The Salomon Men's Sense Mantra 2 Trail Running Shoe knows running is your salvation and your personal slogan is "farther and faster." With a retooled outlook for improved fit and performance, this shoe turns your variable terrain dreams into reality. A middling 6mm drop makes your midfoot strike magnificent, and a blend of cushioning keeps the ride sweet from beginning to end. While the Mantra 2 is a hair heavier than its half-sibling, the Sense Pro, both shoes are designed for multiple surfaces and long-distance runs. Whether you start in town or on the dusty trails, the Mantra 2 makes running seem other-worldly. The mesh upper gets kept in line by external Sensifit stays. Lateral motion isn't a liability and breathability isn't an issue. Seamless Endofit on the inside wraps your paw for firm footing on any ground without the threat of stitching to thwart your soft soles. Friction-free eyelets turn the Quicklace system into a sonic-speed system. A handy lace pocket hides the extra string so you're only tripping daisies, and not all over your laces. The middle is anything but mediocre. Two discrete layers are molded into the tightly hewed racing last for a powerful combination of ground feel and paw protection. A whisper-thin layer of TPU fends off sharp sticks and prickly rocks without running interference between the earth and your foot. Different types of EVA cooperate to soften your mid-to-forefoot gait so every footstrike is softer than the next. Dynamic traction lugs turn the non-marking Contagrip outsole in a greedy piece of sticky rubber to keep your forward momentum vertically inclined.
