Salomon Outline Prism GTX: Bringing out your sporty side
If speed is what you are after, the Outline Prism GTX is more than ready (and happy) to oblige. Now it is easy to attribute its promise of agility to its lightness, but the shoe in question has other characteristics that make dashing through trails possible. These elements are as follows:
Welded debris-preventive shell. This ingenious upper construction will allow you to make daring strides, all while keeping small rocks, blades of grass, and the like at bay.
Close-to-ground design. While its sole unit can hardly be categorized under barefoot, it provides an intimate feel of the terrain, thanks to its extra flexibility. On it, you will feel more in control without fear of getting injured underfoot.
Cushy-yet-resilient footbed. On top of additional support for your midfoot, this insert from Ortholite has return-to-form engineering, which grants a combination of bounciness and longevity. Translation: In the Outline Prism GTX, every step you make has a spring to it, and you can hike for longer in comfort.
- If you wish to trade ankle freedom for more collar support, try the Outline Prism Mid GTX instead.
- When it comes to lightness, the urban hiker OUTbound GTX from Salomon is also a competent choice.
