£120 The cush­ion­ing pods (‘clouds’) on the bot­tom of the shoe is the hall­mark of all the mod­els from this Swiss brand. They might look odd but they do the trick. The idea is that they com­press on im­pact to dis­si­pate shock, briefly lock to­gether to pro­vide a sta­ble plat­form and then spring apart to help push your foot off the floor quicker. Our testers loved the con­trolled bounce and per­ceived en­ergy re­turn they pro­vided – some­thing ON has im­proved from pre­vi­ous ver­sions by mak­ing the clouds from foam rather than rub­ber. Else­where, the light, snug up­per was a de­light for slim-footed run­ners and has also been given an an­timi­cro­bial treat­ment to stop nasty niffs over time. A bril­liant neu­tral op­tion for short-to-medium dis­tances.
