You may never run the gruelling miles of the Western States 100 or the Ultra-Trail du Mont-Blanc. But it’s good to know that the S-Lab Sense Runners have done both. Designed in collaboration with champion ultra-runner Kilian Jornet, they bring the buffering you need for relentless runs, while keeping you in touch with your body and the trail.
- Uppers are open mesh and synthetic materials for quick draining and drying.
- Tongue covers feature lace pockets.
- Quicklace system for fast shoe-ups.
- Seamless Sensifit construction for chafe-free running.
- Internal fit sleeves allow comfortable wear with or without socks.
- Toe caps for rock protection.
- Midsoles are EVA with thin TPU mesh sandwiched in the middle to allow you to feel the trail while protecting against rocks and sharp edges.
- 13–9mm heel-to-forefoot drop promotes forefoot/midfoot running and natural motion.
- Racing outsoles are non-marking Contagrip® rubber that’s light enough to flex slightly under load, and makes more lug height available for grip.
- Dynamic Traction with OS Tendon technology allows for maximum surface area and traction on dry surfaces, and lets the larger lugs engage in mud.
Some shoes include added motion control or stability features to help minimize pronation or supination, where the foot tends to roll inward or outward in a biomechanically imbalanced running position.
The approximate thickness of the midsole cushioning under the heel and the forefoot. A thicker heel and greater difference between heel and toe height tends to suit heel-strike runners, while forefoot and midfoot strikers may prefer a minimal drop between heel and toe cushioning.
|13 - 9mm|
The drop is the difference in height between the heel and the forefoot midsole cushioning. Traditional running shoes tend to have a 10mm drop or higher while minimalist style shoes are on the lower end of the spectrum.
Waterproof shoes and boots feature a waterproof-breathable membrane and a gusseted tongue to help keep your feet dry in wet conditions.
