Salomon has blended together the best of X-ALP and Trail Running technologies to create this high performance and lightweight approach shoe. The X-ALP SPRY is perfectly suited to the approach and more technical terrain where flexibility and responsiveness count.
The Sensifit system works to cradle the foot providing a precise and secure fit that stabilises the foot within its surroundings. A tongue cover provides protection against stones and debris from entering the shoe. There is also the added feature of a protective rubber toe cap to provide protection from knocks and abrasions on harder, aggressive terrain. A heel strap adds further stability to the shoe while a mud guard prevents the issue of mud affecting your performance or getting to places you don't want it to.
Supporting mile after mile of trekking, an injected EVA lines the midsole - an industry leader on good merit, EVA is both light and flexible, with a great disposition as a cushioning material. It actively reduces forces pressed upon the underfoot for a smooth stride through the transition with ample of shock dispersion. The format assists with keeping weight down and maximising responsive cushioning whatever the terrain ahead.
Ortholite foam creates a cooler, drier, healthier, better-cushioned environment under the foot. It will not break down or lose effectiveness over time. An EVA shaped footbed allows for a better heel support and added cushioning.
Utilising differing combinations of harder, softer and grippier Contagrip compounds, Salomon's adventure running outsoles provide the perfect blend of grip and durability to cover a multitude of terrains at high speeds. Designed with specifically positioned forefoot flex grooves and self-cleaning multi-directional lugs, these outsoles are field tested and race has proven to dynamically tackle rugged terrains.
