Thank you for your feedback.
I stand at work all day behind a salon chair and these shoes are the best I've had for comfort, support and stability.
I've ran in them a dozen times since and they are the most comfortable running shoe I have ever owned.
These shoes fit well and are comfortable for my wide feet.

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.

    Got those shoes after I hurt my knees running on different shoes. Those shoes are great, offer great arch support and stabilize your foot.I am prone to hip and knee injuries if the shoes are not supportive enough. With these shoes, I haven't had a single injury. They are trail running shoes, but I run on them on a regular basis. I run on pavement,beach, grass, track, it holds up really good! If you need a lot of support, I recommend those shoes.

    Another great shoe from Salomon! I have very high arches and usually have to use an strong carbon fiber orthotic in my Brooks running shoes (for years!). Over the past 12 months, I have been transitioning to all Salomon because to the level of comfort and support of the high arch - works for me! No orthotic! I have the XR Mission this revew is for in the *awesome* celadon/papaya color combo, the XT Wings 2, and the XT Wings GTX for all weather hiking/trails/approach. They run large, you may have to go down a 1/2 size.

    Size: 8 B(M) USColor: Celedon/Papaya/Pop Green Verified Purchase
    I purchased this shoe based on all the reveiws that pointed out the high arch, deep instep and wide toe box. For some, this is a problem. For me, this sounded like exactly what I needed. And, it was. However, despite these exaggerated features, it still runs large. I generally wear an 8.5 (women's) based on my need for extra width. But if a shoe is wide enough, I only need an 8 in length. I was surprised to discover that even the 8 was too big. It really is a great shoe, but I could have gone down to a 7.5, a full size under my other running/walking shoes. I didn't want to add a separate insole, as this one has the high arch that I need, and I didn't want to mess with that. I solved the problem simply by wearing a very thick athletic sock.

    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.

    Size: 7 B(M) USColor: Light Onix/Black/Anemone Purple Verified Purchase
    I was worried about buying these. The reviews were right on target though. Everyone said to buy. Size or two smaller. In my case I normally wear an 8. I purchased a 7. They are so pretty and after a week of a semi snug fit they finally lossened up. I thought at first I made a horrible mistake by buying a size smaller but I now see why people said to do that. They were not comfy at first. I was disappointed but continued to wear them since I paid the $ I did. I will admit I'm the worlds worst about returning something so I just but the bullet and pretended I made a great purchase. Certainly don't want my husband thinking I can't handle online purchases lol. Like I said, after a week they fit awesome to my feet and now are the most comfy and stylish running shoes I own. Buy a size smaller for sure!

    Size: 6 B(M) USColor: Light Onix/Black/Anemone Purple Verified Purchase
    I have had issues in finding sneakers in the past. I am not a pro runner or even a hobbyist. I walk/jog for exercise. As such, I never really considering searching for a shoe that's recommended by Runner's World or using a proper fit guide. My experience has been walking into Foot Locker and walking out with a pair of shoes. I've always had sore, achey, throbbing feet from shoes that make walking/jogging very uncomfortable and a lot of the time the discomfort would deter me from even going out for a jog.

    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.

    I don't usually write reviews,, but I feel this one is necessary. I've had these shoes for about 4 months now, and feel I can be honest. I've had time to break them in as opposed to people who just purchase and fall in love with the look and immediate feel. I've worn them about 20 - 25 times to walk/run on road and cross country.
    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.
