Great fit/grip on the trail-ran 50k out of the box
I ran WS100 in the S/LAB ULTRA and loved the shoe, but it was a little too narrow in the toe box for me. When I saw complaints that the S/LAB ULTRA 2 was even more narrow up front, I was worried, but was very pleasantly surprised when my new S/LAB ULTRA 2's arrived.

My first run out of the box was the 2018 Way Too Cool 50k... 31 miles of cold, muddy, wet trails. I finished the race without a single blister or sore spot on my feet. I was happy to find that the pressure I used to get on my pinky toe-nail (they would normally bruise and I lost them after WS100) with the S/LAB ULTRA 1 was non-existent with this shoe. My feet and toenails were in excellent shape.

The shoe felt a little stiffer than the ULTRA 1, but that's probably because I have several hundred miles on each of my ULTRA 1's and I've forgotten what the shoe felt like when new.

Had to run in them
When I first put them on in my living room, I was skeptical. They seemed to be tight in the toe box and I did not know what to think about the plastic "wings" off the side. I decided to go for a run and see what I thought.

During the first run I was not convinced after the first mile, but the shoes seemed to adjust during the run and I really enjoyed that run. I put in some more miles on paved roads, dirt roads, smooth trials, and rocky trails. Despite my initial impression, I really like these shoes. I was expecting some problems due to the apparently tight toe box, but I had none. They seem to absorb the shock of running without having the dead feel that highly cushioned shoes can. They also feel more nimble than I was expecting on rocky trails.

I will note that I found that I had to go up 1/2 a size compared to my Sense Rides. My Sense Ride is 1/2 a size smaller than what I wear in the Sense Pro 2. The longest run I have done in them is 13 miles thus far, so I don't know how they are going to feel after 50 to 100 miles. I expect well. They did not work well in a few inches of snow, but that is to be expected.

Durability Issues
I bought these in February and since them probably have about about 250 miles on them as I rotate between two pairs of them. There are significant issues in the upper around the toe box in the material and along the honeycomb on the inner and outer. Holes have formed. I am going to be sending a warranty claim to Salomon. Generally the are not receptive of warranty claims and you generally need to push back on them. I don't think a pair of these shoes with 250 miles on them should have holes. I would be curious to know based on the testing they did what the results were for durability.

Exceptional!
I have been running with the first S/Lab Ultra and was excited to try the updated one! Salomon did it right! Great design, when the S/Lab Ultra came in, I went out for a 6 mile trail run, and it felt like a glove! I been a proud customer for Salomon and they never fail me. Thanks for making the exceptional shoes and gear!

Mostly improved
I loved last years S/LAB Sense Ultra (on my 3rd pair of them) so I was a little worried to see all the changes. So far this shoe is just as good, if not better, in every area except for: grip. I have not felt as confident on wet rock in these as I did the 2017 model. And the toe box seems more rigid and less flexible, probably due to all the rubber, it has caused some irritation on my right toe, but I feel like it will go away with some breakin.

The additional protection in the forefront makes everything else worth it. I’d recommend this shoe.

Don’t forget to size down at least 1/2 a size. I wore a 10.5 last year and a 10 in this model fits perfectly

Superb fit -
Didn't think the Salomon fit could get any better, then I tried these. Combined with Sensifit and the new Endofit, a sort of sleeve designed to hug the foot in exactly the right places, the new tongue and upper design (with a neat new way to stash the Quicklace slack really holds your foot in a more comfortable position than ever + allows for great feedback from the trail. I might have to invest in a second pair right now incase they ever stop production! True shoe FOMO.

Worth it!
I am in love with the previous S/Lab Sense Ultras so I had to give the new Ultras a go. I can see now what all the hype is about! This is a great multipurpose shoe that has great traction on all surfaces and seems very durable so far. The Sensifit technology does help provide a nice hold around the foot for some great agility. The shoe feels a bit firmer/stiffer than the older model yet the upper has plenty of give. The only downside for me is that the toe box is a bit too narrow. Otherwise, great shoe all around!

Similar feel as the first version. Sizing is off.
I'm going to just start by saying I love the first version of this shoe. I went through 4 pair of them last year. When I saw the updated version I was skeptical. Mainly because it looked like they had made significant changes.

When I first put this shoe on I noticed a few things:

First, the upper has a lot more going on and it makes it more rigid. However, after a couple miles the upper seemed to loosen up and ultimately I didn't have any issues with it.

Second, I'm happy to say that once I started running in these I noticed that the cushion, flexibility and all of the things I loved about the first version still feel relatively the same. This was a huge relief. I'm looking forward to using these for my primary shoe again this year.

BUT....there's one issue: the sizing runs big. I've been wearing S/labs for about 4 years and 11.5 has always fit perfect. These run about a half-size big (I should've ordered an 11). The sizing difference is my biggest frustration since I ordered these online and I'm now stuck with a pair of shoes that are too big.

Bonus: they redesigned the quick-lace pocket in the tongue and it's now much easier to use!

Overall another good version of the S/lab Ultra. I just wish the sizing was consistent with every other Salomon shoe I've owned. I'm crossing my fingers that they don't make any significant overhauls to this shoe in the future.

I prefer the old one .
I bought the shoes two months ago, after about 100 kilometers, the sole began to separate from the shoe, the shoe is wider than the previous model and it takes half a measure or one less. I am very unhappy with the shoe and would not recommend it because it is falling apart after a short distance of kilometers.

I want to love it..., but I don’t.
The wings put pressure on the sides of your feet that hurt over time. I was hopeful they would break in. I’ve put around 100 miles on so far. They do not take Salomon gaiters very well, even though they’re designed for ultras. They’re less comfortable than Pro Max Sense, less agile than Speedcross 4s. They seem like they would be a perfect all around shoe for ultramarathoning, however the more I run them the more I feel they’re okay at everything and the master of none. I ran 1/2 trail marathon two weeks ago. Doing a 50 next week, unfortunately, these shoes that I thought would be my go tos will be side lined. Bringing some of my past Salomon models for the job.
