Salomon Outpath Pro Gore-Tex Walking Boot
Light and flexible but highly responsive, the OUT PATH PRO GTX® is the perfect solution for those who want to break their own trail and still benefit from ankle support.
A huge part of the uppers construction is the Gore-Tex membrane. Gore-Tex is well known for its reliable waterproof properties as well as its superb breathability. This means that all water is blocked from entering through the material but cool air is allowed to flow through at the same time as warm air is being released, creating a cool environment inside of the boot – ensuring a dry wear. The upper also uses Waterproof Synthetic overlays to wrap the foot and hold it snugly in place, increasing comfort, stability and offers additional waterproofing, giving the wearer peace of mind. This material is also extremely durable, offering much-needed protection from loose debris along the trail which could cause damage to the boot and the foot. The seamless Sensifit construction provides a snug and supportive fit with a reduced risk of chafe and discomfort which is commonly caused by large, bulky seams and stitching. A protective cap has been placed across the heel and toe area of the boot. This will offer much-needed protection to these key areas which could potentially be damaged or feel discomfort if the boot is knocked against rocks, walls and various other loose terrains that are commonly found along the trail. These caps can also offer additional support, helping to hold the foot securely in place inside of the boot. The reinforced zip which runs from the top of the ankle to the upper forefoot area of the boot is quick and easy to adjust and offers a snug, supportive fit. A snap button system has also been placed on the upper ankle area which offers a snug fit around the ankle. This can vastly reduce the risk of water entering through the opening and disturbing the dry environment inside of the boot. Made from a Moulded EVA layer, the footbed moulds to the wearer’s individual foot shape and offers much-needed support as well as cushioning.
Injected EVA Midsole
Supporting mile after mile of trekking, an injected EVA lines the midsole – an industry leader on good merit, EVA is both light and flexible, with a great disposition as a cushioning material. It actively reduces forces pressed upon the underfoot for a smooth stride through the transition with ample of shock dispersion. The format assists with keeping weight down and maximising responsive cushioning whatever the terrain ahead. A Torsion Shank placed in the midsole offers much-needed stability for that much-needed, firm base. This will reduce the foot twisting too much, reducing the risk of injury.
High Traction Contagrip Outsole
The Salomon Outpath Pro GTX Walking boot features a Contagrip outsole, providing unique traction technology. With a mix of compound, lob geometry and density, it gives the boot brilliant grip and durability, regardless of the terrain underneath. Utilising different combinations of harder, softer and grippier Contagrip compounds, Salomon’s adventure running outsole provides the perfect blend of grip and durability to cover a multitude of terrains. Designed with specifically positions forefoot flex grooves and self-cleaning multi-directional lugs, these outsoles are field tested and proven to dynamically tackle rugged terrains.
