Part of the customization includes includes three types of footbed options, cushion inserts with differing densities for the heel and forefoot areas, and varus wedge inserts made to help align the foot and lower leg. Arch comfort, leg alignment, cushioning, foot strike, and pronation control are all things that are of focus when building these shoes. All of these things can help comfort and prevent injury.
You can go to a Somnio store or choose your shoes online. There are very helpful and easy to use videos to assist in building your perfect shoe. The shoes that I needed were the Women's Runaissance shoe which is a neutral shoe in regards to pronation and for people with medium to high arches. Also, I got to choose the kind of cushion that went into the shoes based on my weight. I chose the 2 varus for each foot based on the way that my knee bends. And also got to choose the arch footbed (mine was a high arch).
My Opinion: I LOVE THESE SHOES! I loved being able to customize them and make them perfect for my needs. They fit so well and actually feel like they are made for my foot. My husband came home from work the other night and saw my new shoes and was like "Those are some awesome shoes". Then the next day he said "Did I tell you I love your new shoes?". Haha. Anyways, I would highly recommend these to any runner or person who likes to exercise. My siblings are both cross country and track runners and I will tell them about these shoes to tell their teammates about them. Thank you so much Somnio!!!
