Ever balk at the phrase “Women's specific,” knowing that what it usually means is that a product designed for men has just gotten a “makeover,” and comes with the same features, but smaller, but a little more, uh, feminine (pink)? Yeah. Well, Salomon's XR Mission W might have a men's counterpart, but this trail runner is most definitely designed for women. The colors are pretty rad, too.
Lightweight, responsive, and designed specifically for women, Salomon's XR Mission W is an exceptional all-terrain middle-distance trainer for road runners who want to transition to trail running. Salomon's XR Mission is formed on a women's-specific last for a perfect fit and great support. Asymmetrical Sensifit wraps a woman's foot to provide arch support and increased foothold while cradling the midsole so the fit is stable and snug. Meanwhile, the Sensiflex stretch panel overlay allows the foot to expand while running, without chafing. The Flex Groove tendon, with more flex grooves than the men's shoe, is specifically designed for the women's XR mission to allow easier flexing. To eliminate untied laces, the XR Mission incorporates the Quicklace system — this one-pull lace can be adjusted on the fly and tucked neatly out of the way. And it's all in one lightweight, trail-friendly package, so you can hit those dirt paths with plenty of traction and no grit in your socks.
