Next up in the 2015 running shoe preview series via Runningshoes.com is Salomon. The two shoes we’ll take a look at here are the S-Lab Sense Ultra 4 and the S-Lab X-series.
Salomon S-Lab Sense 4 Ultra
I just recently reviewed the Salomon Sense 3 Ultra – one of my favorite shoes of the year so far. Light and fast, like a racing flat for the trails. Looks like the Sense 4 Ultra will have a more breathable mesh on the upper (breathability was one of my few complaints about the 3), and an updated lug design.
Salomon S-Lab X-Series
The X-Series is is basically an adaptation of the Salomon Sense trail shoe line to the road. The X-Series features a stretchier upper in the forefoot and a softer sole than in their trail shoes, both of which sound very appealing to a guy who loved the Sense Pro and Sense 3 Ultra but runs mostly on the road.
