Established by François Salomon in 1947 in the heart of the French Alps. Salomon and his family shifted their focus to fabricating metal edges for skis, and soon expanded further into mountain sports. Along the way, the brand has developed a range of high performance footwear, which is with advanced material research and performance testing. Its Contagrip® outsole is of excellent durability, flexibility, and a wet traction compound for slick conditions. The Salomon Quicklace System and lace pocket has been a patented design for more than 10 years. Salomon offers a range of sneakers built to perform in any environment.
