the Cloudflyer, the 12 open cushioning pods, are the dominating feature of this stylish and comfortable running shoe. While it takes a few runs to get used to them, they certainly feel less unusual to the foot than they look. They are relatively light, while providing really good impact protection. The mesh allows good airflow in to the shoe, and the toe box is wide and comfortable. They are great for the flat and straight roads or decent pathways, but felt slightly less stable in the wet and off-road. However, some testers found the uppers lacked support, particularly on uneven ground.
