Updates to Salomon OUTline

  • The Salomon OUTline is a low-cut hiking shoe built with an emphasis on lightness and comfort on the trail. Its textile fabric upper is reinforced with synthetic overlays for added structure.
  • The shoe’s injected ethylene-vinyl acetate (EVA) midsole provides cushioning and stability on uneven terrain. Its non-marking Contagrip outsole is engineered to deliver traction on virtually all types of surfaces.

Size and fit

Salomon’s OUTline is available for men and women in a range of whole and half sizes. It is offered in standard width. The shoe’s lace-up closure system grants a secure and personalized lockdown to the wearer. The shoe fairly runs true to size.

Outsole

The OUTline uses a non-marking Contagrip rubber outsole to render traction. Its surface is filled with 5mm, reverse chevron-shaped lugs that grip on wet and dry surfaces. The sole’s front section extends upward to provide extra protection against stubbing. Its heel area contains a grooved design which grants improved control in downhill situations.

Midsole

The Salomon OUTline’s midsole is made of lightweight EVA foam. It acts by reducing shock and providing a cushioned ride to the wearer.

The shoe’s removable Ortholite footbed grants arch support and underfoot comfort. Its open-cell structure creates a cooler in-shoe environment by moving moisture away from the foot. The footbed also incorporates an EVA heel cup which provides additional support.

Upper

The Salomon OUTline features an upper made of textile fabric, making it lightweight and breathable. It is reinforced with synthetic overlays to add structure to the shoe. A protective toe cap is found at the shoe’s front end for enhanced durability and resistance to abrasive elements.

The footgear’s closure system uses a series of round eyelets (the topmost pair are plated) for proper and secure lace management. A gusseted tongue prevents debris from entering the shoe while the padded collar promotes comfort.
