The futuristic, ridiculously comfortable and stylish new Cloudgo shoes from the Zurich-based sportswear company On are a revelation. They’re light and they’re neutral, but many of your running shoes also successfully succeed at that. What’s special about the Cloudgo is the energy release system and springs: the bounciness almost creates a lever that makes the propulsion of running in the Cloudgo feel next to effortless. Not “easy,” exactly. But there’s an energy-return system in the design that makes the spring in your step exaggerated, and it’s helpful, and gives additional boost.
The Cloudgo from On, at $169, is a potentially game-changing new sneaker. Perfect for your next half marathon.
