Salomon Footwear Fall/Winter 2013/2014-Hiking/Trail Running/Recovery/Shoes/Boots

Outdoor Retailer/SLC

Salomon performance footwear gets a lot of reader interest---AND as for very decent in-line prices-there's a whole lot of proprietary know-how that goes into each style of this French brand's offerings.

I.E.- in different models-some of what's on board---including Endofit™-Salomon's exclusive tech-assures a glove like, internal fit sleeve, designed to hug forefoot and improve ground feedback, lower heel drops for midfoot strikers, outsoles with Contragrip®--LT (lightweight) and HA high abrasion-for lightweight, durable traction,  patented traction system via alternating lugs for different grips- on mud via alternating lugs larger lugs---and dry surfaces with smaller ones-and not weigh a ton and not freeze up in icy cold-and not frazzle-out in heat either, strategically placed Profeel Film in forefoot part for flex/efficiency, Climashield™-waterproof without the clammy feel, 2 layer midsoles for balance between cushioning and stability---combined with OS Tendon-that adapts to terrain and provides energy return for forward moving lift off, and Ortholite® footbeds for odor control.

From a natural feel to more protection-lightweight stability---and multi-function, these looks are for trail runners but also work off the mountain too.
