Salomon is well known for their trail running shoes – so much so that’s it’s basically woven into the company’s DNA. But they’re going to shake things up a bit next year when they dive into the street-running shoes category. The S-Lab Sonic will lead the charge with city-specific features like an 8mm drop, breathable mesh upper and ample cushioning and protection against the constant pounding of even pavement. This shoe is aimed at high-level runners and also features SensiFIT technology, 3Dflex, endoFIT, Contagrip, 3D ProFeel chassis, Energy Cell+ and EnergyCell midsole. Basically, it looks like Salomon is taking all of their shoe technologies and are going all–in on this street shoe. Marathons will be won in a pair of these babies. MSRP: $170

The next level down in Salomon’s street running lineup is the Sonic Pro. It has much of the same technologies as the S-Lab verson but is a bit heavier with a lower price point. Still, it has SensiFIT, 3D stretch air-mesh, 3Dflex, and EnergyCell midsole. MSRP: $140

This new shoe is geared toward long-distance runners with a combo of light weight and just the right amount of cushion and grip. It’s 20 grams lighter than previous versions thanks to a new lug geometry, premium WET Traction Contagrip, Profeel Film chassis, and a triple-density compressed EVA midsole. It also has a redesigned mesh upper for maximum moisture transfer. MSRP: $180

This trail running shoe is built for technical terrain, and is especially constructed to give runners more comfort and control on steep descents. It does this with a redesigned Agile Chassis and ProFeel Film and “descent control technologies.” Other features include 3D air mesh, mud guard, protective TPU toe cap, SensiFIT, and more. MSRP: $140

In the water category, Salomon will soon offer the Crossamphibian. It combines a running bottom and wet grip sole with a stretchy, close fitting, mesh upper that dries fast and prevents debris from getting into the shoe. New water-specific grip with rubber siping means you can walk on slippery rocks with no fear of slipping. With this much traction and protection like a toe cap and Skinguard upper, I see this as a perfect shoe for summertime fly fishing or pack rafting. MSRP: $120

Features include 3D Edging Chassis, vertical construction, mud guard, heel strap, mountaineering Contagrip, and injected EVA midsole. MSRP: $150
