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.

I bought the first pair in December and have been wearing them ever since. Ordered 2 more in fun colors. I work as a hair stylist and average 10 to 14 hours a day on my feet plus walk an additional 10 miles a week for exercise and these shoes have been fabulous!

My usual shoe is the Salomon XA pro, I was looking for a slightly lighter weight Salomon, and ordered the Mission. these are Salomon-sized that is for most runners they will seem about 1/2 size larger than say an Adidas. the heel pocket seems a bit deeper than the XA pros, with a wide enough forefoot, but otherwise the fit seems reasonable close to the XA pros. i have only been out running in these up to 2 hrs or so at a time (in some snow, some mud), but they are billed as a short to medium distance shoe, so that is probably within their intended use. I have fairly high arches and don't need or want extreme motion control and these shoes do not seem to be over-structured. I have worn Salomons for a number of years, and i am happy to add these shoes to my Salomon shoe quiver.

I'd also recommend: Adidas or Asics

I knew as soon as I put them on, I loved them. It is a great shoe, comfortable, lightweight and provides plenty of support on trail or road. For Salomon shoes I go by the EUR size. If you haven't bought Salomon's before, size down 1/2 size.

I'd also recommend: Asics "33" (lt wt running)
