Runner-Up, Best Overall: Salomon Sense Ride
Salomon says that the Sense Ride is a “quiver killer,” meaning that it has been built to replace all the other trail running shoes in your closet. That should give you an indication of how versatile this shoe truly is, and thankfully, it lives up to the promise. The Sense Ride is a comfortable option for runners who just want to pull their shoes on and go. The inclusion of Salomon’s Quicklace system makes it easy to do just that, and when locked into place, lightweight laces make sure the shoe stays firmly on your foot throughout a run. The Sense Ride is a rigid, stable, and durable shoe that provides good traction on a wide variety of terrains in both wet and dry conditions. Whether you’re just out for an easy run on non-technical trails or you’re prepping for an ultramarathon, these shoes can pretty much do it all.
