Salomon X-Scream Trail-Running Shoe Review

Posted on July 18, 2014 at 10:25 AM Comments comments (0)

Living outside the city in the suburbs my biggest challenge with running shoes is finding one that is rugged for the trails but light and smooth for the roads, so as soon as my Salomon X-Scream trail-running shoes came in the mail I was excited to lace them up and test them out on the roads / trails.


The first thing I noticed (besides the vivid bright colors) are the laces. They are a single lace adjustment similar to a snowboarding boat that tucks away the extra cord int...

The Pro and Cons of Intentional or Strategic Fouling in Collegiate or Professional Sports
