THE NEED-TO-KNOW

The net­work of pods, called Clouds, pro­trud­ing from the sole is a hall­mark cush­ion­ing fea­ture of all shoes built by this Swiss com­pany. Whereas ear­lier mod­els fea­tured rub­ber pods, the Cloudflow is con­structed from the com­pany’s unique Zero-Grav­ity EVA foam to re­duce weight and im­prove flex­i­bil­ity. Testers found it a lit­tle firm for ev­ery­day train­ing, but said the shoe ex­cels when go­ing fast.

The upper is made from light­weight, en­gi­neered mesh that uses the lat­est weave tech­nol­ogy, and fea­tures a sock­like in­ner. Testers re­ported it feels soft against the foot.

The tongue is heav­ily ven­ti­lated, and it also has a lit­tle pad­ding to take the pres­sure off the thin laces. The Sweat Shop, Bare­foot Con­cept Store, The Ath­lete’s Foot
