Good to know

  • The Salomon Wings Pro 3 is a running shoe that’s designed for the trails. It has been geared towards providing reliable surface control and underfoot steadiness. Neutral runners and mild overpronators are the ones who are going to benefit most from this model’s midsole. The slightly raised medial midfoot section of the platform prevents the arch from buckling under strain or impact against the uneven terrain.
  • A net-like mesh material makes up the upper unit of this trail companion. Its layered design protects against debris infiltration while its small breathing holes encourage in-shoe airflow. The Sensifit™ system of overlays holds the foot in place and prevents it from wobbling
  • Slippery conditions are the specialty of the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip®. This outsole rubber has multidirectional gripping lugs that clamp onto the surfaces with sureness and ease.

The Salomon Wings Pro 3 features a standard length for running shoes. It accommodates the usual choices of consumers when it comes to size. The available width profiles are B – Medium for the women’s version and D – Medium for the men’s iteration. The semi-curved shape of this model’s last mimics the natural curve of the human foot.

The outsole unit of the Salomon Wings Pro 3 makes use of the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip® which is a rubber compound that’s meant to provide sure traction over the surfaces. It’s configured to hold onto both dry and wet ground.

Gripping lugs that face different directions sanction the runner to tackle different types of surface conditions, as well as ascents and descents. These protrusions also heighten the durability of the external platform.

Underfoot cushioning is given by a full-length compressed EVA or ethylene vinyl acetate foam. The purpose of this layer is to provide cushioning and attenuate impact shock during the landing phase of the gait cycle.

The Profeel Film is a layer of synthetic material that’s placed between the outsole and midsole. Its job is to ease the heel-to-toe transition and maintain a steady platform as the shoe rolls through the gait cycle, fundamentally acting as a foundation that strengthens the integrity and usability of the underfoot base.

A molded Ortholite® sockliner offers additional cushioning. It contours to the shape of the arch and other crevices of the underfoot, fundamentally giving support to sections that don’t usually receive it.

A layered mesh makes up the external part of the Salomon Wings Pro 3’s upper. Its net-like design shields the interior sleeve from debris while also encouraging air to enter and keep the foot well-ventilated.

Same as in the popular Salomon Sense Ride 2, this shoe uses the Sensifit™ overlay system that runs like extending digits across the upper silhouette. These printed layers hold the foot in place and prevent it from destabilizing during the running session. It’s a practical design that averts many injuries like sprains and strains.

The Quicklace™ is a single-pull fit adjustment unit that fine-tunes the security preferences of the wearer. It tightens or loosens with only one move, removing the traditional process of tying shoestrings. Strong yet reedy cables make up the crisscross laces.
