Ultra runners rejoice.
The Salomon Men's S-Lab Sense Ultra Trail Running Shoe is the top choice for ultra runners seeking a nimble platform that doesn't skimp on protection underfoot. Seeing that ultra runners endure up to 100 miles of punishment on the trail, the S-Lab Sense Ultra Trail Running Shoe has a higher stack height (27/17 millimeters) than other shoes in Salomon's S-Lab line. This translates to greater cushioning for completing grueling distances, but without reducing much in the way of tactile feedback or balance.
Providing fast adjustments, the Quick Lace system gets you off and running without fumbling with tying knots or making constant adjustments. Breathable mesh across the upper heightens comfort when you're sweating profusely on the trail. Extra cushioning along the collar prevents nasty blisters from slowing you down, which is especially important across long distances.
It packs Salomon's EnergyCell+ midsole, which is comprised of a lightweight foam that's incredibly firm and responsive. Along the sole, the Premium Wet Traction Contagrip treads aggressively across variable surfaces, ranging from packed dirt to loose rubble and rocks in the alpine. This rubber is tacky enough to provide grip in the wet, meaning you won't lose balance over slippery roots and rocks.

I am not a runner, but have been looking forever for a really comfortable shoe that my fused ankle can handle. I have owned 6 pairs of Speedcross over the years and loved them, had an older pair of the wings and liked them also, but these new new Ultra trail shoes are so darn sweet! I normally wear a 10.5 and thats exactly what I ordered, fit mint!
