I have been running for over 10 years and tried most brands of running shoe to find that perfect one. I have now found it! The Cloudflyer is perfect for me in every way I can train & race in these shoes I no longer have issues with blisters or sore feet after long runs. I go into races with so much more confidence now. Great show I can't recommend enough.
I've just hit 200 miles in my Cloudflyers and I still absolutely love them. These are my first pair of Ons and previously I had run 300 miles in a pair of Adidas Supernovas with no issue so was unsure whether to change. I definitely made the right decision to switch as again, I have had no issues and I still remember feeling the difference in weight when I took them out of my first run. They are so light it almost feels like you are running barefoot.
They don't look like they will be very grippy from the pictures but I've had no issues running on roads, compacted trails and the odd off road diversion (Canal towpaths/farmers fields etc). I've run everything from 5k to half marathon distance in them and can't fault them.
The only thing I would change is the price but when I come to replace my current Cloudflyers, I doubt i'll choose anything else.
I just started to join races again after my first 5km race way back 2012.
For the past years it was a love-hate relationship with running. I usually go for a 3km to 5km run at least once a quarter as I have been in a stressful and demanding work, I also get bored way past 5km, and the post-running was what I hated the most at my feet just felt sore after the runs. I've tried three different brands (A, N, and S) but they all gave the same result for me.
As my annual physical check-up last year was quite a wake-up call on my overall fitness, I've decided to try running again. I purchased the Cloudflyer and I can say it's lightweight, and it just makes me enjoy long-runs as I didn't get that sore feeling from my feet. I'm able to run past 5km now, and the max I've reached is 12km. The comfort of the shoe just broke my pain and boredom on long-distance running. I recently signed up for a half marathon and will be running with Ons.
The products of On never fail to impress me. I will definitely get another On shoes soon to alternate with my Cloudflyer! And of course when it's time to retire this shoe I'll definitely get another Cloudfyer as well.
