The Grip-Rubber profile of the Cloudventure performs in the most demanding conditions. Its sole is micro-engineered with four distinct levels of grip, so you’re in control on the trail, and the street.
The Cloudventure family is built with an ingenious 2-layer upper: a breathable, light and durable water repellent outer layer, combined with a highly comfortable inner layer that extends on the Midtop to the ankle, for extra protection and support.
The unique lacing of the Cloudventure Midtop distributes support over the whole top of the foot, to avoid pressure points. It is oriented in a diagonal line to follow natural foot movements - you can see it, but you won’t feel it.

“No other trail shoe has the capability to make you feel comfortable, free and confident to tackle what “Mother Nature” throws at you.” - Ben Allen, XTERRA world champion
“Growing up in the Swiss Alps, we learned a thing or two about running in the mountains, which is why the Cloudventure offers so many innovative features for trail running” - Olivier Bernhard, On Co-Founder and six-time Ironman Champion.
Light and fast that you can reach the peak in time to watch the sunrise. Reliable grip for when a thunderstorm catches you by surprise. And clever cushioning to save your legs when you are flying back down to reach the valley before it gets dark. The Cloudventure.
So far I have loved this shoe for trails and as a great looking casual shoe. The mid-top version is designed with an inner bootie and no tongue, which can make putting the shoe on a bit difficult if you have a wider or bigger foot. I wear a regular width size 12 normally and need a shoe-horn to get these on. That said, once they are on they are incredibly comfortable. Hiking on rocky mountain trails, I find the shoes grip and perform exactly as I would like. While the inner bootie design makes it tough to get on at first, it holds your foot in place very well while running or hiking. Wide-footed people may want to consider the other version of this shoe that looks like it has a standard shoe tongue.
Fantastic grip, sock-like fit of inner bootie and very comfortable for long hours out on all kinds of terrain, including tarmac. Ultimately, a game changer in a field crowded with either clunky uncomfortable shoes or minimal models with little protection. Tested them out on the hills of English Peak District in horrible weather and the Cloudventure mid-top passeed with flying colours!
I wore these shoes exclusively the entire trip from bottom to top during our trek to Everest Base Camp. I never had any issues with my ankle rolling, nor did I feel any of the rocks through the shoe. These held up through it all...water...snow...rain...everything. I don't suggest completely submerging them in water, as they aren't completely waterproof, but they were the exact thing I needed for this endeavor. Wearing these with the socks I did, my feet never got cold either. If there was more snow on the ground, I would suggest a heavier hiking shoe, but during the time we went, I didn't need anything further. I absolutely love these shoes!
