Salomon XR Crossmax Neutral–($130)

2010 Winter Running Shoe Review

This cushioned trail runner is designed just for women with a women-specific last. Our testers liked its light weight and recommended it for either doing trail workouts or races off-road. The shoe features Sensifit, which wraps the foot with a secure fit. Our testers, particularly those with narrow feet, appreciated this design element. The Quicklace system took a little getting used to, but testers appreciated the ability to tuck in laces. They also reported that traction was adequate but not too aggressive, and that this is a good, all-around trail running shoe that would also work well for light hiking.
