Updates to Salomon Sense Pro 4

Featuring a lightweight structure and aggressive traction, the Salomon Sense Pro 4 is a versatile running shoe that is suitable for any challenging trail runs. This neutral running shoe has been completely rebuilt from sole to upper for improved fit and efficient ride. 

The designers incorporated a soft hydrophobic upper to effectively prevent rain or water from getting inside the shoe. The quick-drying upper is also highly durable and breathable, providing a high level of comfort and protection. 

Optivibe™ technology is utilized in the midsole for better shock absorption. The Optivibe™  midsole is coupled with the Profeel Film for excellent underfoot protection and a responsive ride. The Profeel Film rock place is responsible for filtering rocks and sharp surfaces to deliver a more stable ride. 

The Contagrip® MA outsole is also featured in this trail running shoe for premium traction in both wet and dry conditions.

Size and fit

This Salomon running shoe is manufactured with a standard shoe length. The technical components that affect the fit of the shoe include the EndoFit™ system, which offers a sock-like feel. Other elements are the Internal SensiFit™ and lacing systems that deliver a secure and customized fit.


A highly durable rubber called the Contagrip® MA is integrated into the outsole of the Salomon Sense Pro 4. This material balances both the geometry and the rubber compound for exceptional durability. The outsole also delivers a firm grip on dry, wet, and loose surfaces. The Contagrip® MA outsole is also used in the Salomon Sense Ride 2.


Optivibe™ technology is featured in this lightweight running shoe. This technology is created from a combination of different foam materials. It is included in the shoe to help reduce vibration in every foot strike, aiming to decrease muscle fatigue for a more comfortable running experience. 

A thin TPU film called the Profeel Film rock plate is used to complement the Optivibe™ foam. This component offers midfoot protection by filtering rocks and sharp surfaces without losing ground feel. 

The molded OrthoLite® insole is utilized for superior cushioning. This soft material delivers a blend of durability and breathability, providing premium comfort and underfoot protection.


The welded top features a stitch-free upper construction, which gives a smooth and glove-like feel. The upper is made out of a single layer mesh and water-repellent material. The mesh is placed closer to the foot for maximum comfort, while the water-repellent material is treated with a coating to prevent water from penetrating the shoe. These materials are working together to keep the foot dry and cool throughout the day. 

An internal fit sleeve called the EndoFit™ system is incorporated into the upper. This element is designed to provide a precise fit, giving support where it is most needed. 

The Internal SensiFit™ is also used for a snug and secure fit. It is composed of a set of fabric eyelets and printed overlays, which hug the foot from the midsole to the laces to deliver a personalized fit around the shoe. 

The Quicklace™ system allows for easy-on and easy-off. A lace pocket is also added to provide easy storage for the lacing system.
