Champion in SOMs

SHE DID IT! Mary Beth Prodromides won her 5th gold medal at the 2022 World CrossFit Masters Games. We are so proud of her and honored to have our SOM shoes be a part of her incredible journey.

Mary Beth visited our factory this week, and showed us her latest medal! She told us about the Games, the individual events, and how her SOMs helped her throughout the competition. “The happiest my feet have ever been in competition,” she told us. While her competitors changed their shoes depending on the type of event, she kept her SOMs on the entire time, from weight lifting to cardio. They never slowed her down or squeezed her feet, giving her the strength and support for every new challenge.

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:

"Just put ‘em on, and they feel great! Glad I found y'all since I was looking for quality stuff, made in USA (Sorry/not sorry Xero)...They fit great from the get go.” -M.W. of Grand Prairie, TX

"For the past 3 years, I've worn nothing but SOMs. They've been a lifesaver! Finally, a minimalist shoe that is stable / durable / sturdy enough to ride a bike in. For the first year and a half, I wore the Norwoods (back when they were still made with canvas) literally every day -- so good! i got the HiLite (blk) right when they came out and have worn those for the past year and a half -- absolutely love 'em. I can't wait to rock the Nutrail Airs! I also have the Urban Trekkers in steel blue so this'll be my 4th pair of SOMs, and I'll be wearing them all for everything I do, even those original Norwoods. Keep up the good grateful for what we have all created." -G.T. of Atlanta, GA

"Just received my shoes [Trailhead] the other day, tried them on & liked them right away. My wife tried them on also & she liked them also, knowing her, she'll be ordering a pair in the future. Would highly recommend them to anyone. THANK YOU."

-J.D. of Petrolia, PA

  • Thank you all for your years of support! We would not be where we are today without our SOM community, and we love hearing how well your SOMs continue to strengthen your feet.

  • I’ve wore my SOMS for over a year. The other day my wife ask what are wrong with your toes. I said MY SOMS did it. My toes are now separated and independent for greater foot strength.
    Thank you SOMS for teaching me about good foot strength
