The GEL-SONOMA™ 6 G-TX running shoe is designed for the great outdoors. Taking inspiration from the ASICS trail running family, this shoe is a versatile offering that’s functional for trail runs, light hiking, and other outdoor adventures. We also used fewer resources to colour the sock liner for a more sustainable design approach. This updated version of our trail shoe is complemented with a GORE-TEX™ upper to help keep feet dry in wet conditions. The focus this season was to improve the fit of the upper, so we implemented a new last design that provides a more secure midfoot and heel fit, while the wider toe box allows the toes to spread out. The synthetic stitching on the overlays is designed to improve durability while also helping feet stay secure and reduce slipping. Underfoot comfort stems from a full-length AMPLIFOAM™ midsole and GEL® technology cushioning unit that’s placed where runners need the most impact absorption. To increase the softness with every step, we’ve included an ORTHOLITE™ sock liner for excellent comfort. Additionally, the multi-directional grip outsole improves traction on a variety of surfaces. All of these comfort components are complemented by durable properties, such as the solid rubber outsole—making this shoe a versatile choice for the trails.
