Updates to Salomon Odyssey Pro

  • The Odyssey Pro is a hiking shoe that comes considerably light thanks to its minimalistic profile and mesh upper. It is engineered with Salomon’s Sensifit technology which gives the shoe a snug interior and ample flexibility.
  • Stability on the trail and cushioning underfoot are provided by the shoe’s EVA midsole. It comes with a special compound called Energy Cell Plus—a technology that helps users exert less energy in every step. 

Size and fit

Salomon’s Odyssey Pro is a low-cut day hiking gear for men and women. It runs fairly true to size and comes in standard width. A range of whole and half sizes make up its sizing choices. The shoe’s classic lacing system and Sensifit technology work together to give wearers a precise and secure lockdown. 

Outsole

Providing day hikers with the right amount of grip over rocky trails is Salomon’s very own Contagrip outsole. Its low-profile square lugs are arranged in a grid, offering traction in practically every direction, whether the surface is level or uneven. Its front tip extends to the upper, giving the shoe adequate toe protection.

Midsole

The Salomon Odyssey Pro promises ground protection and stability with its springy yet durable midsole. It is made of EVA or ethylene-vinyl acetate, a special type of foam that has a level of stress and weight resistance, as well as adequate flexibility. Further making every ground contact comfortable is the removable Ortholite sockliner. It has a molded construction for added support. 

Upper

A mostly mesh upper grants the Odyssey Pro breathability and lightness. Synthetic overlays cover vital parts of its surface, which includes the toe box zone, for protection against abrasive elements. For debris-proofing, the shoe has been tailored with a gusseted tongue. Standard synthetic laces and eyelets comprise the Odyssey Pro’s lacing system. It is worthy to note, however, that only the top pair of eyelets are grommeted.
