Salomon S-Lab Sense Giveaway

Salomon is about to jump into the lightweight, low-drop trail shoe market in a big way with the pending release of the S-Lab Sense. The Sense is the shoe that Kilian Jornet wore during his victories at the 2011 Western States 100 and the 2011 Ultra-Trail du Mont Blanc.

I have yet to see this shoe in person myself, but I received an email last week asking if I would be willing to hold a giveaway of one pair of the shoes to a reader – hence this post. Here are the only two rules (which are restrictive, so read carefully!).

1. The shoes are not yet in production, and are thus only currently available in men’s size 9. Thus, thus winner must be a men’s size 9 – there will be no exchanges for a different size (pre-production shoes are typically only produced in one or a few sizes).

2. The winner of this particular giveaway must live in the United States. There will be giveaways through multiple outlets in multiple countries (they are giving away 106 pairs), so if you live outside the US check blogs and shoe sites from your country of residence.

To enter, fill out the form below. I will choose a single winner from the list of contest entrants on Friday, March 23:

Contest is now officially over.

    i’ve been wearing salomon trail shoes for years and since going midsole and low drop, it’s been hard to stick with them.  I am super excited for these shoes.

    One out of two…

  5. Phillip Gibb says:

    very nice. I wonder where Salomon sits with regards to the whole barefoot phenomenon and reducing the drop to 0mm. Where does the Sense sit in that drop range?

  6. They look quite narrow between heel and forefoot.  Won’t work for everyone.

    10.5/11 here. I’ll pass. :) Good luck to the size niners out there!

  8. Jeff Lorow says:

    I’ve never been so happy to be a size nine!
