Made to run
I've ran with Nike LunaEclipse then LunaGlide for over 5 years. I find with each year's new model, their shoes is less and less comfortable, and I slowly have issues with my right foot, so I've been on a mission to find a replacement brand/model.
I decided to give On a try, after trying them at the Vancouver Marathon's expo.To be very honest, it was the aesthetic that caught my attention at first (yes, a bit shallow), but after reading many reviews, seems like it's worth to give it a try. I really like how it's made compare to some bigger brand, and doesn't look as "massive produce". Seems like there were more care in manufacturing the shoes.
I just tested it on my 33km run yesterday, and despite testing it on a long run, my legs and feet felt great. My right foot didn't feel tight at all, compare to the LunaGlide 8. Half way through my run, it started raining pretty hard, and the shoes resisted water quite well. I wouldn't go as far as saying it felt like I was running on clouds, but the foam were very comfortable, more so than other runners I've tried.
Two things I don't like about the shoes: the shoe laces are very good; however, due to the thickness, I find it very hard to tie them tight. I also have relatively small feet, and I really hope they make the shoes one size smaller as I think they will fit better.
Otherwise, I'm happy to have switched to On.
