Salomon Women’s XA GORE-TEX LITE Trail Running Shoes
Get out onto any terrain with a light foot and a clear head. No need for compromises. The XA LITE GTX shoe is your ideal game partner, swift, steady and long-lasting.
A huge part of the uppers construction is the Gore-Tex membrane. Gore-Tex is well known for its reliable waterproof properties as well as its superb breathability. This means that all water is blocked from entering through the material but cool air is allowed to flow through at the same time as warm air is being released, creating a cool environment inside of the shoe – ensuring a dry wear. Quicklace technology allows the wearer to tighten and loosen their laces with ease (and no tying!) plus they can then be stowed safely away in the shoe’s lace pocket; integrated to prevent any snagging/tripping situations. A mudguard skirts the base of the shoe to repel debris as you splash through dirt and sloppy ground. Sensifit technology employs synthetic overlays to cradle the foot in snug, customised comfort; helping to anchor you to the midsole and reduce in-shoe slippage so that you can enjoy smooth, distraction-free strides. Made from a moulded EVA, the footbed offers a plush cushioned feel under the foot and allows the foot to sink into the foam, providing a snug and comfortable fit. Placed on the tongue is a pull tab. This allows the wearer to firmly grip the shoe for an easy on-and-off motion of the shoe.
Injected EVA Midsole
Supporting mile after mile of trekking, an injected EVA lines the midsole – an industry leader on good merit, EVA is both light and flexible, with a great disposition as a cushioning material. It actively reduces forces pressed upon the underfoot for a smooth stride through the transition with ample of shock dispersion. The format assists with keeping weight down and maximising responsive cushioning whatever the terrain ahead. Energy Cell foam is also used to construct the midsole which is a shock attenuating foam which offers high-quality shock absorbing properties. This covers the heel area which shock absorption is often needed the most. This helps to reduce aches and pains occurring as the foot lands on unforgiving surfaces which could potentially take the users focus off giving their very best performance.
High Traction Contagrip Outsole
The Salomon XA Lite features a Contagrip outsole, providing unique traction technology. With a mix of compound, lob geometry and density, it gives the shoes brilliant grip and durability, regardless of the terrain underneath. Utilising different combinations of harder, softer and grippier Contagrip compounds, Salomon’s adventure running outsole provides the perfect blend of grip and durability to cover a multitude of terrains. Designed with specifically positions forefoot flex grooves and self-cleaning multi-directional lugs, these outsoles are field tested and proven to dynamically tackle rugged terrains.
