Salomon's Synapse Shoe is a natural motion hiking shoe that will intuitively speed up your trail adventures. Run your hike!
Intended as a movement-inspired trail hiking shoe, the Synapse feels like it outperforms many trail running shoes as well. Not the best choice for going for a stroll- you might find yourself running. This is the shoe that helped ultrahiker Jennifer Pharr Davis set a new Appalachian Trail speed record last year Tightly woven mesh upper delivers hot-weather breathability, yet repels grit and debris on dusty trails and bushwhacks Quicklace(TM) system dials in fit Rubber toe cap protects your toes Non-marking Contagrip(R) sole for stability in any trail condition Large, staggered lugs flex on impact Highly cushioned midsole is augmented with Salomon's OS Tendon. This creates a rebound effect to the toe-off motion Runs slightly long
Designed for women who take an athletic approach to hiking, the Salomon Synapse Low Hiking Shoes allow natural motion and have been redesigned for better grip and stability. Breathable and abrasion-resistant mesh uppers feature synthetic leather overlays that wrap and secure insteps for a precise fit; toe caps provide protection. Quicklace(TM) lacing system takes just a single pull for an exact fit; lace pocket hides lacing away. Textile linings wick moisture away from your feet to keep them comfortable. Washable OrthoLite(R) EVA foam insoles enhance comfort. Injected EVA midsoles maximize cushioning, comfort and rebound with higher durability than average EVA foam. OS Tendon thermoplastic urethane frames run along the outsoles of the shoes to facilitate better heel-to-toe transitions and push-off efficiency. Nonmarking Contagrip(R) rubber outsoles on the women's Salomon Synapse Low Hiking Shoes deliver traction across mixed terrain and sloppy trail conditions.
Salomon designed the Women's Synapse W+ Hiking Shoe for ladies who take a more athletic approach to hiking. Since you like to hike both quickly and comfortably, the Synapse uses Salomon's natural motion system. 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.
