    What I don't like about the shoe ironically is the same thing I love about the shoe which is cushioning.

  • 98 / 100 | Road Trail Run | | Level 5 expert

    The Sense Pro Max is a superb and I would say more fun to run maxi cushion shoe than other current alternatives. With its all terrain versatility, quality construction and with no real compromises on any terrain the Pro Max is a strong new maxi cushion contender worthy of consideration.

  • 97 / 100 | Road Trail Run | | Level 5 expert

    The Sense Pro Max, with it’s excellent cushion, Vibe dampening, stability, protection, traction, quality and secure upper will certainly lead the way in the maximal shoe category and will likely be a top choice for those looking for a shoe to get them through races up to 100 miles.

    If you’re looking for a low profile, snug-fitting trail shoe that will handle most trail conditions, the Salomon Sense Pro is a great choice. It’s a shoe that is going to continue to get a lot of use from me, and I’d go so far as to say that it’s one of the best trail shoes I have tried, an all-around winner!

  • 85 / 100 | Trail to Peak | | Level 4 expert

    The Sense Pro Max is a sensible evolution to the Sense Propulse in Salomon’s line up, and fills a missing [sic] whole in the Salomon line up with a max cushion option.

    What’s good: the new, differentiating, or simply well designed or built features or aspects of the shoe.

  • The Salomon Sense Pro Max features the innovative VIBE technology. This midsole technology is the combination of Opal and EnergyCell+ compounds. The Opal is a lightweight cushioning compound that is designed for a soft and comfortable ride. The EnergyCell+ is another midsole compound that delivers a high-energy return for a more responsive ride.
  • On the upper of the shoe is the 3D Stretch Air Mesh material. It provides the foot a breathable coverage while enhancing the overall comfort. It is stretchable enough to hug the foot comfortably and provide a more personalized fit.
  • The Sense Pro Max also features the premium Wet Traction Contagrip® outsole technology. It provides reliable grip on varied surfaces, especially on wet and slippery conditions.

The Salomon Sense Pro Max has a standard running shoe length. For men and women’s version, the available width is medium. It has a semi-curved shape that conforms to the natural shape of the foot.

In the outsole of the shoe is the notable Wet Traction Contagrip® technology. It is made from durable material that provides maximum grip on dry, muddy, and wet surfaces. It also gives added durability in high-wear areas.

Present in the midsole is the VIBE technology, which is designed to provide a comfortable underfoot cushioning and high-energy return. The technology is the combination of Opal and EnergyCell+ cushioning compounds.

The Opal cushioning compound is specifically inserted into the midsole for a soft and comfortable underfoot cushioning. It encourages a well-cushioned and bouncy running experience. This compound is lightweight and durable. It also performs well in extreme weather conditions.

The EnergyCell+ compound is designed for high-energy return. The 17mm of EnergyCell+ foam also provides reliable cushioning and added durability.

The shoe also utilizes the thin TPU Profeel Film. It provides underfoot protection while enhancing the ground feel. It also provides stability and consistency in the midfoot area of the shoe.

The upper of the Salomon Sense Pro Max uses a 3D Stretch Air Mesh material that gives the foot a breathable coverage for a well-ventilated running experience. The stretchy upper mesh hugs the foot comfortably for a more customized fit.

Similar to the well known Salomon Sense Ride 2, the mesh upper uses the Sensifit and Endofit technologies. They are designed to give enhanced comfort and a secure fit. The Sensifit overlays wrap the foot for a secure and snug fit while the Endofit provides a seamless environment for a comfortable and sock-like fit.

For an easy-on and easy-off of the foot, the shoe utilizes the minimalistic Quicklace System with friction-free lace eyelets. It facilitates the one-pull tightening and loosening of the lace for a more secure running experience. There is also a lace pocket, which provides a secure storage for the lace, keeping it out of the way while running.
