The Salomon Sonic 3 Accelerate is a lightweight running shoe designed for speed work and racing. It contains Optivibe technology to minimise vibrations to reduce muscle fatigue, and could also in the long term reduce risk of injury.
It has the look of a traditional running shoe, but with a softer, thinner upper. The thin Sensifit upper inner aims to give a glove-like feel on the foot. The external engineered mesh is also light and breathable, with slightly thicker overlays in high abrasion areas. The Ortholite tongue is designed to, over time, mould to your foot to increase comfort and fit. This too is thin to keep shoe weight down. The colorways are all fairly plain, with discreet Salomon branding on the heel and tongue.
The rubber outsole contains Geometric Decoupling to aid efficient heel to toe transitions, and create a stable, medial forefoot platform.
The Sonic 3 Accelerate is recommended for neutral runners looking for a lightweight running shoe for faster runs on the road. If you're a fan of a thin upper, with minimal but comfortable padding, the Sonic 3 Accelerate could be a great choice.
