Founded in 1947 by Jeanne Salomon, her husband François and their son Georges in Annecy, south-east France, the brand celebrated its first major breakthrough with the invention of a ski binding with automatic release. Their passion for mountaineering and outdoor activities led to the development of the first Salomon running and hiking boots in the 90‘s, as well as suitable equipment and apparel. Today the range also includes a huge selection of high-quality hiking, snowboarding, freeskiing, ski touring, running and expedition backpacks designed specifically for each task.
Hardly any other company is as closely connected with the world of trail and ultrarunning as the French company. Running off the beaten track is booming and has very specific requirements, to which Salomon has responded with numerous exceptional athletes, engineers and designers in the company's Annecy Design Center with many innovations. Decades of experience from victories in the greatest ski, running and mountain competitions in the world, from record runs to the highest peaks of the world and expeditions of several days on one's own two legs or skis have helped create every single product. When you tie Salomon's Quicklaces and shoelaces and slip over their apparel, you know there's feedback from desert runners and world champions, UTMB, Western States and Leadville winners like Ryan Sandes, François D'Haene, Emelie Forsberg, Courtney Dauwalter and Kilian Jornet.
Especially the high demands of the probably best endurance athlete of his generation - the Spaniard Kilian Jornet - who needs shoes and equipment for short mountain runs, hot, steep or stony long distances or cold, snowy record climbs of legendary mountains like the Matterhorn, Mont Blanc or Mount Everest, has significantly influenced the functionality, versatility, durability and design. The S-LAB series stands for the absolute top class of current research at Salomon. All products of the brand benefit from the further developments in the S-LAB collection.
Depending on the terrain and weather and the length of the hike or run, different shoes and profiles are required and different clothing and equipment. For soft or muddy surfaces it is recommended to wear soles with aggressive grip and high pimples, such as the legendary Speedcross. These are often worn in cold or rainy weather, where it is also advantageous to have waterproof jackets and trousers as well as warming caps, gloves and multifunctional cloths with you.
Since trail runners, winter sports enthusiasts, mountaineers and hikers should also have some more food and safety equipment with them, a suitable backpack is indispensable. From the light and well-fitting running vest (e.g. S-Lab Sense or Advanced Skin) with enough space for 2 soft flasks or 1 litre of liquid to the robust alpine backpack such as the X ALP with ice axe holders: At Salomon every detail has been thought through.
Thanks to their accumulated expertise, only products that have been designed with specific goals and applications in mind can be found at Salomon. Fast-drying and water-permeable XA Amphib shoes for swimrun athletes. Sustainable shoes made from recycled materials such as the Crossamphibian Swift. Highspeed shoes such as the sealed XA Alpine, which are equipped for maximum heights and all conditions. It's time to play!
