    Salomon's most thickly cushioned shoe ever, the Sense Pro Pulse is built for runners with a heavier foot strike who want a cushier ride.

  • 89 / 100 | It's All About the Vertical | | Level 3 expert

    Salomon fit with Hoka Clifton cushioning at Stinson weight. Life is compromise!

  • 80 / 100 | It's All About The Vertical | Level 1 expert

    I can recommend the Salomon Sense Propulse as a highly cushioned shoe with very good trail feel and high comfort. But this stability, trail feel, and comfort comes at the price of increased weight when compared to other similar highly cushioned shoes.

Same as in the popular Salomon Sense Ride 2, the Sense ProPulse uses the brand’s High Abrasion Contagrip outsole that delivers impressive grip on the road and it gives added durability on high wear areas. The Wet Traction Contagrip offers reliable traction on wet conditions.


The midsole uses the compressed EVA that is extended in the entire midsole to deliver enough amount of underfoot cushioning. Found in the forefoot is the injected EVA. It also gives underfoot cushioning while running on the road.

The ground feel was maintained through the thin ProFeel TPU film that also gives midfoot protection. And the Propriotection technology delivers added protection without losing the nice ground feel.


The Salomon Sense ProPulse features the open mesh material throughout the upper for a breathable and quick drying coverage. The Sensifit overlays gives comfortable foot wrapping and secure fit while the Endofit element gives a sock-like feel for unmatched comfort and fit.

The shoe features the quick lacing system for easy shoe entry and exit while giving a secure fit. The lace pockets tuck the laces, keeping it out of the way during the entire run. It also comes with an anti-bacterial OrthoLite Sockliner that reduces odor and adds underfoot cushioning.
