Lightweight, waterproof hiking shoe designed for fast-moving, natural strides over moderate trails.
Pull on the Salomon Women's Synapse CS WP W+ Hiking Shoe and cover slightly rough terrain at a quick pace all year long. The low-cut profile brings plenty of ankle flexibility and helps keep this shoe light for fast hikes, and the waterproof breathable membrane fights moisture from the inside and outside so you won't have to worry about late-fall rain storms or early-spring puddles. Its women-specific design means it has a thinner and sleeker bottom unit, more support on the internal side, and a seamless Sensifit lining that cradles your foot for a more feminine fit. Its non-marking Contagrip sole utilizes a high abrasion-resistant rubber compound with staggered lugs and an all-terrain grip so you have confident and dynamic traction on any surface despite how bumpy or slippery it is. Included in the sole is the OS Tendon, which is an elastic material that connects the forefoot to the rearfoot in order to absorb and return energy on toe-off in order to encourage your stride and improve endurance. The lining wraps entirely around the foot for a 360° fit that offers a more precise placement when you step over logs. The Ortholite footbed adds to the comfort of this boot by creating a cool, dry, and healthy cushioned sockliner for your foot. Its EVA midsole includes an OS Muscle (extra large EVA cushioning) to prevent fatigue on longer hikes.
The Synapse also has enough protective features to ensure comfort at a light weight. First of all, the combination of the water resistant textile, waterproof bootie construction, and a Climashield Waterproof membrane ensures your foot remains dry after you step into puddles and streams. Its protective rubber toe cap prevents you from stubbing your toe, the gusseted tongue keeps debris out of your boot, and the Quicklace sysetm lets you tighten it all up around your foot with one quick pull.
