Salomon Men's Alphacross Trail Running Shoe

Another quality offering that we have come to expect from Salomon. The first thing that struck us was the comfort the Salomon Alphacross offered straight out of the box, we are rarely disappointed with Salomon but these were particularly impressive from the moment we put them on as the lightweight mesh ripstop upper nicely contoured to give a great fit. These shoes give the appearance that they may be waterproof but don't be fooled, they aren't, but nor do they claim to be, so just a disclaimer there in case you were judging this book by it's cover!


Salomon have once again excelled in the traction department with another typically meaty tread pattern that didn't let us down over various terrains and surfaces as we put them to the test. Positive footing never felt like letting us down and the 10mm drop provided a nice balanced shoe on both uphill and downhill trails, of course drop is entirely a preference thing, but for us these felt great.


At 300gm these are a pretty lightweight package and carry all the usual standout features from Salomon, with this shoe we did like the comfort and durability of the ripstop upper which seemed to take a hammering without giving in to any signs of wear and tear. Unlike some other Salomon styles that come with their "Quicklace" system, the Alphacross comes with the more conventional laces, and as much as we do like the Quicklace, we didn't find reverting back to the "old fashioned" way a let down whatsoever.


A great lightweight trail running shoe that's a comfort standout and tough as nails, probably best suited to drier trails but up to the task however adventurous you're feeling!
