Updates to Salomon Sense Marin
- The Salomon Sense Marin features the 3D open mesh upper material. It is lightweight, breathable, thin, and stretchable, so it’s able to provide the foot a more comfortable and enhanced fit.
- Aside from the regular molded EVA foam, the midsole of the shoe also features the combined functionality of the EnergyCell+ and ProFeel Film technologies. The EnergyCell+ gives long-lasting and high-rebound cushioning, while the ProFeel Film provides added foot protection and ground feedback.
- The outsole of the Sense Marin features the premium Wet Traction Contagrip technology. This sturdy layer ensures reliable grip while running on wet or dry surfaces.
- Lastly, the shoe also utilizes the Salomon’s famous Quicklace System. It has a minimalist, one-pull tightening system that basically makes the fit much easier to adjust.
Salomon Sense Marin size and fit
The size of the Sense Marin runs small. To get the right size, one must purchase half-a-size larger than the usual running shoe length. Salomon offers the shoe in the standard width for both men and women. The semi-curved shape of the shoe mimics the natural curve of the human foot.
In the outsole of the Salomon Sense Marin is the Wet Traction Contagrip technology. It is designed to provide a reliable grip while running on the trail. It offers a strong hold even on wet and slippery surfaces.
The Sense Marin utilizes the molded EVA midsole. It is a reliable foam unit that provides lightweight cushioning and springiness to each step.
The shoe also uses the EnergyCell+ technology. It is a high-rebound compound that specifically designed to provide long-lasting rebound. This midsole compound also offers added underfoot protection.
Lastly, the ProFeel Film is placed between the midsole and the outsole. It is a thin piece of TPU film that protects the foot against sharp objects without affecting the ground feedback.
The upper of the Salomon Sense Marin uses the 3D Stretch Air Mesh, which provides breathable and lightweight coverage. The open mesh also stretches to provide the foot a comfortable environment.
Along with the open mesh upper is the Sensifit system, which supports the foot from the midsole to the lace. The Sensifit provides a secure, snug, and customized fit. It works perfectly with the Endofit technology that provides a sock-like feel for an enhanced comfort and fit.
The shoe also features the minimalist, one-pull tightening, Quicklace System with friction-free lace eyelets. This lacing system facilitates an easy-on and easy-off of the lace. Along with it is a lace pocket that keeps the lace secure while running.
