The 410 Sonic ($70) is a simplified running shoe, high on comfort but low on flash. It's subdued enough for casual Friday, but cute enough for weekend fun. It's lightweight and and well ventilated. The shoe's seams are welded sonically, hence the name, reducing the use of environmentally unfriendly glues. The 410 Sonic also comes in a very sleek all-black version.
