Salomon elevates its position in the road running market with its Spring/Summer 2024 collection, showcasing a fusion of biomechanical research and trail running expertise. This range includes versatile footwear for all runners, featuring both durable, recyclable shoes and those designed for speed and comfort.
Salomon is well known for producing running shoes in the trail running segment, but it is clear that the brand is now also investing more and more in the road running area. Here’s a brief overview of what’s in store for Salomon’s running shoe launches for spring and summer 2024.
I will go into more detail on the different shoe models when I have tested them later on.
Salomon’s Spring/Summer Road Running Shoe Collection 2024
Here are the road running shoe models that Salomon has now introduced for road running. These generally come in two different colors and I will also present these in more detail at a later stage.
Salomon DRX Bliss: Ultimate Comfort Meets Stability
The DRX Bliss emerges as a standout, crafted for everyday runners who prioritize comfort. Incorporating Active Chassis technology, similar to the Genesis trail running shoe, and paired with Energy Foam, it offers a stable and cushioned underfoot experience.
This shoe balances high-stack benefits with support, featuring a responsive midsole, supportive ankle collar, and SensiFit technology for a secure fit. It’s environmentally friendly too, with a significant portion made from recycled materials.
Salomon INDEX.03: Sustainability in Every Step
The INDEX.03, now in its third iteration, underscores Salomon’s commitment to sustainability. The updated version boasts a more comfortable midsole made from lower density InfiniFOAM, offering enhanced cushioning.
The shoe’s unique construction, using fewer materials and undyed fabrics, reduces its carbon footprint while maintaining full recyclability.
Salomon Aero Glide 2: Maximum Cushioning for Long Runs
Building on the success of the Salomon Glide Max, the Aero Glide 2 is designed for long-distance comfort. It features a high-stack midsole with Energy Foam, combining EVA and Olefin for superior shock absorption and energy return.
This model ensures continuous comfort over extended distances, thanks to its R.Camber rocker geometry and breathable upper made with recycled materials.
Salomon Aero Volt 2: Light, Fast, and Bold
For runners seeking a lighter, speedier option, the Aero Volt 2 offers an attractive choice. It shares the Aero Blaze’s bottom unit but differentiates with a single-mesh upper for enhanced airflow, making it ideal for warmer runs.
This model stands out as the lightest in the franchise, designed for dynamic performance and comfort.
Salomon Aero Blaze 2: A Harmonious Blend of Lightness and Cushioning
The Aero Blaze 2 strikes a perfect balance between cushioning and lightweight design. It features Energy Foam in a more standard stack height, ensuring both comfort and responsiveness.
The shoe’s engineered mesh upper provides flexibility and breathability, making it suitable for a variety of running conditions.
Salomon’s Spring/Summer 2024 collection offers innovative solutions in footwear and apparel that cater to every runner’s needs, from sustainability to performance. It will be very interesting to try the new collection of Salomon road running shoes later in the spring!
