Who should buy the XA Collider from Salomon

The XA Collider from Salomon is an affordable trail shoe that's perfect for runners who want: 

  • to run in light to moderate terrain 
  • a trail shoe that can double as a light hiking and walking shoe

XA Collider: Limitless adventures 

From light trail runs, hikes to walking on city pavements, the Salomon XA Collider fits the bill as a versatile trail shoe.

For the great outdoors, the rugged outsole, impact-absorbing midsole, and reinforced upper work together to keep protection at a maximum.

And when it's time to lace it up for some walk around town, its soft cushion will keep the feet strain-free and cozy. 

Notable features

Shock absorption: Thanks to the shoe's EnergyCell foam, the XA Collider dampens impact, keeping the legs and feet fresh. 

Grippy traction: The Contragrip outsole is not only solid and tough, its lug pattern also bites into both hard and soft surfaces. 

Extra protection:  To shield the toes when bumping against stones and roots, the toe cap is reinforced with rubber.
