FIRST LOOK: ON CLOUDVENTURE
On Cloudventure – $150 – Trail Runing Shoe from On Running
The anticipated second edition of the trail running shoe the Cloudventure from On Running has arrived. The Cloudventure is a lightweight trail shoe line with full cushioning from the Swiss running company.
The shoe designers have upped the ante by making the newest version more durable (a
much requested improvement) and versatile, thus giving runners more cushioning and protection uphill and downhill while also ensuring that explorers can travel farther than ever before.
FEATURES: ON CLOUDVENTURE
What's new with the On Cloudventure
The Missiongrip outsole on the new Cloudventure is now much “stickier” with the special rubber compound that gives great traction even on smooth surfaces. Add to this
the new grip studs and re-engineered square Cloud elements further help the shoe bite into the trail and propel with each step.
One of the best improvements of the new Cloudventure is its better durability – a must for a
trail shoe. Thanks to the high-grip rubber compound fused over Zero-Gravity foam, plus the Missiongrip outsole, these clouds are meant to help you soar farther than ever.
The new Cloudventure Speedboard is also specifically
engineered to drive forward off-road, mostly by being narrower at the midfoot and providing extra torsion. It works with the natural motion of the foot while going over varied terrain.
Finally, the new precision heel fit
gives a secure feeling, especially while running downhill. What goes up, must come down afterall.
What remains the same?
A same light and comfortable two-layer upper that provides technical engineered
mesh for ventilation and cooling, even if wild and tough climbs.
The Cloudventure has the same lightweight no-sew eyestay construction and the varied traction pattern once again helps to provide grip even on smoother trail
and road surfaces.
