Salomon's premium traction

Endowing users the ability to take on trails whether wet or dry is the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip outsole. Its surface is adequately lugged with a kind of geometry that allows for multi-directional grip.

Shock absorbent supportive midsole

With its injected EVA midsole, the OUTpath Pro GTX gets to stabilize the wearer’s balance over unpredictable trails and surfaces. It cushions the foot and mitigates shock upon each landing thanks to its thick construction. It also grants arch support and stability with the molded shank embedded in it.
