Rated 5 out of 5 by HuntValGuy So far, so good
Put them on this morning for the first time and since the temperature outside is below zero, will test them out in the house, stairs and all. One question: is this the same shoe that is offered on the company's website as X-SCREAM ref. 355663? (I checked their website to see what their warranty entailed--just curious although I know L.L. Bean stands behind anything they sell 100%.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMIPro easy as pull the laces and go!
These shoes are fantastic!! Just took them out for a hike and really enjoyed all aspects of them. The lace system better be patented because it's prefect. I was worried the clip that snugs them in place would slip, but it did not at all. the way you tuck the excess away is very clever. the mesh let's tons of air travel through the shoe, keeping your feet nice and cool and should be great for this summer. the best thing in my opinion is the resting angle of the sole. the heel is elevated more than usual and toes are pretty low to the surface. when running it feels very right, even steep downhill. Pretty great design!!!

Once I got them on, they were very comfortable. I managed to get the shoelaces fastened and wore them one day. But the next day, I couldn't get the laces to work. I puzzled with them for five or ten minutes, figured I could probably get it to work if I spent some more time with it, and decided I had better things to do. I don't think they were broken, but I just couldn't figure out the hardware.I wish these shoes had regular shoelaces. I've already figured out regular shoelaces. I am returning the Salomons for a refund. Thank you, LL, for the 100% guarantee.

The XR Salomon trail shoes are an excellent fit, very comfortable. I typically look for comfortable shoes and was a bit worried when I ordered them. LL Bean's return policy took away that fear, and they turned out to be just fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by PirateLookingBack Great fit and comfort
I got the shoes for walking my two beagles who are vigorous and often going in different directions while following various scents. This has resulted in some discomfort especially of the toes when walking in previous shoes I have used, but these feel much better.

Roomy toe box, wide mid foot, snug taper to the heal.
Speed laces are the Bomb, solid light weight shoe.
Good cushion and response as you run.
I'm Very Happy!
