Based on Salomon’s XA PRO 3D boots, the XA FORCES 8” GTX EN brings all the greatness of the best selling footwear with added support and features. This new 8” model is an all-condition tactical boot, mixing the DNA of the classic platform with some of what makes the latest XA FORCES great; things like the stitching or the improved outsole.

The added support and stability will be there day after day no matter what conditions you’re putting your feet through. The same Gore-Tex waterproof membrane used in all the other Salomon FORCES footwear will keep your feet dry in nearly all conditions. The EN certified sole will prevent slipping, punctures, and static buildup. The new 8” upper has 2.0 mm thick Nubuck leather with additional padding to protect and support your ankle and lower calf. With the same feel and comfort of its ancestors, the XA FORCES 8” GTX EN brings an 8” style to the popular line.
