Get confident steps with the Salming Greyhound outsole

The outsole unit of the Salming Greyhound is made of a rubber compound configured by the company, Vibram®. This layer is designed to protect the bottom part of the midsole foam from the abrasive nature of the surfaces. It is also touted to have a grippy construction that permits the runner to enjoy confident steps over the asphalt. The Hoka Speedgoat 3 likewise employs this outsole material.

A decoupled striking spot is fashioned near the heel of the external pad. This section is fundamentally a part that is separated by a deep groove. The purpose of such a design is to isolate the impact forces generated by the striking phase, averting unnecessary discomfort from coursing through other areas of the foot that are not yet in contact with the ground.

Shallow flex grooves are patterned across the forefoot section. These not-so-obvious trenches are meant to make the sole unit slightly flexible, accommodating the bending ability of the toe joints as they gear the foot towards the toe-off.

Enhanced energy returns with the Salming Greyhound midsole

Recoil PLUS is a Salming technology that is touted to offer 20% more energy return than other cushioning systems from the brand. It runs the whole length of the Salming Greyhound, bringing support to the entire underside of the foot. It has a responsive nature to allow energy to affect the quality of each step, with the toe-off benefiting the most from such a feature.

A sockliner is placed right on top of the main cushioning unit. The purpose of this add-on is to act as a soft surface for the underfoot, separating the usually firm lasting board from the perception of comfort.

Cool and dry running experience with the Salming Greyhound upper

A breathable mesh is used for the upper unit of the Salming Greyhound. This material is configured to permit environmental air to effortlessly enter the foot-chamber, thus bringing a cool and dry ride for the runner to enjoy. Visible pores accentuate the purpose of ventilating the in-shoe surroundings.

A three-layer construction allows the upper unit to provide a snug and secure fit at all times. This feature also makes sure to bolster durability while preserving the breathable aspect of the silhouette.

Several synthetic prints are strategically placed on the front, sides, and rear. These elements are meant to bolster the aesthetic aspect of the silhouette. But they also help with the attainment of a secure fit by buttressing the fabrics and connecting to the traditional lacing system.

The gusseted tongue unit is designed to prevent road debris from entering the shoe’s interior compartment. It also keeps itself from deviating to the sides or bunching towards the front, thus giving a consistently smooth wrap.
