Frequently asked questions (FAQ)

Does the Asics Gel Sonoma 6 fit true to size?

Yes, the fit is true to size: we haven’t yet seen reviews mentioning that the fit is irregular. Therefore, you can purchase your usual size for trail running shoes. Having said that, if this your very first pair of Asics shoes, it may be a good idea to give them a try in a shop to be 100% sure.

I'm a heavyweight athlete. Is the Asics Gel Sonoma 6 suitable for me?

Yes, this model is a good fit regardless of your weight. Indeed, The Asics Gel Sonoma 6 has a moderate stack height, which is enough cushioning for most athletes. So it should be suitable regardless of your weight.

Is the Asics Gel Sonoma 6 suitable to run a marathon?

This Asics trail running shoe is versatile enough to suit different types of distances and workouts. For trail running, it’s all about your preferences. If you can comfortably run long distances in these shoes, they should be a good option for your race. Note, however, that the lugs are moderately deep, which may not be sufficient on very technical terrain.

Is this shoe waterproof?

This shoe is available in two versions: Gore-Tex (GTX) and standard. The regular model repels minor water infiltration and dries quickly with its water-repellent nature. The Gore-Tex version offers more advanced protection that keeps feet dry even in heavy downpours or crossing shallow streams. Nevertheless, note that the Gore-Tex version is more expensive and heavier. So it’s up to you to decide depending on your objectives.
