Product Review: My Favorite Travel Shoe

So every trip that I have taken leads me to an adventure that I had not expected or planned for in advance of leaving. Not he road it seems that a surprise rain, un-expected mud, rocky trails, etc cause me to need a shoe that can do it all - sort of a Swiss Army Knife of shoes. For me, that shoe is the Salomon XA Pro trail runner.

The shoe has four great features; (1) is it very comfortable *, (2) it has non-break shoe laces for getting in and out of them quickly, (3) it has a great toe-bump so walking, hiking, and trail running can all be done with the same shoe, and (4) it has quick drying breathable mesh ** which is important for those with stinky feet.
