Having previous had 3 pairs of road running shoes from ON (newly converted since Jun 16) I cannot recommend them enough and I was after a shoe that would allow me to run on trail routes; alas the release of the Cloudventure. Arrived 2 weeks ago and I've trained with them over a military training area with differing terrain. The stability is comforting over dynamic trails including steep hills; whether running on sand or loose stones, the sole absorbs the impact that is not felt through onto the foot. They're a must have and although slightly more expensive than other brands, the durability and comfort make them a second to none. Oh and by the way I'm not a pro runner, just for pleasure and personal fitness.
