We welcome spring with new trainers, new ways to shop for factory 2nds, and a new story of athletic drive and inspiration from a 4-time world champion and avid SOM enthusiast, Mary Beth Prodromides. Explore below the new ways we are putting a spring in your step.
Mary Beth Prodromides
One of CrossFit’s most veteran masters champions, Mary Beth Prodromides has joined the SOM family to express her love for barefoot-feel shoes made in America. As an 8-time CrossFit Games masters athlete and the first woman ever to have earned 4 World CrossFit Master's Championships, Mary Beth is an inspiring story of determination, strength, and mental toughness.

Nutrail Air in Limited Edition Red
From CrossFit to weightlifting to other high-intensity training, our Nutrail Air trainers combine the soft-tongue lacing system of our popular Nutrail Cross Sport model with a flexible, high-resistance mesh for enhanced breathability and strength. While the rest of you is sweating, give your toes room to breathe! The Nutrail Air in Red is limited edition, so grab your pair of vibrant, active footwear before they’re gone.
Factory 2nds Store Now Open
We have launched a Factory 2nds Outlet Store to purchase old models, shoes with cosmetic defects, and used footwear at discounted prices. Shoes are categorized by size and will have pictures and descriptions for cosmetic flaws. Sales of clearance shoes are final and not subject to exchanges, returns, or the benefits of Shipping Prime or SOM VIP, like free resolings. We will add more to the store as we go, so check back often for the latest deals.
At the time of this newsletter, we are running an Overstock Sale on select sizes. To make room for new inventory, you can find reduced prices for many of our most popular models.
Recycling Resoled SOMs
When you extend the life of your favorite SOMs with a resoling, we ship the old soles to a recycling plant that breaks the materials down to be reused as crumb rubber for playgrounds and running tracks.
A New Shoe Coming to the SOM Catalogue
Our recent shoe launches have featured several limited edition releases, but later this March, we will unveil the latest regular model to join our SOM catalog. The Norwood Classic is perfect for the office. The HiLite in Black is great for hiking. This new model will feature its own way of helping you move. Follow us on social media, and check the website throughout March to see this latest direction for SOM Footwear.
SOM Recent Reviews
Check out what recent fans of SOM are saying, and if you have a chance, leaving a review not only lets us hear from you, but your feedback helps reach new customers as well!
- “Well the search is over for the perfect pair of shoes. These bad boys [HiLite in Black] are well-made and comfy. I stand all day. Then go out and play in the rain, I am shocked how they grip wet surfaces. I am always on the go and they are great for all activities, also they look good for casual and work. I get them muddy and then toss them in the washer and boom ready to wear them to work. You have a customer for life. But considering how well made they are I only see myself buying a couple pairs in my lifetime because they are so well made! SOM keeps you stepping!” -D.F. of Portland, OR
- “I absolutely am blown away by your company, your values, the quality of the shoes, the fact you offer resoling and the incredible quality of the workmanship (both in the shoes AND resoling). Now I just need to convince everyone else I know to buy these shoes because it's all amazing. You all make a world of difference and I can't thank you enough.” -S.G. of Denver, CO
- “I have narrower feet, but these [Nutrail Air Red] are somehow right on the money with the fit and they're hella comfortable. I don't want to take them off, even just sitting on the couch. Whatever voodoo you guys are mixing into your shoes, keep doing it, because these are awesome!” -O.A. of Oakland Park, FL
