Salomon XR Mission $110

Light, grippy and with an effective fast-closure system that snugged the shoe against the foot perfectly, the XR Crossmax is an ideal off-road triathlon shoe capable of doubling as a sturdy pavement trainer as well. The mid-foot is very narrow, which firmly secures a narrow foot but can be too tight for some runners. The heel and forefoot both lock the foot in place without creating hot spots.
