Salomon X Alp Leather Shoe - Men's

Makes the steep and spooky manageable.

Designed for third-class scrambles, exposed traverses, and sketchy approaches, the Salomon Men's X Alp Leather Shoe will make the most of what little footing you can find when you're exploring the almost-vertical world. Its 3D Edging Chassis offers stiff and reliable lateral support whether you're finding purchase on steep granite slabs or kicking foot holds into snow during a spring summit bid, and the split suede upper offers superior protection from the rock and snow you'll find above treeline. Salomon also reinforced the front of the X Alp with a protective toe cap for good measure.

Nearly every feature on the X Alp is burly, but it's sill a lightweight (under a pound) shoe, ideal for fast summit bids and long ridge linkups. The sole is composed of Salomon's proprietary Contragrip rubber for exceptional durability and is aggressively lugged to put the handle on those slick approaches below treeline and gravely sections of trail that stretch between solid rock in the alpine. A gusseted tongue keeps debris out of your shoes, the EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning, and the Ortholite sockliner holds your foot snugly whether you're covering vertical or horiztonal ground.
