Anyone tried them?
Just wondered whether anyone has used these shoes and had any feedback?
I am currently recovering from a stress fracture caused by some "barefoot" running trainers. I love the concept, but apparently my feet can't take no cushioning whatsoever.
I'm looking for a lightweight shoe which still provides cushioning for the feet, saw these and liked the concept. Don't want to go out and buy a pair though without speaking/hearing from someone who's already used them!?
Thoughts are appreciated!
I have ran in the On Cloudsurfer and also like a lightweight shoe but found truly minimalist shoes like the Saucony Kinvara too much - not enough cushioning. The Cloudsurfer felt great - really comfy and really bouncy.
However, perhaps not enough like a barefoot running shoe for you - it is a half way house. The Cloudracer is probably a better option and they have been really popular. They are a lower heel to toe drop but still witht he CloudTec cells to provide shock absorption.
Take a look here:
i just cant see those pods lasting many miles, even standing in them and twisting my feet they felt unstable, i wouldnt want to turn hard in them. gimmicky shoe in my oppinion.
They'd probably be ok for just steady running on the roads. I can't imagine them being responsive for doing anything fast though.
