A lot of good, high durability in this Salomon X Alpine/Pro.
One of the best trail shoe upper I've ever experienced.
The X Alpine Pro was at the top of my most anticipated new shoe list for 2019 and it did not disappoint... [it] adds upper protection, a slightly wider toe box with no sacrifice in security/control an improved outsole for greater versatility in mountain terrain and increased forefoot flexibility while maintaining excellent protection under foot.
If your feet are well-conditioned, strong, and ideally accustomed to a little time actually barefoot, these are likely to be a pleasing trail running shoe for smoother trails.
Unique in the outsole is the single wide “climbing zone” lug across the toes. This approach shoe-like feature sticks well to clean rock, but compared to a more conventional pattern of smaller lugs I thought it’s performance was inferior on loose sand, mud, and wet grass.
The X Alpine Pro is a bit more secure and offers a wider toe box without jeopardizing other key attributes.
- Built for a precise foothold and ride, the Salomon X Alpine Pro promises to upgrade your mountain running experience with its reliable technical features.
- Situated on the forefoot, a climbing zone of the shoe offers superior grip and added durability when climbing or scrambling.
- The Contragrip® TA of the shoe helps deliver added durability and traction regardless of surface and condition. It also features aggressive lugs that enable the sticky grip of the shoe.
- For maximized motion control and energy management, Advanced Chassis™ is equipped in between the X Alpine/Pro’s midsole and outsole.
SensiFit™ technology hugs the foot from the midsole to the lacing system to provide a customized and snug fit. EndoFit™, on the other hand, improves foot wrapping to further security. The Quicklace™ lacing system of the shoe offers minimalistic and strong lace for convenient shoe entry and exit while delivering an adjustable fit.
The outsole of the Salomon X Alpine Pro is composed of Contragrip® TA rubber outsole, supplying exceptional traction and protects the shoe from abrasive elements when running. It features aggressive multi-directional lugs that increase its traction on varied surfaces and conditions.
This trail running shoe features a climbing zone, a part of the forefoot that delivers the shoe’s sticky grip and transmission for smearing and edging. It is modeled after climbing/approach shoes.
The EnergyCell midsole of the Salomon X Alpine Pro is composed of injected EVA that attenuates shock and helps pronounce the comfort the shoe delivers.
A lightweight Advanced Chassis™ system is placed in between the shoe’s midsole and outsole. This delivers a stable, efficient, and responsive ride by maximizing the motion control, propulsion and energy management of the shoe.
A molded OrthoLite® insole mimics the natural shape of the foot for long-lasting underfoot support and comfort. This is also found in the Brooks Transcend 6.
The X Alpine Pro’s anti-debris mesh upper is a tightly knitted mesh that prevents the entry of abrasive elements and dirt into the shoe while providing flexibility and breathability.
Quicklace™ system allows the adjustable and secure fit of the shoe. For the lacing system’s storage, lace pockets are furnished to the upper of the shoe.
EndoFit™ inner sleeve construction is designed to improve the fit of the shoe and feedback.
SensiFit™ cradles the foot from the midsole to the lacing system, providing an accurate and secure fit around the foot.
A protective rubber toe cap is employed to add to the protection of the shoe. For lateral and medial protection, a protective mudguard is furnished to the upper.
