Salmings first off-trail shoe has been nothing short of a success story, receiving great reviews and selling out during its debut season. When adding the Elements model to our range we aimed at creating a performance off-trail shoe which incorporates Salming's running concept and principles, which enables you to run anywhere or swim for that matter. If you are looking for an intimate trail experience where your whole body is in tune with the ground and its surroundings - Elements is your top pick! The responsive and flexible midsole with a bomber traction outsole combined with excellent water drainage allowing the ultimate off-trail and swimrun experience. Elements - run anywhere!
Exo Skeleton The ExoSkeleton design keeps the foot in place and stabilizes the foot in lateral movements relieveing pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). When we refer to the Fully Integrated ExoSkeleton it is part of the lacing construction - a solid fully integrated construction that is part of a Wrap Around Design concept created to provide that snug comfortable first feel with a great fit and breathability.
RunLite Midsole The RunLite midsole features a special High Abrasion Injection EVA, designed to create a nice feel for the ground. The midsole is light and responds to the surface in a flexible way from the very first step.
TOC66 A light weight outsole made in TOC66 (Traction Outsole Control 66) compound featuring 8mm high lugs - has been developed to provide the best possible grip on both dry and wet surfaces, as well as on gravel, rocks and roots.
RocShield 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.
TGS 62/75° 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.
Heelcup 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.
Height: 18 mm heel center, 14 mm ball of foot
Straight cut for normal freedom of movement
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
