Anyone who has wandered off the beaten path will tell you that it is imperative to keep your feet dry while training. Wetness causes the skin to soften and crack leaving you susceptible to painful and sidelining blisters.
Salomon comes through huge with its Ortholite sock liner that creates a cool, dry and cushioned environment for your foot. This type of rubber is excellent for added heel support and helps disperse foot strike impact in an even and safe manner. No more shin splints or runner’s knee for anyone wise enough to purchase a pair of XT Wings 2.
Take one look at the outer on these Salomons and you will notice the unique lacing system. This intertwined prelaced system allows a quick and easy on and off experience.
The main concern for trail runners is safety. Salomon XT Wings are armed with Contagrip rubber outsoles. Contagrip is a non-marking combination of different compounds used to create maximum grip and traction on a variety of on and off road surfaces.
A protective rubber toe cap and special mud guard take foot safety to another level. Special highly reflective materials have been added to the outsole. That reminds me, wear a reflective vest and carry some sort of light if you dare enter the woods at dusk.
Is Salomon XT Wings 2 The Best Running Shoe For Me?
