The Salomon XA FORCES MID GTX EN is an extremely light shoe that is suitable for extreme and critical conditions. The shoe is equipped with the Salomon XA Pro 3D technology and is extremely durable due to the materials used.

The upper shoe of this 2020 model is made of the same material (mesh) as the Salomon Forces Quest 4D. This is a more robust and ballistic nylon which is now used double or triple stitched. Material overlap has been reduced in most places, which will certainly improve the life of the shoe.

The sole has also improved. Salomon has added a few cm of rubber protection to increase grip and stability. This has also been extended to the nose of the shoe. In addition, the nose of the shoe has also been slightly wider so that people with a wider foot have optimal comfort. (this was something that was sometimes the case with the previous model)

This model is EN certified and has a Puncture-Proof sole for optimal protection without sacrificing comfort.

The inside of the shoe and sole have been completely adapted at the request of many users. Here the shoe is now equipped with full protection for rope climbing and rappelling, among other things.
