Crafted for hard-surface running - unleash the Greyhound in you!
Salming latest addition to the road segment is a road warrior - a shoe tailored for hard-surface running and the impact forces that comes with it.
The Greyhound outsole is developed together with Vibram and features the XS Trek compound which is 25% more durable compared to our regular lightweight outsole compound. This is Salmings most durable performance outsole material to date. it has a racing slick design with minimized outsole pattern for excellent traction on dry and wet hard surfaces such as as tarmac, asphalt and concrete.
Recoil PLUS - provides an incredible 20% higher energy return, making it Salmings most reactive compound to date! (Compared to Salming standard material)
Less is more - the Greyhound upper has an advanced simplicity to it, both visually and performance wise. The main body upper contains a lightweight one piece 3 layer construction that holds the foot in place, provides great breathability and a snug fit. The tongue construction features a gusset construction to add to the comfortable wrap-around feel and the laces are racing thin.
Covering mile after mile calls for a combination of comfort and durability. Accordingly, our shoes designed to function in more rugged environments utilize a 3 layer upper construction. A first layer of mesh material adds comfort, while the middle stabilizes lateral movements and reduces pressure on the foot. The exterior thin net mesh encapsulates and wraps up the front in a neat fashion, adding durability to the shoe.
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 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.
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.
The XS Trek outsole compound, developed by Vibram, is 25% more durable compared to our regular lightweight outsole compounds and provides extreme durability and traction combined.
Our heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
