On Cloudsurfer

BackgroundEraser 20240229 103704062

On Running has consistently grown its line of uniquely cushioned shoes. The Cloudsurfer is the latest of its updated models, receiving adjustments all around. The upper has benefitted from refinements to the last that have brought it more in line with accepted sizing standards. (Previously, they were a little short.) Retained is the breathable open mesh and the secure wrap of the foot, though now with a bit more toeroom. The midsole remains pretty consistent—cushiony with good flexibility. The outersole lugs are a bit thicker and harder, so that while still providing a unique ride, they’re more durable. The resulting combination of foam and the compressable lugs provide a ride that’s effective and certainly worth a serious look.
