These shoes were my first pair of trail runners. I recently moved to an area with a lot of non road running trails(gravel/dirt). These shoes are great for that. I also wear them as everyday shoes to work where I am on my feet for 6-7 hours at a time and I have to say these shoes are super comfortable. I will say that the laces are shorter than I would have liked though. All in all these shoes look great, feel great, and are good for many different uses other than trail running.
Bought these about a year ago and rotate through running shoes depending on my route. I use these about 50/50 pavement n dirt trail. Sole is wearing stellar, doesn't pick up rocks, great traction (on anything! snow, dirt, mud, grass, slick rock, pavement, you name it!)... Uppers provide good support and are comfy but toe box on right shoe is splitting along seam in two spots now. I expected more from Salomon, however they've lasted the better share of a year and a few hundred miles of abuse. Will look more for their upper end line of kicks for my next purchase. Might also note they are traditional lace ups not the quick lace of their higher end models which takes an extra minute to tuck in for the mtn bike / hiking journeys
I'm in Portland, OR for the summer, so I wanted a decent trail running shoe that could get me up and down trails in the Gorge and around Forest Park. I've had these puppies for a few weeks and have taken them on a half dozen trail runs and I love them. These are great on trails with lots of rocks and roots - enough cushion to protect your feet but not so much that it feels like you're rocking platform shoes. If you're not into the barefoot craze on trails with jagged rocks, these are great. The toe is roomy enough that your toes aren't getting all jammed up coming down steep trails too. I'm a big fan.
