Breathable Mesh Upper and Lightweight Midsole
The XR Mission features a mesh upper that provides ventilation to reduce heat and moisture inside your shoes. A molded EVA midsole provides cushioning while reducing overall shoe weight.
Sensifit and Sensiflex for Comfortable Fit
Salomon's Sensifit technology cradles the upper instep, providing a precise and secure fit that promotes natural rolling motion. Sensiflex construction offers both lateral support and stretch in the forefoot to accommodate foot expansion during the course of your run, while an oversized tendon provides a smooth transition from heel strike to toe-off with energy return for long runs.
Contagrip Outsole for Traction
The XR Mission's chevron Contagrip tread lets you move forward quickly while providing traction for slippery surfaces. A protective toe cap ensures a strong foothold.
Footbed Keeps Feet Comfortable
The footbed is designed with cushioning foam to reduce friction, keeping your feet comfortable as you run. EVA in the heel provides extra cushion for heel striking.
Quicklace System for Optimal Fit
The XR Mission's minimalistic lacing system lets you tighten laces in one pull for a customized fit. A lace pocket keeps laces secure and out of your way.

Size aside, I am pleased with the shoe. I am a power walker, averaging 100-120 miles/week, and I wanted a shoe with lots of support that could hold up under this level of workout. This shoe certainly fits that need. The first thing I noticed was how nicely the ventilated toe allows the air to go through the shoe. The extreme arch support is fantastic and the wide base really keeps my knees in line, saving me a lot of pre-taping. And, as you can see, the shoe is a "looker". I get lots of compliments whenever I wear them. All in all, I'm pleased with the shoe. I would just suggest that, unless you have really long toes, order a full size smaller than you usually wear. Definitely not recommended for a long, narrow foot.
So, I decided to use the guide for a proper fit and found out 3 things:
1) I strike with the ball of my foot first (due to an old knee injury, its the only way I CAN run without it hurting too much).
2) I have medium to high arches
3) I like a large toe box because I hate the feeling of being cramped and pinched around my toes (despite having narrowish feet)
The guide recommended these sneakers, so I decided to purchase them. I went with the Black/Light Onix.
Fit: I usually wear a 5.5 women's, but I tend to go with a 6 as I tightness around my feet to be very uncomfortable. I found the XR Mission to be a perfect fit for someone that is between a 5.5 and 6.
Quality: the materials are fantastic, it's light and breathable, and the draw string is PERFECT. It provides enough tightness and support as a lace, without the hassle.
Color: Great color selection for those that like the wild and crazy typical running shoe colors and more conservative colors for those that don't want to scream.
Comfort: I have never worn a more comfortable shoe in my life. I put them on and it instantly made me want to go for a run, it was that comfortable to me. I felt support in my arch, heel, and toe areas that made my jog very enjoyable.Read more ›
The fit of this shoe is as expected, however, it has almost no cushion on the sole. The cushion states OrrhoLite in large letters as if it's a great brand. No. I can feel every rock I step on as I run or even walk, Very uncomfortable. I should have returned them, but it's too late now. I keep putting my old Adidases on and they never let me down.
SAVE YOUR MONEY.

These are very comfortable. They are a little bit tight around the ankle but OK. The back piece pushes into my heel a bit. Still comfortable though. Not very squishy.Published 1 day ago by Marlee Coria
