Off-road long distance mile muncher. Comfortable and their best off-road model to date.
Another shoe targeting the ultra-runner is this new model from On. An off-road counterpart to the brands Cloudstratus shoe, the ‘ultra’ features a similar dual Cloudtec layer midsole to provide the best cushioning the brand has to offer.
Despite what appears a very deep and technical looking midsole, the cushioning is not quite as soft as one would first imagine, but I can attest that after a relatively long trial run of 15 miles the shoes felt quite capable of going and going with the utmost comfort. It’s a stable ride too, without being too rigid or indeed too flexible; the shoe adapts nicely to the contours of various surfaces.
As I always seem to mention when it comes to the brands shoes, the upper fit is fantastic, good quality materials and a beautifully contoured design simply cradle the foot perfectly. A considered design feature is incorporated into the lacing, a ‘Fliprelease’ essentially opens up the laces in the forefoot of the shoe a little, give more ‘breathing space’ as the feet swell in the later stages of an ultra.
Again, this shoe isn’t a ‘mud-plugger’ but designed for extended comfort and protection on firmer trails and the outsole is perfect for that.
For fans of the brand, I think it’s their best off-road model yet and for those tempted by the brand it could be one of their best shoes to date full stop!
