Salomon Synapse - Perfect for Nordic Walking

Earlier this year Salomon, the Athletic Outdoor Company, introduced the SYNAPSE, the first natural motion walking and hiking shoe.

With a flexible, highly cushioned midsole and a 10mm heel-drop, the shoe reduces heel strike impact when walking. Featuring a rounded heel it ensures correct foot placement. The springlike OS Tendon element in the midsole allows for a smooth heel-to-toe transition and better terrain feel with less restriction to the natural rolling motion of the foot. Salomon’s renowned Contagrip™ outsole with staggered and multidirectional lugs ensures traction and grip whether you are ascending or descending and for a variety of surface conditions. The highly breathable and quick drying textile upper, welded Sensifit™ and Salomon’s patented Quicklace™ system provide climate control and superior foothold, while keeping the overall weight (340g) in the vicinity of a trail running shoe. This effectively makes the Synapse one of the lightest hiking shoes available.
