Have never heard of these before but came across in a GQ magazine article:
I'm in marathon training at the moment and in the market for some new cushioned shoes for those long, long runs. These look like they could be just the ticket (albeit a bit expensive) but I've nver heard of the brand before.
Does anyone use them and do you like them? Many thanks for any advice.
Cool, thanks for the info, very interesting. As they are a bit different to the norm some proper road/trial testing would be invaluable.
I have switched from Asics to Nike Lunar Glides in last year or so. I love them, they just feel 'right' on road and trail. They do have a habit of trapping stones at the back of the sole actually but apart from the clacking sound when you get back onto pavements I haven't found it a problem!

Also interested in these. Saw some in Alton Sports in Farham yesterday but I was in the market for some new trails so I didn't try them out. Came home to do some research and found very few reviews. A bit on the pricey side though!
Was also in Alton sports looking at new trails shoes the other day and noticed the cloudrunners...... spooky!!!
Did you buy any shoes Nikki??? Ended up ordering some salomon Speedcross3`s from Moti in Reading because there doing a 25% off.. :0)
Also run in TR3`s but won`t be buying another pair, thought they were worth a try for £36 but there heavy and lack the sort of grip required for the typical Autumn/Winter conditins in our area....
Hmm where abouts in the UK are you? If you're in the South east then Up and Running in Camberley are having an On running shoe event next weekend (12th Nov) where they are doing free giveaways with On running shoe purchases. I am not sure the exact retail price in store but I know it is under £120.
Alton Sports are currently selling them online for £114.99 with free delivery from their website.
I brought mine in Up and Running but used my local running club discount. I absolutely love them, best shoes I have ever brought and in my opinion they are worth the higher price tag.
I have noticed they are slightly less 'grippy' in the wet - but that's just compared to the amount of grip in the dry. They are still better than my asics in all conditions. I have also tried them on a 6ish mile off road run and didn't have any problems with stones or uneven running surfaces. I think I'll still use my trail shoes for off-road, especially when it gets a bit muddier!
