The goal

S/Lab is about collaboration. Their goal is to push the limits of the everyday, to go further and play on the edge of what is possible in nature. They achieve this by playing together, firmly believing that progress can only be achieved through play. Athletes, designers and engineers combine forces to design products to meet the future demands of their sport. 

Based in Annecy, at the foot of the Haute-Savoie Alps, Salomon’s Design Centre lies in the perfect playground for real-world testing of their innovative creations. Play and progress.

The Salomon S/Lab Story

Salomon S/Lab Shoe Technology

Shoes

With trail running shoes developed for and by a series of top ultramarathon champions including Anna Frost and Kílian Jornet, Salomon’s S/Lab Sense range is packed with industry-leading technologies. The Premium Wet Traction Contagrip® soles offer assured grip up and down rugged mountainous terrain. Profeel Film chassis improves the overall rolling of the shoes during toe-off, and provides consistency and stability through the middle of the shoe. The Sensifit fit-system provides a virtually customised fit all around the foot, while the Quicklace closing mechanism is an easy-on, easy-off one-pull tightening system.

Salomon Athletes

“I think we are living in a very interesting moment, where many synergies and many inspirations from different people doing different activities. All of these different inspirations will make the sport of the future.”

Emelie Forsberg

“As a teenager I spent a lot of time rock climbing and skiing that brought me to the mountains where I fell in love. The mountains took my heart away and ever since then I have loved skiing, running or climbing in them. In 2012 I joined the international salomon team and since then I have been running races all over the world, and loved every bit of them. Running is so much more than just a hobby!”
