Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 GTX and Mizuno Wave Rider 15 Review

World of Outdoor and Mizuno at The Garden on October, some items discount to 30% and some of the past season shoes reduced up to 50% which is irresistible for me. In result, 2 pair of shoes as below,

i) Salomon XA Pro 3D ULTRA 2 GTX

My Timberland 57166 aged more than 3 years, lugs are consumed to lost it’s grip and outsoles are getting lesser to the point it hurts my legs during long hours hike. Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra 2 GTX are basically the best pair i have ever put on feet, excellent grip on any surface encountered, feels protected, excellent stability, lightweight and breathable. The GTX version stands for GORE-TEX® Fabrics which helps stay dry and comfortable.

As most of the Salomon Trail running shoes, it comes with Quiklace system, OrthoLite® footbeds and Sensifit™, with extra features such as Protective rubber toe cap, 3D advanced chassis™ and Energy Cell 2.

ii) Mizuno Wave Rider 15 (Lime Punch-Anthracite)

Basically the same shoe as previous Mizuno Wave Rider 15 (Anniversary Limited Edition), bought an extra one since the previous’s soles is getting lesser on the forefoot area. Been running it for few months, and these is what i found:

  • On 20KM easy run, the extra cushion on forefoot does help to avoid ball foot from hurting
  • Running 6KM fast on flat road with Mizuno Waver Rider feels effortless
  • Mizuno Wave Rider 15 is not a rock magnet like Salomon XR Crossmax, which is good
