Salomon's roots in outdoor sports go all the way back to 1947, when the fledgling company adapted their metalworking equipment to make edges and binding for skis. Salomon's interest in adventure sports expanded into areas like snowboarding, climbing, and hiking. In 2001, Salomon introduced their first trail running shoe, kickstarting the brand's current status as a preeminent name in trail running performance footwear.
True to its outdoor sports lineage, the ODYSSEY 1 LEATHER ADVANCED is a hiking shoe blending essential function with material depth and an athletic design aesthetic. Protective elements and support structures reflect design cues from action sports footwear, and a premium finishing in nubuck and high grade ripstop fabric bring added durability.
