What & Why

Trails rated as Difficult, usually have a 15% grade with large obstacles, roots, and possible scrambling or climbing.The trapezoidal lug pattern offers really nice traction on a wide variety of surfaces. Gravel, dirt, and loose rock are no problem for this contra-grip sole. The flat lugs also make this outsole feel really nice on hardpack or asphalt.

  • Salomon Shoes

    Excellent quality shoes, very fitting, wore out one pair, ordered 2 more pairs. The lace up system is very convenient and has outlasted the shoe.

What & Why

Trails rated as Intermediate usually have a 10% grade with small rocks and roots, and easy scrambling. The Lone Peak was inspired by one of the most rocky, rugged mountains in the Wasatch Range and was designed to tackle the gnarly terrain of run. There's technology that offers protection from rocks and other trail debris while, the outsole combines unique uphill and downhill lug traction for every trail condition.

  • Buy These Trail Shoes!

    Best Trail Shoes Ever! I had the chance to road test some demos back in January and have been anxiously awaiting the July release. The best shoes are the ones you don't ever think about when you are running. These are those shoes. The fit is perfect, the cushion just right, and the grip is spectacular. I have so much confidence bombing downhills. Yet they are comfortable enough to go long. I've ran up to 50 miles in one stretch in the demos and I plan on wearing in my next 100. Buy these shoes!

    - fat2fastrunner from RSM, CA
