These shoes compare to Salomon XA Pro 3D Ultra GTX trail running shoes. I have wore both and the these Adidas Terrex Fast X shoes are much more durable than the Salomons. This review is based on my use of these shoes that are approaching end of life. These Adidas are a tough shoe that will hold up well. Failure begins on top of the shoe at the edges where your toes/shoe flex. This is happening much less severe than the Salomons and much later in life. The fabric across the top of the toes on the Adidas is more durable and is showing no signs of wear. The Salomons fabric has failed all the way across the top of the shoe. There is no sole shoe separation with the Adidas unlike the Salomon which are starting to separate at the sides of the toe. Sole wear is slightly better with the Adidas. When new, the Salomon are probably a little better of a running shoe because of easier flex. This makes the Adidas much better as a light hiker or rough terrain trail runner. Both quick lacing systems are similar, but again the Adidas shows no signs of wear. I like these shoes and will buy them again.
