The arrival of Salming Quest marks the beginning of the brand entering the performance sneaker segment, offering you a fully equipped Salming Running performance shoe with a somewhat more casual silhouette. Make no mistake about it - the acclaimed Salming DNA technology is present as always - the TGS62/75, a RunLite cushioning midsole with deep grooves for greater flexibility, an offset heel area for added cushioning and a durable lightweight outsole – this shoe will make your morning run or dusk stroll effortless.
The Quest comes in two designs and color combos - one knitted grey melange upper with micro fiber reinforcements, creating a snug and super soft comfortable fit. The all black colour combo has more of a performance touch and look to it with a comfortable lightweight mesh, seamless heat seal areas combined with micro fiber reinforcements. Salming Quest - urban running with a sneaker silhouette.
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.
The material in the midsole is Salming RunLite™ which absorbs negative impact forces and releases energy in the toe off phase. The low profile of the midsole enhances the proprioception properties when running off trail. Way from the very first step.
Heel drop is essentially a measurement for how fat a running shoe’s heel feels. It’s short for “heel to toe drop,” shortened to “drop.” It tells you how much taller the heel is than the forefoot. Example: A shoe with a 22-mm thick heel and a 16-mm thick forefoot will have a 6-mm heel-toe drop. Salming Running shoes never has higher drop than 6mm as we believe a higher drop negatively interferes with your natural running stride and makes it hard to find a perfect running form.
