When the trails require you to be light and fast on your feet, lace up the La Sportiva X Country. This low-profile, lightweight trail shoe keeps neutral runners close to the ground for a stable, responsive ride. The X Country provides plenty of protection to the runner’s feet by offering a scree guard and water resistant upper, along with aggressive lugs that provide excellent traction. Mud, grass or rocks are no match for this daily trail trainer or racer.
