Who should buy the Salomon Alphacross Blast GTX

The Alphacross Blast GTX is perfect for trail runners looking for: 

  • an inexpensive waterproof running shoe
  • a trail shoe that can double as a light hiking shoe
  • a winter-appropriate trail running shoe

Alphacross Blast GTX: Ride comfortably

Apart from having a waterproof feature and a pocket-friendly price, Salomon has made it a point to make the Alphacross Blast GTX a feet-pampering trail shoe. As opposed to other trail running models, it doesn't punish the feet with its cushy yet supportive foam. Even more, it also has a soft lining that makes the feet feel at home.
