"A great product for winter runners that can also be used without ice. Minimalist design, very clever build with toe protection, breathability etc., and very comfortable.“ (Chloe Lanthier | x-training school)
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 Exo Skeleton design stabilizes the foot in lateral movements and relieves pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). This part of the design construction eliminates friction and reduces the impact of the side forces in the soft parts of the foot, especially underneath the forefoot.
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 17-mm thick forefoot will have a 5-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.
LiteBASE Tech by Vibram™
A new high performance rubber technology. LiteBase Tech drastically reduces the thickness and the weight of the rubber sole while maintaining all performance attributes. The technology consists of a unique vulcanization process that incorporates a tin layer of rubber-coated fabric into the rubber tread pattern.
Placed at the shoe upper front tip there is a reinforced area - The IceShield™ - made in durable PU with a microfiber backing.
Our heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
