Salomon Men's Sense Ride 5
The Salomon likes to pack their shoes full of features and the Sense Ride 5 does not disappoint. This is arguably Salomon’s most versatile trail shoe for all conditions and this year we see changes to both the midsole and outsole while maintaining the last and fit so as not to disappoint previous users of this shoe. Salomon has moved to their Energy Foam midsole which will feel a bit more cushioned than the previous version but perhaps also more responsive. The outsole has a redesigned lug pattern that should give a bit more grip in the wet and or loose terrain but isn’t so aggressive that the shoe loses its versatility. Overall we would say that the Salomon Sense Ride 5 is pretty much the perfect all around trail shoe that excels in almost any conditions.
