Shoe Review: Salomon Sonic 4 Balance

The Salomon Sonic 4 Balance is a great shoe for anyone looking for a mid-weight daily trainer that can handle a lot of miles and moderate speed-work. Although not as soft as some of it’s competitors, what it lacks in plushness it makes up for in responsiveness and ground feel. Overall a solid daily driver.

THE CHANGE:

Fans of the Sonic 3 Balance will be happy to discover the same OPTIVIBE™ vibration dampening technology in the Sonic 4 Balance and an overall similar feeling ride. Major changes come to the fit and materials used in the upper. A softer mesh gives a royal step in feel and an all new integrated inner booty cradles the foot when you pile on the extra miles.
