Mud and snow are no match for the Salmon XT S-Lab 5 Softground, a fast and supportive trail shoe that will take you just about anywhere. A light, streamlined upper hugs your foot securely without added weight. Underneath is a stable chassis and cushioned midsole to keep feet steady and absorb impact on the trail. The outsole uses aggressive lugs to dig in on softer ground like snow, mud and loose rock, so you can charge on ahead.

CUSHIONING

  • Welded Sensifit is located on the medial and lateral sides and is designed to wrap the foot with a secure fit.
  • Lace Pocket tucks laces out of the way while running.
