When you take your high speed adventure above tree line, you encounter every kind of surface and obstacle. The S/LAB XA ALPINE 2 is ready for everything the mountain throws at it. For maximum confidence in this unpredictable environment, this athlete driven shoe opens up a whole new world.
CENTURION REVIEW: The XA Alpine 2 blurs the line between mountain shoe and mountain boot. It offers everything you need for any mountain environment whilst remaining incredibly lightweight at just 360g. The grip is substantial without being over-studded so it still holds on rock and the rigidity of the sole is just the right blend to allow scrambling and climbing with ease without remaining too hard for running elements of a mountain day out. The gaiter is waterproof and bomb proof in terms of keeping debris out so if the ground is wet, boggy or particularly covered with snow this shoe truly comes into its own. Just a phenomenal shoe and a go to for any mountain day.
