The marvels of technology allow you to customize your life. Adorn yourself with custom designed and made jewelry and pick-and-choose the toppings you want on the next burger you order. Or be a rebel with a cause and purchase a specialized motorcycle with all the shiny chrome you want.

Somnio goes with the customizing trend and offers the Pacemaker – a lightweight training shoe. The Somnio Pacemaker has external inserts in the forefoot and heel of the midsole. A custom footbed further tailors the fit of the shoe to a person's biomechanical needs.

A Pacemaker weighs in at 10.75 ounces and feels just as light after sliding your foot into it. The customization in the midsole and footbed provide a comfortable fit. The Pacemaker has a mesh upper along with low-set lugs on the outersole.

The biggest advantage to the Somnio Pacemaker is the customization options, but it also can be a negative. It can be tough to find a store that has a Somnio fit expert on staff to determine what is the proper inserts that will give you the ideal fit. The Somnio website walks you through the process for deciding on the customization options for the Pacemaker. But the personal touch from a Somnio fit expert at your local athletic shoe store is hard to pass up.

The Pacemaker feels great on your foot and the customizations made are easily felt when running. Coupled with a high-performing sock, the Pacemaker's mesh upper keeps your foot free of excessive perspiration for longer runs.

Somnio LogoThe Somnio Pacemaker allows you to get the proper fit for a training shoe through customizations to the midsole and footbed. Somnio has a suggested retail price of $135 for the shoe. The Somnio website allows you to locate your nearest dealer or purchase the Pacemaker directly.
