The Amphib Bold 2’s updates

This sequel to the original Amphib Bold comes with some welcome fine-tuning. What we mean are as follows:

Anti-odor sockliner

In place of the missing lace pocket, the Amphib Bold 2 has a footbed that combats odor. This sockliner also proactively deals with moisture, so your tootsies can stay as fresh as possible, especially after traipsing through water.

Shaved-off weight

This is especially true when comparing each one’s men’s variant. The difference is approximately 20 g a pair, in favor of the Amphib Bold 2.

Improved midsole

Salomon engineers made the Amphib Bold 2 even more shock-absorbent by enhancing the midsole’s rigidity-to-cushiness ratio. Rebound is upped in this version, as well.

Some extra and interesting stuff about the Amphib Bold 2

  • Besides water hiking, you can use this shoe for some light trail running.
  • This hiking shoe from Salomon has a collapsible heel, transforming said hiker into a slip-on when folded in.
  • There are no seams or gaps on both sides of the shoe’s tongue. This kind of construction blocks out debris and other foreign materials.
