"AT SALMING, WE DON´T JUST DESIGN RUNNING SHOES, WE DESIGN A RUNNING EXPERIENCE"
The Salming technologies are designed to work for every runner. We design new technologies so your body’s own natural cushioning anatomy can be utilised to a full extent. Minimal energy loss on foot-strike, as foot-strike occurs under the centre of mass. Use the “free” energy to your advantage. So you’ll want to go again—whether yesterday was the longest run of your life or your first run ever.
FROM SOFT LANDINGS TO EXPLOSIVE TAKEOFFS
RULE OF 5
WE ARE PASSIONATE ABOUT HELPING YOU FIND THE PERFECT RUNNING FEEL!
WE HAVE A HOLISTIC VIEW ON RUNNING. OUR PHILOSOPHY LAYS
THE FOUNDATION ON HOW WE BUILD AND ENGINEER RUNNING SHOES.
AT SALMING, WE APPLY WHAT WE CALL THE
RULE OF 5:
Don’t let anything hold you back from achieving your PB. Lightweight shoes improves running efficiency with a approximately 2-3% per 100 g reduction in shoe weight. Using the right materials in the midsole helps eliminate impact and gives back energy into every step.
 DEFYING GRAVITY
The shoe flexibility should imitate the foot flexibility in order to facilitate a natural running technique. Our shoes are built with a mid-foot landing sweet spot. When landing on the sweet spot transform your motion into forward momentum.
 FLEXIBLE SHOES
A relatively roomy toe box is preferable so the toes are not pinched together. We want the foot to be able to function exactly as nature intended it to. Gender specific fit has comfort right where women and men need it. Based on anatomical differences.
 FIT FOR YOU
Improves sensory feedback from feet to brain. The foot automatically senses information from the ground contact with each and every step. With this data, your brain responds accordingly. If the midsole is too thick the sensory feedback gets distorted – it would be equivalent to put ski gloves on your hands when typing on a keyboard. The level of thickness is variable to what surface one runs on.
 MAXIMAL FEEL
Low Heel to Toe Drop facilitates a correct foot landing at the ball of the foot (sweet spot). In addition you become more naturally balanced with gravity without adjusting the body position. Heel striking makes you up to 3 times your body weight, putting a lot of pressure on joints and ligaments. When heel striking you will loose all energy and force forward which slows you down and prevent you to crush your goals. The arch area of the shoe should not be pushed up too much as it prevents the arch’s natural cushioning and spring function.
 HEEL STRIKING - THE ENEMY OF GOOD RUNNING FORM

A new lightweight 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.
Get one of the best grips on the market. VIBRAM® Megagrip offers an incomparable combination of grip and durability which helps define VIBRAM® Megagrip as the ideal high performance rubber compound for extremely demanding activities.
The Vibram LiteBASE compound developed by Vibram, the world authority in performance rubber outsoles, with more than 75 years of experience. This sticky and very long lasting compound provides excellent grip in wet, muddy, slippery conditions, as well as on dry rocky ground.
A BIG STEP TOWARDS A LIGHT STEP
1/ Ready for Change - midsole is consistent in different temperatures
2/ Sustainable - Recoil+ has incredible durability, mile after mile
3/ Smoother and Better - 20% higher energy return
4/ More Protection - Recoil+ has better shock absorbing properties
5/ More Comfortable - The compound offers a lighter and softer feel
5 BOOSTING BENEFITS WITH RECOIL+
A cushioning compound featured in the heel impact zone designed to reduce impact forces. The SoftFOAM™ heel insert area has 70% better shock absorbing properties than standard EVA midsole. The RECOIL™ and SoftFOAM™ combined - creates a sandwich construction made to maximize your performance.
The ExoSkeleton™ design keeps the foot in place and stabilises the foot in lateral movements relieving pressure at the MTP joints (Metatar-sophalangeal 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.
The Distance model features a semi-transparent TPU, while the Race model is powered by a lightweight carbon fiber torsion unit.
Torsion Efficiency Unit™
The midsole features the new RunLite™ foam midsole material which offers lower weight and better energy return from the very first step.
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.
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.
Roomy Toe Box
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.
Our heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
Our 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.
2 Layer Construction
Covering mile after mile calls for a combination of comfort and durability. Accordingly, our shoes designed to function in more rugged environments utilise a 3 layer upper construction. A first layer of mesh material adds comfort, while the middle stabilises 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.
