Updates to Salming Trail T4

  • The Salming Trail T4 is a versatile trail running shoe designed to enhance the runner’s performance even on the most technical terrain. This shoe features the same midsole and outsole technology as its predecessor. 
  • This lightweight running shoe now uses a ripstop nylon fabric upper. The durable coverage material offers reliable protection from trail hazards. The overlays included in the upper also provides added comfort and durability. 

Size and fit

The Salming Trail T4 features the traditional lacing system for a comfortable in-shoe feel. This component allows the user to easily adjust the tightness around the shoe. 

This running companion is designed using the standard shoe measurement to accommodate the usual sizing preference of the consumers. However, trying on the shoe first is a good thing to consider to ensure a perfect fit. Consumers may also check the general user feedback about sizing before purchasing a pair of shoes.


Just like the other durable running shoes, such as the New Balance 1400 v6 and Mizuno Wave Rider 23, the Salming Trail T4 also uses a blown rubber material. This component offers a great grip on most surfaces. This lightweight rubber outsole also protects the rest of the platform and the foot from the rugged terrain. 


The Salming Trail T4 utilizes the RunLite midsole cushioning for maximum comfort. RunLite technology features the high abrasion injection EVA (ethel vinyl acetate) designed to deliver a responsive and flexible ride. It also allows for optimal ground feel. 

The TGS 62/75° design provides the heel to the ball of the foot with added stability and ends with a 75° angle. This design equipped the shoe with a higher level of flexibility, allowing the platform to simulate the foot’s natural movements. 


The upper unit of the Salming Trail T4 is manufactured with two-layer sandwich construction. The first layer close to the foot features a thick air mesh that offers plush comfort. The second layer is a thin net mesh that prevents the sand and gravel from entering the shoe. It also enables excellent water drainage. 

The ripstop nylon fabric used in the upper is highly durable. It also protects the top of the foot from debris, small rocks, and other elements. 

On top of the two-layer construction is the Exo Skeleton technology. This design helps stabilize the foot and relieve pressure at the metatarsophalangeal joints. It also eliminates friction and reduces the forces in the soft parts of the foot, especially underneath the forefoot. 

The heel cup integrated into the shoe provides an adaptive heel fit, keeping the foot from sliding up and down while running. 

This running shoe features the lace-up closure for a more secure and customized in-shoe feel.
