Salomon Forces – Toundra MID WP

Wednesday, February 11th, 2015

Salomon and mountain sports are almost synonymous having been founded in 1947 in the French Alps. With a name like Toundra, you know that a boot is going to be all about cold weather and that describes this boot to a “T”.


Maintaining warmth down to -40°C/°F, the Toundra was developed with a focus on lightweight. At just 660 grams per pair (23.3oz for size 8.5UK/9US), Toundra is by far the lightest boot in the extreme cold weather segment. Ounces on the feet equate to pounds on the back and the less a Soldier exerts himself in the cold, the better.


The secret to such lightweight performance is the insulation. Salomon teamed with Aspen AeroGels, a leader in the nanotechnologies industry. Incorporating SpaceLoft, a textile developed initially for NASA space suits from the lightest material ever created, they saved weight and volume on the Toundra Mid WP. But insulation alone didn’t optimize the boot. It was design. SpaceLoft is strategically placed only where insulation is needed, for a less bulky, better-adapted boot that provides comfortable support for long periods of wear. For example, the toe area has insulation which helps prevent body temperature from escaping the boot.

Aerogel Insulation

The sole is the Winter Contagrip, a specific combination of rubber, lug geometry and density designed for ice and snow. Whether you have to spend a night in a cold, wet environment or stand up for hours, this boot is an ideal partner: drive-ready, run-ready and super-comfy with flexibility and EVA cushioning.


Toundra is Salomon’s warmest winter boot for extreme environments. It keeps feet warm to -40C/-40F, and is lightweight, durable and flexible, featuring NASA approved Spaceloft insulation technology, and a Winter Contagrip sole designed for snow and ice. Additionally, it is lined with synthetic fleece for comfort and waterproof thanks to a Climashield membrane.


Salomon Forces footwear are available through your favorite military outfitters such as Tactical Distributors and US Elite Gear. The Toundra may have to be special ordered.

SSD Exclusive – Salomon FORCES Footwear Lineup

Tuesday, January 6th, 2015


Here are the first official photos of the inaugural 2015 SALOMON FORCES range, designed specifically for military and law enforcement.

Based on end-user demand in Europe and the USA, the French company Salomon developed a new segment of footwear products for professional customers.

Based on popular, existing models that have already proven their mettle during hard missions over the span of multiple deployments, Salomon has adjusted a few features to make them even more appealing for FORCES customers.

Closed-hooks, gusseted tongues, murdered-out and tan colorways are the primary features they’ve integrated into the new line. But they haven’t stopped there. Salomon is applying over 20 years of footwear expertise into the continued development of FORCES for the foreseeable future.

The very Salomon line was created for extreme winter sports. They have been built to withstand extreme cold weather in mountainous conditions. Turns out, they are also well suited for load-carriage during fast movements during recce and direct action missions. But now, they’ve increased the brand’s versatility across more environments by offering the choice of shoes with or without Gore-Tex membrane.

Thus far, the FORCES line consists of 14 articles that will enhance the performance of tactical law enforcement and military end-users everywhere.
