Running in trail running shoes just to do a few laps of forest trails was too stupid for me, so I looked at the Salomon S-Lab X-Series.
"City Trail" - this is the purpose that Salomon gives the shoe on the way. Sounds exactly like what I intend to do with it. After over 150 kilometers, the shoe has blossomed to my darling!
Construction and processing
Compared to the trailrunners I've run so far, the X-Series is a true one lightweight: He weighs 237 grams. The few grams are definitely installed in the right places. Soft and light everywhere, it feels light when slipped on and off stretchy upper is not felt, that has something of sock with sole. His 8mm blowing up and a not too soft damping he comes to my running style very well, the vote is balanced and well done.
The toe box is pleasantly wide, and yet I do not have the feeling to "swim", the shoe sits here sock moderate. Good and fast also the binding of the shoe with the Quicklace-System. Instead of laces, there is a simple one-hand closure. Pulling, fits. The remaining, protruding band with the holding system disappears in a small pocket on the tongue and does not bother while running.
Out and about with the X-Series
I've walked it now for over 150 kilometers on asphalt and gravel, on dry and damp forest soil and easy trails, and never had the feeling that the shoe lacks grip. Responsible for this is the Contragrip-Sole with different zones. For mud and snow I would then but put on more profile, but I would have to try.
Just up asphalt makes this quiet and fast "tap-tap-tap" extremely fun. Long gravel sectionscan run very well, you can feel the ground, without the stones would depress uncomfortable. Even on ours 45 kilometers of seaside hike I would not have wanted to wear another shoe.
The only drawback so far: after a few kilometers, it may be that I have to readjust the Quicklace system, so pull back a little closer. Whether that's because it loosens itself or whether it's on my feet, I can not say.
