On Cloudrunner

The fourth shoe introduced by On, the Cloudrunner is designed to manage the hardest wear yet. Equipped with the Cloudtec lugs that On is known for, the Cloudrunner has the same setup in the forefoot as the other models have, but in the rearfoot it sports beefier lugs, both in the sidewalls as well as the bottom loops of the medial lugs. The result is that overpronation has much less effect on the Cloudrunner’s ride than it does on the standard lug setup in its other models. That momentary resistance to the pronating forces doesn’t prevent pronation from happening, but it maintains the integrity of the shoe—not to mention its cool feel—for more miles without breaking down. The upper is closed mesh with a sueded lining through the arch and quality ankle collar foam adds comfort. Traditional sueded overlays support the foot. The result is a high-mileage trainer that can manage significant forces, whether from weight, hypermobile feet, or a combination of the two.

Testers: ”The feel is stable and firm. The fit was good, but not really noticeable. Good to run in.”
