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.
|Ideal for||Trail running|
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.
