These shoes are made for running

Ever wondered what goes into making bespoke shoe? Well, check out this behind-the-scenes video on how Kilian Jornet’s Salomon kicks are made. From foot beds to outer treads, nothing is left to chance – though not the lightest in the world, the 205g weigh-in ain’t too bad for these smart SLABs!

    Great video. I wonder how much it would “theoretically” cost to have your own custom shoes made?

    Great video…. love how Kilian gets the technician to grind back the sole for more weight savings..

    Love my Slab3s….
