Since On joined the running shoe world in 2010, the company has released several lightweight trainers that excel at faster paces. But while many of their shoes create a quick and responsive ride, we’ve yet to see a true racing flat design that can perform at the elite level. Now with the Cloudflash, we see a shoe that looks and performs like a traditional racer while still offering the unique Cloud underfoot experience.
Preliminarily weighing in at 7.7 ounces for men and 6.2 ounces for women, the Cloudflash is minimally designed with a thin Speedboard platform separating the foot from the Cloudpods. The added Speedboard will help give the shoe a firm structure with increased energy return upon toe-off. Despite lacking a cushioned midsole, the low-profile Cloudpods should offer sufficient protection while providing optimal responsiveness throughout your race.
With regards to the outsole, CloudTec rubber pads cover eight of the 14 Cloudpods to help with traction and durability. The upper construction features an Exoskeleton design that reinforces the thin mesh material with strategically placed overlays for optimal breathability and structure.
