Since March 7 I have been training in the Salomon Sense Mantra. When I first got them in the mail I was impressed by the construction of the shoe and how light they were. They had great traction. In fact, I stumbled a few times initially because the shoe gripped the ground so well.
After nearly seven months and 1,135 miles, 300 of them on the road, I have finally moved to my second pair of the Sense Mantras.
The Sense Mantra is everything Salomon claimed them to be and more.They call it a “lightweight training shoe”. I actually think the Sense Mantra would be a great racing shoe!
I highly recommend this shoe to forefoot and midfoot strikers.
