S-Lab Sense 7 SG Trail Running Shoe
Favoring all-out speed, the Salomon S-Lab Sense 7 SG Trail Running Shoe is suited for competitive trail runners seeking a minimalist platform that's both stable and supportive. Its low-to-ground design enhances tactile feedback of the trail surface, but without being as skimpy in the padding department as zero-drop shoes with smaller stack heights.
For an energized ride you've got Salomon's Energy Cell+ midsole, which is comprised of a lightweight foam that's incredibly firm and responsive underfoot. The firm padding means you'll stay protected from rugged trail surfaces—all without requiring the thicker profile of trail shoes with softer cushioning. In turn, this minimalist padding allows Salomon's engineers to shave excess weight, lending a featherweight sensation that's designed for swiftness above all else.
The breathable mesh upper maintains comfort within the show, while the QuickLace system offers a speedy adjustment option, securing with a simple pull and locking toggle. Along the sole, the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip grips aggressively across variable surfaces, ranging from packed forest trails to rocky alpine scrambles. This tacky rubber even treads over soft and slippery surfaces, thanks to its larger lugs with generous spacing.

The Sense SG (Soft Ground) 7 is hands down the best race shoe for loose ground and technical trails on the market. Salomon stripped about a half ounce on the 7 over the 6 and it makes for a more streamlines upper that loses its large toe cap and overlays. The SG gives you the confidence to race on technical trails and through snow and mud. Being such a light shoe, 7 ounces, the SG isnt the best for ultra distances but for short and fast races. The fit is true to size and feels locked in and dialed for a snug fit you want to race your best!
