Salomon Tech Amphib 4 updates
The Tech Amphib 4 is technically a refreshed version of the Techamphibian 4. While they have many similarities, the upgraded shoe one-ups the old model with the following:
- Salomon’s Tech Amphib 4 is lighter than its former self by about 20 grams.
- Its vent panels are more defined, resulting in better breathability.
- The shoe in question is now partly made of recycled plastic bottles.
The things that make the Tech Amphib 4 a must-buy
Water hiking shoes have grown in numbers through the years, giving buyers more than enough options to choose from. That said, the Tech Amphib 4 has elements to it that make it a standout and a must-have. Here are some of them:
Collapsible heel. When this part is folded in, the Tech Amphib 4 becomes a sandal-like slip-on. Just be sure to pull it back up when you are leaving the shoe to dry.
Lace pocket. Its tongue has a sleeve where you can tuck the remainder of the Quicklace in for a safer trail ride.
Siping. This type of sole engineering enables the Salomon Tech Amphib 4 to catch a better grip on wet surfaces. A siped outsole functions the same way as a dog or a cat’s paw does.
