First impressions

This version improves upon the cushioning from the previous version.

For an alternative, check out the On Cloudsurfer.

Midsole

This new model now uses the brand's new Helion foam. The 18 adaptive cloud elements remain the same but by using the new foam, the shoe has a soft and instantly more comfortable feel, particularly on faster paced runs. The Speedboard remains and offers a sprightly toe-off to give the shoe the benefit of a race-day model yet with cushioning for more everyday use.
 

Upper

The upper has new design tweaks, a more contoured and fitted heel with a new lacing design which again provides an extremely neat and close fit as we expect from the brand.

Sole

The honeycomb slip pattern grips on and off the road while the CloudTec rubber gives high energy return and increased durability.

Conclusion

For fans of the brand and this model the update will feel even better and for those new to the brand it’s a great shoe tempo runs or even racing.
