ON Cloudsurfer 2
The unusual, hard-to-miss design on this shoe comes from the outsole ‘clouds’, which depress on footstrike to absorb impact before springing apart as your foot leaves the floor. They work a treat, said our testers, who were impressed with the bounce, control and traction. Only the long, flimsy laces, which constantly come undone, and the squeaking from the pods in wet conditions – stopped this from being an award contender. Bottom line A curious-looking but effective shoe with plenty of control and bounce.
