Grip that can be trusted

This hiking shoe is powered by the Contagrip outsole - a long-wearing rubber sole designed to survive tough conditions. It features a pretty aggressive lug pattern that works well on dry and wet surfaces.

There are siping or cuts along the edges that help with the extraction of water.

Salomon's Contragrip soles are a mix of rubber compounds of varying densities. This means that different zones or areas of the outsole are either firmer or softer, depending on what texture or density is more appropriate for those parts. 

Salomon Tech Lite: Keeps the feet pain-free

The shoe midsole consists of a high-performance EVA foam. It's a lightweight cushioning material that has great shock absorption and energy return properties.

EVA stands for ethylene-vinyl acetate which is highly flexible and resilient. EVA's ability to reduce the strain on the foot by absorbing impact makes the Salomon Tech Lite a very comfortable shoe that can be used for hours of walking.
