  • the Agile Chassis System for stability
  • the EndoFit upper construction to deliver a precise fit
  • the updated 3D Mesh for maximum breathability

What to expect from the shoe

The Salomon XT-Wings 2 is a unisex shoe. Thus, it can be worn by men and women. It is a neutral running shoe that is ideal for athletes with normal gaits or those who supinate (when the bodyweight rolls onto the outer edge of the foot). Here are some of the benefits that this Salomon trail shoe provides:

  • Superior traction. Proven on the most challenging trails, the XT-Wings 2 utilizes a sticky outsole that gives you a firm grip on various terrain. 
  • Reliable protection. Featuring a durable outsole, a protective toecap, and the Profeel Film material, the shoe ensures a smooth and secure ride.
  • Balanced comfort. Made to deliver a blend of cushioning and agility, this running companion will give you lasting comfort and support.
