These shoes are definitely a statement! I get compliments each time a wear them. They are ultra light and great for bootcamp class and running. I don't wear them for other types of classes that require lateral movement just because of the tread. It took a while to get used to the "laces"...I still don't know if I've really figured it out but I don't mind it. Overall, a great shoe.

This is my first pair of Salomon's since their 'prototype' that they introduced in the late '90s. I returned that pair as the fit was too wide for my foot & the cord laces wouldn't tighten snugly enough as a result. While at a trail race last year, a Salomon rep convinced me that the design has come along way since they, so I gave them a 2nd chance. The fit is much improved & I love the comfort of the integrated tongue or sock fit! Downsides are that there are hot spots and I've blistered, even on short runs. The arch support is also a bit much for me even though I have a high arch. Unfortunately this pair has been relegated to being a flashy pair of street kicks for me.

Took 'em for a 4 mile walk upon arrival- was impressed with overall fit and besides, their wild and crazy colors make it fun! The lacing system is fast and the heel foam area near the Achilles isn't too high, which irritates on other styles of shoes. Highly recommended!

I'd also recommend: North Face

I just got these and love them. I haven't had a pair of athletic shoes that I really love in a long time--these are really fun and stylish, and also feel great. I was planning to buy Asics because they are so comfy--but my feet always felt tight in those--and would fall asleep after wearing them a couple hours. These have lots of support and space in the toe box which is great for my wide foot and frequent ingrown toenails with pressure from shoes. I have only wore them running errands and stuff--but I am sure they will be great with exercise. I like the laces--super easy and fast. My husband liked them so much he just ordered him a pair. :)

I have worn these shoes on gravel trails in the mountains for a month. The sole is very grippy and keeps my feet from slipping. The fabric covering the shoe is thin and has already torn. But the sole is perfect and that is what matters most to me.

I bought my first pair of these to wear on my hikes and loved them so much that I bought a pair to wear at work. I am an OR nurse and these are the first shoes that were comfortable right out of the box, and my feet never hurt even after walking 10-12,000 steps per day at work. They do have a wider toe box which is awesome for me since i began to develop a bunion from Danskos. I just ordered 2 more pairs...a new pair for work and one for everyday wear. Oh, and my first pair for work was the bright blue and I got compliments on them from almost everyone at work. Best shoes ever!

I loved the Salomon 3D Ultra 2 because of the excellent arch support. I wanted summer shoes and chose this model thinking it would be similar. If I had not worn them a full day the first time, I would have returned them. I was very disappointed; there is limited arch support. Though attractive, I feel they are over priced and over rated.
