Salomon X-Alp shoes

Salomon on mountaineering?

As you remember, some years ago salomon was doing some ice-climbing shoes, some hight mountaineering boots…until they start focused on trail running. This year they launched the X-Alp products, as an first approach to mountaineering on light products.

X-alp shoes:

– Running: Is not a good running shoe but you can really run approaches and fast downhills with good confort.

– Climbing: Is not a pure climbing shoe, but has a climbing part, grip on rocks is well.

– Protection / cold: is a completely waterproof shoe, it keeps warm on south faces and up to 4000m on the alps on some faces, but a bit colder in north faces on autumn or winter.

– Crampons: Is not a automatic crampons shoe but is possible to fix with automatic crampons and sure great with manual crampons.

A good compromise to do fast mountaineering.

  1. Hello,
    I would like to use just this shoe for a quick summit of Citlaltepec inMexico(5700 meters). Not really too technical. This shoe is good for the whole climb yes?
    Thanks,
    Marc
