Using Somnio's, F.E.A.T. (Functionally Engineered Adaptable Tricomponent) SYSTEM, the shoe can be customized with interchangeable foot beds, varus wedges and cushioning inserts. The shoe is customized to the runner's foot in four ways resulting in numerous combinations.
The foot bed offers three variations of the height of your arch. This is invaluable for runners who have uneven arches, flat feet or very high arches. Two inserts for heel and midsole offer varying degrees of cushioning for weight which result in greater comfort and shoe longevity.
And the varus wedges aid in alignment of your foot and knee and help reduce the risk of injury. It's like having an orthodic made for your favorite running shoes.
The Somnio Westridge handles nicely on the trails. They make your feet feel as if they are hugging the ground. The toe box is roomy, but no so much that your foot is sliding; it's comfortable.
The shoes took a bit to get used to because of the initial stiffness in the heel. And even after a few weeks, the heel seemed unusually sturdy. The construction is durable. After two months of running on paved and uneven terrain, they are holding up and have become a favorite.
The Somnio Westridge trail runners are a great investment at $130. They fit like a glove and ride like a dream.
