parkrun Nordics sponsor Salming are delighted to introduce their iconic EnRoute shoe! Since its launch in the spring of 2017, the enRoute has quickly become Salming’s marquee distance and training shoe, due to its lightness and driven feel, yet enough rebound cushioning to provide that smooth ride.
The EnRoute is a versatile shoe, a natural choice whether you’re a marathon runner or a parkrunner. Salming EnRoute brings out the joy of running, a shoe that could be your partner no matter what foot strike or running form you display.
In a relentless quest to improve and evolve, the EnRoute has had more space designed in the toe-box, enabling the forefoot to properly expand during the propulsion phase. This has been enabled by carefully reconstructing the front third of the ExoSkeleton, while maintaining its renowned characteristics that keep the foot in a proper position, providing a plush and snug fit. In addition to this, an extra front eyelet has been added.
The energy return and responsive ride that comes with EnRoute, is provided by the Recoil™ and SoftFoam™ technologies. The first is Salming’s responsive midsole compound with superior energy return, and the latter is an offset heel insert that is designed to lessen negative impact forces, creating a soft comfortable long distance ride.

Salming shoes are available from retailers such as Intersport, Stadium, Team Sportia, and XXL and specialist retailers such as Runners Store, Klubbhuset and Assist. You can also visit their Concept Stores in Askim, Göteborg and Kungsgatan 19 in Stockholm.
