Review: Salomon Sense Ride

By Julia - 12:26:00

Let me introduce you to one of my running shoe staples: the Sense Ride by Salomon.
This shoe already came out a while ago and there is a follow-up model. You find a Goretex version as well.
I bought mine a year ago and wore them for plenty of kilometres.

Brand: Salomon
Modell: Sense Ride
Heel to toe drop: 8mm
Weight: 250gr

Price: 120€ (but by now you find this one reduced in a lot of places)

The Sense Ride is according to Salomon an all-terrain, all-distance shoe. And I can't argue against it.

Getting in feels right away really comfortable: the upper is a breathable mesh and the shoe fits nice and snug. I have quite narrow but long feet and I love the fit of all Salomon shoes I tried. And even I very much enjoy the more spacious toe box of this shoe (compared to the Speedcross). My toes can really spread out when I run. Another plus: the Sense Ride dry very quickly after getting wet.
They come of course with the Salomon Quicklace system and the little pouch to get the lace out of the way - works well and comfortable.
The heel is reinforced which gives me the necessary stability in the shoe and the toe area is covered with stronger material for some extra protection.

The Sense Ride is equipped with the Vibe technologies to absorb unwanted vibrations but still aims to stay responsive. Which is what they do. I feel comfortable even on my long runs but still can get speedy in them if I want to. The cushioning is actually so good that this shoe made it to top of the list long run favourite.

Let's talk outsole: The shoe has a Salomon Contagrip outsole which guarantees great grip and traction on most terrains. Even though the lugs are a little less aggressive than on other Salomon trail shoes. But therefor the Sense Ride doesn't mind runs on tarmac either (where an aggressive lug system is rather in the way) which I very much appreciate. If any, deeper mud would be the least ideal when you're out in this shoe.

Another plus about the shoe is how easy it can transfer into other areas of your life: aside from running, it is a great light walking or hiking shoe. Especially when I've been travelling I enjoyed the multiple areas the Sense Ride works in. Adding the obvious: they are a very good looking shoe as well (which always helps) and come in a wide array of colours.

As I mentioned I had mine for about a year now and they do show some minor wear and tear: The mesh is rubbed off slightly on the top of one shoe and a little hole starts developing as well - nothing that stops me from wearing them yet though.
