Its upper has a breathable mesh and an updated lug design from the previous versions.
Hands down the best choice for an ultra-marathon with the toughest conditions, the S-Lab Sense 5 Ultra SG is a specialist in wet, muddy trails for its aggressive lug pattern with an embedded rock plate that provides supreme traction and protection. The mesh upper has a reflective material that snugly holds your feet in place while the endofit technology fends off debris while training.
