Nearly breaking a sweat during your dawn to dusk running affair, the Salomon Women's XA Comp 5 GTX Trail Running Shoe gives you enduring comfort and waterproof /breathable tenacity that compels you to just let them go. Amazingly, at a mere 10 ounces there is still plenty of performance beefiness, so you won't spin out. An anti-debris durable mesh upper is Sensifit wrapped in synthetic overlays to give a precise and secure fit. A Quicklace(TM) one pull lace system quickly customizes the closure, as the quick cinch tab tucks out of the way in its garage pocket. The dual density EVA midsole targets stabilization of the foot against stone or root roll over. The aggressive multi-density winter Contragrip outsole remains pliable and gripping even in cold conditions, to give you optimum traction as you blast over Tioga Pass. With a mudguard and protective toe bumper your feet are covered in the event they ever come back to earth.
