Every now and then, the countless scree fields, muddy ravines, and rooty high knees try their darndest to get the best of you--so fight back with the Salomon Women's X-Mission 3 Trail Running Shoe. Built to crush the inclines and ensure steady footing on the descent, this reimagined trail runner features a newly renovated high abrasion and wet traction Contagrip sole which utilizes strategically placed lugs and high density tread, which ultimately encourages paramount stability and grip when you need it the most.

Not to mention, the X-Mission 3 is equipped with neutral support, SensiFlex, asymmetrical heel counter, and EVA injected midsole which cater to a smooth and comfortable ride.
