Features

  • Upper: Asymmetrical with star-lacing, offering more flexibility where the foot actually needs it. Strong fabric but with a soft feeling wrapping the foot for a more secure fit. Space also for comfort, with a wider fit compared with On standards.
  • Midsole: Dual Cloudtec layer technology gives maximum cushioning, thanks to two layers of Helion foam. It also provides mid-foot support for overpronation. Thanks to the speedboard, which distributes pressure when you land, it's perfect for a midfoot striker who wants something responsive and light but still needs support and cushioning for long distances.
  • Outersole: A wide base provides extra stability, avoiding rolling off the side of the shoe. Instead of having the classic central channel, the Cloudstratus has a single forefoot platform, distributing balance for a more comfortable forefoot landing.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Firmer cushioning, for those who prefer that feel
  • Extra stability
  • Wider fit (compared with other models in the same brand)
  • Customisable lacing system
  • Double cushioning for long distances

Cons

  • Harder cushioning compared with other models in the same category, which some people may not like
  • Because of the 8mm drop, they can be uncomfortable for heel-strikers
  • You can feel the ground more in them, which is not to everyone's taste
  • Flatter grip, so not suitable for all surfaces

In Testing

These shoes are perfect for road and are suitable for all sort of distances. I used them not only for running but also for cycling and gym workouts. They're always comfortable and ready to give me the support I need. I appreciate the fact that they're a wider fit, and also that they have lower drop and a light weight. I definitely recommend them to all those poople like me who prefer to feel contact with the ground and have firmer cushioning.


Verdict

Perfect if you're looking for something to use as a running shoe and also to use everyday, without sacrificing a smart look. They're of special interest to those who need a wider fit but want to try this brand, as they're usually known to be narrow.
