 PRODUCT DESCRIPTION OVERVIEW

Salomon Sense Mantra

 

RELEASE DATE:

  • April 2013

  

The Sense Mantra trail shoe is a door to trail version of the S-Lab Sense minimal shoe.   In this shoe, there is a  little more rubber in the outsole so that it will work for more runners, especially those who run a mile or two on the roads between their home and the trailhead.

The Sense Mantra features a 7 mm heel-to-toe drop, so runners may adjust to the minimalist platform more quickly than in more minimal footwear.   This trail shoe offers a lot of protection from both rocks and sticks.  There is a layer of flexible, puncture-proof material which offers great protection from trail debris.

This shoe brings your feet closer to the ground without feeling all the rock debris on the ground and allows for a soft cushioned trail run.   The Mantra felt like a lightweight training shoe and provided good protection and neutral cushioning for my longer runs.   A low heel-to-toe offset promotes a mid-to-forefoot strike.

These shoes felt good for mid to long trail training runs. These were a good option for making a translational shoe in moving from a normal trail shoe to a more minimalist trail shoe. Also, I have used them for a few half marathons which the shoe felt light and fast.
