Updates to Salming Miles Lite

  • The Salming Miles Lite is a comeback of a previous series, which now focuses on trail running. A notable change is a single-layer mesh upper. The primary purpose of this is to make the shoe lightweight without compromising breathability. 
  • The shoe uses the same outsole and midsole material as the original version.

Size and fit

The Salming Miles Lite is a shoe designed with neutral pronators in mind. Thus, the fit specifications of this shoe follow the standard running shoe for feet with medium arches. These include medium widths of the heel and forefoot, a moderate midfoot volume, and average heights for the toe box and the arch.

The shoe also offers a light, adaptable fit through the upper elements: The heel cup promotes security and the anatomical last guarantees a proper toe splay.

Outsole

When compared to the Adidas Ultra Boost that uses the STRETCHWEB outsole, the Blown Rubber is integrated into the Salming Miles Lite. This lightweight material aims to deliver excellent traction in a wide variety of terrains. With the increased grip, the runner need not worry about possible slippage during the trail running activity. 

Midsole

Negative impact forces are absorbed by the Recoil midsole. This technology is essential in releasing a higher amount of rebound energy during the run. As a result, a more efficient and effective toe-off phase is experienced by the user. 

Utilized in crafting the shoe is the Torsion Efficiency Unit. It lies in the midfoot range of the padded midsole. This unit is described to be a transparent TPU that adds to the strength and sturdiness of the platform. It also gives arch support and help in decreasing the strain on the foot of the runner. As a result, the maximum running efficiency is encouraged and generated.

The TGS 62/75° is used in making the running shoe. This design aims to extra stability from the heel to the ball of the foot. This feature ends with a 75° line, which is significant in promoting greater flexibility, making sure that the shoe accurately bends in the right and proper places. With the utilization of this component of the Salming Miles Lite, the foot’s natural forward and lateral movements are stimulated.

Upper

The single-layer upper construction is integrated into the shoe. This material is focused on providing lightweight breathability, making sure that a fresher and more relaxed foot environment is experienced by the wearer.

To help in stabilizing the foot, the ExoSkeleton design is utilized in crafting the running footwear. Together with its ability to provide stability, the relief from experiencing pressure on the MTP joints is offered as well.

Used in the Salming Miles Lite is the heel cup. This design is meant to provide an adaptive heel fit while maintaining its lightweight structure. As a result, a transformable and customized fit is encouraged. 

The more roomy toe box is integrated into the Miles Lite. Salming added this feature of the shoe to make the forefoot expand widely and adequately during the running activity. This is essential in keeping a more effective landing phase.
