An almost invisible upper with just what you need to run fast. And, nothing else.
The reverse camber (rocker) means you’ll spend less time on the ground.
Lightweight, responsive foam created by combining EVA and Olefin [OBC] to deliver long-lasting cushion and bouncy energy return.
The resistant yet airy TPU Mesh is extremely breathable with no added weight.
Inspired by Salomon's ski heritage, this curved midsole geometry helps you feel like you are floating over the ground.
The seamless Featherlight Collar is soft, comfortable and minimalist without sacrificing fit.
From the first moment I had these on I knew they were special. I've run in low drop Salomon and Inov8 trail shoes for years but needed something for the road that wouldn't wear out as quickly. With a bit of plantar fasciitis, I am focussed on running with high cadence (~180 spm) and these shoes somehow magically promote faster feet. I've run about 100 km in them now and am happy on all counts. They are light, very comfortable, incredibly ventilated, fast and I can run 20+ km on hard surfaces without too many plantar fasciitis worries. They also look very cool IMHO (I run with a matching cap for good measure...). I have to add that I'm very pleased with the friendly and responsive service I received from Blue Mountains Running Co. Awesome shoes, awesome shop and a very happy runner!
I thought I would take a chance on the SLabs, never having worn them, because they are so damned sexy. They are a great fast shoe with excellent spring and good road feel. Great breathability, which is fantastic for summer (but did make my toesies quite chilly on a frosty morning). Plus, once again, absolutely amazing service from blue mountains running company. Love you guys!
