Salomon X-Scream 3D Launch in Malaysia & My First Impressions of X-Scream 3D

Last Saturday, I was invited to attend the Salomon X-Scream 3D Launch in the Apartment, KLCC. I was pretty excited to find out more about the Salomon's new city trail shoes. The Salomon X-Scream 3D is the latest shoe from Salomon's City Trail range.
The new Salomon X-Scream 3D for men (Gecko green/bright red/black) and women (Hot pink/mystic purple/white). 

Salomon introduces the evolution of everyday training with X-Scream 3D. As the embodiment of Salomon's City Running Concept, X-Scream 3D provides ample ride and cushioning for everyday running on hard paths and roads, but with superior foothold and grip to ensure agility for diverse movements on multiple surfaces. For runners who want to break away from the same routine, X-Scream 3D delivers the foothold, grip and ride to let you make every run an adventure.
During the launch event, I was given a pair of Salomon X-Scream 3D in Hot pink/mystic purple/white to test run with invited media members and bloggers. My first impressions of  Salomon X-Scream 3D are light, quite cushioning and comfortable. It is easy to wear with just one-pull tightening the shoe lace and store the shoe lace in lace pocket. I was wearing size 7 Salomon X-Scream 3D and this pair of city trail shoe is comfortably roomy. I like lightweight running shoes and I always run in lightweight or minimalist shoes.
Now, I'm ready to join the test run session lead by Mr. Raymond, Salomon Brand Ambassadors of Malaysia.

After the briefing and warm-up sessions, we started to run around KLCC Park. 
We started off  with a slow jog in the park. This was my first time running in KLCC park. A complete loop of this park is about 1.30 km.
We ran on grassy surface and  slopes in the park. 

The Salomon X-Scream 3D are supportive and stable when I run on different terrain and surfaces such as rubberized track, grass, sand, concrete pavement, slopes and staircase. The 3D grip or better known as  multi-terrain grip works well when I run up & down the slopes and staircases in the KLCC park. At one point, I was actually running  below 5 minutes pace. (Thanks Marlina for this nice photo).

After the test run session, we were invited for breakfast and the product sharing session by Mr. Samuel Soong, Product Manager of Salomon.
Mr. Samuel shared with us the features and technologies used in Salomon X-Scream 3D. 
Foothold in every direction
3D Fit comfortably holds your foot in place, even during dynamic directional changes. X-Scream 3D shoes begin with Salomon's well known Sensifit and Quicklace system for outstanding foothold and comfort. With the Endofit and seamless upper, this shoe feel great even without socks.

Multi-surface Grip
3D Grip ensures confidence on wet or dry, soft or hard surfaces.

Responsive ride for a dynamic run 
3D Ride feels smooth and cushioned on consistent and uneven surfaces.

The test run will continue with mid-long run and lsd for my marathon training in the coming weeks.
