Here are the latest tactical offroad sneakers with subdued colour scheme from Salomon. These have a superb fit & comfort and provide protection, while the black colour means these are suitable for military/LE use, or anyone who doesn’t like to wear a bright logo. Lined with waterproof Gore-Tex.

Features

As an answer to popular demand (and old models being used in harsher conditions than anyone could guess) these have new features:

  • Double or triple stitching on the top of the shoe
  • Tougher textile, similar to the 4D models
  • Reinforcement pad next to the toes
  • Instep reinforcement for rope descents
  • Less overlapping fabrics
  • More aggressive tread for improved grip
  • Improved rope brakes

Here are the good old ones, carried over from the previous model:

  • Non-marking sole with a very intricate cushion midsole
  • Inner lined with breathable fabric
  • Gore-Tex membrane
  • Cushioned, porous insole
  • Welcome to the future - here we don't have to tie laces. Just use the plastic slider thing to pull the laces taut and stuff them inside the little pocket on the tongue.
  • Weight for one shoe slightly below 500 grams (Size UK 8 / 42)

Official measuring guide for Salomon footwear

Tools:

  • Use a shoe box or a wall with a 90° angle.
  • Find a sheet of paper or a sheet of cardboard, a ruler and a pen.

What should you do next?

  • Make sure that you are wearing the same socks that you would normally wear with this type of boot.
  • Wearing these socks, stand on the sheet of paper and place the outside of your foot against the wall or place your foot in the shoe box with your heel wedged firmly against the back.
  • Then use your pen and ruler to draw a line just in front of your big toe.
  • Measure the distance between the wall or the side of the shoe box and the line that you have just drawn.
  • Find this measurement in millimetres in the chart. If you fall between sizes, pick the larger one. A couple of mm extra length of a shoe doesn't hurt, but even a slightly too short shoe is bad.

Made by Salomon

Known for sports & offroad shoes, Salomon has nowadays ventured to military territory too. As one could imagine, the footwear they make is a mix of military requirements and sport shoe features.

Made in Vietnam with tough specs and QC.

A great, quality item but as with a lot of Solomon footwear they are quite narrow.

I would not really recommend to a friend because I don't want them looking as cool as me.

Salomon has become my favorite shoe brand lately. The XA Mid GTX is my latest addition. First impression is good really good. Very comfortable and easy to lace. I replaced the insole with one from Jalas but apart from that am I quite happy. One more thing though Salomon are narrow so if you have wide hooves look somewhere else .We have a dresscode (more or less) where I work.One is "encouraged" to have black shoes and these are black. Enough said!

Comfy and lightweight. Only con is that the eyelets are very tiny if you ever want to replace the laces. People with wide feet will also encounter the lacing problem, because a solution to the narrowness of the shoes is to move the lacing up one notch (not use the lowest two eyelets).

Erittäin hyvät kengät, niin arkeen kuin urheiluun. Ainoa huono puoli on se, että pääliompeleet hajoavat nopeasti peukkuvarpaan päkiän kohdilta, mikä oli sama ongelma jo vanhemmassa mallissa.

Hyvät ja huonot. Hyvät ominaisuudet, mutta itsellä huono onni ja maanantai: ekaan pariin tuli jalkapöytään pieni ja syvä viilto, goretex rikki. Toisesta parista on Akilles jänteen kohdalla oleva pehmuste repeytynyt.
