Yet maintaining enough rebound cushioning to provide that smooth ride. The EnRoute is a natural choice for the Boston Marathon as well as the early morning runs. Salming EnRoute brings out the joy of running, a shoe that could be your partner no matter what footstrike or running form you display.
3 Layer Construction
Covering mile after mile calls for a combination of comfort and durability. Accordingly, the shoes designed to function in more rugged environments utilize a 3 layer upper construction. A first layer of mesh material adds comfort, while the middle stabilizes lateral movements and reduces pressure on the foot. The exterior thin net mesh encapsulates and wraps up the front in a neat fashion, adding durability to the shoe.
The distance from heel to the ball of foot (62% of the shoe) has been designed with extra stability, which ends in the so-called “ballet” line, a 75° angle. In front of the 75° line, Salming have equipped the shoe with greater flexibility to stimulate the foot’s natural movements. The TGS 62/75° feature assures that the shoe bends in exactly the right places, stimulating the foot’s natural lateral and forward movements.
The Exo Skeleton design stabilizes the foot in lateral movements and relieves pressure at the MTP joints (Metatarsophalangeal joints). This part of the design construction eliminates friction and reduces the impact of the side forces in the soft parts of the foot, especially underneath the forefoot.
The toe box is more roomy in order to provide a possibility for the fore foot to expand properly in the landing phase, making it more effective in a biomechanic perspective.
Torsion Efficiency Unit™
Responsive without being overly supportive – The Torsion Efficiency Unit™ brings sturdiness to the shoe. It is appropriately placed to generate maximal running efficiency.
The material in the midsole is a newly developed compound named RECOIL™ - which is a super lightweight cushioning compound that releases a high rebound energy effect.
Heel drop is essentially a measurement for how fat a running shoe’s heel feels. It’s short for “heel to toe drop,” shortened to “drop.” It tells you how much taller the heel is than the forefoot.
A cushioning compound featured in the heel impact zone designed to reduce impact forces. The SoftFOAM™ heel insert area has 70% better shock absorbing properties than standard EVA midsole. The RECOIL™ and SoftFOAM™ combined - creates a sandwich construction made to maximize your performance.
Featherlight heel cup is specifically designed to add minimal weight to your shoes, creating a transformable, adaptive fit.
