Ultrarunners need a shoe that is committed to the long haul - ample cushion, durability, protection, and support - all without weighing you down. Thankfully, the Salomon S/Lab Ultra 3 has got your back, err, feet. The trademark of any ultra shoe is lots of cushion but unfortunately, sometimes that means energy-sapping squish. Not here. EnergyCell+ is a durable high-rebound midsole compound that not only brings the cushion, but is also designed to provide springy energy return. And since ultras often run the gamut (pun intended) of trail conditions, a diverse outsole like the Contagrip MA is ideal for tackling everything from wet and loose to dry and rocky. The mesh upper is breathable, yet abrasion-resistant while an integrated gaiter fends off trail debris from entering the shoe. For those long days on trail, the Salomon S/Lab Ultra 3 is a fully-featured, lightweight shoe that won’t squander an ounce of your energy.
