Spring Into Summer With Salming

Our May competition features fantastic footwear offerings from quality Swedish brand Salming.

The design and construction of Salming running shoes can be derived from the natural running technique and the biomechanical laws that govern human movement when running. Natural running shoes should be designed to facilitate for you to find the right running technique/form. Salming applies what they call the Rule of 5, and all shoes promise to be: light, flexible, flat, thin and comfortable.

This month, we are offering one lucky male and one lucky female a pair of Salming shoes, you can choose either the Elements or Trail T2 model.

Run Anywhere
When adding the Elements model to their range Salming aimed to create a performance trail shoe which incorporates their running concept and principles. Elements enables you to run anywhere and get the best out of you. The outsole provides exceptional traction on both wet and dry surfaces. Elements has a more roomy toe box compared to its trail sibling, the Salming Trail, in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.

Built To Endure
Head for the woods and explore the rugged outdoors with Salming's latest version of the Salming Trail - T2. This extremely versatile and lightweight trail shoe features some of their latest innovations allowing you to perform at your very best even on the most technical terrain. T2 has a new outsole compound which significantly improves grip in wet conditions. The RocShield™ protective area provides needed side shielding, while the dynamic outer sole features a high grip non-slip lug pattern made from our most durable rubber compound. Dig into any terrain with the light, technical and reactive Salming Trail T2!
