If you want to get to the top of the mountain and back down again, you'll need a pair of boots that is ready for the challenge. The X Alp GTX Forces is developed to handle such a task with ease. Utilizing Salomon's 3D Edging Chassis to give it twice the flexibility with the same level of lateral edging. Made with a high-cut profile to provide increased ankle support. A gusseted tongue connects to the upper part of the shoe to elimate debris from entering. An abrasion-resistant textile lining makes for excellent breathability and quick drying properties. High Traction Contagrip outsole makes for firm traction on city streets.
When traveling in wet conditions, a GORE-TEX membrane keeps your feet dry from the outside as well as from the inside. The upper matieral is made of 1.5mm waterproof Nubuck leather. Featuring a 2.5mm protective rubber toe cap and a 1.5mm protective rubber heel cap. The outside is equipped with a 1.8mm protective rubber mud guard all around the base of the shoe. The molded EVA shaped footbed provides excellent cushioning and anatomically designed support. An OrthoLite foam sockliner creates a cooler, drier, and better cushioned enviroment inside the boot.
