    Haven’t had a better shoe!

    I have previously struggled with shoes causing different pains throughout my life, however these have been incredible. Sized off the scale online and bought without trying and they are unreal!

    Design Oversight and Poor Fit

    I have been a Salomon enthusiast for several years for all my hiking and running footwear. One of my favourites is the Speedcross series, particularly the Speedcross 4 which unfortunately is not produced anymore. I decided to try a new long distance trail running shoe, so I invested in the S/Lab Ultra 3 Shoe. I have had this shoe for several weeks and used it for all my running, with most runs between 5km and 10km but no long distance runs yet as I am not comfortable wearing the shoe. Despite Salomon’s brilliant quick lace system which normally enables a perfect fit, I can’t get this shoe to mould to my foot correctly. The biggest issue with my fit is in the heel. Regardless of how tight I lace the shoes or what socks I wear; my heel slides up and down ever so slightly causing hot spots and eventually blisters. Amplifying this is the lack of padding in the heel region and it seems like base of the heel is set further to the rear compared to other designs. One of the photos shows how thin the heel padding is. The next issue which is evident as soon as you put the shoe on is regarding the upper section of the ‘Molded EVA sockliner’ and the lack of a traditional shoe tongue. When you lean forward into a step, the sockliner digs into the front of your ankle. You can see in one of the photos that it’s digging into my ankle and my sock/skin is bulging as a result. Wearing thin socks did not fix this and loosening the lace system only exacerbated the above heel issue. The last two photos show what I can only explain as a design oversight with the lace storage pocket. When you tighten the quicklace system, the lace pocket sits under the highest lace crossover, so you need to hold this pocket open before tightening the lace to ensure you can store the quicklace. A more elegant solution would be for a pocket to sit on top of the laces. The reason I have given a two-star rating and not a one-star is because the sole is brilliant. There is a slightly larger drop from heel to toe than I would prefer but there is plenty of comfort when heel striking and the outer sole grips to any surface is any condition.

    S/Lab Ultra 3 Shoe review

    The shoes are great to hike/run in. Accessing the shoelace pocket to tuck the shoelaces in is very difficult because the laces are tied tightly across the opening. I’m surprised…..did no-one test this?

    Slab shoe buy

    The purchase experience was great and prompt with an unexpected saturday delivery. The shoes i’m trying to figure out how to make the work a bit better. they are my first pair of Salomon. So much I love about the design but a few key things are an issue. the first is how tight the inner shoe is around my foot. maybe I have a high arch? it’s ok at first but after running for an hour my foot swell and it’s just tight. the second is the shoe lace finger pull tap…since the inner shoe is tight I find i’m unable to comfortably stash the tab in the designated pocket for long duration without it becoming annoying…does Salomon off shoes for people with a higher arch or is it men/women one for all? Other than that, the grip is fantastic, the shoe is a well design tool for my foot…probably the best off road shoe I have ever ran with….and the water resistance allows them to be dry by next day another run…Well done on the design and I would be keen to buy another version but would like to better understand the shoe design and we might address this concern. I thought about cutting the inner liner a bit at the top arch of the foot to alleviate a little pressure??? any ideas? if I took out the in sole that would certainly work/help but then I lose valuable cushion.
