Salomon S/Lab Genesis Shoe
Available Mid May - Notify Me
If you prefer to calculate your outings in scrambles, ridgelines, crushing vert, and number of scree fields crossed instead of mileage and time, Salomon decided to make the S/Lab Genesis shoe just for you. Built for the toughest days in the craziest terrain, the Genesis is built around the concept of high durability and high protection from the elements you for some reason decide to put yourself in time after time. A reinforced toe cap and extra protection on the medial side are combined with a Profeel film in the midsole that helps protect your feet from rocks, roots, and all the things out there waiting to attack your feet from any angle. The Matryx upper is an amazing mixture of lightweight, breathable, and highly durable. The all-terrain Contragrip outsole excels in wet conditions but grabs any and all terrain with its 4.5mm lug depth. The Endofit construction creates a superb fit that wraps the entire foot with even pressure distribution that won't require constant attention since the Quicklace system was created to stay put after you "lace" up your shoes. The integrated gaiter may not go up your leg but is nonetheless effective at keeping out very small rocks and other debris. Salomon is once again leading the way into what seems like a whole new category of shoe with their S/Lab Genesis.
