Salming T1 Review: A Nice Trail/Mountain Hybrid Shoe
Overall the Salming T1 is a great first offering from Salming, and they are now on my radar for future models. I do think a more trail specific model (as opposed to the more mountain/hybrid design of the T1) would be nice to see – maybe a shoe that has reduced lug (yet still full rubber outsole) and a light, seamless and breathable upper more like their Race R1 on the same midsole geometry. As it is, the T1 is a little heavy and lacks some breathability to stand out as a pure trail shoe, but given its nice ride mixed with its mountain shoe upper and hybrid outsole, it makes a really nice mixed terrain shoe that works great to get from the bottom to the top of a mountain without feeling wanting in any type of terrain. They also mark the first pair of review shoes I’ve received that I’ll continue to keep in my rotation.
