The young American brand Speedland, which was founded by designers Dave Dombrow and Kevin Fallon, who previously showed themselves as part of such eminent companies as Nike, Puma and Under Armor, introduced its first product — trail running shoes SL: PDX . The novelty is positioned as high-tech sneakers for long and intense running on rough terrain, including in foothill and mountain conditions..
The mesh upper of the new sneakers is made predominantly using Dyneema’s high-tenacity fibers, including the stitching of the connecting seams. The mesh material is complemented by dense, supportive synthetic overlays, which are fixed by a two-zone PerformFit Wrap lacing system implemented by two BOA Li2 rollers. The maximum average weight of a pair is 584 grams.
The outsole of the sneakers has a four-layer adjustable structure, consisting of a removable carbon arch support, two removable shock-absorbing layers made of Pebax SCF foam, as well as a tenacious Michelin outsole, created from a mixed thermopolyurethane. The properties of the outsole allow you to independently configure the geometry of the spikes, their position and height up to 3 mm. The height difference between the heel and toe is only 5 mm (heel 28 mm, toe 23 mm).
The new Speedland SL:PDX running shoe is currently only available on pre-order and in one colorway. Shipping is scheduled for mid-August. The cost of placing an order through the official website of the manufacturer is 375 US dollars.
