SALOMON XA PRO 3D UL­TRA 2 GTX TRAIL RUN­NING/HIK­ING SHOE £115

I used to only wear slip­per-thin fell run­ning shoes be­fore

I had a near-fa­tal rock-climb­ing fall a few years back. Now, with a fused left an­kle, I need more cush­ion­ing and sup­port in my train­ers, and off-road I have found noth­ing to com­pare to Salomon. They have an ar­ray of dif­fer­ent styles, and change their colours by the month. If I think con­di­tions will be soggy, I go for the XA Pro 3D with Gore-Tex. I hacked the soles off this par­tic­u­lar pair so I could fit them into my kayak when I was do­ing the De­vizes to West­min­ster ca­noe race. Check out Steve's tweets @SteveBack­shall
