The Salomon XR Mission: Well, well, well...you decided to take the plunge and do some trail running. Maybe you even found a couple of local spots and gave it a shot: wind in your hair, birds chirping overhead, leaves crunching under your feet - the whole fantasy. So be honest now: how long did it take to realize your road shoes weren't quite what you needed to stay upright on the trail? Loose dirt, wet leaves, sticks, snags and hidden roots have a way of making themselves known very quickly!
Salomon running suggests the XR Mission is exactly what you need to make the transition to a dedicated trail shoe, and we think they've got a point. The XR Mission is a Trail Running shoe with More Drop and Comfort Cushioning, and all this adds up to a solid shoe ready to take you off the beaten path with the protection you deserve.
As always, Salomon provides a lot of marketing terms to describe the shoe, and they all sound pretty awesome. You can check it out by clicking on the image above. We'll sum it up here: great traction, toe protection, a rugged outsole and comfort features to ensure you are happy from the moment you put it on to the moment you take it off. We're not going o claim we're the only place in town you can buy these shoes - they're one of the most popular trail running shoes in the country - but we can promise our knowledge, time on the trail and commitment to you as a customer is unmatched in the market. We can't wait to get a pair on your feet and get you out on the trails!
