    They are very similar to the Slab-Wings, but offer a little more width and volume in the midfoot and toe area.

    The biggest change here is the removal of the entire plastic “chassis” ahead of the heel. That and other tweaks should give a more natural feel including allowing some moderate pronation.

    The benefit is a closer fit and less slop between your foot and shoe—a boon over unpredictable surfaces. - See more at: http://www.switchbacktravel.com/best-trail-running-shoes

    That, combined with Profeel film inside the newer chassis, creates the perfect combination of protection and agility so that I never felt stiffness or instability in my step

    And, the no-longer-bulky forefoot is easily reined in thanks to Sensifit, which wraps feet snugly and is easily adjusted for tautness with the single-pull lacing.

Updates to Wings Pro 2

Salomon presents several substantial changes in the Wings Pro 2. Nothing is more significant than the removal of the 3D chassis from the heel to a simple heel chassis. It gives this running shoe sufficient stability, but with better flexibility and a softer ride.

Adding a new level of overall softness in the ride is a new dual-layer of cushioning where the softer foam sits on top of the stiffer layer. This has really changed the feel of the cushioning from very firm to soft, especially in the forefoot.

Salomon also eliminated the very solid rubber toe cap of the past version and replaced it with a synthetic one. This gives the forefoot added breathing space without compromising protection.

Outsole modification is also offered in the form of two rubber compounds. The past version only had one, which was for durability. This 2nd version of the Wings Pro 2 incorporates sticky rubber as well.

Wings Pro 2 size and fit

The fit of the new Wings Pro has also been changed. It is decidedly more generous than the original model, particularly in the forefoot. This will be superb for those with slightly wider feet and those with more volume as well. Salomon offers the shoe under the usual widths of D for the men’s and B for the women’s. The available sizes are 7 to 14 for the men’s and 3 to 11 for the women’s.

Outsole

The outsole features Contagrip trapezoidal lugs for excellent multi-directional bite. Runners will also notice two rubber compounds differentiated by the color. One is for the very sticky rubber compound while the other one strategically placed in high-impact areas is for durability. A Pro Feel Film or a rock protection plate that is very flexible and resilient is located in the forefoot.

Midsole

The midsole uses a dual-layer of compressed and injected EVA. As mentioned, the softer layer sits on top of the firmer foam for superb balance between shock absorbing features and soft cushioning. The “wings” is a heel chassis that supports the heel really well and helps with the transition from landing to take off.

Upper

An anti-gravel mesh that is also breathable makes up a large portion of the upper. There is also the presence of Sensifit overlays that deliver great support and structure. Inside the shoe is the Endofit or the soft inner sleeve for added comfort and enhanced lockdown feel. The collar and tongue are well-padded and help with the prevention of debris from entering the shoe. Finally, an Assymetrical Quicklace System makes foot entry and exit a breeze.
