Sonoma 6: what’s new?

The 6th iteration remains consistent with its predecessor. It carries over some of the key components like the AmpliFoam and Gel cushioning. You will also recognize a similar breathable mesh with wide pores. But here is what received an update:

  • new last design is supposed to give a better heel and midfoot hold yet more space in the toebox
