Salomon Alphacross Blast: an entry-level trail shoe
Nearly identical to the original Alphacross, the Blast iteration carries over all the essential components of this beginner-friendly shoe.
Salomon Alphacross Blast is meant for moderate, softer terrain and occasional use (around once a week). It is also stated to benefit heel strikers the most.
You can get this model in a waterproof GTX version too.
Where is Alphacross Blast in the Salomon Cross collection
Alphacross is the cheapest and least rugged shoe in the brand’s Cross series. It also features the more minimal upper and traditional lacing system.
Highlights of the Alphacross Blast
- Aggressive 5-mm Chevron lugs for grip on loose ground
- EnergyCell EVA absorbs shock from each step
- Ortholite sockliner adds underfoot padding
- Ripstop upper doesn’t tear easily
“Generous fit" means a bit more space in the forefoot compared to the more narrow fit of most Salomon trail shoes
