Who does the Salomon Pathfinder cater to?
The Pathfinder, which is part of our expanding list of high-quality hiking kicks, is for folks who wish to rack up trail miles in a comfy-yet-protective shoe. As to who else the shoe caters to, read the following:
- As the Pathfinder’s upper is largely made of mesh, the shoe in question is for hikers who need extra breathability in their outdoor escapades.
- It is for fans of Ortholite footbeds, which prevent hiking shoes from getting smelly.
- With its outsole having a smoothed-out forefoot, the Pathfinder can be used by hikers who frequently smear on small (no more than 2 ft) boulders.
- It is for folks who usually trample over loose and pebbly soil.
The Salomon Pathfinder’s big brother
With the release of the Pathfinder, our collection of Salomon kicks has once again been diversified. That said, the shoe in question is not alone in this regard. Indeed, it is joined by the Pathfinder Mid CSWP, which is a supportive boot with a waterproof membrane, called Climashield.
Choosing between the two is rather simple. If you regularly hike in dry conditions, opt for the featured shoe. If you need that extra ankle security and prefer to stay dry and fresh in shallow waters, go for the Pathfinder Mid CSWP.
