Tomir is Norwegian for training. Well, that's a guess. Kilian Jornet is Spanish for, "how the, what the, why the?" Kilian trains more than a little bit and in those epic adventures amongst the fjords and high peaks he finds himself with a set of NNormal's Tomir shoes on his feet. A more durable option for higher mileage, the Tomir is an exquisite example of a true mountain running shoe. One way to lower your impact on the environment is to buy fewer shoes, which oddly enough is NNormal's goal with the Tomir, to build a shoe that will stand up to more miles than other shoes. The upper is sewn to the midsole and made of a combination of polyester and TPU for abrasion resistance and high durability. Not just for looks, the asymmetrical lacing design is intended to reduce pressure points and give a more secure hold on the forefoot to keep you in touch with your shoes and the trail. A generous stack height and EVA midsole cushion your feet and offer plenty of rebound with each stride. Meant to do it all for every runner and hiker, NNormal's Tomir shoe is an optimal choice for any outing.

SkyRun Fit Tip - We suggest ordering the Tomir in your usual US shoe size for a proper fit.

  • Highly durable upper will keep you going for more miles than you can imagine.
  • Vibram Megagrip outsole with Vibram Litebase material is 30% lighter than traditional Vibram soles.
  • EVA midsole is light, well cushioned, and offers some rebound to help you be happy and efficient.
  • Abrasion-resistant upper is sewn to the midsole to increase durability.
  • Additional set of laces will help you spice up your running life.

Question from Sam
 
Hi! Im trying to figure which size to order, i had Salomon senseride 3 in US 9 1/2, currently im using (not for trail) bondi 8 in US10 and boston 12 in US 9/12. My feet are 27,2cm which sould put me at US 10 or should i go fort the 8mm extra space with 10,5?

Answer from Jeremy L
 
Hi Sam, NNormal's size chart above is pretty accurate—there is no need to size up in the Tomir. At 27.2, I'd recommend you go with your Salomon size, 9.5.

Unfortunately, these shoes did not hold up for me at all. I washed them in warm (not hot) water, and the plastics inside the heel cup completely warped, making the shoe unusable. I have taken care of these shoes like I have all of my other shoes. To put it in perspective, I used my Saucony Peregines for over 1000 miles before throwing them away.

I've attempted to get a warranty exchange on these shoes, but NNormal has been VERY slow to respond to the request. Their customer service and response has been pretty bad. Think weeks/months rather than days to hear anything back if you need to resolve an issue.

Before I had the issue of the heel collapse, I would say that these shoes have a highly padded but stiff feel to them. The foam is defintely denser than something like the Salomon Ultra Glide or Hoka Speedgoat. The tread is very aggressive, which makes them great on steep dirt, but I found myself snagging my toes on trails with a lot of roots or plants.

I bought these shoes on the idea that they would last much longer than a typical trail shoe. The ideals of NNormal building "sustainable" shoes resonated with me. I can't say that this has been my experience.

I will not be buying NNormal again, mostly because of their lack of response. I can appreciate shoe design flaws with a new company, but the lack of communication and response is disappointing. As much as I respect Kilian Jornet and the ideals that they convey in their marketing, they just aren't operating as a company the way I hoped.

My feet measure 26cm and my sneakers I buy with an insole size of 27cm, so these sneakers are not normal, which size is suitable for my feet? In the United States size it is equivalent to 9.5 on your website, correct?

Hi Rogerio, the size chart for these shoes is pretty accurate. It would put you solidly in a US men's 8.5. I measure 26.5 and wear a 9.0.

Question from Christoph
 
Is the Tomir comparable to la sportiva mutant? Why or why not?
Thanks!
8/24/2023
Answer from Andrew C
 
Christoph, both are great mountain running shoes and have slight differences. The Tomir has more cushion and the midsole is quite stiff, which means a lot of protection. The Mutant has slightly less cushion and a bit softer midsole, which means it is quite sensitive. On the outsole, both are quite sticky, the mega grip rubber on the Tomir will be a little more durable while the rubber on the Mutant will be slightly stickier. Both have quite deep lugs that do well in technical terrain.

Ultimately, the Mutant is a bit more lively while the Tomir is more protective.

Both have a similar fit; however, I would size up in the Mutant and stay true to size in the Tomir.

Question from David C
 
I wear Hoka Speedgoat 5 (12 2E wide) for my runs, but I'd give Nnormal Tomir a try. I am mainly concerned if Tomir's width is comparable to Speedgoat's? Otherwise my feet will suffer. I also would like to know if the store has Tomir size 12.5 (Wide) available.
8/3/2023
Answer from Andrew C
 
David, thanks for the question. Although it has a wider fit, the Tomir will not be nearly as roomy as the Speedgoat 2E and they do not have a wide model. A high-volume shoe with a lot of cushion, I would look at the Altra Olympus. Another high-volume shoe with less cushioning and better trail feel would be the Altra Mont Blanc.

Question from Chris
 
I typically wear a 13M in my other trail shoes. Would a 12.5M be enough shoe for my foot?

Answer from Will McD
 
Hi Chris, I clock in at 10.5 on the Brannock and my Tomir's are a size 10, so they do seem to run a bit long.
7/20/2023
Answer from Jeremy L
 
I'll add my two cents here as well. I think these are a little more true to size than Master Will's personal experience but everybody does have a preference of how they like their shoes to fit.

I'm in between sizes. I measure to about 9-1/4 on a Brannock and opted for a 9 in the Tomir. I don't have a full thumb width up front but sizing up to a 9.5 would have been a bit much. If you'd be willing to fill out our shoe-fitter I bet we could get you dialed in!

Question from Chris C.
 
Very interested in this shoe, but I know the sizing for Dynafit runs differently. Currently running in a sz 10.5 of the Speedland GS:TAM and for reference I tried on a pair of the Dynafit Ultra 100s in a sz 11.5 and my toe was right at the end. I know these run wider than the Ultra 100 so just curious if you'd recommend a sz 12 or 12.5. Thank you!
7/19/2023
Answer from Jeremy L
 
Thanks for reaching out, Chris. We find this shoe to be fairly true to size. If you are in a 10.5 Speedland, and it fits well, the Tomir in a 10.5 is the size I'd recommend. For reference, I measure to 9.25 on a Brannock, wear a 10 in the Ultra 100, and am between a 9 and 9.5 in the Tomir and size down to a 9. I hope this helps but please reach out to help@skimo.co if you'd like to dive further into this.

Hi Jeremy, apologies for my mix up! I was looking at both this shoe and the Dynafit 50. I mistakenly posted this here instead of on the Dynafit 50 page. I appreciate the size recommendation as I'll be picking these up, looking forward to seeing how the Tomir compares to the GS: TAM!

Question from Eric
 
Is the sizing for these similar to the Kjerag? Which seem to run longer than expected.
6/21/2023
Answer from Zak M
 
Hey Eric, the Tomirs end up fitting quite true to size for the most part. Unlike the Kjerag, which most folks have been downsizing 1/2 size, because of the lack of insole in the shoe.

I got these shoes as ski season began and used them for a few training runs during the winter but nothing substantial. However as running season began I find myself using them almost daily for my runs. The shoes are solid feeling, and are a true trainer. After 30+ runs in them they still look new. They are not as nimble or light feeling as the kjerag, but offer more cushion and a more solid feel from the trail to the sometimes necessary road miles. The rubber is plenty sticky for approaches to climbs and West Slab laps. Train like Killian!

Question from Marc
 
I've read that the last on this shoe is reasonably wide. My best fitting shoe is probably the Altra Olympus, and I need every bit of it's forefoot width. Any chance of this Tomir fitting me?
4/22/2023
Answer from Gabriel I
 
Hi Marc, the Tomir is noticeably less wide than the Altra Olympus. Though the Olympus is one of the widest shoes we've got, other comparable wide shoes that'll accommodate some forefoot width are the Dynafit Ultra 50 and La Sportiva Jackal.

Question from Henriette
 
Hi, there. Looking for a shoe for a 44km with lots of elevation gain and a mix of dirt, gravel, scrambling over lots of just rocks strewn around and called a trail. Plenty of uneven foot-planting, in other words. I'm finding that my old Speedgoats are super comfy, but I don't like the stack height for a route like this one. Loved my Salomon Ultra Max 3 (if that's the right name. the maroon unisex shoes), but after the Hokas, they feel too hard. Thinking about the Sense Ride 5, or another Hoka model, but really intrigued by these (though, my goodness, could they be uglier?!). Any advice would be appreciated.
3/23/2023
Answer from Patrick C
 
Looks aside, this is a very versatile shoe. The Tomir still has a fairly high stack height, but I'm willing to bet that stability and trail feel are better than the other high-cushion shoes you mention. The tread is aggressive enough to scramble, but still performs well on packed dirt, or (hopefully not) pavement. Overall this is a super versatile shoe that is intended to have you covered from distance runs to scrambley adventures. Hope this helps!

Thanks! I'm going to give them a try--in comparison with the Salomon Ultra Pro (I can never keep their names straight). Let's see what Kilian's all about.

Curious to know if this (or the Kjerag, or neither) would be a good pick for primarily dirt, gravel, and non-technical ultras.

Hi Kiel,

The Tomir would be a great choice for that style of running. I have a pair that I use on trails and some scrambling here in Salt Lake.

Question from Ryan D
 
Any thoughts on this model vs the WP model as far as warmth/durability? i.e. is the non-WP model ligheter/semi-permeable/breathable? Mostly curious for colder winter months here in the snowless southwest.

Also do the shoes fit true to size? I am on the bigger end of the size spectrum and am concerned the 12.5 might be a little short. For reference I generally wear a 47 in La Sportiva shoes.

Thanks for any and all the help you can offer!
12/14/2022
Answer from Emmett I
 
Hi Ryan,

The WP model will be the choice for winter months! It uses a material that is similar to Goretex, so it's waterproof and still relatively breathable. You can also get the mid cuff, which will be warmer and leave less of a chance for snow to sneak between your shoes and gaitors. Both the WP and the non water proof version are extremely durable. One employee here has 100+ miles on his and they look brand new! The WP is less breathable, so for the dry season, you could find that the breathability keeps your feet dryer and as a result, warmer. But for the winter, I would definitely recommend the WP.

As far as fit, the people I've talked to who wear the Tomir sized down a half size US. So I'd recommend going with the size 12.
