Climbing or descending, your cruise across the trail should be smooth and comfortable. Wear the Salomon Men's XA Elevate Trail Running Shoe for a secure ride over stumps, rocks, and through varied trail conditions. The Contagrip outsole is specifically designed to provide traction over trail conditions ranging from dusty to swampy, and the Elevate has 5mm lugs for improved grip in mud. As your foot contacts the ground, the dual-density EVA midsole absorbs the shock and helps it dissipate through the shoe instead of through your joints. The 8mm drop encourages a smooth transition from a midfoot strike to the toe-off for the next stride, while a rock plate underfoot provides protection from obstacles without weighing you down.
