Product of the month: Salomon Crossamphibian Swift 2

A breathable water shoe for summer adventures, the Crossamphibian Swift 2 is perfect for people who like to use outdoor products in line with their personal values.

Sustainability, performance, comfort and grip

Crossamphibian Swift 2 is made with a generous amount of recycled and/or natural materials. However, in addition to being sustainable, it also performs. The lug geometry is designed for wet surfaces. Additionally, a specific compound, along with small drainage lines on the sole (similar to what is used on shoes in the sailing industry) give the shoe improved adherence to wet surfaces, delivering outstanding grip on wet surfaces, even on underwater rocks.

The collapsible heel allows the shoe to be worn like a comfy slip-on and a protective toecap helps keep the feet safe from rocks. Crossamphibian Swift 2 is soft, flexible, breathable and lined with naturally sourced mesh, making it as comfortable barefoot as it is with socks. It also keeps the foot in contact with the healthier materials for barefoot use while reducing the impact of production on the planet.    

Sustainable footprint

The sock liner cover of the Crossamphibian Swift 2 is made from 10 grams of coffee grounds using S-Café technology, which also helps with odor control. The mesh parts of the shoe are comprised of PET (polyethylene terephthalate,) which is what plastic bottles are made from. Every pair includes the equivalent of 1.75 plastic bottles. The synthetic upper sections are made of 50 percent corn fibers, using two ears of corn waste. The suede of the tongue is made of recycled plastic.
