Salomon X-Scream 3D Launch


Salomon is a brand sought after for those game in the sports of adventure, hiking and trail running. My first touch with the Salomon brand was quite recent.  I somehow knew Salomon (after all the buzz) is THE shoes in order to survive the 2 days ‘Sabah Adventure Challenge’ in 2011, and survived I did in Tambunan. The shoe made me feel I am in good hands (and a 4th placing for Women’s Category) after 70km ++ ordeal with nature ! I guess that was what Salomon was all about !

Fast forward to 2015, I found myself present at the launch of the Salomon X-Scream 3D shoe launch. Could have sounded like those simulator rides you find at the theme parks ! Come, come let’s get you excited !

The shoe

Model: X-Scream 3D

Type:City Trail

The shoe is designed for adaptive fit, grip and responsive ride. Runner’s World reviewed it as a sturdy multitasker as it is designed for both city running on variety of surfaces (ie tarmac, gravel, pebble,grass etc) and easy trail.

The big deal

The 3D technology (Flex, Ride, Grip) : Provides durability and multi-surface grip, an aspect important when running on various surfaces around the city.The shoe provides enough cushioning for hard surfaces.

Salomon’s Sensifit and Quicklace systems provides outstanding foothold and comfort.

Contagrip outsole :  Ensure grip on hard or loose surfaces, and long wear on pavement

This is only a short list of the technologies put in together in Salomon’s shoe design. What will matter most to runners is how the shoe will function and work for them.

Another feature which attracted me is Salomon’s 3D Flex technology (Sensiflex fabric) which allows foot expansion and release pressure of the feet, especially for runners with wider feet.

Its for you if you are :

  • Looking for a shoe which fits into both city running (read: diverse urban landscape) and light trail
  • Looking for that perfect neutral shoes for everyday running and routine
  • Looking for durability (the shoe doesn’t wear out so easily) and just enough cushioning for longer runs

Not exactly for you if you are:

  • In need of extra support and more cushioning ie due to your weight
  • Thinking of shoes which you can take for extreme trails or hiking
