I had serious doubts in regards to the, "Cloud speed lace system". So much that I removed them and inserted the "traditional laces".
After a few runs I decided to give the "Cloud speed lace system" one more try by moving the knots for a tighter fit and I am glad that I did.
These shoes and the lace system are now my #1 running shoes. They are amazing and unbelievably comfortable.
I honestly cannot recommend these enough, thanks!
I may never have to look at another brand again. I bought these in September and have done about 800km in them since. I should get another 200km out of them before I have to replace them which is a good return from a lightweight, fast running shoe. They are extremely comfortable with plenty of room in the toe box. If you like a really stiff racing flat they may not be for you as the ride feels cushioned but you still feel fast. I have heard some complain about getting debris in the grooves but I have never had that problem and have worn them off-road. I would where these for 5km up to a marathon. I procrastinated quite a lot before buying as they are at the top end of what I would normally pay for a running shoe, but I'm glad I finally did because I love them.
I've always been a fan of upstarts who waltz into a scene and shake things up a little for the established players. The cloud is one the most comfortable shoes out there. It's worn everywhere I go and is great for travel and being on your feet all day. The cushioning is fantastic and has helped me get back to running more and easing my back injury. I'm on my forth pair of Clouds. For gym and dynamic activities I'm on the Cloudflyer. Great job guys.
