Mid height and, fully waterproof with a GORE-TEX® membrane, the Salomon XA PRO 3D Mid GTX Forces 2 Boot lets you focus on the mission, not your feet. This bad weather assault boot provides ankle protection, underfoot stiffness, and fast, comfortable lacing system for great fit. OrthoLite® sockliner combines a specific Ortholite® foam and an EVA heel cup. Ortholite® foam creates a cooler, drier, healthier, better cushioned environment under the foot. It will not break down or lose effectiveness over time. Recycled tire content to protect the environment. EVA heel cups allows for a better heel support and added cushioning. Salomon's low profile 3D advanced chassis, placed between the outsole and midsole, maximizes security, motion control, energy management and push through protection for a high performance, stable and responsive ride.
