What We’re Saying: When you think of Salomon, your mind likely goes to rugged, outdoor-specific footwear with copious amounts of tread. The Phantasm, however, is completely different.

Inspired by the brand’s heritage on the slopes of the Alps, the Phantasm is a road runner — yes, Salomon does those, too — specifically designed for racing. The sleek silhouette was made with breathability at the forefront and with a fast transition in mind. The overall curved geometry of the shoe gives the sensation that you’re floating over the ground as opposed to barreling down with each step.

A stitch-free, single-layer mesh upper offers a glove-like fit, ultimately providing you with maximum feel. Below you will find lightweight and responsive foam that combines EVA and Olefin to deliver superior cushioning and bouncy energy return. The Contagrip FA then incorporates wide lugs for enhanced grip on hard, flat surfaces, further making the overall design ideal for road running.

Now available in a stealthy all-black colorway, the Salomon S/Lab Phantasm will presumably add some versatility to your footwear lineup, especially compared to most other models from the brand. If you’re into the streamlined build and unrivaled performance capabilities, you can pick up a pair by following the link below.
