MODEL

LITE TRAIN K

A lightweight, responsive men’s and women's low-cut shoe with a knitted upper and MICHELIN® outsole for speed hiking and mountain training.

Technology at your feet

The shoe is built around MICHELIN® sole platform, which was developed exclusively with SALEWA. Its special Outdoor Compound has a sculpted and grooved design, inspired by mountain biking tires, that delivers excellent slope-crossing traction and optimal adaptability, including on soft and uneven terrain. Additionally, SALEWA’s 3F Total System provides additional support to the mid foot by extending the 3F System into the lacing area. This increases stability and gives a more precise fit.

Safety first

It has a breathable knitted mesh upper for enhanced moisture control. Developed in partnership with Soles by MICHELIN®, the design is focused on total grip and saving weight. The aggressive lugged outsole ensures perfect traction, so you can move quickly through technical, rugged mountain terrain, whether rapid hiking, trail running or uphill interval training.
