Ridge runs are no walk on the treadmill. Not only are the trails sometimes non-existent, but you're bound to run through mud, rocky debris, and a mixture of the two. Salomon's S-Lab XA Alpine 2 Trail Running Shoe is essentially a lightweight, speed-oriented runner with a highly protective gaiter to block out all the nonsense getting in the way between you and a hearty workout.
The shoe's upper features the same Sensifit and Endofit technologies that give Salomon's footwear such a slim, streamlined, speedy, and absolutely secure fit that feels custom to your foot. Salomon also added a Carbon Chassis at the heel to solidify the fit and ensure the stability required for alpine terrain. Underfoot, three layers of EVA foam cradle your foot in soft cushioning, and they rebound any shocks from protruding pebbles for a comfier run. Contagrip's rubber sole comes in a Premium Wet Traction compound for better traction over slipperier surfaces.
