Designed for folks who take a more athletic approach to hiking, the Salomon Synapse Hiking Shoe incorporates Salomon's Natural Motion design, which moves more naturally with your foot for increased comfort and performance. Rather than stuffing your foot into a design that holds back your anatomical mechanics, the springy midsole material and unique sole shape allow your foot to naturally roll through each stride so you glide over rough terrain quickly and efficiently. The design also incorporates Salomon's EndoFit sleeve system to eliminate irritation and hot spots caused by exposed laces. SensiFit cradles your foot for a precise fit, and a molded EVA midsole provides support and absorbs shock. Closure is taken care of by Salomon's QuickLace system, which allows precise adjustment with one hand. A lace pocket keeps your laces from hanging out where they can snag trail debris and trip you up. A protective rubber toe cap protects your toes from the inevitable stub. Salomon finished the shoe with its sticky ContaGrip rubber outsole and offset Dynamic Traction lug pattern to provide traction in varied terrain conditions. Light, breathable, and cushioned for comfort, the Synapse Shoe will quickly replace that heavy hiker you've been using to punish yourself all these years.
