SALOMON S-Lab 2 XT Wings


Old slow shoes on the left and new fast shoes on the right.

Before the summer I realized that my old trusty running shoes had seen better days. That they were starting to fall apart was a sure sign that it was time to look for a new pair.

After some googling I realized that the “new” term trail running is what me with my orienteering background enjoy the most. One of the better shoes in that category is Salomon’s XT Wings in the S-Lab edition, so I got them.

And I absolutely love them!

They sit brilliant on my feet and the feeling when running is outstanding. I especially notice a big difference on steep bad quality tracks where I now can totally trust my feet not to slip which let me run more relaxed.
