As you bolt out the door for your favorite terra trail run, you'll be flying effortlessly with unparalleled speed and agility in your new men's Salomon XT Wings WP Running Shoes. Flowing across the wet then dry terrain, a waterproof bootie with membrane construction maintains your foot comfort equilibrium. The gusseted tongue with asymmetrical Quicklace System and all around Sensifit hugs the foot precisely as you come down off the mountain. A responsive triple-density EVA cushioned midsole is wrapped in a rubber belt and mud guard for dry protection, while the Agile Chassis Skeleton ensures smooth heel-to-toe transitions and side-to-side stability. Bounding downhill as you skip over the occasional log or boulder, the Contagrip outsole maximizes speed by collecting your heel strike energy and transferring it back during push-off. A breathable Ortholite insole with an anti-bacterial treatment keeps your foot cool and comfortable during the long haul.
