The toe box is more roomy in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.
The distance from heel to the ball of foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, we have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. The TGS 62/75° feature assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
Salmings heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
2 Layer Construction
Salmings lightest shoes feature a 2 layer upper construction which adds durable abilities while keeping the weight at a minimum. This results in extremely breathable characteristics and a quick, responsive feel to running experience.
The material in the midsole is a newly developed compound named RECOIL which absorbs negative impact forces and releases a higher rebound energy effect in the toe off phase.
An area covering the lower part of the shoe upper protecting it from sharp rocks and branches thus both increasing the durability of the shoe and adds confidence to the runner.
