Light, sleek, and simple
Overall a happy medium between the Speedcross 3 and the Sense Ultra, both of which I've enjoyed. Super solid construction--in my experience, typical of Salomon shoes--and great fit thanks to the quick lace and "Endofit" inner sock/tongue. The fit is a little higher volume than in either the Speedcross or original red/white Sense, both of which fit my low volume foot very well; however with the quality of the uppers and the effective lacing scheme this has not been a problem.
I was hoping this would be a little more like a stripped down Speedcross than a beefed up Sense Ultra; when will Salomon make a lighter version of the Speedcross??
