82 / 100 based on 3 expert reviews

  • 79 / 100 by Running Competitor • Brian Metzler • Level 5 expert

    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 by It's All About the Vertical • Robert • Level 3 expert

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

  • 80 / 100 by It's All About The Vertical • 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.

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.
