Salomon Alphacross 3 Women's Trail Running Shoes
The perfect partner for both trails and laps around the park, the Alphacross 3 gives you all the grip you need. This season, Salomon have updated the fit to hold your foot in place as you push off – so you can channel all that energy and power.
Constructed using a welded upper, the Alphacross 3 Trail Running Shoes have a stitch-free construction that provides a smooth, glove-like fit and feel. This updated upper ensures that your foot stays in place with every stride for added comfort and support throughout your runs. Connected to the upper on both sides is the tongue to prevent debris from entering the shoe and keep the tongue centred and comfortable against the foot. The upper uses a super durable ripstop fabrication which resists the risk of wear and tears to bring you a shoe perfect for any trail. Not only will the ripstop fabric reduce abrasion it will also allow the shoe to look newer for longer. Completing the upper is a lacing system that locks down the midfoot to reduce in-shoe slippage so you can enjoy distraction-free strides.
Energy Cell Midsole
Within the midsole, the shoe has injected and compressed EVA which forms the EnergyCell Midsole. This multi-functional midsole will provide both comfort and protection, as it has dual-density EVA. Towards the bottom, the EVA is extremely firm, which will absorb shocks instantly and effectively, preventing them from causing any damage to the sole of the foot. The energy produced from this will also be returned as rebound, which will give you an added spring in your step. The higher you get in the midsole, the EVA becomes less densely packed, which will make every step feel comfortable. An OrthoLite sockliner also exists underfoot to provide the foot with a cushioned and cooler environment, whilst also reducing the risk of irritation caused by rubbing and chafing.
Contagrip TD Outsole
Tackle any trails in supreme confidence that you won't be let down by your shoe's grip. Using Contagrip, the outsole is able to form a solid grip between shoe and terrain. Contagrip TD is built for maximum traction on varied terrain and is durable enough to withstand the toughest trails. Built with large lugs, the Alphacross delivers optimum grip to keep you grounded on tough terrain. When you are running on the wet and muddy ground, the shoe's deep chevron lugs dig into the ground, anchoring you in place. This will also benefit you by acting as a solid base for you to push off from when taking a stride, as well as digging into the ground when braking and changing direction.
