When your footwear is well equipped to handle the ever-changing terrain of trail routes, you’ll be able to pay more attention to reaching your goals and to the spectacular scenery around you. The GEL-Sonoma 3 G-TX for men is an extremely durable trail shoe packed with trail specific details to keep you comfortable, stable and supported throughout your adventure. Designed for low to medium mileage runners, the GEL-Sonoma 3 G-TX features a Gore-Tex membrane to keep your feet protected from all weather conditions. Rearfoot gel, EVA midsole and 3M reflectivity offer protection aspects while the trail specific outsole provides grip and support on any surface.
The GORE-TEX water-repellent Gore-Tex laminate is the ideal garment for any outdoor activity. Providing reliable protection against the wind and the weather, the GORE-TEX membrane provides high breathability. Thus, the body is kept dry and cooled during exertion. At rest, the material offers warming comfort.
The 'neutral shoe' or 'cushioning shoe' is equipped without pronation support (the lateral support of the foot). These shoes are therefore suitable for runners who have regular rolling behaviour, i.e. who do not roll their feet inwards or outwards when running. The neutral shoe can be used for competition, for fast training and for long endurance sessions. The damping may vary depending on the application: in order to achieve more direct ground contact during competition, it is advisable to use only a slightly cushioned shoe. When training on hard surfaces or for long distances, more cushioned shoes offer better comfort and protect the joints.
In terms of size: 41.5 ordered (as always at Asics) for a foot of 25.2cm long (size 40.5 in Nike trail shoes) ... fit very well. Width is normal. Wind density is okay. Good muffling.Grip in mud is average ...
Waterproof? ... I do not think 100% (wet socks after running in wet grass, for example) HOWEVER, I have several other Asics trail shoes the previous years and they were 100% waterproof. MODEL 2018 is just water-repellent
Qua maat: 41,5 besteld (zoals altijd bij Asics )voor een voet van 25.2cm lang (maat 40,5 in Nike trail schoenen)...passen heel goed.Breedte is normaal. Windichtheid is oké. Goeie demping.Grip in modder is gemiddeld...
Waterproof?...volgens mij niet 100% ( natte sokken na het lopen in natte gras bvb ) NOCHTANS , ik heb de jaren ervoor andere meerdere trail schoenen van Asics en die waren idd wel 100% waterdicht. MODEL 2018 is gewoon waterafstotend
