2010 Summer Shoe Guide Homepage

More than meets the eye, the Pacemaker is a customized lightweight training shoe that can double as a racer for those with special biomechanical needs. Thanks to interchangeable footbeds that help with fit, support and arch height, and cushioning inserts for adjustable heel and forefoot shock absorption and decreased pronation, Somnio permits you to dial in your desired fit, feel and ride. Other than those features, the Pacemaker struck our testers as relatively standard, providing a snug fit, supportive feel and stable ride.
