 2010
These are great shoes. I own two pair!! Solid support with good fore foot flex. I order these shoe 1/2 size larger than my street shoes.Pros: Great design
Great all around
March 18, 2011
I first got introduced to xwings a few years ago... these shoes are without a doubt, the best quality, and most comfortable shoes on the market. Normal shoes show significant signs of wear after a month or so... I routinely use these shoes for over 8 months while they look brand new, then another 8, before I just get tired of them and want to update them. You won't find me on the road, or on the trail in any other shoe.
December 27, 2010
These are a recent purchase and I have only had them out on the trails for a couple of runs. So far I am loving them. I had a pair of Vasque Aaether Tech Boas before. Those were great shoes, but I can tell that I am going to like these even better!Pros: Great design, Build quality
The pair that lasted my 3years
July 13, 2012
When its a less hardcore hiking trip, this will be the go-to Pair for me. Its waterproofing were excellent holding up 3 years of abuse in the Asian weather (rain/shine/humidity). When I felt lazy, this was also the go-to pair for a quick run around town. The lacing system was smart and held up throughout. Too bad after 3 years, mine has finally gave in, and its now time for the Next Pair!!Pros: tough, flexible to be used as a normal city running shoe, the most comfortable shoe i used running offroad, Cons: n/a
Great shoe on or off the trail
June 13, 2009
They keep my feet dry and grip the trail well. I am on my third pair (second with gore-tex) and couldn't be happier.
So far so good!
March 03, 2010
I have had the XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX Trail Running Shoes for about a month and have been very pleased with them. These shoes were comfortable right out of the box and I have put about 20 miles on them with no blisters or hot-spots.
Great shoe, most comfortable
January 26, 2009
Gore-Tex is great, seem to run 1/2 size small. I ordered a 9 1/2 (usually wear a 9). I tried on 4 different brands and Salomon was by far the most comfortable. Nice lacing system. Altrec.com was very helpful, I returned for diff color and size. No problems. I would recommend these.
Not for Me
April 27, 2011
I was looking for a waterproof trail runner and this shoe gets rave reviews on multiple sites. It also appeared available in a dark gray/red color combination that I liked. Unfortunately, the fit was not right for me - the forefoot space was too large. I was surprised in that I have owned many Salomon shoes over the years and generally they have fit my feet perfectly. As a minor consideration, the gray color was much lighter than I expected from the pictures on the web.
Another great shoe from Salomon
December 27, 2010
This is my third pair of Salomon shoes. I haven't been disappointed yet. The quality and confort is better than major name brands. They fit right to my 10.5 size. I love this shoes so much that I prep them with leather conditioner on the leather inserts before first use. I will buy this brand again.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Great value
October 17, 2011
4th pair in 8 years. If they didn't last so darn long I would have more than that by now. Extremely versatile, comfortable, supportive. Great for a multitude of activities such as hiking, trail running, mountaineering, or just going out for a bite. And as long as the powder isn't too deep you can definitely shovel in them due to their GTX exterior!
great fit and great feel
February 02, 2010
ideal for running, hiking and just plain walking. gore text finish really keeps the water out.
Great All-Weather Shoe
February 26, 2012
I wore these shoes when I went to Rome and they were waterproof, very comfortable, and lightweight. They were easy to pack in my suitcase and felt great to wear - quick to get on and off. I usually wear a size 13 but these ran large and I had to order a size 12.Pros: good looking, comfortable, waterproof, lightweight for the size, Cons: run large, warm to wear
The best trail runners out there
February 10, 2011
This is my 3rd pair. I use them for hiking, backpacking, cycling and walking around town. These shoes are the most comfortable shoes I have ever worn, and the kevlar lace pull system ROCKS! And Altrec had them on my front porch in 2 days!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance, Ease of use
Great Lightweight trail shoe
December 05, 2010
I use these shoes for backpacking and I love them. they are super light weight and are really comfortable on the trail. I have found them to be very durable and able to take a beating. I love the shoe lace cord thing that these shoes use.Pros: Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Great value
Great trail shoe - flexible, absorbant and adherent.
January 25, 2009
Over past four months I have now run >500 kms of mountain trails - stony, muddy and very uneven - in hot tropical conditions, and found the Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX a really great pair of shoes - breathe easily after going through water - extremely cushioning on hard, stony surfaces, and comfortable for my wide feet. Lace system keeps exactly the right tension, and soles excellent grip in dry conditions - so much better than my previous Adidas trail runners - small criticism is not such good adherence on mossy or wet rock. Overally best trail shoes I have used.
Best pair of trail running shoes
July 02, 2010
best pair of trail running shoes I've had! So light weight!
June 06, 2010
Bought these as a replacement pair for my non-Goretex version. These are equally as comfortable and feel a little sturdier. Took about 10 miles to break them in but that's OK by me. They might run about 1/4-1/2 size large.
Will buy again
September 08, 2009
First pair lasted 3 yrs just got the new ones and I hope they last as long. These are great shoes. Highly recommend.
Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX
November 10, 2010
These are great shoes. I own two pair!! Solid support with good fore foot flex. I order these shoe 1/2 size larger than my street shoes.Pros: Build quality, Performance, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Absolute Best Trail Running Shoe.
June 16, 2011
The Salomon XA 3D Ultra GTX lives up to my high expectations. I am on my third pair, and plan to keep buying them as I wear them out. I'm a big guy (5'11" and 220lbs) with a neutral step. I use these shoes to run on crushed granite trails and occasionally single track with no complaints. The footbed provides a firm yet flexible foundation leaving my feet feeling fine after 3-5 mile runs (can't say the same for most others). The GTX works great as a weather/water barrier. It is no doubt slightly warmer than a non-GTX shoe, but that is expected. The lacing system is great...easy to use, holds consistently, super cool, and durable (I've never broken one regardless of how tight I crank them, within reason). IMO, there is no better all-weather trail running shoe available.
Best Shoes I've worn
September 25, 2009
I am a P.E teacher and I bought these shoes because I am in the grass and fields all day long. I've been going through mud and all kinds of terrain and they are one of the best shoes I've ever worn. My feet do not ache. Overall, great shoes, great product, and great design. I would definitely buy the same pair again in multiple colors.
great, comfortable shoe- ideal for hiking , running
February 02, 2010
Nice goretex uppers- very protective. comfortable fit. easy to adjust lace system
January 15, 2009
Shoe seems to run a bit long and narrow.. I usually wear a 9.5, but ordered a 9 and it was still a little long and narrow. Other than that, the shoe has some great high-density tread that looks like it will last despite being very light weight
5 mile of daily hard walking/running in NYC. Can't beat um..
March 11, 2010
I recently upgraded to a pair of the Solomon Pro Ultra GTS and they are nothing short of sensational... Durable, comfortable,etc Buy them, you wont regret it
Phenomenol All Around Shoe!!!
March 14, 2009
Great trail shoe, excellent cushion and breath-ability. Also good for everyday wear also. Fantastic winter shoe to keep your feet warm/dry during everyday trekking around town during rain, sleet or snow.
Snowy Road Running
December 28, 2010
I wanted a shoe for long runs on snowy country roads while marathon training. I bought a pair 1/2 size larger then usual (size 11) to allow two pair of socks but they run a bit large and could have gone with my usual size. I have a wide foot and they were plenty wide in the forefoot for me. I did a couple of short runs to test the feel and then did 22 miles in them on a road with 2-3 inches of snow with no problems. My feet stayed warm and dry. I have not had them long enough to evaluate wear but my initial impression is excellent. I took a bit to get used to the lacing system but have now decided I like it. Snow traction is good. Not cheap but worth the cost. Excellent shoe overall.
Good all aroung running shoe.
September 06, 2012
The Salomon XA 3D Ultra GTX goes beyond my expectations for an athletic shoe. This is my 3rd pair of this type and my 6th Salomon footwear purchase. I use them for hiking, cycling and walking. The soles keep their traction on uneven paths and the support is superb. One feature I look for is the Gore-Tex membrane that keeps my feet dry especially when I travel to cold, wet environments. For me they are true to size. The quick lace feature is so convenient I'm afraid I've become lazy in lacing other athletic shoes. I do like the styling of these shoes; they're not flashy, but they do take notice. These shoes are not cheap, but they are worth every cent that I've spent and I highly recommend them.Pros: gore-tex membrane., true to size, good traction on the trails., nice styling., good foot support., quick lace feature., Cons: a bit pricey but worth it.
Love these shoes!
June 05, 2012
This will be my second pair of these shoes. I absolutely love them! The gortex in these shoes never fail and I've put them to the test. What I especially like about these shoes is the ability to store the laces out of the way in the "lace garage". When I'm biking, I never have to be concerned about my laces getting caught in the bike gears or pedals.Pros: lace garage, Cons: none
A super great shoe
December 05, 2010
These shoes are excellent! I love them and the return/exchange policy! I would recommend anyone to purchase these!Pros: Great value, Cons: Cost
Amazing Shoe AND EVEN BETTER SERVICE
October 26, 2009
There's not much I can say about this pair of fantastic shoes, but as a 1st time customer I already placed another order they take the worry about shopping online KEEP UP THE GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!
March 16, 2009
These shoes were purchased for my son who drives a truck hauling vehicles. These are waterproof, and they grip on slippery services. We will continue to buy these shoes.
quality was less than desired
June 26, 2012
had the pair of shoes for a 3 weeks, used it for walking about and hiking in the south western parts of china and the material started to fray around the edges of the shoe, near the toes of foot where it flexes . looks like the inflection folds / areas are causing it to chaff and thus started to fray. amazingly it happened on both the left and right shoe. a small tear was the result (about 1/2 inch). never had that happening to me ever on a salomon, material seems to be less than durable. hope this is not the start of a trend.Pros: warm, comfortable, Cons: lack of durability
Best Trail Shoes Ever!
August 17, 2011
I am on my fourth pair of Salomon XA Pro GTX shoes and I will continue to buy them every time I wear a pair out. Few things in the outdoor world are usually worth the high price but these are. I work outside and backpack alot as well and basically wear them every single day. I can't quite get a full year out of them before I have destroyed them but pretty close and much longer than any other shoe I have tried. The sizing is true to fit and they are as comfortable as any running shoe, house shoe or anything else you could wear. Best GTX shoes ever!
Great Winter Shoe
December 12, 2010
I purchased these shoes for my husband who has very narrow feet and in the past has used orthotics. He generally walks for more than 8 hours per day, a couple hours of which are spent outside. He loves these shoes, he can lace them snugly around his narrow feet and does not need any additional cushion or support. His feet stay dry and comfortable for the entire day. Both of our sons have also purchased these shoes and have each worn them daily through wet Oregon winters. Highly recommend!Pros: Great design, Build quality, Lasts forever, Performance, Ease of use, Great value
Great Shoes for Old Feet
March 16, 2011
At 75 years old I have walked through hundreds of pairs of walking and running shoes. These shoes are so comfortable and stable that I wear them for every day wear. Thank goodness sneakers have become the fashion in the West. These shoes have also reduced the number of aches and pains in my feet, ankles, knees and hips... without doubt. The fast lace system also makes them a Godsend for elderly people. Getting them through Altrec has also been amazingly easy, especially since they are available in very few stores.
My husbunds favorite shoes!
December 22, 2012
My husbund love this running shoes, and I'm beyond happy with prices and service from alter.com My husband is very picky about the running shoes , this are perfect for him . Keep his feet worm and dry while out running regardless of the weather !
January 04, 2011
Pretty awesome shoe. I bought these to wear walking to and from work in New York City and they've been great. They're very comfortable and warm for my commute. (however I can see how they would be warm in the summer) I used them during the recent blizzard we had and they dominated the snow and kept my foot very dry. I don't take them off on the weekends and they have quickly become my favorite all around shoe. While I don't use them for trail running, they have proven to be a great hiking shoe as well.
"Ultra" is the word
September 06, 2011
As an ecstatic owner of the XA Pro 3D MID GTX, I was looking for a low-cut shoe that had the same great features. And the XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX has all of them and more. I would recommend this shoe to anyone who wants to run trails that include streams and wet areas where the GTX keeps one dry.
Top Notch Trail Shoe
November 30, 2009
Excellent trail shoe! These are my 3rd pair of Salomon trail running shoes. I run up Pikes Peak and the Front Range in CO. I have tried other shoes, but nothing has come close to the durability and performance that Salomon offers. I highly recommend these trail runners.
June 01, 2011
I buy these types of shoes every few years for hiking and wearing around town, especially when its raining. Bottom line - this is the perfect shoe. It is lightweight, true to fit, and very comfortable. The lacing system is the bonus. I've had several different pairs of this shoe type by other clothing companies, but this is the best by far. It has a great look and isn't as bulky as the other brands.
December 07, 2010
I've had these shoes for about six months now and I really can't say anything bad about them. They are comfortable, waterproof, and pretty light. Buying shoes online can always be a little hard because of different sizes, but these were true to the same size I wear in Merrell's and Patagonia's. I would recommend them not only for running but as an everyday shoe. The lacing system is also great.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use, Cons: Cost
Great all terrain shoe
November 19, 2013
I have had these trail running shoes for a few years and have used them all kinds of different conditions. They have held up great are very well constructed. This was my first Salomon shoe purchase and definitely not my last.

perfect sizing and quality is great
December 16, 2010
I received my shoes several days ago and they fit perfectly. They are comfortable, and easy to put on and take off. The design and colors of the shoe are exactly as shown on the website. We're getting to our rainy season so I'm going to put them to the real test very soon.Pros: Great design, Ease of use, Great value
love the lacing system
March 24, 2010
i wish more companies would offer shoes with lacing systems like these do. I've worn these shoes on a daily basis since i got them in the mail and couldn't be more pleased with my purchase
March 13, 2009
i have had salomon shoes in the past and this one fits no different. it is amazingly comfortable, supportive and responsive. fits true to size. will use this for three months backpacking in europe and gtx will help with all of their rain in the north, cant wait!
July 30, 2010
3rd pair; enough said?
Incredible support very comfortable
February 07, 2009
This shoe is well designed. Provides ample support and comfort. The shoe provided very good traction running on the side of the road with 1-2" snow on the ground. A bit stiffer than my street shoes but I assume the added cushion comes from running on the trail. In addition the pull and set lacing is a really cool feature of this shoe's design and the laces hold tight. I highly recommend this shoe to any serious trail or off-road runner.

The Salomon XA 3D Ultra GTX lives up to my high expectations. This is my 3rd pair. I use them for hiking, backpacking, cycling and walking around town.

This shoe is so comfortable and is great in wet conditions.
February 24, 2009
I wear a size 11 in Nike shoes and 11 in Salomon feels perfect. This is probably the best shoe I own. I like it even better than my Montrails
Great shoe for trails
April 06, 2010
This is my second pair of XA Pro 3D GTX. I live in Alabama and run trails on the mountain near my house first pair last a full year. Gore-Tex liner works well and will keep you feet dry if you dont go in over the top. Shoe runs narrow so I size up 1/2 and still have to break them in some. Lacing system is too sweet. As always great service from Altrec, had my size and color in stock with competitive price.
Great waterproof trail runner, odd fit
January 11, 2010
I owned a pair of Solomon shoes before (Speed Cross 2) and they fit like a glove. These run about a half size too large, and the toe is too boxy. The end of my foot just swims around at the toe. I love the lacing on the Solomon shoes, but the lace pouch you are supposed to tuck the laces into at the tongue just looks too bloated and catches your pants. The shoe felt very stiff initially, but eventually broke in. Bottom line, this is a great tough, waterproof shoe, and is more at home doing things like winter hiking and disc golf than trail running.
great shoe for winter/trail
December 15, 2010
overall a quality product. stays dry running on the trail and running in the winter/rain. also can use snowshoeing. on my 2nd pair.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Ease of use
Well Built Shoe, but...
December 20, 2012
After reading the reviews, I decided to try this shoe. I know Solomon's reputation and felt confident that this would be a good buy. I have a narrow foot and am small in stature, so the right shoe is never easy to find. The shoe fit o.k. and I did 10 miles out of the box with no hot spots. However, the shoe never felt right. The construction is very rigid and the soles seemed rough on my feet, almost bumpy. The sides rest right under my ankles and while not chafing my ankles, they always felt a bit uncomfortable. This shoe is obviously well made (as it should be at this price), but it is not right for me. I think it might be more suitable for someone who is much larger than I am. I have worn Asics for about 30 years and should have looked at their new Gore-Tex trail shoe. That will be my next order as soon as Altrec gets them back in stock.Pros: stability, constuction, waterproof, Cons: hard on the bottom of the feet, too wide, too high on the sides, too heavy
Great shoe right out of the box
May 17, 2010
I really like this shoe. Wore it out of the box and hiked all day at Zion NP. No discomfort, no blisters, no break-in time. Lightweight and comfortable and sure-footed.
the best shoe i have ever had
February 02, 2010
these things are great they keep my feet dry and are breathable. they are extremely comfortable
Very comfy shoe
November 29, 2010
I did buy this shoe a 1/2 size bigger than street shoe. Glad I did, it fits great. I wore it around for a couple months & then took them to Utah over slickrock & through creeks & stuff. Did not have a problem. Soles could be a bit thicker for these uses but that can just be a personal issue for me. They were dirty as heck when I brought them back & put them in the washer & months later they still look & feel new.Pros: Great design, Build quality, Performance
Not a very durable upper
February 02, 2010
I loved the looks, traction, and lacing system, but was disappointed that these shoes did not last nearly as long as The North Face trail running shoes that I previously had. Multiple areas on each shoe tore and wore through much too soon. This show runs narrow.
