I love these shoes. I do everything in them. They are so comfortable, I never leave home without them (seriously, when I go to church I leave them in my jeep for after church wear). I love the Gore-tex part of them. I can do anything in these and not worry about wet feet or stuff like that. Overall these are the best all around shoe made.

- US Outdoor Store refers to the men's version

Although you will certainly notice it when a cold shower hits, your foot is bound to not miss a beat with the Gore-Tex XCR lined Salomon Men's XA Comp 2 XCR Trail Running Shoe. Although the name is mouthful, roughly translated it describes a shoe that's loaded with features for the serious trail runner. In addition to the waterproof and breathable Gore-Tex lining, a gusseted tongue helps block debris and mud puddle spray from working its way into the shoe. And for sections of rough trail, the 2D Advanced Chassis acts like a plate of armor, protecting the bottom of the foot from sharp rocks while reducing twisting on rough paths.

- Altrec Outdoors refers to the men's version

Advanced Chassis Technology offers excellent push-through protection, torsional rigidity and forefoot flexion and reduces overall weight. Dual-density EVA midsoles absorb shock; thermoplastic plates provide the right amount of flex, support and responsiveness underfoot. Protective toe caps resist abrasion to uppers and keep toes safe from bumps; lace pocket on tongue stores laces neatly out of the way. Running Contagrip rubber outsoles deliver optimal performance on mixed terrain even at high speeds. Sensifit synthetic overlays deliver a secure fit across instep; asymmetrical Quickfit lacing system takes just one pull for a precise fit. Synthetic leather/mesh uppers are highly breathable, durable and lightweight. These low-profile trail-runners are well suited to rough terrain and wet conditions--ideal for adventure racing and training when comfort is crucial. Waterproof, seam-sealed Gore-Tex XCR inserts keep wet weather at bay--and they're extra breathable to ensure comfort.
