Great Shoes, But Somewhat Deceiving
First off, I want to mention that I like the shoes and conduct thorough research before I purchase any running shoe. When often reading reviews, I run across the slogan "like running on clouds" reference time and time again. I don't find these shoes to be very soft for running. To me, they feel very minimalistic when running. Now I am a midfoot-forefoot striker, so my conclusions are based off of the landing of my feet. However, they are comfortable to walk around in and feel surprisingly light despite the weight. I would not consider this shoe to be a "plush" shoe, but more of a tempo running shoe (which is what I now use it for). For $160, there are much better cushioned shoes on the market besides On. If you enjoy a minimalist feel, then you will love these. If you are expecting Hoka, Asic Gel, and Brooks cushioning, you may not like these. In conclusion, my 3 stars are not a reflection on the shoe itself, but the claims that On has regarding the cushioning.
