Wild Women: How to Choose Trail Shoes

Trail running is much more fun when you have the right shoes. Features to keep in mind when shopping for women’s trail running shoes include:

  • Terrain: Some trails are rougher than others, and some trail races often include sections on the road. The more rugged your usual trail running, the more important it is to have women’s trail shoes with serious grip and support, as well as added toe protection.
  • Size: Some runners wear thicker socks for trail running. If you do, be sure to wear the socks you plan to run in when you try on women’s trail shoes. You might need to go a half-size larger.
  • Weatherproofing: Most women’s trail shoes have varying amounts of Gore-Tex or other water-resistant material. Look for water resistance if your trail running is likely to take you across streams or through muddy areas.

Features of the Salomon Women’s Xa Pro 3d Xcr Trail Running Shoes include a breathable mesh upper and a reinforced heel and toe. In addition, these women’s trail running shoes feature a trademark Contagrip outsole that provides top-notch stability on varied terrain without getting in the way of speed.
