A technical sneaker made with rubber, synthetic, and textile material, the Xt-Wings 2 is a shoe meant for the trails with an upper construction designed to lock your foot in place (which in turn enhances stability), and a 10 mm drop between the heel and forefront of the shoe that further helps with protecting your feet as you walk, while enhancing your stride at the same time.

Best Salomon Sneaker for Walking

  • Sizes: 4 - 14
  • Lace style: Quicklace

A comfortable shoe for walking is essential to achieve optimal results in your fitness progress, and the Speedcross 3 from Salomon is one of the best to get you started in that regard. A staple piece that has definitely drawn some inspiration from some of the brand's nature/outdoorsy models in terms of its textile and rubber construction along with the Quicklace technology, the Speedcross 3 is loved by buyers for its lightweight build, comfortable cushioning, and what Salomon describes as a "monster grip." Or as one buyer notes: "Had it for years... 10-15, I can't even recall when I exactly bought it, and I still wear them! It's my year round shoes, and I especially loved how it performed in the Ontario winters. But just any other, it has to end. And so I've just bought another pair!"

Another adds: "Love the way the Salomon designs a shoe that is not only comfortable, looks great and os able to withstand all types of terrain and weather conditions. Have worn Salomons for a great number of years and would highly recommend them to anyone that is looking for a great hiking shoe!" Priced at $140 via Salomon, this is another solid pickup.

Best Salomon Sneaker for Style

  • Sizes: 4 - 14
  • Lace style: Quicklace

We got it—the shoe that doesn't technically need to be purchased for any particular activity or event, but should be copped because they are fly as hell. A collaboration between Salomon and Philéo Landowski that's cut with a knitted upper and grippy rubber outsole strong to where you could take it outdoors if needed, the brand gives you the choice of either a traditional black color, or you can up the couture element a bit by opting for the Cradle Pink option—the same type of pink Cam'ron wore that legendary night in 2002 when he stepped out in that baby pink fur ensemble during Fashion Week. We're not saying the Cradle Pink color will automatically transform you into Cam'ron, but it wouldn't hurt to try now would it?

Best Salomon Collaboration Sneaker

  • Sizes: 7 - 10
  • Lace style: No laces/pull-on

Speaking of things that belong at fashion week—gents, the MM6 Maison Margiela x Salomon Cross Mid Hiking Sneakers—the magnificent one of a kind sneaker with the mythical power of Margiela. From a technical standpoint, this is your standard Salomon shoe—the textile, rubber, and synthetic construction, but what separates the Cross Mid from its brothers and sisters are the stylistic details such as the chunky lug sole, the adjustable drawcord that pulls everything together once you slip the shoe on, the technical fabric upper, and the reinforced round toe as the finishing detail. The Cross Mid's are indeed an elevated look, but that's what you get when you bring Margiela into the fold. Priced at $355, sizes range from 7 - 10.


6. Salomon Elixir Gore-Tex

Best Technical Salomon Sneaker

  • Sizes: 7 - 14
  • Lace style: Regular laces

Folks, the Salomon Elixir Gore-Tex is one of the few in Salomon's current catalog that doesn't have the Quicklace system, so that means you're going to have to lace them up regularly. That said, the Elixir Gore-Tex makes for an elite running shoe as they are lightweight (despite the fact that they don't look like it at first glance), have a cushioned midsole and thick rubber outsole for comfort, and are built for day-long wear. A waterproof membrane accompanies the Elixir Gore-Tex along with very helpful padded zones in the collar and tongue regions of the foot that further promote comfort.

The Elixir Gore-Tex is also well liked by buyers with one reviewer stating: "The best cross trainers I’ve owned .I spend all day on my feet ,like slippers in the house and outside on snow and a muddy autumn never once felt they would let me down ,wishing for some more snow for long walks in them." You can purchase for roughly $140 at Salomon, and there's three different colors to work with.

  • Sizes: 4 - 13
  • Lace style: Quicklace

A futuristic Salomon shoe that makes you look like you're in music video from 1999, the XT-Quest Slam Jam was hard to get your hands on when it was first released, and still remains hard to get your hands on as it's only available to shop at certain places (and a hefty price tag comes with it as well). A partnership with the Italian apparel and shoemaker Slam Jam, the XT-Quest build upon the standard Quest models in terms of the synthetic textile material, padding, lacing system and the whole nine yards, but its the design and personal elements of Slam Jam into it giving you a technical outdoor shoe that remains avant garde in its design.

A Palace remix of the XT-Wings 2 is something at any and all Salomon lover should consider as an addition to their sneaker collection.

  • Sizes: 4 - 13
  • Lace style: Quicklace

And since we're on the topic of Salomon collaborations, we can't forget the Salomon XT-Wings 2 JJJJound Lapis Blue, which has the retro 1980s/1990s basketball gym look to it that's beginning to become popular amongst current fashion trends again. Same deal here—tradition XT-Wings moulding as these shoes sport synthetic/rubber/textile craftsmanship and a padded midsole that helps provide comfort alongside and a sturdy outsole, but JJJJound handled the design components—which is very "JJJJound" if you are familiar with the brand. You've got the breathability, the sick design, and the vintage look—that means an automatic cop correct?

Screen Shot 2024 01 25 at 3.39.29 PM
  • Sizes: 7 - 14
  • Lace style: Quicklace

Sometimes modern simplicity is all that's needed. Modern simplicity is totally a term we just kind of made up on the spot, but it fits the bill for OUTPULSE sneakers—a cuts straight to the chase and hones in on the basics shoe that remains a top-seller for Salomon. A shoe that hit all the marks: Energy Blade TPU, rubber construction, soft EVA compounds that make for a comfortable midsole and more, the OUTPULSE has proven successful and making outdoor adventures and activities a success. "Wanted to try a Salomon after taking a few years off from them due to what I felt was a drop off in quality. I have to say I think these shoes have taken a very good step forward in that dept. shoes fit true to size IMO and seem to be of very good quality. Materials seem good and the shoe is lightweight and very comfortable. Still not up to my Vasquez’s w/r to a total shoe rating IMO, but still solid," says a reviewer.

Another reviewer adds: "I’ve been looking for a hiking shoe that doesn’t look ridiculous so I landed on these and they performed great. Toe box is very roomy, and they’re comfy. No blisters after my first 4 mile hike in them. The tongue does drift to the side a little, but not enough to bother me. Great shoe." Sitting around $100, the OUTPULSE is a shoe very much worth the price.

Things to consider when shopping for Salomons:

Here are some things to keep in mind when it shopping for Salomons:

What you need them for: What do you need your Salomons for? Is it to hike or hit the trails? Are you using them as a running or walking shoe? A cycling shoe? Do you plan on just wearing them casually? You'll need to make this determination before buying because Salomon provides different types of shoes for different purposes.

Sole tread: If you are only wearing for casual reasons you won't need to worry about the sole tread as much. However, if you are using your Salomons for the trails, running, walking, etc., then you will need to make sure the sole tread is a durable one filled with grip and traction. This is the case with just about every Salomon shoe as the brand does a good job in making sure they create sneakers with sturdy outsoles, so it likely will come down to which type of outsole you prefer (some Salomon shoes have chunky outsoles).

Fit: Salomon is a brand that gets it right when it comes to the fits as we didn't see very many reviews complaining on their shoes not fitting well. For the most part, Salomon makes their sneakers true to size. However, you can always look through user reviews to read customer experiences should you still have questions.

Comfort: The comfort is important as well when it comes to Salomon shoes, and it's not something you really have to worry about when it comes to the brand as very few of the reviews we saw were about the overall comfort. Salomon does a great job in making shoes with comfortable padding, EVA midsoles, and arch support, but again you can look through user reviews to see the experiences of other buyers should you have more questions.

Durability: In scouring user reviews, we found that most Salomon shoes have a lifespan of at least several years (sometimes longer). Obviously Salomon shoes that are frequently used for hiking aren't going to last as long as one of their casual walking shoes, but the exterior crafting of Salomon sneakers are extra tough, meaning you'll be able to get a reasonable amount of time out of them before having to replace.

Ankle support: The ankle support is something to keep in mind as well. Many of the models in Salomon's catalog are similarly constructed (low top with stabilized heel and ankle support), so you'll find the same type of ankle protection across their catalog. The most important thing, however, is that Salomon makes ankle cushioning and stabilization a priority, so you won't have to worry in that regard.

FAQs about Salomons:

Here are some frequently asked questions about Salomons:

What are the best Salomon hiking shoes?

There are plenty of great Salomon hiking shoes, but our top choice is the ACS+ OG Hiking Sneaker for its technical construction and stride-stabilizing Agile Chassis System.

Are Salomons still trendy in 2024?

Absolutely! Salomons remain amongst some of the most popular (especially when it comes to outdoor shoes) sneakers on the planet, with loads of sales each day, and regular collaborations with some other extremely popular brands.

Why is the Salomon XT-6 popular right now?

The Salomon XT-6 is very popular due to its protection, grip, and traction that makes a great shoe for the trails and outdoors. The only reason why we didn't include it in our list it's pretty much all sold out (and will probably will be all sold out soon unless Salomon does a big restock). You can check out the remaining the models in the link above to see if it's a match.

What are the popular Salomons called?

The popular Salomons are just simply referred to as the XT-6, but the Speedcross, the XT-Wings, and other entries on this list have a similar aesthetic and structure.
